Honors College Ambassadors

Honors Ambassadors is a student-run group of current honors students who represent the Honors College at open houses, question and answer panels and other recruitment events. Honors Ambassadors are available to host prospective students on select days during the year. Host-a-Days allows new students to explore the everyday life of an Honors student, from classes to campus activities. Honors Ambassadors are the bridge between prospective and current Honors students, and a powerful resource for attracting students to UMD.

Meet Our Student Coordinators

Hi! My name is Aaron Solomon, and I am a senior studying cell biology and computer science. I am a member of the Integrated Life Sciences living and learning program, and I am truly ecstatic to be serving as an Honors Ambassador Student Coordinator this year. My academic interests lie in the area of computational genomics and personalized medicine, and I research cancer genetics at the University of Pennsylvania and here at Maryland. I joined Honors Ambassadors in the spring of my freshman year, and love working with current students and incoming freshmen to show off all Maryland has to offer. I look forward to a fantastic year with all of you. Please contact me if you have any questions, and Go Terps!

Hello! I’m Devika Haridas, and I am a sophomore in the Honors Humanities LLP, studying public health science. Outside of Honors Ambassadors, I work as a medical scribe, and I’ve participated in population genetics research at the National Museum of Natural History. I joined Honors Ambassadors during my freshman year because I love helping to show prospective students and their families all that our Honors College has to offer – especially the opportunity to explore areas outside of your major. Honors Ambassadors is also so special to me because we get to take part in bringing new students into our incredibly diverse and bright student community here at Maryland. I am so excited to serve as one of your student coordinators, and I look forward to a wonderful semester! Go Terps!

Hi! My name is Kirby Rhodes. I am a junior pursuing dual degrees in finance and public health science and I am a member of the University Honors living and learning program. I joined Honors Ambassadors in my first semester freshman year because I love to talk to prospective students and families about the many opportunities the Maryland Honors College has to offer, and look forward to serving as an Honors Ambassador Student Coordinator during the next two semesters. Outside of the Honors College, I am involved with the Maryland English Institute and work at the National Institutes of Health. If you have any questions about the University of Maryland Honors College or Honors Ambassadors, please feel free to contact me. Go Terps!
