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, September 22, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in front of our University Student Union.
As a campus, last year marked 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 $125, plus $15 for each additional representative (including lunch), made payable by check or money order to California State University San Marcos by September 5, 2016.
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 September 5th deadline are deemed late and subject to a $15 late fee. No registrations will be accepted after September 15. Space is limited and first come, first served.
September tends to be warm in North San Diego, we have absolutely gorgeous temperatures in the 70s - 80s 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:
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!
For questions about the fair please contact Ms. Isabel Martorell at firstname.lastname@example.org
