As a part of the Study Abroad Goes Local initiative, the OIP is hosting several region-specific pre-departure dinners. We would really love it if you could come to talk to students who are preparing to study abroad to answer any questions they might have or impart any advice they may find useful. These dinners are a great opportunity to pass on pointers and decrease overall stress in the study abroad process.
The dinners are scheduled as follows. Please let us know if you’re available on the night of the region where you studied.
Here’s the schedule:

Americas- Tuesday, March 24, 6:00 PM RHOADS MTG ROOM (Directly next to Rhoads Dining Hall)
(Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador and Mexico)

East Asia/ Pacific- Thursday, March 26, 6:00 PM Dorothy Vernon Room
