Study Abroad Ambassadors
The Study Abroad Ambassador Program was created during the Fall of 2012 as part of an increased effort to promote international education abroad from a student perspective and foster friendships with exchange students. The Study Abroad Ambassadors also work to give study abroad returnees the opportunity to share their experiences with their peers after having studied, lived, and traveled abroad. They run the Study Abroad Club and plan activities around campus to help get students excited about traveling abroad and provide information and advice to students who are looking to study abroad in the future.
