Study Abroad Fair to go online

Published: 04 February 2013

NDSU students interested in studying abroad will soon have another option to learn about available programs. The Office of International Programs is hosting its first Virtual Study Abroad Fair. 

The fair is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at www.facebook.com/NDSUStudyAbroad. More information is available on the fair’s event page and at www.ndsu.edu/studyabroad. Interested students can learn more about study abroad programs ranging in duration from a full academic year or semester to a summer or short-term faculty-led program. 

“We are basing it within Facebook because that’s where students live online,” said Tanya Kramer, assistant director of study abroad in the Office of International Programs. 

The fair’s content will be similar to the fall and spring study abroad fairs typically held in the Memorial Union. Online presentations and live question-and-answer sessions will be held with NDSU faculty leaders, the international studies major adviser, financial aid advisers and study abroad program provider representatives. Students can peruse PowerPoint presentations, embedded videos and chat real-time with program representatives. 

Kramer said returned study abroad students also will be available to explain their experiences and chat with interested students. 

The virtual fair won’t replace the on-site study abroad fairs, Kramer said. It will be used as another tool to provide information to students. She said it appears to be one of the first times such an event has been held in the country.

NDSU is recognized as one of the nation's top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
