Fun at the Fair

September 14th, 2012 at 06:04 am

The Study Abroad Fair was a lot more fun than I thought it would be. The organizing agency sent out a rep, and we hit it off right away--two old English majors making
Hemingway and typewriter jokes. She was fabulous, had a good patter for approaching students, and made the day go very quickly.

Indeed, we had more interest and many more students than I expected. Our next session in this coming Tuesday, so I feel like I'm juggling this obligation with my teaching overload, so am up late grading tonight in a messy house with lots of laundry.

They brought us lunch, but I parked in the campus pay lot because it was raining. Still--a very productive day.

    We had our Study Abroad fair here the other day, and I happened to walk by on the way to a meeting. It looked like everyone was having so much fun, and the opportunities were amazing! Wish they sent development officers abroad. Smile

    So you think you'll have a good number of students? It sounds like a great opportunity for both you and the kids. Smile

    I hope so, Laura. We have to wait to see the final numbers.

    I'm living overseas right now, and there are a lot of kids here in SE Europe who want to study in the US, but they have absolutely no insurance that they will be granted a visa. I have a friend who was even granted a scholarship to a university in NC, and they denied his visa. A real shame, but it can lead to a tougher path when you are heading East=>West sometimes. Glad the fair went well!
