International Ambassadors serve an integral role at the ISSO’s New International Student Orientation Program.  As student leaders, they welcome new international students and serve as student mentors, helping them to feel comfortable while adjusting to life at Towson University.  The position involves leadership skills, such as organization, public speaking, and the ability to communicate effectively with students from around the world.  Duties include welcoming new students and conducting information sessions, answering general questions, and planning and participating in events and orientation activities on and off campus.  (Note: events will be scheduled throughout the day, but some will occur during evening hours.)  International Ambassadors must be available ten days prior to the start of the fall semester (August 12 through 22).  Please note that this is a paid position; on average, International Ambassadors work approximately 25-30 hours during this time, including two mandatory training sessions.

Interviews are required as part of the selection process and will be scheduled from April 25 through 30, 2014..
All ambassadors selected for spring 2014 are required to attend a mandatory meeting on during the week of May 5.. Failure to attend will result in you being excluded from the ambassador program.
