International Oppurtunities Speed Dating

On Wednesday, April 9, 2014, Office of International ProgramsStudy Abroad, , and the Steinbright Career Development Center sponsored the first International Opportunities Speed Dating event, as part of World Fusion Fest 2014. The purpose of this event was to connect students interested in the various international opportunities available at Drexel, including study abroad and coop abroad, with students who have already participated in international programs.

Students were given a minute and a half to introduce themselves and discuss their international experiences and favorite memories from their time abroad.. International “business cards” were provided for students to keep in contact with each other if they had any further questions.

More than 50 students from across academic disciplines were in attendance, and conversations ranged from study abroad programs in Spain to co-op abroad in Malaysia. The success of the event can be attributed to the importance of study abroad and co-op abroad opportunities to Drexel students.

If you missed out on this great event, there will be a second International Opportunities Speed Dating event this summer term. Stay tuned! For more information on Study Abroad or International Co-op please click on the links provided.
