Interested in meeting new people, gaining global perspectives, learning another language, developing intercultural communication skills, building foundations for lasting friendships, and/or sharing your study abroad experiences?
If you have studied abroad, you know that living in another country for an extended period of time can be daunting. By making a connection with international students early on in their stay, you will make them feel welcome and help ease their transition into a new culture. And regardless of whether you have studied abroad or are planning to do so (even though we highly recommend it!), you will learn from each other as you develop intercultural skills that will help prepare you for living, studying, and working in the 21st century.
YOU! Any Longwood student may apply to be a Global Leader.
