First Factual Study Abroad Fair Held On 'Facebook'

NDSU - Education Fair Held On Facebook
For the very first time the Study Abroad programme is coming up with a new way of informing and inviting students on study abroad opportunities 'On The FACEBOOK'. The programme shall be held on Thursday from 10 am to 2pm.

 

In not just informs students about the opportunities and programmes but also about the financial aid and scholarships too. Students are being found more active on Facebook, and hence such a programme is held. The idea of making use of social media was made by the assistant director of Study Abroad, Tanya Kramer.

Tanya Kramer said "I came up with the idea partially after I was talking to a student about how they had heard about issues buying football tickets from a friend on Facebook while they were in class. And I asked her if that's pretty typical and the reply was that everyone's on Facebook, even during class. From that point I started to realize that Facebook could be a very good tool if we learned how to harness it and began to research how we could make the fair to go virtual through the Facebook."

Interested candidates can access the Virtual Study Abroad Fair on the NDSU Study Abroad Facebook Page.

NDSU is the first University to do a study abroad fair Online. According to Study Abroad Advisor Dominique Karlsson, the international admissions program has been holding online events in recent years, but there has not been anything online for study abroad.

Karlsson said "We had to figure out how best to present the information without having a significant barrier to participate, such as needing to download software. We think we have put together a great set to presentations that take advantage of the multimedia benefits of the Internet and will be of interest of visitors".

Karlssom further explained that, there are variety of options for classes open to students in all majors. She explained that students can pay NDSU tuition and still be eligible to study abroad. "In today's global business world, international experience is an enormous benefit in the job market", she said. "We want students to have fun and exciting experience abroad and then be able to use the skills gained abroad after they gradaute",she added.
