United Warhawk Ambassadors

The United Warhawk Ambassadors (organized by the office of International Student Involvement and the ISA) provide an AUM friend to incoming international students during their first two months on campus. Most international students arrive a few days prior to classes beginning, and for many, this may be their first trip to the United States. Prior to arriving on campus, each student will be assigned an ambassador. Ambassadors are current AUM students that will help ease the transition by meeting students regularly to answer questions, introduce new students to services on campus and in the local community, as well as familiarizing them with the campus.
