International Education Center presents two study-abroad events this week

Is study abroad in your future? The first step to making it so is to visit the Study Abroad Fair tomorrow hosted by the International Education Center. For students who already have journeyed abroad, they are invited to attend a new informational series for study abroad returnees, which begins this afternoon.

Study Abroad Returnee Series

Semester study-abroad returnees are invited to attend this new informational series. The first session will be held from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. today, Wednesday, Feb. 10, in the Fireside Room, Murray-Herrick Campus Center.

The four-part series will focus on different aspects of the returnee experience. Students who attend three of the four sessions will be eligible to win a prize.
