The UR Global Fair is designed to help students learn more about the many overseas opportunities available to them. It is co-sponsored by the Office of Minority Student Affairs along with the Center for Study Abroad, the McNair Program, the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the Office of the Dean of Freshmen, and the Office of the Dean of Sophomores.
The Fair highlights study abroad programs with which the University of Rochester has formal affiliations. There are information tables for all UR-sponsored study abroad programs, as well as other semester, year, and summer international opportunities. There will also be numerous study abroad returnees on hand to provide peer advising as they share information and advice based on their own overseas studies. Finally, representatives from various College departments will be available to advise students about how study abroad can fit into the overall UR experience, and enhance graduate school and career opportunities.
