MSU to Host Education Abroad Fair Thursday
By West Kentucky Star Staff
MURRAY - Murray State University’s education abroad office will hold an Education Abroad Fair Thursday, Sept. 13 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. 
According to an MSU press release, program representatives and Murray State students, faculty and staff will share information about their selected programs during the fair with students who are interested in learning about education abroad opportunities. Students still exploring their options can also use this informal event to narrow their search and speak with others who have already experienced the programs.
The university says education abroad programs offer the unique opportunity to gain course credits while seeing the world and experiencing different cultures.
A team of advisors in the education abroad office at Murray State are prepared to help students manage the planning and cost of programs through one-on-one advising sessions, scholarship workshops and budget sheets.
The education abroad office recommends that students keep the academic fit for the program in mind — how it fulfills their major, minor, area or other degree requirements. They also ask that students consider their personal goals, such as independence, language fluency or heritage-seeking when selecting an education abroad program.
Visit and select “For Students” to see step-by-step instructions on how to begin exploring education abroad opportunities at Murray State. Open study abroad advising is held Mondays at 3 p.m. and Thursdays at 11 a.m. in Waterfield Library room 210. No appointment is necessary.
