Last week we published a post about the importance of studying abroad for business students. This week you have a chance to start looking seriously at various study abroad programs and how they could benefit you and your future. The CSU Study Abroad Fair is this Friday, September 7, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the Lory Student Center Main Ballrooms. Meet CSU faculty, advisors, CSU and affiliated program providers, and study abroad alumni to learn about study, intern, volunteer and work abroad programs! Also, look for study abroad representatives at the College of Business International Programs table!
There are other ways you can learn more about studying abroad and opportunities available to you. The Fall 2012 International Connections Brown Bag Lunch Series will highlight international travel. Themes will include what you can do abroad, how to prepare to travel, how to pay for your international experience, and wonderful stories of student travel experiences and how it has influenced their CSU experience. These events are free and open to the public. Bring a friend and your lunch to any or all of the following meetings:
- September 11, Lory Student Center, Room 203-205 12:15-1:00: Don’t believe the rumor: You CAN afford to travel abroad (Visa and MasterCard not required)
- September 18, Lory Student Center, Room 210 12:15-1:00: Culture: More than just the accents are different
- September 25, Lory Student Center, Room 203-205 12:15-1:00: What I wish I would have known: Student perspectives on international travel
Today, September 6, at 2:30 p.m., the CSU Office of International Programs Scholarships for Study Abroad will host a panel of professionals who have worked closely with scholarships to answer your questions about scholarships for study abroad. The panel will include CSU affiliates, CSU Student Financial Services employees, and successful student recipients. The panel discussion will take place in the Study Abroad Office at Laurel Hall on the Oval. Visit http://www.studyabroad.colostate.edu/ for more information.
