2013/2014 International Ambassadors

WIU Ambassadors are current WIU international students who are willing to answer any questions you may have about living in Macomb.  Feel free to ask our Ambassadors questions about housing, food, shopping, cell phones, etc.  The Ambassadors are listed by country, major, and gender, but feel free to ask any of the Ambassadors any of your questions. Please note: these are student volunteers; they are not official university representatives. 

Specific questions regarding admissions, registration, and coursework should be addressed to either the Center for International Studies staff or your academic advisor once you are on campus. For general questions or concerns, contact an official university representative.
