Extending the Experience at Bates
In a sense, the study abroad experience is never completely over. It can be extended at Bates in many ways:
Consider a senior thesis which builds on your experience. The Barlow Grant web page has information about Thesis Grants.
Consider taking a course in an interest you developed while abroad. It might be art history, politics, sociology, women and gender studies or another interest.
Plan a presentation or other activity on campus or in the community. This can be a presentation at a local school, a talk or display on campus, or a presentation at the Mt. David Summit. The Barlow Grant program can provide funding for these activities.
Submit a photograph for the annual study abroad photography exhibit. Information about the 2015 exhibit will appear in January 2015.
Submit a photograph for the display TV in the Off-Campus Study Office. You should be featured in this photo. You can send the photo as an attachment to Mrs Vincent <firstname.lastname@example.org>; include where the photo was taken.
Consider writing about your experience for The Bates Student, The Garnet, or other campus publications.
Apply to serve as a student representative on the Off-Campus Study Committee.
Follow the Bates Daily for speakers and other campus events related to your experience.
