The students of Incarnate Word flowed briskly in and out of Marian Hall Ballroom to get information on “sister schools” featured in the Study Abroad Fair, Thursday, Sept. 13.

This year, UIW introduced its new European Study Center in Heidelberg, Germany, and “sister school” SRH University Heidelberg.

For many students, this is an opportunity to take advantage of earning credit hours for UIW by having credits transfer at the end of the semester. Housing is included in the program fee and will either be living at the center itself or nearby in shared apartments. Food, essential to the average college student, will be provided by accommodation of the SRH Cafeteria cooking facilities. Group meals are also encompassed in the plan as well. The dates for the fall semester are from early September to late December and for the spring semester, early January to early May. Financial aid and scholarships can be used as payments and the total cost comes out to $11,990.

Among the Asian options was Kumamoto Gakuen University in Kumamoto, Japan.[…]
