Who said study abroad is only for students? On July 10th 43 members of the WKU community traveled to China through a program arranged by the Confucius Institute. Throughout their three-week stay in this country, the participants will work on their Chinese language skills, learn and embrace the Chinese culture, visit amazing locations and more importantly, create memories that will last a lifetime.
To follow the group's activities, check out the official Confucius Institute blog.
Around 300 students visited the spring 2014 Study Abroad Fair in MMTH to learn how they could earn credit on education abroad programs offered through WKU.
A new initiative at WKU is helping to diversify its education abroad participation.
During this monthís three-week Winter Term, 20 WKU faculty are expanding their classrooms and helping WKU students create a unique global learning experience through Faculty-Led Study Abroad (FLSA) with 10 programs spanning four continents.
A record number of students participated in the Fall 2012 Study Abroad Fair in Mass Media and Technology Hall, which many providers described as one of the best they had attended in recent years.
