Welcome Back Study Abroad Students!
New Advising and Walk-in Hours

Welcome back to the 54 students who just returned to snowy Cleveland after spending fall semester abroad! We trust you had a wonderful and valuable experience and want to hear about it! Be checking your email for information on a get-together and ways to share your study abroad stories with each other, the campus community, even prospective CWRU students!
NEW in 2015: The Office of Education Abroad is adding services to support students in the form of Walk-In Hours and Group Advising Sessions.
  1.  Walk-In Hours: We will have walk-in hours from 12:30 – 2pm (community hour) every Friday. Both Study Abroad Advisors will be available to answer quick questions during this time. Walk-in hours are ideal for students who have already met with a study abroad advisor and have a quick follow-up question, for students who need to make their first advising appointment, or for returning students who want to stop in and say hello.
  1. Group Advising: Group advising is for those students not sure of where or when they want to study abroad, but who want details and ideas. It’s perfect for undeclared majors or someone just seeking more information. We will offer advising for small groups of students interested in studying abroad on:
    1.    Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5 – 6pm with Autumn
    2.    Mondays and Wednesdays from 12:30 – 1:30 pm with Matt
As always, you can email to make an appointment with an advisor and see what type of advising is best for you. Group advising and walk-in hours are just two of the options available to you, and the study abroad advisors are always happy to help you start your journey abroad.
