Students Tout Power of Experiential Learning at Study Abroad Fair

• from Provost Web

Davae Gibson could not stop smiling, betraying her desire to spend a semester at a top uni­ver­sity in another country.

It was Thursday morning in the Curry Stu­dent Center Indoor Quad, the site of this fall’s Study Abroad Fair.

“I really want to take advan­tage of North­eastern and get inter­na­tional expe­ri­ence,” said Gibson, AMD’19. “What better way to learn more about dif­ferent cultures?”

She noted that London and Rome topped her inter­na­tional wish list. As the second-​​year archi­tec­ture major put it, “There’s so much beau­tiful archi­tec­ture in Europe.”

The fair, hosted by Northeastern’s Global Expe­ri­ence Office, con­vened 500 stu­dents as well as rep­re­sen­ta­tives of more than 30 inter­na­tional study programs.
