Students, faculty and study abroad advisors all share their thoughts on study abroad
Students worry over whether or not their study abroad trips will be affected
While summer study abroad is canceled, on-campus activities are a go.
COVID-19 has forced the postponement of many trips and events. Butler students planning on studying abroad in the summer of 2020 had their trips canceled and are now faced with the potential further postponement of their trips this summer.
Last week, the Center for Global Education informed students of the cancellation, which will affect around 65 people.
Butler’s Center for Global Education made decision to cancel study abroad programs based on CDC and U.S. State Department travel advisories, countries’ limited border access.
Twenty students will have the chance to spend their 2020 spring semester in Australia and New Zealand, taking 14 credits of Butler core curriculum and getting to visit places like the Great Barrier Reef and more.
Butler’s Center for Global Education will be hosting its first annual Study Abroad Fair Oct. 3. The event will take place in the Fairview Community Room from 4 to 7 p.m.
