Global Education Week Recap
The week was full of events that provided information to students about the off-campus educational opportunities available at Denison. Students could learn about study abroad programs, international internships, scholarships, research opportunities, and connect with Alum.

The alum shared their rich experiences and answered questions from students.
The Fair included representatives from 20 of our study abroad program providers and was a great opportunity for students to get more in depth information on specific study abroad programs. Our representatives also offered a breakfast orientation for students studying abroad this spring and a formal presentation for any student interested in their programs.
