WHO ARE HONORS AMBASSADORS?

WHAT DO HONORS AMBASSADORS DO? Each Honors Ambassador will serve as a mentor to approximately 10 incoming freshman. Ambassadors will be assigned their mentees based on the Freshman Orientation program date they are assigned and expected to attend to meet their mentees. Throughout the summer, the Ambassador is expected to stay in touch with their mentees. Ambassadors are required to attend the Freshman Retreat onFriday August 19th to reconnect with their mentees. For the Fall semester, Ambassadors will be assigned one of the four tasks: blog for the Ampersand Newsletter about their experience in the Honors College, serve as a PAPH Ambassador (be of service during PAPH week), serve as an HON 101 Teaching Assistant, or serve as an Activities Coordinator for HAMBS-Sponsored events. The term of service continues into the Spring in further support of Honors College Admissions activities. Honors Ambassadors must be in good standing with the Honors College by the end of the Spring 2016 semester. Applications can be submitted online (https://uofi.uic.edu/sb/sec/772161) and the application deadline is March 31.
