As the new semester is in full-swing, the Study Abroad office is working to prepare our Zags to head abroad this summer and fall. The deadline for Gonzaga in Florence summer 2018 has been extended to March 1. The deadline for all sponsored programs for fall 2018 is also March 1. To get a glimpse of what previous and current study abroad students are doing, follow us on Instagram (Zagsabroad) and on Facebook (@GoAbroadZAGS).
For our Zags who have just returned from their time abroad, the Center for Global Engagement held a re-entry lunch on Wednesday, January 31. At the lunch, students met up with other Zags who had studied abroad, shared their experiences and reflected on the impacts of their intercultural experiences. We also discussed opportunities to go abroad after graduation and different ways to get involved in the global community in Spokane. If your student is interested in learning more, encourage them to connect with the CGE. We would be more than happy to discuss anything international!
