What’s New at the Study Abroad Office?

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to give you an update on what’s been happening in the Office since the last post.

  • We had the Outbound Orientation for Fall 2011 and Academic Year 2011-2012 participants earlier this month. The outgoing students received all of the information they will need to get ready to go to their respective universities/programs – starting at 9am on a Saturday. Dedication at its best!
  • We are nearing the end of the semester, which means that if you want to go on a Reciprocal Exchange program Spring 2012, you need to turn in those applications really soon.
  • We are currently in the hiring process for a new Peer Advisor. We will miss you, Mindy!
  • There are a couple of new programs with which study abroad students can get involved. I’m excited to tell you more about the International Ambassadors and the Study Abroad Correspondents programs, but that will be for another post.
  • Look out for some upcoming posts with useful websites and tips.

Check out this beautiful photo – it was one of our entries in the 2010 Study Abroad Fair Photo Contest.

Until next time!
