Campus Visits and Study Abroad Fairs
Would you like us to visit your campus? Attend a study abroad fair? Do info sessions or classroom presentations? Please invite us!
We absolutely welcome site visits from our partners and those considering affiliation! During a site visit, you can meet our local staff, join classes, tour the campus/host city, participate in some of our organized excursions and activities, and gain insight into the student experience with SRAS. Contact us to start planning your trip!
Just yesterday my student successfully defended her honors thesis on environmentalism around Lake Baikal, a project that would not have been possible without the fieldwork that she conducted on her SRAS study abroad program in Irkutsk. I hope to see more such projects in the future and will keep directing students to SRAS programs!
At Stetson, we’ve used SRAS to arrange all of our student study abroad trips for the past five or six years. During that time we’ve sent dozens of students on summer- and semester-long programs in Moscow, St Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod and Irkutsk. In every interaction I’ve had with them, SRAS has been prompt, reliable, knowledgable, courteous and quick to lend a hand when needed.
