"Simple exchanges can break down walls between us, for when people come together and speak to one another and share a common experience, then their common humanity is revealed."
President Barack Obama
Are You Ready?
The idea of traveling and studying outside of the United States can sometimes seem overwhelming, but don't worry; the staff at international programs are here to help.
Every student who studies abroad will participate in a pre-departure orientation. These sessions are designed provide you with the information you need to have a great study abroad experience. We will give you information about logistics, cultural adjustment, safety, and what to expect at your host university.
The study abroad coordinator will schedule a session with you or your class (if you are going on a faculty-led trip). And, in the meantime, you can take a look at our Pre-Departure Handbook.
