Study Abroad Pre-Departure Orientation (PDO)

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.
