Global Ambassadors Program
Meet the student coordinators for Macalester’s Global Ambassadors Program! This program makes it possible for current Macalester students to serve as resources for international students during the admissions process through your arrival to campus. These students can help you find your home at Macalester.

Floyd took a wide variety of classes at Mac before declaring his major in the second semester of his sophomore year. When he’s not studying, one of his favorite things to do in the city is to watch a Minnesota United game at the new soccer stadium.
