Honors Student Ambassadors

About the Program

Honors Student Ambassadors represent the college in various ways

Honors College students come from 39 states and all 55 counties in West Virginia. They can be found in academic colleges across campus. Our Honors Ambassadors love to share their experiences with WVU and the Honors College. Have a question for our Ambassadors or want to learn more about the Honors Foundations Program? Email us at or reach out to an ambassador directly via their email below.

How To Get Involved

Want to get more involved in the Honors College? Apply to become an Honors College Ambassador, and share your love of the Honors College with current/prospective students and alumni!

Ambassadors represent the Honors College for recruitment events, engage with alumni/donors, and help shape new programs and initiatives. Taking ownership of the Honors College experience, these students will work to promote the Honors College to external and internal audiences and to provide a student voice to Honors administrators.
