The sky is the limit when considering a student’s options for studying abroad through SUNY Cortland’s international school partners.
Destinations including Belize, Costa Rica, France, Mexico, Spain and the United Kingdom will showcase their programs during a Study Abroad Fair between 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 15, in the Corey Union lobby.
With more than 800 options in the SUNY system, students will be able to study abroad in the winter, spring, summer or fall. Hugh Anderson, a study abroad advisor in the College’s International Programs Office, will be hosting the fair.
“There is a program for every field of study — some for the same cost as studying here at SUNY Cortland or even less,” Anderson said.
Representatives from SUNY Cortland’s faculty-led study abroad programs, students who have previously studied abroad, as well as international visitors on campus and other SUNY campus study abroad representatives, will be on hand to describe their life-changing experiences and give a taste of what awaits them as scholars in a different country.
At SUNY Cortland, study abroad participants may choose options that include attending a college or university, participating in an internship, student teaching, volunteering their talents, engaging in a faculty-led program or joining a short-term specialized program.
Information is not the only thing on the agenda for the Study Abroad Fair. Participants may enter a raffle for a chance to win a $500 travel award that can be used in the future towards any SUNY study abroad program.
Aside from the fair, “Study Abroad 101,” an information session on how to get started with the study abroad process, is offered throughout the semester. Individuals need to attend one session, which are all offered every Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. and Friday at 3 p.m. in Old Main Colloquium.
