Javelina Nation celebrated Holi on March 21. This beautiful festival of colors celebrates the beginning of spring and the power of love.
The 10th Annual Ag Olympics were held on Wednesday, March 22, at the Texas A&M-Kingsville Roping Arena. Several teams participated in the festivities and weren’t afraid to get their boots muddy throughout the extremely physical array of events.
TAMUK Trumpets making sure they sound pitch perfect! The ensemble has been invited to Hershey, Pennsylvania for an International Showcase Recital.
Interested in studying abroad? Nicolette Dacke, Program Coordinator in the Office of International Studies & Programs gives insight on why you should consider it.
Why Study Abroad? - “Students can study abroad through many different programs offered through the Office of International Studies and Programs including the Faculty-Led and Individual Exchange. With Faculty-Led programs, students travel in a group with their professor for typically two, three or four weeks. Many times, these programs also include a Service Learning component, which can allow them to gain real world experience to boost their resumes. For the Individual Exchange programs, students can select a host institute from our partnered international universities to attend and receive college credit that is transferable to their current degree plan with Texas A&M-Kingsville. During that time, they’ll expand their cultural immersion by experiencing living abroad for that semester. Both options are a great way for Texas A&M-Kingsville students to have an experience of a lifetime that’s more than just a vacation.”
How to pay for it? – “When students decide to study abroad, there are two components to the overall costs. With the Faculty-Led program, students register through their Blue & Gold for the actual credited course and also for the program. Once they register, charges will hit their student accounts that include the tuition and fee associated with the credited course as well as the cost for the program. Program costs include roundtrip air, lodging, international travel insurance, group transportation, group excursions and some meals. There are many options for students when wanting to pay for their study abroad programs and the tuition/fees associated with the course. Financial Aid and Veterans Benefits are available for qualifying A&M-Kingsville students to assist in paying the tuition and fees costs. For the program costs, students can apply for our in-house “Study Abroad Scholarship” as well as other outside scholarships like the “Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship” International Scholarship”, “IFSA Butler College Study Abroad Programs” or the “AIFS Study Abroad Scholarships and Grants” to name a few. Payment plans are also available for tuition and fees through the Business Office and through the Office of International Studies and Programs for the program cost.”
