From Oz to Abroad: Overcoming the F’s of Study Abroad by Awa Dembele, Fadi Gaye. There are certain obstacles that often stop students from considering study abroad. These barriers are often referred to as the Four F’s, a term coined by Dr. Margery Ganz from Spelman College. These 4 F’s are: Friends, Family, Fears, and Funds. For this presentation, we have added two more F’s to the mix: Fit and Faculty. In this presentation two study abroad alumni, Awa Dembele and Fadi Gaye, will expand upon their own experiences with each of these F’s to share how they were challenged by these obstacles, as well as how they overcame them. The presenters will also share how their experiences abroad impacted their lives overall, including the impact on their academics and career paths. ( ,,,, )
