Honors College Ambassadors Application
Honors Ambassadors prepares current students to showcase the Honors College by sharing how it has contributed to their collegiate experience. Ambassadors provide positive student contact for prospective students and their families, for current students, and for campus and community partners. Honors College students can be found in every corner of campus, and Honors Ambassadors help increase the College’s visibility and impact.

For the academic year 2022-2023, there will be opportunities each month for Ambassadors to 1) watch asynchronous content to learn about different areas of campus (required); 2) take an optional tour of a part of campus; 3) participate in an optional social event; and 4) attend a committee meeting (required). Ambassadors are also expected to spend at least 3 hours in Hillcrest House per month and 2 hours at public- and university-facing events, at which they are expected to be the “face” of the Honors College and to wear Honors College apparel.

Honors Ambassadors also will be expected to assist in formal recruitment events, including fall Open Houses, CHOICES, and Orientation. These obligations may be a mix of virtual and in-person formats.

Generally, responsibilities may include:
•Assisting with information sessions where Ambassadors present to prospective students and share about their experiences in the Honors College;
•Assisting with outreach efforts to prospective students and their families;
•Attending alumni receptions, meeting with visitors, responding to inquiries from prospective students, recruiting new Honors Ambassadors, and other duties as assigned.

Applicants must have completed at least one semester in the Honors and must be in good standing.

We want the Honors Ambassadors cohort to be made of up diverse students whose backgrounds and majors speak to the wide array of prospective students interested in JMU. We specifically hope that BIPOC, first generation, and LGBTQIA+ students will want to join our Ambassador community. We also encourage Spanish-speaking students to apply. Our goal with Fall recruitment is to add enthusiastic Honors spokespeople to make our cadre of Ambassadors more representative of the campus as a whole. We will be adding approximately 10 new Ambassadors to our group, and we are particularly looking for folks with majors in the College of Education and the College of Visual and Performing Arts. Regardless of major, students from states other than Virginia are also encouraged to apply.

We will notify applicants via email if they are selected for an interview. The application to be an Honors Ambassador is due by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, January 28, 2022. Selected Ambassadors agree to serve a one-year calendar term (February 2022 to February 2023). We will notify applicants via email if they are selected for an interview. Interviews will be held the week of January 31, 2022.
