Getting Involved With Overseas Studies

Study Abroad Fair - September 5th, 2012 on Trousdale Parkway

Come sit at the table for your country for a while and tell people about your experience! As you may know, most students make their first serious inquiries about study abroad at this event, and it is often through conversations with past alumni that they make their decision. Email Overseas Studies to participate.


Photo, Film, and Essay Contests open for submissions
Deadline: October 1st, 2012

The themes for this year are "Capturing Communication" and "Gatherings" (Wide open to your interpretation.) We'll send out another reminder and more details on these contests in January. Photos (3 MAX.) should be submitted to as jpg files. Essays should be submitted to the same email address as a word document and be 3 pages max. Films can be submitted on DVD to our office or via email providing a URL to the film (max length- 5 minutes). All submissions can and may be used by USC Overseas Studies and USC to promote study abroad and USC programs.
