Honors students are involved on campus through a wide variety of organizations. They participate actively in clubs, volunteer diligently, and compete in research across multiple disciplines. Any awards or achievements earned by Honors students can be seen on the News page.
The Honors Ambassadors program is a student-led initiative composed of volunteers, which strives to improve the Honors College and the community through service, leadership and innovation. Ambassadors help the Honors College tremendously, and each Ambassador is entitled to a sense of achievement because of his or her contribution to the on-going success of the College. Aside from this intangible reward, students can benefit from the program by making connections with other honors students and developing numerous professional skills. Honors Ambassadors is open to any interested Honors student. Students wishing to volunteer should contact the Honors College at firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest and to preference up to two committees they wish to join.
There are four Honors Ambassadors committees that reflect four significant areas of focus within the Honors College: Programming, Philanthropy, Marketing, and Recruitment.
This committee's main focus is service initiatives with multiple organizations in the community. This year, students will be working closely with the Student Programs student employee team to plan two service-related Living Learning trips.
