In addition to study abroad, there are festivals, events, volunteer projects and clubs to afford every GPC student a world of opportunities.

To better serve the needs of our students, the Study Abroad Fair has been restructured and renamed "A World of Opportunities". The fair will be open not only to study abroad programs, but also to clubs, events, and organizations that offer opportunities for students to receive an international experience without leaving Atlanta, or even GPC.

Representatives from a variety of programs, schools and departments will be on hand to answer questions about the different opportunities available to you.
