Story tips, concerns, questions?

 By Yesenia Flores, Staff Reporter

Here’s the issue: you want to take a break from your typical school education to gain life experience, but want to let time pass you by without feeling productive.

A possible solution? Study abroad! 

 The College of Extended & International Education’s Study Abroad Office is holding a Study Abroad Fair Thursday from noon to 1 p.m. on the Loker Student Union East Walkway.

Faculty and students will have the opportunity to discuss and meet with representatives from the study abroad program providers and CSUDH faculty that currently lead the programs.

Currently, the three study abroad options that one can choose from include a winter session in Mexico, spring intersession in Bulgaria and the summer S\session in Guatemala.

According to the Study Abroad page on the CSUDH website, studying abroad is one of the most academically rewarding experiences that one can have as a student. Not only does it enhance your education, but it also enhances your life experience.

“I think [studying abroad] will be a perfect balance for me because not only will I be free of Los Angeles’ smog and my siblings, but I’ll get to experience a whole new country without actually leaving home permanently,” said Marissa Allen, a sophomore majoring in history.

   A beneficial reason for studying abroad, said Allen, was that she would be able to take a break from her usual day-to-day life without falling behind in her education and still hold her graduation year goal of 2022.

 Jessica Martinez, a freshman student majoring in liberal studies, said that studying abroad would give her an opportunity to travel while continuing her college career with no breaks.

“My dilemma is wanting to get out and travel, but also finishing school as fast as I can,” said Martinez. “I’m in school all year long, I take classes during spring, winter and summer as well as fall and spring, like everybody else.”

    For more information about the Study Abroad Fair or opportunities regarding studying abroad, tuition, housing and course planning contact the College of Extended and International Education’s International Outreach Office at studyabroad@csudh.edu, or   (310)243-3919.
