Study Abroad Fair Set for Sept. 19

09/12/2017 

SUNY Cortland students have shown a growing interest in studying abroad in recent years, visiting countries such as Spain, Belize, Germany, Australia and Cuba.

The International Programs Office will hold its annual Study Abroad Fair on Tuesday, Sept. 19 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Corey Union Main Lobby. The fair is free and open to all students.

Students can expect to learn about the 800 different study abroad programs the College partners with around the globe. Advisors will discuss scholarship and funding opportunities.

“Students should travel abroad to have a much better and bigger understanding of world culture,” said Hugh Anderson, senior study abroad advisor. “Eighteen percent of SUNY Cortland students travel abroad and it is a part of the culture here at Cortland."

International Programs will raffle off a pair of $500 travel awards. Other raffles and games include prizes such as luggage scales and baggage straps.

Students who have previously studied abroad, as well as some of the College’s international students, will be present at the fair to answer questions. They will talk about their experiences and the joy of visiting or living in other countries.

Study abroad credits may be used toward major, minor or general education requirements. With a wide variety of destinations, students have many academic options. SUNY Cortland’s students who have studied abroad have participated in internships, student taught, volunteered and engaged in faculty-led programs.

For those who cannot attend the fair, International Programs will have tables in the Student Life Center after 2 p.m. on Sept. 19. International Programs offers “Study Abroad 101” twice a week throughout the semester, on Tuesdays from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. and Fridays from 3 to 4 p.m. in Old Main, Room 220.
