Mercer hosted a Study Abroad Fair in Connell Student Center Sept. 13 throughout the lunch hours to give current students information on upcoming study abroad opportunities.
Mercer offers a wide variety of international educational experiences at many destinations, many of which were represented at the fair.
Students who are interested in studying abroad were able to gather information about various destinations, discuss opportunities and ask questions to students who have traveled through the specific program. Besides study abroad, other international organizations were present such as Mercer on Mission.
In the 2010-2011 school year, Mercer had 175 students travel abroad to a variety of destinations and 138 students came from the Macon camps program. Currently, there are 94 international students from six continents attending Mercer as a study abroad student. Before undergraduates finish their education at Mercer, nearly 25 percent participate in study abroad or Mercer on Mission.
