Learn your study abroad options

A Study Abroad Coffee Chat will be held by the International Programs Office at NMU for students to get an introduction to the process of selecting a study abroad program.

The chat, from 3 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26 in 142 Whitman Hall, will give students considering an international experience to a degree the opportunity to answer questions in an informal drop-by session about the study abroad program.

“We ask students to attend one of these coffee chats prior to scheduling a one-to-one advising session with our office,” said Susan Morgan, Coordinator of Education Abroad and Exchange Programs. “They come better prepared to talk about specific academic and personal goals for their abroad experience,”

Some options for students to choose between are a full academic year or semester abroad, an internship or a volunteer service program.

“We suggest students allow a full two semesters of planning for a study abroad experience,” Morgan said. That means, students who’d like to study abroad next summer or fall should be starting to do their research now, and the coffee chats are a great way to get started.”
