A group of business-minded graduate students from Colombia visited St. Cloud through a joint effort between St. Cloud State University and the Universidad Externado de Colombia. GSDC president Patti Gartland was among the presenters in a weeklong series of keynote speakers, tours, and other special events. The students praised American culture for encouraging its citizens to create opportunity, take action, and overcome obstacles. The students journeyed back to Colombia with a newfound wealth of knowledge and memories.
