In addition to the trips administrated by faculties at IU South Bend, there are over 250 overseas study programs, in 52 countries, speaking 17 different languages, administrated by Indiana University on all eight IU campuses. Every year, a study abroad advisor from IU Bloomington visits our campus to promote the oversea programs. This year, Danielle M. Samek, an experienced study abroad advisor working with IUSB students, succeeded in sending few of our fellow students abroad.

Faneromeni, a senior at IUSB, stated in response to her experience working with Danielle Samek, “She is an amazing person to work with! I had the pleasure of working with her and she would respond thoroughly to every question I had about the program. She is extremely helpful and supportive. I don’t think I would have made it if I didn’t have her help, advice and encouragement throughout the entire process”!

Another student, Daniela, said, “Studying abroad is an experience of a lifetime, but you have to be ready for all that studying abroad entails, before and during. Working with the program in Bloomington was a pleasant experience. I would definitely encourage students from IUSB to look at all your possibilities with the IU programs so that you can find a program that fits your ambition”.
