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.

Honors Ambassadors are expected to devote at least 5 hours a month to public- and university-facing events, at which they are expected to be the “face” of the Honors College and to wear Honors College apparel. Such events include but are not limited to campus lectures, performances, student organization events, sporting events, and more. Participation at such events is driven by the students’ interests and personal availability.

Honors Ambassadors additionally are expected to have a minimum of three “office hours” in Hillcrest House per month (office hours are scheduled at the Ambassador’s convenience. Ambassadors may use their time in Hillcrest House for studying and/or socializing, but will also make themselves available for prospective student visits and greeting/getting to know other current Honors students who drop by.

Honors Ambassadors also will be expected to assist in formal recruitment events, including fall Open Houses, CHOICES, and Orientation. 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 College prior to the Spring 2020 start date and must be in good standing.

Ambassadors are expected to be available for biweekly meetings for ongoing training and professional development. Applicants must be available on Wednesdays from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m.

The application to be an Honors Ambassador is due by midnight on Friday, January 24, 2020 for calendar year 2020 positions. For the inaugural Ambassadors class only, applicants graduating in Spring 2020 may apply and serve a half term. All other applicants must commit to serve as an Ambassador for a full calendar year. Ambassadors in good standing may opt to continue their service for another term at the end of Fall 2020 semester.

When reviewing applicants, our goal is to have a well-rounded group of Ambassadors who can speak to many aspects of the Honors student experience. We will notify applicants via email if they are selected for an interview. Interviews will be held on February 5, 2020 and February 7, 2020. Notifications of selected Ambassadors will be given by Friday, February 14, 2020.
