Education abroad information sessions available to CSU students

The education abroad office holds information meetings for students looking for a change in scenery while earning their degree.

The office, located in the Laurel Hall building, encourages students to attend their walk in hours and meetings


Josh Krokowski, education abroad staff member and senior who studied abroad last fall, encourages that all students attend the education abroad information meetings.

“It can be really daunting to try to find all the information yourself,” Krokowski said. “We’ve been through the process so we know how it is.”

For students who attend the education abroad information sessions or stop in for walk in hours, the office provides a handbook including everything students need to know about studying abroad. The handbook addresses all of the popular topics when thinking about traveling abroad such as cost, scholarships, finding the right program and pointing out the benefits.

“Education abroad is more than travel and adventure. You will gain skills in cross-cultural communication, learn to think critically, and develop self-confidence, flexibility, and an appreciation for diversity,” the handbook states.

In addition to the information meetings, the education abroad office offers guidance from peer advisers: students who have been abroad and understand the process. Maia Griswold, a senior, is a peer adviser who has been abroad for both spring Semester at Sea as well as a summer semester in China.

“I hope that no one would ever choose to not study abroad because their major doesn’t line up or they can’t find the classes they need,” Griswold said. “I really think there is a program and a fit for everyone and everyone can benefit from an education abroad experience. “
