Discover International Options
At Annual Study Abroad Fair

If you’re a San Diego State student who has never considered the possibility of participating in a study abroad program, a stroll down Centennial Walkway could soon change your mind. The bi-annual Study Abroad Fair returns to campus on February 2, providing interested travelers and passers-by all the information they need to get started on an unforgettable international experience.

“The Study Abroad Fair is aimed at providing information to students who are even the slightest bit interested in international opportunities,” said Katie Palumbo, study abroad advisor at the SDSU Study Abroad office in the International Student Center (ISC). “That could include students who are interested in going abroad for 10 days, two weeks, a summer, a semester or an entire academic year. It’s also for students who are interested in international volunteer opportunities or internships abroad, or getting information on how they can travel or live abroad.”

Many of the SDSU offices that offer study abroad programs will have tables at the fair, including the ISC, the College of Extended Studies Faculty-Led Study Abroad office and multiple colleges and academic departments. Members of international-focused student organizations and several university-approved independent study abroad providers will also be at the fair, ready to answer questions.

But the stars of the fair – invariably – are the international students who enthusiastically pitch their home countries to potential travelers weighing their destination options. They decorate tables in the motif of their home nations and can often be seen wearing traditional clothing.

“They get really into it because it’s a contest and they want to win,” Palumbo said. “They’re so interested in sharing their culture with their classmates at the fair.”
