Students mull options at Study Abroad Fair

spacer

No, you don't have to speak Twi to study in Ghana. But yes, you need at least two years of Spanish for Madrid.

No, there's no alcohol in the conservative Arab emirate of Sharjah. But yes, there's an active student life and some pristine beaches-and for those who like the club scene (and more populous beaches), cosmopolitan Dubai is only 20 minutes down the highway.

AU students who have studied abroad volunteered to sit in the hot sun last week-hot, at least, for students like Allison Meredith '06, recently returned from Scotland-and share their experiences with others mulling the many options available through AU Abroad.

There were also representatives of foreign universities and exchange programs at AU Abroad's annual Study Abroad Fair, which featured 84 sites in 48 countries. Some 800 students will study abroad this year alone, and over 60 percent of all AU students will study abroad before they graduate.

Bethany Arnold '06 was so enthusiastic about her experience at AU's Study Abroad enclave in Brussels that she volunteered the minute she received an e-mail message about the fair. "I loved it so much, I just wanted to talk about it," she says.
