Going Global Logo

Going Global will be a radio segment on Other Side Drive that will be about opening people's minds to becoming more in touch with international affairs and encouraging listeners to becoming more comfortable with different cultures other than their own. The segment will strive to help Texas State students do what they can to become more educated on what living in different countries is like and how to be more welcoming to foreign exchange and transfer students that come to our campus. The show will feature various interviews with study abroad students, foreign students and professors with international experience. The segment will discuss ways that students can expose themselves to different cultures on a local level, such as trying different foods, listening to different music and making new friends.
