Departmental Ambassadors

Departmental Ambassadors are current American or International graduate students who are knowledgeable about their respective departments.  They participate in this program as volunteers to help new international students with any questions they might have as they begin their program of study at NC State.  New students may contact Departmental Ambassadors with questions about courses, professors, the department, the campus, or life as a graduate student.  Your Departmental Ambassador is a valuable resource, but they are also a "friendly face" in your department.  They want to help you so do not hesitate to contact them!

NOTE: Current graduate students who are interested in being Departmental Ambassadors are encouraged to contact the OIS Programs Coordinator to have their name added to this site. Also, please email any changes in your contact information to the above email address.
