Students will use the Program Brochure to access to information about your program. Students will apply to the program through this webpage. You may also want to create a webpage that students can access through your department’s website. Consider sharing pictures, testimonials, videos, travel plans, etc. We will link to any supplemental webpage that you provide to us. Make sure that your site links to ours and does not have contradictory content. Blogs (i.e. WordPress) and social media are also great tools for sharing information, scheduling events, and giving an overview of the program dates, course descriptions, site visits, housing, and field trips. Since students are accustomed to using social media in their everyday life, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube can be a great platforms for promotion. OSA is very active on Facebook and Instagram and is happy to share your social media posts.
Study Abroad Fair
Each year, the Office of Study Abroad invites program leaders to attend our annual Study Abroad fair on October 17, 2018 in the Qatar Ballroom from 2 -5 pm. We will provide a table but it's up to you to bring some advertising material to attract student interest. If you cannot attend the whole event, inform us so that we can have coverage at the table for the entire fair. If you know of any former students that have been on one of your summer programs, please invite them to the fair! Fill out the Study Abroad Fair registration form here so we can be sure to reserve a table and advertise your attendance at the event.
Flyers, Posters and Brochures
Enlist program alumni to spread the word on their networks. Don't be shy in asking them to use word of mouth to share program information with their peers!
