Meet Our Students and Alumni

ARHU Ambassadors

Representing nearly every ARHU major, ARHU Ambassadors assist with recruitment events and foster connections to help first-year students transition to academic and campus life at the University of Maryland. Ambassadors are active in campus activities such as the Honors College, College Park Scholars, the Language House, Jimenez-Porter Writer’s House and Student Government. ARHU Ambassadors also have a Peer Mentoring Program that allows incoming ARHU freshmen and transfer students to be paired with an ambassador to answer questions on academic success and campus life. For more information on the program, visit ARHU Peer Mentoring Program. For updates, follow the ARHU Ambassadors on Twitter @ARHUAmbassadors.
