A special panel discussion, "Going Abroad: The Basics and Benefits of Studying Internationally at BYU," will be presented by International Study Programs coordinators, at 10 a.m. Wednesday, March 16.
 
Throughout the four-day conference an International Art Show will showcase student art pieces with a cross-cultural theme. A reception will be held at noon Friday, March 18 to recognize the Juror's Choice Award and the People's Choice Award with cash prizes and to hear from the artist’s about their work.
 
Each year students across many disciplines take advantage of a field study to enhance their academic studies. Interested students should contact International Study Programs, 101 HRCB, (801) 422-3686, isp@byu.edu, or visit online at kennedy.byu.edu/isp.
