Along with this mandatory session, you must submit a preliminary study away application form by Dec. 1, which will be accessible on the Student Portal starting mid-November. Before the application deadline, students are also asked to complete mandatory individual meetings with an advisor in the Office of Global Education. Keep in mind that all those interested should also declare a capstone major before the application deadline. Come to one of the following required group sessions in A3-001 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 1, in A3-005 from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Oct. 1, and in A3-002 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. on Oct. 2.
Brexit in Historical Perspective
It has been over three years since the referendum for Brexit took place. Once Britain officially leaves the European Union, the secession will result in profound economic and social ripples across not only Britain and Europe, but also around the world. If you are interested in discussing the social and economic consequences of Brexit, come join the Brexit in Historical Perspective talks given by Kevin O’Rourke, professor of Economics at NYUAD and author of “A Short History of Brexit: From Brentry to Backstop.” The talks will discuss what happened over the course of the past three years, as well as how the intricately woven history of Britain, Ireland and Europe resulted in this crisis. Come to the A6 Conference Center on Monday, Sep. 30, at 6.30 p.m. to discuss this historic event.
The Falcon Feast
Are you interested in sports and the Intercollegiate and Club Sports athletes? Would you like to get to know different coaches and team captains? The Athletics Department has organized an event to do precisely that. Come bond over a meal with coaches and student athletes, followed by their short speeches welcoming athletes and highlighting expectations for the next season. Whether you are a student athlete or just interested in sports events, come celebrate at the Falcon Feast from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 30 in Al-Diwan.
