As an international student, you can play a vital role in helping to promote international awareness by interacting with your American counterparts and sharing your experience, culture, language, and point of view – and they can share their experiences with you!
The Intercultural Club is a student group committed to promoting intercultural understanding at Endicott. As a club, we plan and participate in numerous cultural activities each year, both on and off campus. Activities include international dinners and film nights, charity events for international causes, and sponsorship of international and cultural performances and programs on campus. The Intercultural Club, which is open to all students on campus, is also proud to sponsor Endicott's Global Village each semester.
International Education Week
Endicott takes part in the United States Department of State's International Education Week every November. Check the events calendar for ways to get involved.
Global Ambassador Program
Who better than a current Gull to welcome the new Gulls? The Global Ambassador program at Endicott is very helpful to newly arrived international students. Upon arrival, each new student is assigned a Global Ambassador (GA). GAs are typically upperclassmen who are also international students or domestic students who have returned from a study abroad experience. They help new international students in their adjustment to the campus and to the United States. Your GA will take you to shop for any necessities, have dinner with you periodically, and check in during the semester to see how you're doing. They also plan outings to help you get to know the area, and of course, they are always available for your questions and concerns. Each April, students may apply to become Global Ambassadors for the following academic year.
Global UGRAD Exchange Programs
Endicott is proud to welcome an elite group of students through the United States Department of State’s Global Undergraduate Exchange Program. Students selected for the Global UGRAD program have gone through a rigorous selection process and represent the best of their home countries. While coming to the United States to learn more about American culture, these students also bring their unique cultures to Beverly to share with the entire Endicott community!
Through the World Learning organization, Endicott welcomes Global UGRAD students from Asia and Latin America. And, through the IREX program Endicott welcomes Global UGRAD students from Eurasia, Central Asia, and Pakistan.
