Global Ambassadors

UB Global Ambassadors are students who have studied abroad within the past year. These students have volunteered to spread the word about study abroad across campus as well as be a resource to prospective study abroad students here at UB!

My name is Paige Bulera, I am a Media Studies major and a senior at UB. I studied in Canterbury, England at the University of Kent. I chose to be a Global Ambassador to assist others in finding their home abroad. My semester abroad was a life changing and overall amazing, rewarding experience. I hope I can help others find that joy and passion too!

Tony Gullo

My name is Anthony Gullo, and I am a senior with a double major in Physics and Mathematical Physics. I studied abroad during the January winter term in Florence Italy, and while I was there I visited Rome and Venice. I wanted to be a global ambassador to try and convince people to venture out and study abroad. My goal is to convince people who were on the fence about going aborad that it is worth it.

Tyler Leote

University College Cork, Ireland (SUNY Cortland)

Hi! My name is Tyler Leote, and I am a first year pharmacy student in the UB School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences Doctor of Pharmacy program. It is my third year at UB, with my previous 2 years spent as an undergraduate at the university. I studied abroad in Fall 2022 through the SUNY Cortland program at University College Cork in Cork, Ireland. I chose to be a Global Ambassador to advocate for the benefits that study abroad can bring to the student experience, both academically and mentally! I hope that sharing my experience will encourage others to get out of their comfort zone and experience cultures and lifestyles different from their own, hopefully allowing them to make friends from throughout the world and gain a new level of confidence.
