The Education Abroad Fair is just around the corner! Here are five tips on how to get the most out of the fair:
1. Be Open Minded
Whether you’re not sure if you want to study abroad in Greece or Japan, or what courses you want to take, being open-minded is key. The opportunities at the fair may surprise you. Having a goal in the back of your mind while you’re there may help you to navigate from table to table.
2. Take Your Time
Indulge in all the fair has to offer. Talk to USF World Program Managers as they know everything there is to know about a USF faculty-led program. Also talk to representatives from providers such as ISA, CIEE and several more. There is a ton of information to take in, so it is best not to rush.
3. Ask Questions
There is no such thing as bad questions. Maybe you’re concerned about traveling abroad for the first time or just want to know more about the culture in a country of interest. Ask what the benefits are of the program and how long the program is. Don’t be afraid to put the faculty on the spot. Ask them why you should go on their program specifically. This is the best way to gather as much information as possible. So…ASK AWAY!
4. Free Stuff
Who doesn’t like free stuff? From pens and post-it notes to squishy balls and everything in between. The best way to remember your favorite booth is from the free stuff!
5. Have Fun
This is the time to think about what adventure is around the corner. The Education Abroad Fair can open your eyes to what the world has to offer as well as what you have to offer the world. Where every your program takes you, we can assure that you will have a great time with memories that will follow you for a lifetime.
The Education Abroad Fair will be held on September 20, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the MSC Ballroom. Visit educationabroad.global.usf.edu for more information.
