International Study Abroad Expo
The Grove College of Business hosted the second annual
International Study Abroad Expo on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 in the GRH
Forum. The event featured eight
different countries that were hosted by Ship students who had studied abroad in
those countries and/or by international students who are currently studying at
Dr. Anthony Winter, associate dean in the Grove CoB,
welcomed everyone and introduced Ms. Mary Burnett, director of International
Studies, and students Dustin Lowry and Nancy Carr and each of them shared their
perspectives on the importance of studying abroad. A high intensity and spirited video on
Poland, presented by Polish students Daniel Machlanski and Kris Goldy, was
shown to get students geared-up for the Expo.
Over 50 students in attendance enjoyed learning about the
different countries and eating the variety of delicious international food that
was served throughout the event.
Hopefully the event was successful in educating our students about
different cultures and in planting some seeds of interest in our students to
further explore study abroad opportunities in the future.
