How International Experience Can Strengthen Your College Application


Monday December 9, 2019: 7:00pm to 8:30pm


Westgate Branch: West Side Room


Incorporating an international experience into your college application can be a valuable asset and distinguish you from other competitive applicants. 

Study abroad can be a transformational experience and has proven to build cultural competence, language skills, confidence, maturity, problem solving abilities and inspire an authentic global perspective. Simply ‘doing’ a study abroad program is not the goal. Incorporating what you have learned abroad to contribute to your local community is where true benefits emerge.

 Presenters include:

  • Heidi Bohn from Global Leadership Adventures, a study abroad provider offering leadership development opportunities around the globe for high school students.
  • John Boshoven, Coordinator of College Counseling for AAPS, Counselor Emeritus at Community High School/Ann Arbor and Independent College Counselor
  • Andrew Grayson, Senior Associate Directior of Admission, Kalamazoo College
  • Jennifer Nemecek, International Education Partnership Coordinator for AAPS

A comprehensive website of resources to begin your exploration of opportunities available will also be shared.
