The UI Office for Study Abroad will hold its annual study abroad fair Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2010, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the second floor of the University Capitol Centre, near the south end. All university students are invited to attend to learn about global education opportunities.
More than 70 diverse study abroad programs sponsored by the UI will be featured. Former study abroad students, along with peer advisers, program directors and financial aid advisers, will be available to answer questions and share their experiences. Students can also talk to program representatives from external institutions in Italy, Morocco and India, among other countries.
Fair attendees will have a chance to win door prizes including scholarships for study abroad and gift certificates to local travel agencies.
The fair is designed to connect students to international opportunities. The UI’s goal is for 30 percent of all undergraduates to have a study abroad experience. Last year, 19 percent of UI undergraduates participated in study abroad.
The Office for Study Abroad is part of UI’s International Programs. This event is free and open to the public.
