The Texas A&M International University Student Ambassadors will host a barbecue for current A&M International students and new students for Fall 1998 who are interested in joining the student service organization.

A third event for A&M International students interested in joining the Student Ambassadors will be held on Thursday, April 30, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at the University in the Great Room of the Sue and Radcliffe Killam Library (room 319).
