PackAbroad Ambassadors

PackAbroad Ambassadors is a student group for study abroad returnees. This is a great opportunity to meet other students who have studied abroad while encouraging even more students to study abroad too!

What They Do:

PackAbroad Ambassadors is primarily a student outreach organization. Ambassadors reach out to fellow students through tabling, orientations, classroom presentations, meet and greets, the study abroad fair, departure conferences, zoom, and so much more. PAA provides the opportunity for NC State students to hear about study abroad programs from fellow students who have experienced them. Enthusiastic and passionate Ambassadors typically give a 10-20 minute presentation about the variety of NC State’s study abroad programs with special emphasis on personal experiences and stories. This is a valuable opportunity for students to hear a peer’s perspectives and ask questions.

PackAbroad Ambassadors meet monthly to share fun stories, get to know one another, and have guest speakers bring attention to further possibilities of global engagement!
