 “This is my first year as an Intercultural Aide and it has been the most worthwhile experience of my college career. I’ve learned so much about myself in such a short amount of time. It’s only November, and I can already see how much I’ve grown. As an Aide, you will be face with challenges that will further enhance your skills – time management, leadership, interpersonal communication, and listening skills. You have to be comfortable with being uncomfortable when you’re meeting new people and serving as a resource to the residents. You’ll meet a lot of great people and the Aide family mentality is wonderful! I love what I do!”

“So far as an Aide I have come to find out a lot about myself. I have grown mentally from the experiences I’ve had with the amazing people I’ve met thus far. As a leader in my community, I have gained a greater sense of the world and a need to give back. I am proud to say I am gaining the opportunity of a lifetime, to see multiple perspectives on life and embark knowledge on others. I have learned how to think more concisely. With all of the activism on campus, I definitely feel more comfortable in my own skin. I am becoming my own person and taking a stand on my beliefs. I cant express the enjoyment I have when Im around my Aide family, and trust me, this is a full functioning family!! If you want to grow as a student, experience new things, meet wonderful people, and be actively involved on campus BECOME AN INTERCULTURAL AIDE!!!!.”
