Yet another fair approaches Bear Territory, but rather than giving in to that insatiable desire for study abroad clog picfree stuff, how about actually taking a good look around?

Studying abroad is something nearly every student would want to do (if not, shame on you). However, rumors of students who have been on a study abroad program graduating a year later than usual or getting messed up socially have been a source of concern. There is nothing wrong with studying abroad; it is truly a life changing experience. Sure, going abroad makes your resume a little more pretty but experiencing a brand new culture speaks for itself.

Attending these fairs with the sole purpose of swiping free stuff only helps those bad rumors become reality. Actually going to the fair to obtain important information might be a better alternative. Why not travel to some country on the opposite side of the world and finish some units while you are at it? Double win.

Speaking of important information, check out the UC Berkeley Study Abroad Fair this Friday, Sept. 23 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Student Union. See you there!
