February 2, 2016

By Christopher Sich

Students interested in studying abroad next year can start learning about the possibilities as early as next week. The first session-regarding the short-term Rome trip-is at 2:30 p.m., Feb. 2 in Parmer 016.

But if for some reason Rome does not appeal to you, don’t fret, there are 13 other information sessions you can attend. The following sessions will all be in Parmer 016:

  • Rome (Italy): Feb. 2nd & 18th, 2:30 p.m.
  • Limerick (Ireland): Feb. 4th, 2:30p.m.
  • Stellenbosch (South Africa): Feb. 9th, 2:30 p.m.
  • Salzburg (Austria): Feb. 11th, 2:30 p.m.
  • Salamanca (Spain): Feb. 23rd, 2:30 p.m.

A session on London will be held Feb. 15 and Feb. 16 in the Lewis Alcove. London director Julia Gaulter will be present to provide information.

“Before we accept an application you must attend an information session,” said Sue Ponremy, director of international studies.

Freshman interested in studying abroad later on in their college career should start planning now.

“It is suggested that you start planning freshman year so you can begin planning academically and financially,” said Ponremy. “Not all majors are offered in the study abroad program, so you must start early so you can plan around your major.”

If you have any questions you can contact Sue Ponremy at sponremy@dom.edu, or you can visit Dominicans study broad website www.dom.edu/academics/studyabroad for more information.
