AS•U•GO Cultural Speakers Bureau

AS•U•GO provides opportunities for cross-cultural learning through interactive conversations between Appalachian State international student speakers and K-12 students and teachers in our regional public schools.

AS•U•GO Speakers are primarily Appalachian student volunteers (international, exchange, and education abroad returnees), and occasionally visiting scholars, faculty and community members with extensive international living, work, and/or study experiences.

International Outreach

International Outreach works to establish networks between campus and community constituencies to build sustainable educational resources and outreach programs focusing on internationalization and inclusive community building.

The AS-U-GO program connects ASU students, faculty and local community members with area schools for cultural presentations as a free public service.

Enology Services Laboratory

The Appalachian State University Enology Services Lab has served the North Carolina wine and grape industry since harvest of 2010 and provides analyses to assist harvest and wine production decisions including Brix, TA, pH, Nitrogen, Malic Acid, Glucose + Fructose, Volatile Acidity, Total and Free SO2, and Alcohol. In addition, we offer wine sensory evaluation to help identify specific sensory issues and provide feedback from our trained panel through blind tasting and standardized evaluations.

Hop, IBU, and in-depth (HPLC, GCMS) evaluation is also available.
