University Honors

Our Mission

University Honors challenges motivated students to create their own world-class education. The program supports students' efforts to take advantage of all that a major research university offers in the intimate setting of a smaller academic community. Integral to undergraduate education at Virginia Tech, University Honors provides leadership in innovative and extraordinary learning opportunities.

Honors Ambassadors

The Honors Ambassadors program is a student-led Honors organization created to facilitate engagement among Honors students and alumni. Meet the Ambassadors
