ELA students are eligible for the Center for Global Education's signature Red Carpet Welcome service. ELA students will be met by a UW-Whitewater Global Ambassador at Chicago O'Hare International Airport when they arrive. They will be provided a welcome basket, including some snacks for hungry travelers! Global Ambassadors are responsible for bringing ELA students to campus, helping them move in to their residence halls, and taking them to shop for essentials.
