Texas Tech students studying abroad in Seville, Spain in the spring of 2010.

The study abroad program gives students the opportunity to have an international experience.

Texas Tech will host its biannual Study Abroad Fair from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. tomorrow (Sept. 15) in the Croslin Room of the University Library.

The event will have 42 tables of exhibitors including Texas Tech faculty from the summer study abroad programs and representatives of affiliate programs. Texas Tech students are invited to ask questions and gain information about the various study abroad opportunities

"We believe it's important for students to have an international experience while they are at Texas Tech, and study abroad is the best way to do that," said Elizabeth McDaniel, unit coordinator.

"We have a wide variety of programs for students to choose from, and we encourage them to see what opportunities are out there.

The staff of the study abroad department will partner with Texas Tech students who have previously studied abroad to answer any additional questions students might have.

Crosier said the study abroad program offers classes for students in almost every field of study. She said the event usually welcomes more than 1,000 students, and she hopes this year will be no exception.
