WHAT are the Information Sessions?

The optional Information Sessions are designed to give you a general overview about each study abroad adventure. They are open to all and attendance is not mandatory to participate in a program. You will have a chance to meet fellow travelers and possibly find a buddy to travel or room with!

For program specific information, please feel free to contact the individual faculty Program Director. Look on each program to find that information.

Info Sessions for the 2020 faculty-led study abroad programs will be held at both the Southern & Dobson and Red Mountain campuses.

Why Do I Have to Attend?
