Study Abroad Global Ambassador Program
Study Abroad Global Ambassadors are Princeton students who have studied abroad and would like to encourage their fellow Princeton students to go abroad as well. Ambassadors participate in events across campus sponsored by our office, and work closely with OIP staff to enhance the visibility and popularity of study abroad.
Students want to hear from their peers! Your anecdotes, advice, and expertise are our best resource for students who are thinking about study abroad.
There are many ways for Global Ambassadors to get involved! Members can volunteer their time and energy in the following capacities:
- Outreach. Global Ambassadors reach out to interested students via email or in person to provide information and recommendations about their experience.
- Information Sessions. The Study Abroad Program hosts informational meetings for specific countries or regions. These meetings are much more engaging when Global Ambassadors are present to share their stories.
- Pre-Departure Meetings. Each semester we hold a number of site-specific pre-departure meetings in addition to the general mandatory pre-departure meeting. Your perspective and input is extremely helpful.
- Study Abroad Fair, Academic Expo, and Student Activities Fair. Your enthusiasm can make all the difference in someone's decision to study abroad! The Study Abroad Program hosts information tables where peer advisers help by staffing tables, showing pictures, talking about their experiences abroad, and answering questions from fellow students.
Ambassadors will be invited to a special welcome event at the beginning of the semester, where they will meet other members, share their experiences, and learn about the different ways to participate throughout the year.
