Ask Us Anything: Study Abroad Panel Discussions

Gen Riley with Host Fmaily

Beginning this week, the Office of Study Abroad will be hosting four student panels to help prepare you for your study abroad program. Food will be provided.

The panels feature returned study abroad students. These sessions will cover specific topics, and all attendees are encouraged to ask questions. The returned students will discuss their experiences abroad and can give you advice about your study abroad program. This is a great opportunity to talk to students who have been abroad! These panels are co-sponsored by the Study Abroad Ambassadors, API Study Abroad, CAPA, EUSA, and ISA. Dates and topics listed below.
