The Global Titans Ambassador Program is a voluntary program that provides study abroad alumni the opportunity to share their enthusiasm and passion for study abroad and global engagement with the CSUF community while engaging in activities that help foster professional development.

The Global Titans Buddy Program is a group of volunteers from CSUF who help visiting international students adapt to campus life and American culture. International students will be paired with a buddy who can answer basic questions about studying, socializing, and living in Fullerton.  Domestic students are often former study abroad/away participants and have been on campus for at least one full semester. This program was developed to help incoming international students meet American students and other international students quickly. CSUF students get to have an international experience, have cultural exchange, sometimes language exchange, and make an international friend.
