Honors Ambassadors assist new students joining the Honors College in their transition to the university and the Honors College community. Throughout the summer, Ambassadors reach out to new students and attend summer orientation sessions to meet new students and answer their questions. For the Fall semester, Ambassadors will be involved in a variety of activities to help new students adjust to UIC and the Honors College, including speaking to HON 101 Freshman Orientation Seminars about relevant topics, volunteering at Honors College admissions recruitment and interview events, organizing events to welcome new students and build community, and performing additional outreach to prospective and new students. For current Honors College students interested in becoming an Honors Ambassador, applications will be available in late Fall.
