How does your ARHU story begin? Meet our students and alumni, who, just like you, are writing and living out their ARHU stories to “Be Worldwise. Get Worldready."

Meet Our ARHU Ambassadors

The ARHU Ambassador Program allows new and prospective students to benefit from the knowledge and experiences of someone who has “been there.” During recruitment and ARHU events, our Ambassadors share the narrative of their experiences in ARHU and at UMD to prospective students and families, current students and prospective employers. By connecting with new students and providing a voice for current ARHU students, Ambassadors understand the contributions that humanists, artists and creators make in the world, which allows them to contextualize and articulate their own experiences in ARHU and at UMD.
