Cardinal Hosts

Cardinal Hosts are selected from the student body to represent the Office of the President to guests and visitors.

Chosen through a competitive selection process, Cardinal Hosts serve in a high-profile position to help promote greater understanding of William Jewell College, its current programs and its history. Cardinal Hosts originated during the tenure of First Lady Virginia Field, who served the College with her husband President Thomas Field from 1970 to 1980. Originally assigned to assist in the President’s Home, Cardinal Hosts now function in a variety of roles, including hosting visitors and dignitaries and interpreting the identity of the College to multiple audiences.
