Looking for a way to step onto the global stage? Studying abroad is an ideal way to immerse yourself in a different culture, and students often cite study abroad as one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences of their lives.

To see how a few Bryn Mawr students have fared in study-abroad placements recently, come to a student showcase hosted by President Jane McAuliffe, a passionate advocate of international collaborations in education, in Erdman Living Room on Monday, Oct. 4, from 6 to 7:15 p.m. Over dessert, three seniors will share their experiences, and the Office of International Programs will offer information about study-abroad programs available to Bryn Mawr students.

On the program:

  • Christina Wagner, who majors in history at Haverford. Wagner studied in Prague, Czech Republic, at the Collegium Hieronymi Pragensis Independent Educational center, specializing in the liberal arts
  • Saskia Guerrier, an Africana studies major. Guerrier studied in Dakar and Saint-Louis, Senegal, at the Baobab Center in Dakar and Universit√© Gaston Berge in Saint-Louis, through the Pennsylvania/African Studies Consortium
