Studying Abroad

     Today in Alliot, there was a study abroad fair.  This is when a whole bunch of representatives from different study abroad programs set up tables and tell you about what they offer.  It is an excellent place to get started if you have no idea where you would like to study abroad.  Generally, if you go up to a table you can get brochures and information about the programs offered.  I already have an idea of the programs I want to do, so I knew straight away where to go. 
     Here is an image of what the fair looked like-

     Once you have an idea of where you would like to go, or even what program you are interested in, it would be a good idea to book an appointment with Peggy Imai.  She is the Study Abroad coordinator for all students and it is very simple to make an appointment.  You can go here and then see what fits your schedule.  It is never too early to start researching your options for studying abroad.  The study abroad office is located in Klein-

     Well, I hope this has inspired you to go abroad and get an even greater chance of increasing your educational opportunities.  Tweet me, contact me, or formspring me with any questions you may have.



  1. It will inspire those students who are planning in studying abroad and most likely to those students who are not familiar with the study abroad programs this will open opportunities to them. Great Job!

  2. When someone decides where to have her international study abroad programs, it is the start of deciding for herself.
