Students looking to expand their horizons while continuing their classwork should mark their calendars.
The Study Abroad office at Augusta University is hosting the annual Study Abroad Day event from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28 in the first-floor lobby of Allgood Hall on the Summerville Campus.
This is an opportunity for students to find more information about the programs, which include not only international travel opportunities, but domestic ones, as well.
Summer 2023 program locations this year include the United Kingdom, Ecuador, Spain and New York City.
Annually, about 250 students take advantage of the program to continue their studies elsewhere. Most programs usually last a few weeks but full-semester or year-long trips are also possible.
“The goal of the event is to bring awareness to Study Abroad and its lasting impacts to campus and the global community. Study Abroad Day is perfect for students to explore our programs. It’s also a day to have student alumni who joined past programs come back to celebrate their experiences,” said Katherine Grego, director of Study Abroad.
Students interested in the study abroad or study away programs can learn about what’s being offered, as well as scholarships and financial aid that may be available. Faculty members are encouraged to stop by if they are considering creating a new program for their course as well.
During Study Abroad Day, coffee will be supplied by Buona Caffe and various teas from around the world and sweet treats will be available.
