Hello there!

Thank you for your interest in studying abroad! Congratulations on taking the leap to find out more about your study abroad opportunities! The first step is to attend one of the upcoming information meetings held three or four times each week throughout the semester. The one-hour information meeting will provide you with plenty of information that will be helpful to you in making an informed decision about when you will go, about how long a program you will participate in and the effect of that decision, and where you will choose to study.

You can sign-up for this meeting in person at Center for International Education or by calling our front desk at 707-664-2582. This meeting will cover most everything you need to know to get started. After attending the meeting you can make a private appointment with me to discuss the particulars of your own situation.

As I do not do extensive advising by email, it is important that you attend the information meeting and then set-up an appointment to speak to me. The information meeting times for the upcoming semester are as follows:
