Indiana State University students are stepping out into the world–literally.
The university hosted its “Study Abroad Fair” today. The fair takes place every 2 years and it provides students with information on the different “study abroad” opportunities. Professors who lead the trips were there to talk to students about the courses.
Financial aid officials were also on hand to help students plan in that regard. The fair is a one-stop shop for ISU students interested in learning in another country.
“It costs a little bit of money so we want them to understand it’s not beyond their means. If they start thinking about it now, they can be prepared financially. they can plan it so they can be gone a whole semester and not put them outside the four year graduation time,” says Global Engagement Director Chris McGrew.
McGrew says studying abroad is so important because it makes students more attractive to employers and broadens their education.
