Many students feel that they would like to continue sharing their international experiences when they return to the United States. Luckily, there are many ways to do this at CWRU.
1. Join an international organization on campus. CWRU has a very international campus, so it is fitting that we have plenty of recognized student organization with some international flair. Some examples are the International Club, the Asian American Alliance, EKTA Indian Dance, Engineers Without Borders, and the Global Medical Initiative.

2. Give back. The Center for Civic Engagement and Learning can connect you to community organizations that work with immigrants and refugees, two of which are Esperanza Inc. and Catholic Charities. You might also consider participating in an international alternative break.
3. Consider working in the Office of Education Abroad. If you are interested in employment in our office, email Lisa Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request an application.
4. Serve as an international student ambassador. Ambassadors help meet the needs of first-year international students before their programs start. They work with international students in small groups and guide them through their transition at CWRU.
