We are Erin Isomura and Floyd Krom, student coordinators of the Global Ambassadors Program and class of 2021. The Global Ambassadors Program was created to enable current Macalester students to serve as resources for prospective international students during the admissions process.
I’m Floyd, originally from the Netherlands, I spent the last two years of high school at UWC Costa Rica. I recently declared my Economics major and intend to minor in Spanish. Outside of class, I am part of the Macalester Men’s Soccer team, a representative on the Student Athlete Advisory Committee, and a volunteer for the Special Olympics Youth Athletes Program at Macalester. Without a doubt, you can wake me up for stroopwafels or Dutch apple pie at any time during the night!
I’m Erin, I’m Japanese and American, and grew up for the most part in Tokyo, Japan. I attended the American School in Japan for high school. I’m a Media and Cultural Studies major and a music minor. I am a part of the Concert Choir and an acapella group outside of classes. I also love a good cup of coffee, especially from Dunn Brothers in the morning.
We have both really enjoyed our first two years at Macalester as international students. Therefore, we both decided to become the student coordinators of the Global Ambassadors Program as we are determined to help prospective international students find their home at Macalester.
Prospective students, we encourage you to take a moment to fill out a short inquiry form so that we can serve you better. If you specify that you would like to get in contact with a current international student, we will help answer your questions and to provide you with the students’ perspective of Macalester. If you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Erin and Floyd
