A-State To Hold First Study Abroad Fair
JONESBORO – Arkansas State University will hold its first-ever Study Abroad Fair, Friday, Oct. 6, at Centennial Hall in the Carl R. Reng Student Union, 101 N. Caraway Road. The fair, presented by the Study Abroad Office, is from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
The Study Abroad Fair is an opportunity for students to learn about the diverse study abroad program options available to A-State students. There are opportunities to connect with faculty members directing faculty-led programs during summer 2018, get information about exchange programs, engage with approved external program providers and hear stories from students who have returned from studying abroad.
In addition, interested students can speak to an adviser to explore programs that meet academic and personal needs and discuss financial aid and scholarships that help fund the experience abroad. Representatives from the Career Services Center will be available to visit with students about career benefits of studying abroad.
Visitors are also eligible for door prizes and refreshments will be served.
Study abroad is an academic experience outside the U.S. in which participants interact with people of different cultures and join in programs that are not available at A-State. Most study abroad programs allow students to continue working on current degree programs while overseas.
Study abroad can last from a few weeks to an academic year and students work with academic and study abroad advisors to ensure credits transfer back to Arkansas State.
For more information about the fair, contact the Study Abroad Office administrative assistant Fallon Jenkins at fjenkins@AState.edu or call (870) 972-3734.
