The Study Abroad Office plans and coordinates an annual fair with hundreds of student participants and over 100 informational booths. All Faculty Directors with approved programs are invited to have a table at the fair. You should expect to receive information about the date and further details about participating in the Study Abroad Fair from your International Coordinator in the months before the event.
The Study Abroad Fair is perhaps the best opportunity you have to contact students outside your academic unit. It could also be one of the few times students can put a face with your program. Have an active presence at the Study Abroad Fair by providing a powerful display and demonstrating high energy to attract students to your program. Additionally, think about recruiting your former program participants to work your table with you at the Fair and to share their experiences with interested students. Your program alumni are powerful tools in your toolbox when it comes to marketing!
Make sure to check out our Student FAQs before the fair!
Bear in mind that the Study Abroad Fair is just one avenue for marketing so it shouldn’t be your primary method of recruiting program participants!
