February semester abroad deadlines fast approaching

Alison Davis, a sophomore elementary education major at UNK, spent the fall 2010 semester in China. She said that she expected that it would be a challenging experience, but never doubted that it would be unforgettable.

“I knew it was going to be different, but once you get there it’s a total culture shock,” she said.

“It was awesome though. I met a lot of good people and made friends that I still keep in touch with.” Davis says, “Just do it. I just decided one day that I wanted to sign up, and I will never regret it. It was a great experience.”

Applications for of the UNK semester abroad programs are due Feb. 15 to Ann Marie Park, Study Abroad Coordinator.

UNK students have the opportunity to experience two different full semester abroad programs within the next year. In the fall semester of 2011, Industrial education professor Dr. Richard Meznarich will lead a group of students to China, and in the spring semester of 2012, political science professor Dr. William Aviles will lead a group of students to Peru.

Both programs require a 2.5 GPA and the cost is equal to 12 credit hours, tuition and fees, one dorm room and a 15-meal plan at UNK. Each program offers five UNK courses in the UNK catalog, which makes them easy to register. You don’t have to worry about transferring the credit or using financial aid.

The study abroad website also lists some skills that you can develop by taking part in a semester abroad program: a greater understanding for other cultures, viewing your own culture through another light, greater tolerance for other’s opinions, improved foreign language skills and a chance for lifelong friendships.
