New Student Orientation Program
Interested in intercultural exchange? Want to meet students from all over the US and the world? Ready to learn about new cultures and have your beliefs challenged? Then join the Global Ambassador Program (GAP)! GAP is a year-long international dialogue program that breaks down intercultural barriers and fosters friendship between domestic and international students. The program matches students of different races, nationalities, sexual orientations, and class years, and provides a safe(r) space for discussing topics such as culture shock, identity, and family traditions, among others. Ambassadors participate in monthly large group dialogues led by student facilitators. Ambassadors also participate in monthly smaller peer group gatherings for additional bonding opportunities, intercultural activities, and discussions. During this session we’ll explain what we do in GAP, how to apply, and you’ll get a chance to participate in an example activity! Visit our website for more information.
