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.
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 to the Off-Campus Study Photo Exhibit.
Submit a photograph for the display TV in the Center for Global Education. You should be featured in this photo. You can send the photo as an attachment to Mrs. Palmer; include where the photo was taken and what term you were abroad.
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 Bates Today for speakers and other campus events related to your experience.
