College Launching Tri-Weekly Study Abroad Sessions


The James M. Clark Center for International Education at SUNY Cortland will begin offering “Study Abroad 101,” an hour-long informational session, three times each week. The sessions began on Tuesday, Feb. 1.

Designed for students interested in visiting another country for the purpose of study either for a semester, year, summer or winter intersession, the programs are free and open to students, faculty, staff and the public.

All sessions are held in Brockway Hall, Room 203, located on the main floor to the right of the main entrance. Except as noted, the seminars are scheduled to take place all spring semester from noon-1 p.m. on Tuesdays; from 5-6 p.m. on Thursdays; and from 3-4 p.m. on Fridays. No sessions will take place on Friday, Feb. 11; Friday, April 15; and during the week of March 14-18, which is Spring Break.

Different speakers — including Cortland students who have studied abroad and wish to share their experiences — will present information on the more than 500 study abroad program options available through the College, as well as the application process and scholarship opportunities.

“Perhaps you might be interested in a semester in London, an internship in Belize, or a three-week history and art study tour in China,” said Gonda Gebhardt, senior study abroad advisor for the Clark Center. “Or maybe you would like to improve your Spanish during the summer in Costa Rica or winter intersession in Mexico or do your student teaching in Australia. The world is yours to explore.”
