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.  Financial Aid Workshops are held Thursday afternoons immediately following the Info Sessions.  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.

Info Sessions for the 2018 faculty-led study abroad programs will be held at both the Southern & Dobson and Red Mountain campuses.
