Last weekend, the Embassy of Australia in Washington DC welcomed the 2011-12 student ambassadors for an orientation program. We were so excited to meet our new student ambassadors and are thrilled to be working with such enthusiastic students!
This year’s student ambassadors hail from near (the DC suburbs) and far (Australia!) and study at universities spread throughout the United States and Canada. And what a good looking bunch, dontcha think?
During the orientation, students learned about their roles as student ambassadors, how to plan an event, and how to best help other students who want to study abroad in Australia. They also had some time to think about how studying in Australia has impacted their futures. One of the students, Nicole, blogged all about the weekend — click here to have a look.
