College of Education Holds International Studies Info Session

2015 College of Education Ice Cream SocialThe College of Education hosts a pizza party and ice cream social to get the word out about upcoming study abroad opportunities on Aug. 27.

All students are invited to attend. The event will be held from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in room J4 of the Jewell Building.

A representative from Regions Bank will be on hand to dispense advice on how students can save up money for international studies. Faculty from the College of Education will also be there to answer any questions students may have about study-abroad programs.

Brenau students have recently traveled to Belize and one student-teacher is studying in Ireland. Plans are now underway to take Brenau students to the Bahamas.

College of Education Office Manager Alynne Grace said the programs are short, so students don’t have to worry about delaying graduation. However, she said those experiences abroad are likely to impact students long after they receive their diplomas.

“Students who have studied abroad develop transferable skills like intercultural sensitivity, communication skills and flexibility,” she said, “which also make them more likely to be hired after graduation.”
