Study Abroad Information Session: 

Thinking you may want to study abroad? Have questions about classes, the application, or financial aid? Want to pick the brains of returned abroad students or the International Programs coordinator? Then please join us! Students at any phase of their planning process should feel free to attend, even if you aren’t sure if you want to study abroad. Come explore the options and opportunities! 



Study Abroad Fair: 

Date: To be decided

Representatives from Hollins Abroad, Arcadia, Spanish Studies Abroad, and the School for Field Studies will be available to meet with you and answer questions. Please stop by on your way to lunch!    

Program Orientation (London and Affiliates):

Program orientations are more specific and are tailored to your study abroad site. They will support you as you deal with more site specific issues, for example: applying for a visa, and offer you a smaller venue in which to ask questions.  The program orientations also cover general issues, such as: 

  • cultural adjustment 
  • health and safety
  • travel while abroad 
  • money and expenses
  • course approvals
  • registration
  • housing for when you return to the Roanoke campus
Students attending affiliate programs will also need to keep in touch with their study abroad provider to keep up with additional details. 

Additionally, please be sure to read the pre-departure guide for your program. They will be available to you in StudioAbroad and also under the After Acceptance tab.

On-site Orientation 

Hollins Abroad London conducts an on-site orientation after students arrive. Details are provided during the individual program sessions on the Roanoke campus and in the pre-departure guides.

Most affiliated programs conduct on-site orientations. Information will be provided by the specific provider.


Please contact us in the Office of International Programs at  if you have any questions. 

[Dates for these events will be posted here and on my.hollins, as soon as they are available.]
