A cultured affair at the Nott

(Concordiensis | Sarah Chang)

Above, students gather around tables at the Study Abroad Fair in Nott Memorial to see what the International Programs Office has to offer.

Bottom left, hors d’oeuvres line a table while balloons with maps of the world on them bob above students milling around at the Study Aborad Fair, which took place last Thursday, Oct. 22, from 12:30 to 2 p.m.

The purpose of the fair was to show students the study abroad opportunities Union has to offer and to give information on international study programs. Professors who have led study abroad groups in the past were available for questions at tables labeled with their programs.

Attendees of the fair could enter a raffle for a $200 Amazon gift card and, as advertised on the event flyer, “Sample a variety of international foods!”

Union’s website states that more than 60 percent of Union students study abroad at some point during their undergraduate careers. This includes students who participate in full terms abroad, mini-terms abroad and non-Union or independent study abroad programs. Union offers about 44 study abroad programs, though not every program is offered on an annual basis.

In 2016, Union ranked No. 12 on the Princeton Review’s list of Most Popular Study Abroad Programs.
