The Brigham Young University David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies has invited all students interested in academic study abroad to attend the International Study Program’s open house Thursday, Jan. 18, from 3 to 6 p.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.
Admission is free.
Each department-sponsored program will be represented at the event and former program participants and directors will be on hand to answer student questions about the programs.
“For the vast majority of ISP participants, their international experience has been life-changing,” said T. Lynn Elliott, ISP director. “Their experience may have led to changes in majors, opened up career paths or provided that extra something to be selected for professional or graduate schools. For a dedicated student, an international experience is simply invaluable.”
During the 2005-2006 academic year, the International Study Program sent more than 1,400 students to 116 programs in such locations as Great Britain, the South Pacific and Latin America, among others. The program is responsible for managing all credit-bearing international studies at BYU and has sent students to every continent, including Antarctica.
