Be like Frodo and take that first step

February 1, 2011

In the famous trilogy, 'The Lord of the Rings,' the hobbit Frodo reluctantly sets off on a mission, leaving his beloved homeland, the Shire, behind. After taking that first step, however, his horizons opened up to experiences he never could have imagined.

The first step toward your amazing journey may be a visit to the CSU Study Abroad Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday, Feb. 4 at the Lory Student Center Main Ballrooms, where you can find out about opportunities to volunteer, work, intern, travel, and study abroad.   

This is your chance to internationalize your education, explore the world, and be a bit of an adventurer yourself. It's a great chance to ask questions, pick up literature, and talk to people about the study abroad experience.


Imagine yourself studying marine sciences in Tasmania, agriculture in New Zealand, international business and Spanish in Chile, or cultural history in Prague...

Forty programs in 20 countries

Did you know that CSU has more than 40 programs in over 20 countries for you to consider when studying abroad? You could study ecotourism in the Bahamas, international media studies in Europe or engineering in Hungary or Luxemburg through CSU programs.

How about completing an internship in Dublin, Ireland or in London, England? There are programs in Africa, Asia, Europe/Eurasia, Latin America, the Caribbean and Oceania for you to choose from. Some CSU programs are led by a CSU faculty member while others will help you to enroll directly in a foreign partner university.
