Virtual Study Abroad Fair

  • Time: All Day

Register in advance to receive the information session weblinks: https://www.wku.edu/studyabroad/virtualfair/


Instead of our in-person 1-day study abroad fair, we’ll be hosting virtual events for a full week!

We will have numerous sessions with program providers and upcoming faculty-led programs. It’s a great opportunity to speak directly to the representatives and faculty to learn about their study abroad opportunities, application process, scholarships, etc.

You’ll also have opportunities to hear from study abroad alumni that have gone on faculty-led, exchange, and many other programs.

Participating students will have the chance to win giveaways, including scholarships toward a future study abroad program or passport application!

9:00am - 4:00pm

Mindfulness in the Practice Room with Dr. Jessica Warren

  • Location: Zoom
  • Time: 7:30pm

Looking for a way to expand your practice toolkit? Mindfulness is a complementary approach to daily musical practice, engaging the same mental and physical processes that we already use as musicians. It provides contemplative tools for awareness, exploration, and reflection that can be applied both in and outside of the practice room. In this discussion, we will explore how mindfulness can help you enjoy your practice sessions, deal with the stresses of musical life (including performance anxiety), and avoid burnout and injury. Suggestions for applications in the music classroom and further resources for educators will also be presented. Q&A will follow the presentation.

                                                                                                                         

Register for the event here. Additional information on Dr. Warren is available at jessicawarrenoboe.com. Contact Dr. Keith Sorrels for questions: keith.sorrels@wku.edu.
