Honors Ambassadors assist the Dorothy and Bill Cohen Honors College in the recruitment of future Honors students. Honors Ambassadors represent the Honors College at various events and activities across campus. They help the Honors College in a variety of ways including but not limited to:
- Mingling with students and parents at programs
- Serving on student panels
- Hosting information tables
- Providing their perspective on WSU and the Honors College
- Attending events hosted by the Honors College
Honors Ambassadors have the ability to impact other students by sharing their personal stories and experiences. They have the opportunity to meet many current and prospective students while giving back to the Honors College and the WSU community. These experiences can enhance their Honors and collegiate experiences.
Honors Ambassadors volunteer about 10-15 hours per year.
