Amsterdam Information Session

Time: 12:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Location: Bacon Hall 115

In 1995, Buffalo State established a student exchange program with the Amsterdam School of Business, now HES School of Economics and Management at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.

Unhampered by the need for a second language while doing the class work but challenged by the Dutch language outside of the classroom, business and economics students have a unique opportunity to take their required courses in English while enjoying the experience of living in a foreign culture.

Study Abroad Siena Information Night

Time: 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Location: Bulger Communication Center West

Since 1961, Buffalo State has provided the opportunity for study in Siena, one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Italy. Encircled by centuries-old walls, Siena overlooks the Tuscan countryside, the birthplace of the Renaissance.

Students live with a Sienese family, participate actively in the life of the community, and attend small classes taught primarily in English. As part of the program's studies, students will take tours to Florence, Rome, and other Italian cities guided by faculty for firsthand study of original works of art, architecture and Italian culture. You may participate in workshops that enable you to experience aspects of Sienese life normally closed to tourists.
