Honors Ambassadors

Honors Ambassadors

Honors Ambassadors are student recruiters for the Honors Program, who meet with prospective students and their families at various Honors and campus-wide events.  Honors Ambassadors also recruit current Villanova students to the Honors Program.  Comprised of nearly fifty students from all colleges at Villanova, the Honors Ambassadors are active and dedicated members of the Honors Program who wish to share their experience in Honors with students who are making college decisions and declaring their majors.
