DU community encourages students to study abroad

My slideshow is about the study abroad experience many DU students have during their time in college. It combines a brief overview of the process in which students must follow in order to apply to study abroad with facts and stories from students who have been abroad. I thought the combination would be a great informational source for students thinking about going abroad next fall.

The photos shown in the slideshow are a combination of the International House at DU, where students will go throughout their applying process. Also, there are some of DU students who have gone abroad or are planning to. The pictures go along with the caption in order to help the viewer understand.

The opening photo is the sign at the International House at DU. I thought the sign was a good idea to include at the beginning because it has the address and the name of the place where students should go to start the application process. Others include students who are planning to study abroad and those who have already had the experience. The last photo is of a world globe, representing the world of possibilities that DU students have when they study abroad.

Since this was supposed to be an informational slideshow on the process of studying abroad, I took and included a lot of pictures of the International House. I didn’t end up using a lot of the ones of the inside of the building though because they didn’t pertain to the slideshow. I wish that I would have gotten a better picture of a Study Abroad 101 session. The one that I attended didn’t have many people.

My slideshow links with Issue Story 1 because my issue story was also meant to be informational. I thought that including about students’ past experiences along with the process of applying to study abroad in the issue story would really encourage them to take the step in doing this. Therefore, seeing photos and getting all the necessary information from the slideshow would only encourage them more.
