So your plane has touched ground on U.S. soil, and all you can think of is the day you landed on foreign ground. Your global journey does not end here! Fortunately there are plenty of opportunities to keep your study abroad experience alive!
The Global Studies Student Ambassador Program is an exciting leadership program designed to give Study Abroad alumni the chance to share their experiences with the St. John's community as well as those students who are considering a study abroad program.
Global Ambassadors serve as liaisons to the student population to keep them informed of Study Abroad events on campus through various Global Studies information sessions, table days, etc. The program will also offer Ambassadors the chance to pitch and sponsor Global Studies events.
The benefits of the program are two-fold: 1) Global Ambassadors are granted the rewarding opportunity to help guide students toward a life-changing Study Abroad experience. 2) Global Ambassadors are given the platform to hone their public speaking and interpersonal communication skills that serve as invaluable résumé boosters.
