International Student and Scholar Affairs (ISSA), a part of Notre Dame International, is pleased to announce the 2014-2015 International Ambassador team. International Ambassadors (IAs) are a select group of University of Notre Dame students, both international and American, undergraduate and graduate, who serve as ISSA's student leadership team. IAs serve as peer mentors by assisting new international students with their academic, cultural and social adjustment to the United States and Notre Dame.  

As represent ISSA and Notre Dame International by assisting with International Student Orientation and international programming, hosting international visitors on campus and providing feedback and guidance on issues related to international students. This year's application process was one of the most competitive yet, with nearly 50 applications for 11 open positions.
