Study Abroad Events
The Center for Global Education (CGE) offers many sessions and events to help our Butler University students find ways to study abroad, prepare to go abroad, learn from their past study abroad experiences, and to just stay connected with our office. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Study Abroad Advisor Caitlin Moore.

Marketing Your Study Abroad Experience

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.

Study Abroad Pre-Departure Orientation (PDO)
Saturday, November 6 | 10:00 AM- 12:00 PM | PB 204
Target Audience: Students committed to studying abroad for the Spring 2022 semester
Each semester, the CGE hosts a MANDATORY pre-departure orientation (PDO) for students studying abroad for the following semester or summer. The CGE typically provides coffee and great discussions 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.**
