There is a Study Abroad Fair tomorrow (Tuesday 1/29) from 11 am-4 pm in Benson University Center Room 401.
I can say this from personal experience – and it has been echoed in the stories of legions of students I have met during my time as an administrator – the semester (or summer) you spend abroad is transformational. It is unbelievable how much it expands a student’s worldview, sense of history, understanding of other cultures, and self-reliance.
So parents of first years, sophomores, and even juniors – if you have not had the discussion about an abroad experience, please talk to your student about it. There are some stipends and scholarships available to assist students with financial need.
