Triton Parent & Family Ambassador

Parents and families play an important role in their student’s educational journey. One student’s experience at UC San Diego will differ from other students, which means the ways in which that student is supported will differ from how other students are supported by their family. Triton Parent & Family Ambassadors share how they support their student’s college experience with other family members and the UC San Diego community. No matter your hometown or country, or family make-up, every family member possesses life skills and knowledge that support their student’s college experience. Request to be a Triton Parent & Family Ambassador today!
