The PackAbroad Ambassadors are a student group for study abroad returnee’s. This is a great opportunity to get together with other students who have studied abroad while encouraging even more students to study abroad.
What do They Do?
The ambassadors reach out to students through tabling, orientations, classroom presentations, meet and greets, peer advising, the study abroad fair, and so much more. Certain groups around campus – classes, student organizations, residence hall programs, etc. – want to hear about study abroad from their peers. Enthusiastic, passionate students typically give a 10-20 minute presentation about the different study abroad opportunities offered at NC State with special emphasis on personal experiences and stories. Modifications can be made to these presentations based on the audience, the student’s experience, or interest in a specific region/country.
The Ambassadors also get together and have speakers at monthly meetings, plan fun events, and much more.
