Welcome to the Macalester College Global Ambassadors Program. We are Erin Isomura and Floyd Krom, both part of the class of 2021. This spring we will be serving as the student coordinators of the Global Ambassadors Program. This program was created to enable current Macalester students to serve as resources for prospective international students who are trying to decide if Mac is a good academic and personal fit for them.
I’m Floyd, originally born in the Netherlands and spent the last two years of high school at UWC Costa Rica. My intended majors are Economics and Anthropology. Outside of class, I am part of the Macalester Men’s Soccer team 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 currently undecided in my major, but am intending a music minor. I am a part of the Concert Choir 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 semester 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 are available to 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
