Marketing Your Study Abroad Experience

Returnees will be notified of this event.

Target Audience: Recent returnee study abroad students who have been abroad on a short-term program or for a semester or year.

Learn how to identify what you learned during your study abroad experience and then how to best articulate these experiences on a resume, in an interview, and in other professional settings. A portion of the workshop will include a panel of alumni and employers who will share what they look for in candidates and answer specific questions from attendees. FREE food will be provided.

Study Abroad Pre-Departure Orientation (PDO)

See the updated PDO date/time/location on our Study Abroad Pre-Departure webpage.

Target Audience: Students committed to studying abroad for a semester or on a Third Party Provider summer program.

Each semester, the CGE hosts a MANDATORY pre-departure orientation (PDO) for students studying abroad for the following semester or summer. The CGE provides information on how to stay safe abroad and prepare for one of the best semesters of your college career. PDO lasts for about 2 hours.

**There are NO makeup sessions and NO one-on-one appointments to go through PDO information.**
