International center hosts study abroad fair
Posted on January 18, 2012
Padnos International Center staff members held a Study Abroad Fair January 18 in the Henry Hall atrium, offering details on the different programs available to Grand Valley students.
The fair featured tables and information on more than 50 programs. Faculty-led sessions for the spring, summer, and fall semesters were highlighted.
“Fairs are a great outreach event for us to get out of the office and into students’ territory,” said Meaghann Myers-Smith, study abroad advisor. “We can interact with students who may never have considered studying abroad before.”
Myers-Smith explained that these events are valuable for those students learning about these programs for the first time.
“Our goal is making sure students have the least amount of barriers in front of them as possible,” she said. “We want them to know our programs are accessible and all-inclusive.”
Nearly 800 students participated in a study abroad program last year. For more information visit www.gvsu.edu/pic.
