MEET OUR AMBASSADORS

Meet our 2016 -2017 CTAHR Ambassadors ...

Student Ambassadors are CTAHR student and alumni volunteers. It is the purpose of Student Ambassadors to recruit prospective students, to encourage student interest and participation in CTAHR, and to positively portray CTAHR to the University and community at large. 

Student Ambassadors represent the college in a variety of ways. They give presentations about college life, the different majors within CTAHR, and career opportunities available with a degree from CTAHR. They represent CTAHR at information and career/college fairs and are available for shadowing by prospective students. Ambassadors are available to travel to any high school or community college in the state of Hawai‘i to make a presentation. They are more than happy to take prospective students to their classes and on a tour of the UH Mānoa campus.
