Global Ambassadors Student Program (GASP)
Founded in 2007, the Global Ambassadors Student Program (GASP) is an international speakers’ bureau through which Colorado State University international students and scholars share their culture, heritage, language, geography and history of their countries with local school classrooms and with other community groups. At the same time, the international students and scholars have the opportunity to learn more about American culture and to practice their English and presentation skills. The Global Ambassadors Student Program recently became a registered student organization(RSO) to increase awareness about the program to the CSU community.
