Western Global Ambassadors

What is it like to be student at Western? Where do our students have their classes? How is life outside of the classroom? Where do they grab a cup of coffee in the morning?

The International and Exchange Student Centre is always looking for new ways to connect new international students with our current students to improve your Western experience.

Our Western Global Ambassadors are current upper-year students that come from different countries, speak a variety of languages, and pursue various majors and interests on campus. They are excited to talk to you, answer your questions and share with you a personal and informative connection to Western University. Chat with them online to know more about their first-hand experiences at Western!
