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.

"As an English and film double major, I'd like to be some sort of editor, ideally a fiction editor. I love writing, but even more than that, I love helping others write. I love how big UMD is, both the campus and the size of the community. There is always something to do."

"I started as a public health major and found my home in the college as a history major and global poverty minor through much trial and error. Keep your options open and do not forget to reach out for support! I'm hoping one day to work in either patient advocacy or nursing."
