Global Education Events and Opportunities
Each semester we schedule a few events specifically targeted to our returning students. Near the end of your study abroad semester or during the summer for spring study abroad students, you will receive more information from our office about upcoming events.
In addition to the paid internships listed above, we also have a few unpaid opportunities here in the office. These are great positions for students who want to share their experiences with other students and learn more about the field of Study Abroad at the same time.
Global Ambassador Program - Global Ambassadors are returned students who wish to share their experiences with potential study abroad students, to further promote study abroad programs on their campus, and to enhance the quality of information provided at the Center for Global Education to further advance the success of the programs. Global Ambassadors give a unique perspective to the potential study abroad student, providing information that cannot simply be obtained from brochures and websites. To learn more, please email outreach and marketing coordinator, Christina LoBrutto.
International Student Buddy Program - This program is designed to help our incoming International Students transition to life in the US and at Rutgers, which as returned study abroad students, you know can be a bit of challenge for new students. International Student Buddies answer questions about life in New Brunswick, cost of living, what to pack, etc before international students arrive. For many of the buddies, the relationship continues once the incoming students reach campus. Rutgers students usually help their buddy get acquainted to campus, clue them in and where to buy things, and help them navigate the Rutgers system.
Applications for these positions will be sent to returning students near the end of their program or during the summer for spring participants.
