Honors Admissions

Honors Ambassadors

Honors Ambassadors serve as front-facing customer service representatives. They promote our values, serve as advocates, and exemplify what it means to be an honors student by sharing their own experiences. Honors Ambassadors host Virtual Information Sessions, answer email inquiries, and perform administrative tasks for honors faculty and staff.

Honors Ambassadors are available to answer questions via email at honorscollegetours@honors.usf.edu
