International Student Ambassadors

International Student Ambassadors

The International Student Ambassador Program is a volunteer program coordinated by the Office of International Student Services for current international students. Students selected to be ambassadors will be leaders at new student orientation, assist with OISS annual events, and submit content to be published on OISS social media, emails, and websites. Through this program, ambassadors can expect to gain leadership and communication skills, be a representative for the OISS office, and connect with new international students. To be an International Student Ambassador, please contact the Office of International Student Services at
