Study Abroad director reveals reality

With the new addition of the Plus One Scholarship, a program allowing students to pursue a tuition-free fifth year, more students may be able to fit study abroad during their first four years.

Devika Milner, director of study abroad, says that students sometimes do not apply because of prevailing myths, such as cost and the rigor of certain majors. According to Milner, however, these myths are not always the case, and students have more options than they may anticipate.

The deadline to apply for summer, fall and year-long study abroad programs is March 1. For more information, visit or contact Milner at
