What's New At Honors: 11-14-2012

Commonwealth Honors College (CHC) is seeking applications for the CHC Peer Ambassador Program. This is a leadership opportunity within the External Student Recruitment unit of Commonwealth Honors College.


Peer Ambassadors participate in the recruitment of prospective students by conducting information sessions about the benefits of CHC (scholarship, research, programs, leadership, community building, networking, and social and cultural competencies). The Peer Ambassadors also participate on student panels at various events when necessary, and provide support for all tasks that enhance External Student Recruitment. This is a paid position which provides valuable leadership, public speaking experience, and consumer skills.


Applicants for this position will be required to:

(1) register and participate in a one-credit practicum offered on the weekend of February 9 and 10, 2013 and

(2) shadow current Peer Ambassadors at Spring 2013 recruitment events.


We are especially interested in applications from students with some experience in public speaking, problem solving skills, great interpersonal skills, and knowledge about the Honors College. Applicants must be a member of Commonwealth Honors College in good standing.
