There was a lot of love for the study abroad program in the Walker College of Business on February 14. Through a joint program between International Programs and the International Business Student Association (IBSA), the LOVE International event provided students the opportunity to learn more about both the upcoming faculty-led programs as well as individual study abroad and internship abroad opportunities. A panel of faculty and previous study/internship abroad participants provided a packed room with information about the application process, what students can expect from being abroad, and what opportunities having such an experience can open up in the future.
LOVE International was created to let everyone know that now is the perfect time to start thinking about studying/interning abroad. With so many different locations open for students to travel to, anyone has the opportunity to go somewhere that will not only provide new experiences but also lead to valuable connections and knowledge about different parts of the world.
If you missed this event but are interested in traveling abroad to study or intern, contact Meredith Church Pipes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
