Study Abroad Fair planned for Feb. 12

Students are invited to learn about the more than 1,000 study abroad destinations available through SUNY at SUNY Cortland’s Study Abroad Fair on Wednesday, Feb. 12.

The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Corey Union Exhibition Lounge. The fair is free and open to the campus community. Information on internships, service-learning, faculty-led programs, traditional study abroad programs, funding and scholarships will be available.

“Returned study abroad students, international students studying at SUNY Cortland, and representatives from other SUNY study abroad programs 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,” said Hugh Anderson, senior study abroad advisor in SUNY Cortland’s International Programs Office, which is 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,” he said.

Participants may enter a raffle for 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 a wide array of SUNY-sponsored destinations, virtually anywhere in the world, in a range of disciplines. 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.

“Study Abroad 101,” an information session on how to get started with the study abroad process, will be offered throughout the semester. Individuals only need to attend one session. These will be offered every Friday at 3 p.m. in Old Main Colloquium.
