Acadia Ambassadors

The Acadia Ambassadors Program is a volunteer peer-mentor program to support first-year international students at Acadia. Each first year international student is assigned to a group with other new international students from a similar field of study. Students in each group are mentored by upper-year international and Canadian students who provide ongoing advice and information about life at Acadia and in Wolfville, easing the transition to university in Canada for new international students.

The role of the Ambassadors is to provide ongoing support throughout the new international student's first year at Acadia, including during orientation and at least two social events each semester.

Program goals:

  • Welcome new international students to the Acadia University Community
  • Provide peer advice about adapting to Wolfville and Acadia University life
  • Build connections among newly-arrived students and current Acadia students
  • Promote cross-cultural communication and learning
