Global Ambassador Mentees

What is a Global Ambassador 'Mentee'?

A 'mentee' is someone who receives mentorship. Our Global Ambassador Mentorship Program matches first-year and transfer international undergraduate students with a student mentor to help them adjust to life at UC Davis. As a mentee, you can ask your mentor about student life at UC Davis and the United States, as well as resources and fun events, and have someone you know before you arrive on campus. Our mentors are not just mentors, but also hope to create a friendship with you and make the most of your first year here at UC Davis. This is a great way to meet other students and make new friends! We will have fun social events throughout the year, so join us! Our events are open to ALL, so you can always bring a friend.
