The NMSU International Student Ambassador Club gives NMSU students a chance to make friends from all over the world and gain global perspective without even leaving Las Cruces.  As an ambassador, you will be matched with an international exchange student studying abroad for a semester or a year at NMSU.  You will participate in fun club activities such as barbecues, hiking and day trips while showing them around Las Cruces and helping them adjust to life in America.  NMSU Ambassador Club is a rewarding way to get involved at NMSU, practice a second language, and make friends from all over the globe!

For more information please contact club president Sally Goenaga:
