First Steps

What students say:

I initially intended to have the [study abroad] experience just to add a few more interesting lines on my resume, but it was so much more. I learned about myself and what place I have in this world and how much access I have to a previously seemingly-unattainable world.
For anyone on the fence about studying abroad: just do it. Have an open mind and an optimistic point of view, and you will soon modify your entire life.

First Step advising sessions are mandatory for all study abroad applicants as a starting point for the application process. A 20 minute First Step PowerPoint presentation will review how to select the best program for your needs, and review the application, advising, course approval and registration processes.

Sessions are held in the Study Abroad Resource room (502 UH) on the schedule below. The maximum seating is 20 per session on a first come – first served basis.

The presentation will start on time. Late arrivals will have to come to another session.
