The International Studies Office would like to extend an invitation to all members of UVa's international community to participate in World Wide Wahoos, our new global outreach program. Students, faculty, and staff from more than 120 countries provide global perspectives that enrich the life of our university. World Wide Wahoos will be dedicated to sharing this wealth of international experience with current and prospective students, and with the wider Charlottesville community. World Wide Wahoos will serve as a portal to the International Student Ambassadors, the International Speakers Bureau, the Global Student Council's international high school visitors program, the Education Abroad office's outreach initiatives, and the MiX mentoring program.
