Events & Outreach

Each semester, the Global Education Office offers many ways to learn about study abroad across campus, including information sessions, open houses, and information fairs. Scroll down to see what we have coming up!

GEO also sends both student and staff representatives to other organizations’ events to talk about opportunities for study abroad. If you’d like us to come to your event, email us at geo@vanderbilt.edu. Please submit your request at least 7 days prior to your event. You can expect a response from us within 3 business days.

If you’d like to meet up with us during our regular office hours, or make an appointment with one of our advisors, check out our Advising page.
