International Student Ambassadors

WIU International Student Ambassadors are current WIU 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.  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 School of Global Education and Outreach or your academic advisor once you are on campus. For general questions or concerns, contact an official university representative.
