Who said study abroad is only for students? On July 10th 43 members of the WKU community traveled to China through a program arranged by the Confucius Institute. Throughout their three-week stay in this country, the participants will work on their Chinese language skills, learn and embrace the Chinese culture, visit amazing locations and more importantly, create memories that will last a lifetime.
To follow the group's activities, check out the official Confucius Institute blog.
SAGL awarded a total of $65,000 in World Topper Scholarships to 160 WKU students who are studying abroad in upcoming terms. The World Topper Scholarship is one of a number of scholarships available to WKU students who pursue international experiences.
WKU graduates are successfully landing solid starting positions, thanks, in part, to the knowledge, skills and experience they gained on their undergraduate study abroad programs.
A record number of students participated in the Fall 2012 Study Abroad Fair in Mass Media and Technology Hall, which many providers described as one of the best they had attended in recent years.
