The Global Ambassadors Program
About the Program
The Office of International Programs is sponsoring the Global Ambassadors Program (GAP) where domestic students are paired with international students to share cultural perspectives and ease international students’ transition into their lives here at Sam Houston State University. The Global Ambassadors Program will host several social events over the year to give students additional opportunities to interact and develop lasting friendships.
You can join at any time. Turn in the application ("Apply Here" button below) to Cassie Cure or Justin Ball (GAP advisors) in the Office of International Programs (Farrington 116)!
