Study Abroad Fair Tomorrow!

Are you the kind of person that wishes to travel the world and learn about different cultures? Well tomorrow the Office of International Studies and Programs will be hosting a study abroad fair at the Rockwell Pavilion on the second floor of the M.D. Anderson Library starting at 11:00 AM.

On a campus like the University of Houston, you don't have to look very far to find cultural diversity. UH is a very diverse environment with many organizations of students from a wide variety of backgrounds.
