Why You Should Study Abroad

If you have ever thought, "Study Abroad isn't for me," then this session is for you. Diversity Abroad will lead the discussion in identifying how important it is for more diverse American students to pursue opportunities abroad. We will explore the many reasons why study abroad is beneficial for all student identities, regardless of your ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or major (to name a few). Learn about the ways study abroad sets you apart fom others - personally, professionally, and academically - and how you will be a more competitive candidate in your future career goals. 10am-11am, MU Garrison

Financial Aid for Study Abroad 

Are you interested in study abroad but are afraid you can’t afford it? Come to our Financial Aid for Study Abroad workshop and learn how financial aid works for students planning to go abroad in one of our programs. We will show you where to find all of our program budgets and how they are structured so you can determine what is included in the program fees. We will also share online tools to help you budget and talk about scholarships available for study abroad. 11am-12pm, MU Garrison

SpokenWorld: Telling Our Global UC Davis Stories

You have traveled and met people, you have stories to tell and an ear for other people’s stories. Come workshop your story with us and hear our stories too. With a little preparation you can have a personal story ready to tell. Your stories might illustrate how you were changed, the people you met, and the places you discovered. A little storytelling practice could pay off when regaling friends...or even help set you apart in job interviews. Spoken word, first-person nonfiction is popular now on podcasts ranging from This American Life to The Moth Radio Hour.  We guarantee you will walk away knowing yourself and your story better. 2pm-3pm, MU Garrison
