To help students learn about the opportunities available to them, the university is holding its first Study Abroad Fair, on Thursday, March 6, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Setzer Student Center.

There, interested students will have opportunity to meet with program representatives, students who have recently returned from study abroad experiences and the LU Study Abroad Staff to learn about the wide array of study abroad opportunities Lamar University offers.

An opportunity to engage with students from around the world presents unique perspectives and global awareness. The advantage of studying abroad with Lamar University is learning in another country, making long-lasting friendships and memories.
