Missouri State Study Away students have increased by 37% in the last two years, while faculty led programs have grown from 9 in 2009 to 35 for 2013. What departments send out the most students? Where are those students going? Which programs are students considering for certain regions of the world? Join Elizabeth Strong and Miko McFarland to learn interesting Study Away facts and figures, and how you can use them to maximize your advising sessions. We’ll also discuss ways to engage students in Study Away conversations during advisement, hear from former Study Away students, and provide the top ten Study Away advising tips.
