Comprising nearly 50 students from all undergraduate colleges at Villanova, the Honors Ambassadors are active and dedicated members of the Honors Program who wish to share their experience with students who are making college decisions and declaring their majors.

Honors Ambassadors are student recruiters for the program who meet with prospective students and their families at various Honors and campus-wide events. They also recruit current Villanova students to the Honors Program.

Honors Ambassadors Events

  • Academic Majors Fair
  • Early Action Candidates’ Day
  • Candidates’ Day
  • Afternoon with Honors
  • Individual Prospective Student Visits
