One of the tastiest welcome-back events to open fall semester 2013 involved the Office of International Education and free ice cream sundaes.
Last week’s “Get the Scoop on Study Abroad” event served sundaes to 185 students interested in education abroad, while staff members addressed questions regarding overseas study experiences. Students chose from among eight flavors named after UW-Green Bay study abroad destinations. For example, “The New Zealand” featured vanilla ice cream with heath toffee topping (a flavor called the “hokey pokey” by Kiwis) while “The France” consisted of coffee ice cream and chocolate sauce.
The Office of International Education conducts other outreach and informational activities, of course, led by twice-weekly informational sessions in the OIE suite, Cofrin Library 207. The sessions are offered at 2 p.m. every Tuesday and noon each Wednesday.
Another periodic event is the Study Abroad Fair, which this semester is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Phoenix C of the University Union.
