Our Honors Ambassador team averages 17 members during the academic year. During the school year, time commitments will vary depending on the events the Honors College is offering. Honors Ambassadors attend monthly meetings for ongoing training and professional development and have check-ins with Honors Ambassador advisors.
During the summer, a smaller group of Honors Ambassadors assists with New Student Orientation.
