Bringing the World to You
Students, faculty and staff from more than 120 countries provide global perspectives that enrich the life of our university. World Wide Wahoos are volunteers who are committed to sharing their wealth of international experience through their outreach to current and prospective students and to the wider Charlottesville community.
Welcome to World Wide Ambassadors. Would
you like to connect with someone from your
home country? Would you like to ask questions
you might have about life in Charlottesville or
about studying at UVA? World Wide
Ambassadors are here to answer your questions.
Would you like to be matched up with a mentor
who is trained to provide friendly assistance and
guidance to international students as they adjust
to their new life at UVa? Your mentor will contact
you over the summer and will meet you at the
August orientation for international students.
The Global Student Council promotes U.Va. in
high schools all over the world. Find speakers
who can give presentations about UVa to
prospective applicants in their home country.
Once you are attending UVA, would you like to
meet once a week with a native English speaking
student for relaxed English conversation practice
and cultural exchange? To register for this free
program, visit the CAELC website (Center for
American English Language and Culture).
World Wide Speakers are volunteers who are
eager to share their global perspectives with local
schools and community groups. Request a
special topic or let us work with you to find the
best speaker for your needs. The possibilities are
as diverse as our speakers.
