"After spending an amazing semester in Vienna, I was so thankful for my experiences that I wanted to encourage as many students as possible to study abroad. As a global ambassador, I was able to share my enthusiasm about studying abroad with other students by answering their questions and confirming their beliefs that studying abroad is one of the best opportunities available to undergraduate to add value to their degree."
- MacKenzie Seale | Fall '10 study abroad student
The Global Ambassador Program
The Global Ambassador Program invites returning study abroad students and current international exchange students to help promote study abroad by speaking to students about what it is like to live and study overseas. By sharing your personal experiences of living in or being from another country, we hope that many more students will go on exchange and immerse themselves in new and fascinating cultures around the world!
- Returning Study Abroad Students - This is a great opportunity for current McCombs students to hear firsthand about your study abroad experience and for you to talk about what it’s like to live and study overseas, share any interesting cultural observations about your host country, provide words of advice (student life, travel, classes), and encourage students to also study abroad.
- International Exchange Students - You'll get the chance to tell prospective McCombs study abroad students all about your country and what it's like to study at your institution.
Based on the student's availability, Global Ambassadors are asked to participate in at least two to three promotional events during the semester. Events may include speaking at study abroad information sessions, student organization presentations, Freshmen Interest Group (FIG) classes, freshmen recruiting events, kindergarten through fourth grade outreach programs, or Family Weekend.
