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 <dvincent@bates.edu>; 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.
