International Education Week: Student Summit on Global Education

November 9, 2012

Events, Study Abroad

As part of International Education Week, the Center for Global Education will be hosting a Student Summit on Global Education on November 13th. This student-led event will provide study abroad alumni an opportunity to share their experiences with the Mason community and prospective study abroad students. This event is unique in that students will see what learning abroad looks like through the lens of their peers. CGE alumni will discuss several different aspects of study abroad: The friendships that were created, the once-in-a-lifetime experiences they had, the way experiential learning impacted them, and the new perspectives gained on different cultures and their own communities.

The event will be from 9:30am-4pm in the West Lounge and various 3rd floor meeting rooms of the JC (complete schedule will be available on the the day of the event). The morning will consist of poster presentations by students from 10am-12pm, and the afternoon will showcase student-led panel presentations from 1pm-4pm.  We are looking forward to it, and hope that you can join us!  Please feel free to come and go as your schedule permits!
