Lyle Ambassadors

Lyle Ambassadors is the premier organization of the Lyle School of Engineering. While our primary function is to help recruit the incoming freshman engineering class, we are the face of the Lyle School of Engineering throughout the engineering, SMU, and Dallas communities.


Recruitment: Why did you choose Lyle Engineering? What courses do you take your freshman year? Where should I live on campus? What does an engineer DO? These are just a few of the questions we help prospective students and families find answers to when they visit the Lyle School of Engineering. Every member of Lyle Ambassadors has a unique story to tell about their SMU experience – lab research, leadership positions on campus, studying abroad, co-ops, you name it… – and these stories are Lyle’s greatest asset when it comes to student recruitment. As a prospective student, you will appreciate our members’ candid perspective on life at Lyle and SMU. As a member of Lyle Ambassadors, you will not only help others find their college home, but you will also become friends with some of the finest members of the Lyle School of Engineering.

The Face of Lyle: Lyle Ambassadors devastates all myths that engineers are nerds who spend all their time in a lab. Every fall, Lyle Ambassadors leads the effort to represent the Lyle School of Engineering in the much-beloved SMU Homecoming parade by building a parade float. Every spring, our members participate in Sing Song, one of SMU’s favorite student traditions that has them singing and dancing on stage. Our ambassadors also hold leadership positions across campus in organizations ranging from Greek life to religious life to campus programming. Beyond the SMU community, Lyle Ambassadors is the face of SMU Lyle through community service projects including Habitat for Humanity and The Stewpot.
