International Week at SAU

St. Ambrose University celebrated International Education Week by giving SAU students the chance to do a meet and greet with the Study Abroad staff in Ambrose Hall on Nov. 14, from 4 to 6 p.m.


At the meet and greet, you got the chance to have any of your question answered about studying abroad.


Every month, the study abroad outreach coordinators, Libby Miller, Griffin Nickole, and Sam Onnen put together an study abroad event to inform SAU students about study abroad opportunities available to them.


Last month, the outreach coordinators held a late night student panel in the Beehive where they brought current students who have studied abroad before and they shared their experiences.


Not only do the study abroad outreach coordinators put together events, but they also help out in the Center for International Education (Ambrose Hall 239) by answering any students questions about studying abroad or the study abroad application process.


St. Ambrose study abroad programs give you the chance to study abroad for a semester in places all over the world, including the United Kingdom, Spain, Ecuador, Italy, Korea, Japan, Germany, Cyprus, Croatia, Belize, Canada, Australia, Peru, Chile, Costa Rica, among others.


You don’t even have to study abroad for an entire semester, either. There are programs that can be as short as three weeks. Depending on the program, a semester of studying abroad is generally cheaper than a semester of studying at SAU.


Any student may be eligible to study abroad, no matter what their major is or if they are in sports or not.


“When I studied abroad, it was my first time out of the country. Being out of the country and still being able to get college credit was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up,” Sam Onnen, outreach coordinator, said. “Not only did I get college credit, but I also got to see the world in a different perspective, and learn new cultures.”
