Join the Study Abroad Office in celebrating International Education Week.

Augusta University’s Study Abroad Office is hosting International Education Week from Nov. 4-7.

“This week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide,” said Maria Darley, director of Study Abroad.

International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences in the United States.

Students who stop by the Study Abroad Office in Allgood Hall on Monday, Nov. 4, or Tuesday, Nov. 5, with their past or current study abroad T-shirt will receive a small gift. If students bring a friend with them, they can receive something as well.
