A Student Guide to Study Abroad to be Released!
At the NAFSA conference this week in St. Louis, Student Guide to Study Abroad is being released for pre-sale. This handy guide is my latest book, a collaboration with IIE and AIFS designed to combine the best thinking on study abroad today. Every student who wants to succeed in the global economy should study abroad. And every student who is considering studying abroad should read this book! Packed with practical “how to” information offered in a fun and engaging style, this valuable hands-on resource includes 100 easy-to-follow tips and dozens of real-life stories. Each chapter features useful quotes and anecdotes from a diverse collection of students, advisers and professionals from across the country.
Studying abroad should be part of every student’s college education.
Student Guide to Study Abroad is a must-have for college students and their parents. In it we offer comprehensive advice on the entire process:
- Before you go: Doing the research to choose the right program, figure out the financials, and prepare properly for your big adventure abroad
- While abroad: Making the most of your time abroad by understanding and dealing with culture shock, exploring the benefits of cultural immersion, and staying safe and healthy while having fun
- When you return: Transitioning back to life in the States by learning to adapt, networking with like-minded global souls, and using study abroad to showcase your global growth and learning
Student Guide to Study Abroad arms students with the critical information needed to make one of the most important decisions of your college career.
