Study Abroad Fair!

Study Abroad Fair!

Are you interested in spending a semester, J-term or summer abroad? Is there somewhere in the world that you’ve been interested in visiting, but haven’t been able to yet?

This Wednesday, February 1st, in the Damen MPR from 11am to 3pm, the Study Abroad Fair will be held. Whether you want to travel as far away as China, Japan, or New Zealand, or stay as close as Cuba, or even somewhere in Europe, there’s a study abroad option that’s bound to fit your needs and wants, satisfying classes from your major, minor, or core requirements all the while having the ability to soak up the culture that that place has to offer.

The Study Abroad Fair will feature alumni students from all the featured programs, whether they might be Loyola students, or alum from the colleges and universities that they’re representing, prepared to answer any questions you might have. Each booth will also contain information for when applications are due, and rough costs based off of previous years.

About one-third of Loyola’s undergraduate student body travel abroad every year, and from every testimony from my friends who have had the ability to so far have loved every moment of it. Going to places Rome, or rural France, or as far away as Thailand, they have all been able to create amazing memories that helped them experience other cultures besides our own, or ones that we might be accustomed to. Studying abroad allowed them to leave their comfort zone. Whether it was a language barrier, or foreign food, there was always some kind of adjustment that has helped them become more well-rounded individuals, being able to appreciate what they have, and what new experiences they’ll carry with them forever.

If you’re looking for more financial information, or are unsure about how your financial situation might apply, you’re always welcome to visit the Study Abroad Office in the Sullivan Center! Certain financial aid and loans can be applied, so there’s never a need to be discouraged if you’re seriously interested in a certain program.

Even if you’re interested in studying abroad much later in your college career, it never hurts to have an idea of the options that interest you! Click Here if you’re interested in seeing some photos of Loyola students studying abroad!
