;illi •» ' • ii» Oh the Places We Will Go! Story by Susan Oliphant When you think you need a break from Ole Miss and Oxford, consider studying abroad! We have study abroad opportunities for our students all over the world, almost any time of the year, and for lengths of time ranging from two weeks to an entire academic year. You will receive college credit for your studies, get to see and experience another culture, travel, and get that break you wanted. A study-abroad experience is a life- changing experience. We have many study abroad programs that are " exchange " pro- grams. Exchange programs are par- ticularly attractive because they can save you lots of money while really involving you in another countr i cul- ture. An exchange is the best way to gain fluency in another language. You study at foreign university for the price of Ole Miss tuition. Choose from sites in Europe, Asia, Africa, South and Central America, Canada, or Australia. Many times your classes can be taught in English if you do not feel ready for that total submersion. We also offer many programs during the summer or break period. What could be more exciting than to complete your second year of a foreign language dar- ing a summer study in Germany, Spain, or France? Or how about spending half of your summer study- ing in London, Cambridge, Dublin, or Scodand, and still earning Ole Miss credit? We have short-term courses during the Winter Break in London or Australia, and in May in Ireland. Often studying around people who real- ly speak your second language is such fun that you will be searching for a way to learn more about it and come back again. You can have a full and active life here and still have time to take out for some " abroad " adventure. You do need to plan for it. Come by the Study Abroad Office and see what is available. Keep your grades up. Talk to your parents. And do not think it is impossible. We have programs to fit most majors and most budgets. If you do not do this while yoiire in college, chances are you never will. Far sooner than you can now imagine, you will have obligations that make a year, a semester, or even a few weeks abroad too com- plicated to arrange. Do not miss out on such a mix- ture of education, self-knowledge, travel, and fun. le Miss students have studied abroad in the following countries: Australia Canada Costa Rica England Finland France Germany Hungary Ireland Kenya Malta Mexico Phillipines Spain Sweden W.

Right: These three students check the bulletin board in the Union for adds about fur- niture. I World of Difference " I am making a lot of friends, both Amer- ican and international students " -Chachura Oumpigul, Thailand Around 600 students and faculty form 66 countries study and work at the University of Mississippi this school term. Many international students are enchanted with Southern cul- ture, a laid-back environment, and the cit)fe literary tradition. Since the late 1980s, inter- national enrollments at Ole Miss have increased, surpassing 500, especially more students form Malaysia and China. More international students " diversify the campus and allow 258 Student Life Story by Takehiko Nomura American students to have contact with people from different coun- tries and different cultures and broaden their educational experi- ence ' , ' said Nolan Shaepard, direc- tor of the Ole Miss International Programs. " (So) American students are more aware of global issues and (the) impact of other cultures; ' The annual international fes- tival held in the cit) sole shopping mall, which showcases each of about 25 participating countr) cul- ture and serves ethnic food, is one of the community biggest events. Malaysian Night, Indian Night and Chinese New Year party also attract students, faculty and residents, showering them with eth- nic taste, folk songs and rhythmic dance with vivid costumes. Those from abroad usually have a hard time acclimating to the new environment. " When I first came here in August 1995, this college town was so quiet. I wondered how I could survive; ' said Koffi Awute, an Education graduate student from Togo. " I am making a lot of friends, both American and inter national students ' , ' said Chachural Ounpigul, a TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Othei Languages) graduate student fromJ Thailand. " Its hard to catch up with class, but my advisors and friends are helpful ; ' The last year alone Shepard flew to Israel, South Africa, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia among others to recruit student and attempt to establish exchange programs with local institutions. Ole Miss has direct exchange pro- grams with colleges in England, the Netherlands, Germany, Japan and Russia. " Experience of studying abroad is a profound one. It teach- es self-reliance as well as broadens a persons perspectives of the world ' , ' said All Gleason, a senior who stud- ied American literature in spring at the University of Nottingham, England. " Its and adventure of the discovery of yourself and the world yoiire living; '
