The Clayton State University Office of International Programs will hold its Annual Study Abroad Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., on Tuesday, Oct. 11, on Main Street in the James M. Baker University.
All students who would like to learn more about the possibility of studying abroad are invited to attend. The representatives at the fair will include Clayton State faculty members who direct short-term study abroad programs worldwide and agents from independent study abroad organizations. All study abroad programs make it possible for students to earn Clayton State academic credit while participating in a program abroad.
The Study Abroad Fair is free and open to the public. For more information, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (678) 466-4092.
The fair is a chance for students to scope out all the many study abroad opportunities Clayton State has to offer in one great setting. All students attending will receive free goodies related to international studies, along with talking to faculty program directors and students who have studied abroad who will be eager to help students identify programs that best fit their majors or career interests.
There are currently dozens of options are available that allow students to find programs in their major areas of study, or they can explore options to earn credit toward Clayton State general elective requirements. Students have the option of a summer, semester or academic year program that offer a variety of courses, such as a program in London for the summer by the European Council, or a program in Hungary or France to study for a full-semester.
The fair will feature voting for the Study Abroad Photo Contest and Virtual Visits -- students can get a free photo of themselves “visiting” an international location, through the magic of green screen photograph.
Individuals who attend the fair will also learn about programs and financial aid and loan options that will allow study abroad trip to become a reality. Participants will also have a chance to sign-up for the follow-up session “Study Abroad 101: First Steps to Study Abroad,” scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 20, at 11:30 a.m., also on Main Street in the Baker Center.
Students who aren’t able to attend the fair can learn about the many options through the Office of International Programs website at http://adminservices.clayton.edu/oip/.
