 Study Abroad Fair Set for Oct. 1 in Corey Union

08/19/2014 

SUNY Cortland’s international school partners from Belize, Costa Rica, France, Mexico, Spain and the United Kingdom will showcase their programs during a Study Abroad Fair on Wednesday, Oct. 1.

The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Corey Union lobby. The fair is free and open to the campus community. Information on funding and scholarships will be available.

“Traveling to another country allows students to explore the world for a summer, winter session, semester, or a year while earning college credit,” said Hugh Anderson, a study abroad advisor in the College’s International Programs Office, which is hosting the fair. 

At the fair, students who already have studied abroad as well as international visitors on campus and representatives from other SUNY campuses will be on hand to describe their life-changing experiences and give their classmates a taste of what awaits them as scholars in a different land.

Participants may enter in a raffle at a chance to win one of two $500 travel awards that can be used in the future towards any SUNY study abroad program.

At SUNY Cortland, students may choose from more than 600 SUNY-sponsored destinations, virtually anywhere in the world, in a range of disciplines. Study abroad participants have a range of options: to attend a college or university, participate in an internship, student teach, volunteer their talents, engage in a faculty-led program or join a short-term specialized program.

Surveys exploring the long-term impact on a student’s personal, professional and academic life show that the experience of immersing one’s self in another culture positively influences the individual’s career paths, world-view and self-confidence.

For more information on the fair, contact studyabroad@cortland.edu or 607-753-2209 or visit the International Programs Office in Old Main, Room 219 or online at cortland.edu/studyabroad.
