Study Abroad Fair Exhibitor Registration

Welcome Global Partners and Friends,

CSUSM is growing by leaps and bounds so this should make for an exciting Traveling Tukwut Study Abroad Fair on Thursday, October 22 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in front of our University Student Union. We are also very fortunate to grow our team a little over the last three months with a new International Student & Study Abroad Advisor, Ms. Isabel Martorell.  Isabel will be your lead for this year's fair and the world of outside programs and is excited to meet you in the months ahead.

As a campus, this year marks our 25th anniversary and we are certainly starting to feel some "Cougar Pride" among our roughly 14,000 students.  We've recently opened up a whole new wing of student housing, have achieved NCAA standing and will soon break ground on a brand new sports arena, while continuing to expand our academic offerings.   The most popular fields continue to be Business, Communication, Kinesiology, Nursing, Psychology, Human Development and Spanish though we are seeing quite a diversity of majors in our study abroad participants. 

We hope you join us for this year's fair.  Registration is $110, plus $15 for each additional representative (including lunch), made payable by check or money order to California State University San Marcos by October 5, 2015.

Remit payments with indemnification forms and proof of liability insurance to:

        CSUSM--Office of Global Education

        333 S. Twin Oaks Valley Rd.

        San Marcos, CA  92096-0001

Registration costs include advertising, a table, chair, one box lunch, and parking. Registrations received after the October 5th deadline are deemed late and subject to a $15 late fee.  No registrations will be accepted after October 15.  Space is limited and first come, first served.

One can never tell what the weather will be in October in North San Diego, but typically we have absolutely gorgeous temperatures in the 70s with lots of sun.  As a reminder, our campus sits perched on a hill overlooking the city, so we are frequently subject to wind gusts.  All that is to say, wear sunblock, layered clothing, and bring LOTS of paper weights for your materials! 

Be sure to unload your materials in Chavez Circle directly in front of the new Student Union to use the Union's elevator to move to the main event level (4th floor).  You will be parking in the parking structure to the right of the Student Union and could also use the elevator to the fifth floor and cross over the bridge to campus.  You will find a student volunteer or myself at the foot of the stairs at Chavez Circle to direct you.  PLEASE NOTE:  THIS IS A NEW LOCATION FROM PREVIOUS YEARS.

As a reminder, our office can only accommodate a small number of materials (6-10 copies of viewbooks).  Please make plans to take excess materials with you from the fair.  You may ship items beginning two weeks prior to the fair in clearly marked boxes labeled HOLD FOR STUDY ABROAD FAIR/Name of Provider to the following address:

CSUSM--GLOBAL EDUCATION

441 La Moree Road
San Marcos, CA 92078

DO NOT send the articles to my campus address directly or I will have to move each of your boxes myself as in years past.

I look forward to this event every year and to seeing dear colleagues like yourselves with similar hearts for students and international education!  Please let me know if I can offer any additional assistance.  I hope to see you this fall!

Warm Regards,

Tiffany Gabbard, Study Abroad Coordinator
