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.
