Education Abroad Virtual and In-Person Events
The Education Abroad office prides itself in providing information sessions both big and small for students. Spring 2021 may look a little different for us all, but we are determined to still bring students the most up to date study abroad information via our events whether they are in-person or via Zoom! Below are the descriptions of different events that our office offers. We will be updating this page to include not only our standard weekly events, but also our one time and large events like the Study Abroad Fair.
