During the fall of 1996, fifty international students at the University of Charleston organized a Global Student Organization (GSO). The purpose and goal of the student-led organization is to promote cultural awareness on campus and throughout the local community.
Members of GSO meet regularly to plan community service events, develop fund-raising strategies, and create activities to engage local and international students in cultural exchanges. The members of the group also serve as a support for one another through the process of transitioning to university life in America.
For more information on how to become part of the Global Student Organization, email the Director of International Programs.
