Be like Frodo and take that first step

August 30, 2012

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, September 7 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. You'll get a chance to ask questions, pick up literature, and talk to people about the study abroad experience.


Imagine yourself studying business and economics in Vietnam, agriculture in New Zealand, international business and Spanish in Chile, engineering in Wales, or cultural history in Prague.

Explore the international opportunities for study, work, internships or volunteering awaiting you at the Study Abroad Fair!
