In an effort to make the process of choosing and applying for a study abroad program even easier, the Center for International Education offers students a number of fairs, information sessions and opportunities each semester to meet other students with abroad experience.
Students seeking a study, internship or volunteer experience abroad are encouraged to attend the Center for International Education’s Study Abroad Fair on Tuesday, February 1. The fair will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Princeton Room in Daly Dining Hall. Those who attend the fair will have the opportunity to meet with Rider’s study abroad providers, including AHA International; API; IFSA-Butler; ISA; GlobaLinks; AIFS; Alliance; CAPA; and CFAM.
“All students who are interested in educational opportunities abroad are encouraged to attend. They can get detailed information about Rider’s study abroad programs by meeting with providers one to one,” explained Sara Young-Singh, acting director of the Center for International Education.
Study Abroad Ambassadors, who are Rider students who have recently returned from studying abroad, will also be available at the fair to share their experiences with interested students.
Stephanie Gomez, a junior International Business and Marketing dual major, researched online, attended Study Abroad fairs and spoke with the staff at the Center for International Education before deciding to study abroad in Florence, Italy, through the CAPA program in the fall of 2009.
“The Center helps students to try to look into a program that is fit for their major and the country they would like to go to,” explained Gomez, a Study Abroad Ambassador.
The Center for International Education is located in the Bart Luedeke Center, Suite 124. For more information about the Center, please call 609-896-7717.
