Office of International Education to Host Study Abroad Showcase

Study AbroadOne way to learn more about Ferris State University’s study abroad opportunities is by attending its Study Abroad Showcase on Tuesday, Jan. 24 and Wednesday, Jan. 25 in IRC 134 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. both days.

The Office of International Education is encouraging students who are interested in study abroad programs to become education about the courses that are available overseas or through the National Student Exchange.

“Studying abroad gives students opportunities to enhance their view of the world and its many cultures through firsthand experiences rather than just through a textbook,” said Tara Braun, Study Abroad and National Student Exchange manager.

Students who choose to study abroad can blend firsthand experience with the knowledge that they have gained through traditional classroom education.

“Study abroad sets you apart from the traditional college student, which makes you unique and helps you to stand out among your graduating class. It shows that you adapt to changes, welcome new challenges and broaden your opportunities in life,” said student Carlvin Dorvilier, who participated in the Study Abroad Summer 2011 at Dankook University in South Korea.

The Study Abroad Showcase gives students opportunities to engage faculty members who host the programs and peers who have participated in pervious study abroad trips.
