Opportunities you can’t afford to miss…
As we continue to look for ways to increase the “internationalization” of our college, we are pleased to increase the scholarship funding for study abroad. For 2013-2014 this increase means that we are committed to provide a $1000 scholarship for all CoBE students that choose to study abroad during 2013-2014 and meet the scholarship criteria. Students should speak to an advisor in the Center for Global Education now to begin planning your semester abroad.
If you are on campus, please plan on attending our Leadership Ways and Wisdom lecture series with Frank Witthun, Chairman, Cooper Gay Swett & Crawford. The event is in the Timmerman Auditorium in Hyland Hall on April 15 at 4:30pm.
