Have all these amazing pictures and don’t know what to do?
Blurb is a great website that allows you to compile your pictures, blog entries, journal entries, etc into a book. Previous returnees have utilized this site and suggested you do the same. It is an easy step-by-step process with reasonable rates. All you have to do is download the program.
Upon completion of your program, transcripts will be sent to the Center for International Programs. From here they will be sent to Admissions. If you have any issues with this contact Admissions or your academic advisor.
UNI 101 Presentations
We encourage you to share your experience with other students through UNI 101 presentations. Our office gets multiple requests for presentations each semester. The information provided is greatly enhanced by a personal account. It gives life to the material; students would much rather hear your stories than us.
Each semester our office hosts a pizza party for study abroad returnees. This is just a chance for students to get together and share stories and experiences. During this time let us know how our office and your program provider are doing and suggest things for future improvements.
For more events and ways to stay involved, look for the Study Abroad emails and keep in touch with our office. Be sure to join the Marshall University Study Abroad Facebook page to find more ways to use your experiences to reach out to our campus. As always feel free to stop by the office, we are always looking for new and creative ways to share about study abroad!
If you are still interested in volunteering, interning, or attending graduate school abroad, our office is the place to go. We have plenty of information to assist you in finding the perfect program.
