The Kilachand Ambassadors are Kilachand Honors College’s official student hosts and representatives. The Ambassadors will contribute to a variety of events for Kilachand Honors College and will assist administrators in recruiting new students. Ambassadors serve as liaisons between the Kilachand Honors College and visitors and will represent the highest ideals of the University, Kilachand, and fellow classmates.
Specific responsibilities include but are not limited to communicating with prospective students, meeting with and giving tours to prospective students and their families during campus visits, and attending and assisting with Kilachand Honors College events such as Open House luncheons, Information Sessions, and Parents Weekend events.
Peer advisors are juniors and seniors who help freshmen navigate academic, extracurricular, and social opportunities at Kilachand Honors College and Boston University. From their first communication with incoming students during the first week of classes, advisors will offer support and assistance to their advisees as they navigate the first year. Peer Advisors are associated with individual rooming groups to build community through study breaks and other events. Peer advisors are part of the first-year advising network comprising academic advisors, resident assistants, and the resident director.
Each Peer Advisor will work with a group of advisees, within Kilachand Hall or Kilachand House, matched by extracurricular and academic interests. Advisors meet with their advisees both individually and in groups in order to help them make the most of what Boston University and Kilachand have to offer. Advisors help build community through bi-monthly study breaks and through Kilachand social events.
