March 20th is the deadline for completing an application to study abroad this coming summer or fall. If you have met with a Study Abroad advisor already, make sure all your materials are complete, and don't forget to apply for as many scholarships as you can!
For those of you who are undecided about study abroad, what are you waiting for? Attend a 1st Step Information Session! They are held 6 times a week; see the schedule here: http://studyabroad.uic.edu/first-steps/
Questions? Contact the UIC Study Abroad Office at (312) 413-7662 or at their office in 502 UH.
What UIC students are saying about their experience:
"Asking me to pick from one of my positive experiences [while studying abroad] would be like asking me to pick a favorite breath that I took in my lifetime."
"I initially intended to have the [study abroad] experience just add a few more interesting lines on my resume, but it was so much more. I learned about myself and what place I have in this world and how much access i have to a previously seemingly-unattainable world."
"For anyone on the fence about studying abroad: just do it. Have an open mind and optimistic point of view, and you will soon modify your entire life."
