Welcome Ambassadors

The Welcome Ambassadors International ( WAI) are a group of student volunteers who have been recruited and trained to help new international students acclimate to campus.

Many of the WAIs are international students themselves and have a firsthand perspective of what new students need and how to assist them.  Some of the domestic WAIs know the local culture and campus well and are eager to help students from other cultures to adjust to Syracuse University.

The WAIs will assist the Center for International Services with some of the things international students need when they arrive in Syracuse, ranging from airport pickup, resident hall check-in, campus tours, and small group discussions.

Interested students in becoming WAI for the Spring 2021 semester may apply now via the Syracuse University Handshake Portal.  You will need to login with your MySlice netid and passord. 

The WAI candidates must be cleared to be on campus and start training by Friday, January 15, 2021.  

Apply today!  We are accepting applications on a rolling basis.
