Global Ambassador Mentees

What is a Global Ambassador 'Mentee'?

This program matches first-year and transfer international students with a student mentor to help them adjust to life at UC Davis. As a mentee, you can ask your mentor questions about student life at UC Davis and America, ask about resources and fun events (virtually for now and on campus when we reopen), 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.

Virtual events for fall 2020 are coming soon. Check back in here for more details. 

When everyone is back on campus, some of our social activities and events often include:

  • Group dinners in downtown Davis
  • Karaoke and game nights
  • Trip to the world's largest corn maze
  • Halloween party
  • Lunar New Year event
