On Monday, students and alumnae will discuss their study abroad experiences during the “GO AWAY” panel, which takes place at noon in Josey Dining Room. “Study Abroad Speed Dating” on Tuesday – same time and location – will give interested students the chance to talk directly with current students who have studied in foreign countries. An international internship session follows at 4 p.m. in the career services library. Sweet Briar’s steel drum orchestra Skiffle USA will round out the day during dinner in Prothro.

Other events include a Korean art film screening of Kim Kidok’s “Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring 2003” at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Tyson Auditorium and a movie night featuring “Mulan” and “Painted Skin” starting at 7 p.m. Thursday in the 1948 Theater.
