UNCG Students Prepare to Go Abroad!

Rani Chatrath, Prasamsa Sharma, and Joselin Paz Henriquez

Rani Chatrath, Prasamsa Sharma, and Joselin Paz Henriquez

The students who have been chosen to study abroad for the spring 2012 semester have been announced!  Each student is part of either an exchange program between UNCG and an international partner, UNCEP, or the ISEP program which allows students to choose from programs that are not in exchange with UNCG.  Currently UNCG has exchanges with over 100 international universities, and through ISEP student can choose from over 39 countries worldwide.  As you can see, the opportunities abound!

On October 22, 2011, outgoing students studying at bilateral partners participated in a pre-departure orientation.  Students had the opportunity to engage in a cultural simulation and explore the topic of culture shock, as well as get some of their questions answered by a panel of international exchange students.  The orientation also provided students with some basic information about going abroad, including logistics, legal and financial issues, health concerns, safety, academics, and country-specific guidelines.  IPC would like to thank Wendy Jones-Worden (Languages, Literatures, and Cultures) for helping with students going to Spain, Dr. Jonathan Tudge (Human Development & Family Studies) for helping with students going to Estonia and Poland, Dr. Chiaki Takagi (Languages, Literatures, and Cultures) for helping with students going to Japan, and Dr. Seung Hyun-Lee (Media Studies) for helping with students going to South Korea.  We wish the outgoing students well as they embark on a new adventure!

On November 5, 2011, UNC Exchange Program (UNCEP) hosted outgoing students from the entire UNC system who are studying abroad through ISEP or UNCEP. The pre-departure orientation was held on the campus of UNCG and offered a similar program to that of the October 22 orientation.  Members of the ISEP staff from Arlington, VA, assisted with 72 outgoing students in ISEP programs.  Also, twenty coordinators from around the state of North Carolina assisted with the orientation programming for ISEP students as well as with 58 UNCEP outgoing students in UNCEP specific programs.  UNCEP staff would like to thank all who came on Saturday, November 5 and sends well wishes to all North Carolina study abroad students!

For anyone interested in studying abroad, it is never too early to begin the process!  Stop by 207 Foust Building or visit the IPC website () for more information.
