Striving to passionately engage, unite, and connect our international students

The Navigator program represents a mixed group of both international and domestic students who act as student ambassadors and mentors for the international student body. They help the Office of International Affairs with international student orientation, cultural programs, conversation partners, and various events through the Fall and Spring semesters and answer questions new and returning international students have about campus events, resources, and services at UNA.

Friends of International Students (FIS) match international students with people in the Shoals who are interested in meeting them and helping them during their studies. If you are a UNA international student wanting to participate in this program, please contact Cala Flippo in the OIA office in Powers Hall.
