On Columbus Day, the Office of Education Abroad is celebrating the exploration of traveling abroad with its annual Study Abroad Fair on Monday, Oct. 10, 2011 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Baker Center Ballroom.
The event is free and open to the public and provides attendees ready access to representatives from Ohio University study abroad programs, OHIO affiliates and other providers all in the same room. In celebration of the event, ten T-shirts will be given away to attendees every hour.
The Study Abroad Fair gives students a chance to speak with program directors and past participants as well as take advantage of on-the-spot advising with trained study abroad advisers. Information about financial aid, scholarships and passports will also be available.
With hundreds of programs in more than 40 countries, attendees are exposed to the endless possibilities to study, teach, work, volunteer and intern abroad. The majority of Ohio University’s 60+ programs will be represented at the fair, as well as programs offered by OHIO affiliates and third-party providers.
“The study abroad fair is the perfect opportunity for students to explore their options, speak face-to-face with program representatives and begin planning their journey abroad,” said Catherine Marshall, Director of the Office of Education Abroad.
The Study Abroad Fair gives attendees the opportunity to explore all of the opportunities through Office of Education Abroad, allowing participants to discover their dream destinations and opportunities. Last year, more than 700 students traveled abroad through Ohio University, many of whom began their journey at the Study Abroad Fair.
