Honors Ambassadors, students with commitment and passion for the Honors Program, have volunteered their time over many years!
Student Ambassadors are an integral part of the recruitment of new high-achieving students and outreach initiatives for the SAS Honors Program.
Ambassadors are trained early in the spring semester for participation in the SAS Honors Program Scholars Days luncheons in collaboration with faculty mentors and serving as panelists for prospective students and parents. Student ambassadors serve as the Honors Program's representatives for new students. They can provide answers to many of the questions that new students may have about scheduling, social events, sports or life on campus in general.
Our Ambassadors and their talents have been increasingly called upon for other university-wide functions such as hosting prospective students for campus visits, Open House, Rutgers Day and APA Days.
Honors Ambassadors' Testimonies:
"When I was looking at colleges while in high school, I came to Scholars Day and was incredibly impressed by the student ambassadors. Now, I get to be a part of that: helping high school seniors decide where to spend the next four years by introducing them to the myriad opportunities afforded to SASHP students."
"Something I've loved about serving as a SASHP Ambassador is when some of the Ambassadors in the grades below me have come up to me and shared that I talked to them when they were potential freshmen attending Scholars' Days. It is interesting to see how it all comes full-circle!"
"I love being an honors ambassador because I love telling incoming students about how I fell in love with Rutgers, how the campus, the programs, the football, and the abounding opportunities shifted my mindset from wanting to transfer out of Rutgers to now representing our university at events such as these. "
"Being an Honors Ambassador for the 3rd year now, I still love meeting all of the incoming students and hopefully inspiring them as they start their college careers. The opportunity to share my knowledge and love of this university has been an amazing experience that I’m so lucky to be a part of."
"Participating in the Student Ambassador Program has allowed me to not only help incoming freshman make one of the most important decisions of their lives thus far but it has also allowed me to truly appreciate all of the opportunities I was given when I decided to become a part of the SASHP. "
