“Panther Alumni Week (PAW) connects students with alumni through class presentations, industry panels and networking events. PAW promotes the building of relationships, which leads to networking, internships, mentoring and career opportunities.
We’re proud to celebrate the sixth anniversary of PAW! With your involvement, we can make PAW bigger and better than ever.
Each year, we invite alumni to campus to engage with our students on campus by offering real world insight and valuable career advice.
PAW is scheduled for the week of February 4-8, 2019 and will take place on campus and online.”
Please join Professor John William Bailly and FIU Honors students currently enrolled in Poetry Art Community (PAC), Art Society Conflict (ASC), and the Honors Italy, Spain, France 2019 programs for a PAW potluck to share stories from previous trips and years, along with giving advice to future students.
All FIU Honors College graduates are invited to come back to campus and speak to the students. If you are an alumni of either Poetry Art Community, Art Society Conflict (previously known as Aesthetics & Values (A&V)), or the Honors Italy, Spain, France courses, please email Professor Bailly in order to confirm your attendance.
If you have not graduated but have completed any of the courses or the three study abroad programs, please feel free to join us. Professor Bailly can’t register you as an official PAW guest with FIU, but we’d love to have you come and share stories, advice, and eat with us.

Join us for the last Europe Study Abroad info session before registration closes for Summer 2018. Professor John William Bailly will provide information on Spain, France, & Italy. After a brief overview of each program, he and program alumni will be available for a question and answer session.
Students are also welcome to “shop” the programs by visiting on the first day of classes. Questions to email@example.com Find out more about our programs here:
In an effort to make study abroad programs more accessible to students, the FIU Honors College has recently changed its policy regarding administrative fees. In the past, students had to pay a $250 fee per program, now, the Honors College will wave that fee for any student taking two programs in one summer.
For example, if a student is participating in Spain in June 2018 and France in July 2018, that student will only be required to pay one fee of $250. Previously, the student would have had to pay $500.
Another cost-saving advantage of completing two programs in one summer is that the student will only need to purchase one plane ticket to Europe.
Lastly—and this is especially important for out-of-state and international students—one little-known advantage of FIU study abroad is that all students pay in state tuition, which makes studying abroad a more affordable option for certain students.

What do FIU students do in France? How long are they there for? How do they get there? Is French food really that good? This panel discussion will focus on FIU students experiences in France. The students speak about their perception prior to the trip and the reality they encountered while in France. The students visited Paris, Lyon, Strasbourg, Normandy, and the Alps.
