Study Abroad Discovery Week: Sept. 14-18
In place of our annual study abroad fair, we’ll be hosting a full week’s worth of events for our Virtual Study Abroad Discovery Week. Each day of the week we’ll be focusing on a different topic related to study abroad such as how to choose the right program and funding study abroad. The week will culminate on September 18th with our virtual study abroad fair where we will have virtual meeting rooms for students and advisors to meet our study abroad program partners as well as our very own UIC faculty members leading programs. A full media kit with more details is forthcoming, but for now, please make a note on your calendar for the week of September 14th-18th and share with your students.

Study Abroad Virtual Trivia for UIC Advisors
It’s been one strange and difficult year. The Study Abroad Office would like to take some time to unwind and engage with you and is excited to invite all UIC advisors to a virtual trivia event. We’ll plan to share brief updates and then our very own trivia expert, Maggie Miller (Study Abroad Advisor), will host us in some internationally-focused trivia! We’ll send an official invite/RSVP out soon, but for now, please hold the date & time of September 10th from 4:00 to 5:00 PM.
The SAO is committed to providing all UIC students with meaningful international experiences and we know we can’t do this work without your support. Thanks for all that you do; we look forward to connecting!
