Connect with Current Global Ambassadors

OHIO’s Global Ambassador team is dedicated group of international undergraduate students who work closely with the International Admissions staff. Like you, they were once prospective international students who wanted to learn more about the place they would soon call home. Now, they’re here to assist other prospective and admitted undergraduate students with questions about studying in another country, student life at OHIO, and living in Athens.

The Global Ambassadors are eager to discuss life at OHIO and share their own unique experience of making OHIO their forever home! Contact any of the ambassadors by email, or request our help in being matched with an ambassador by emailing admissions@ohio.edu.
