Students display their research during a 2012 exposition at Roanoke College.

Interested in study abroad, service learning, student research or internships? Come to a place where you can learn more about these experiences.

This week, Roanoke College’s Office of Student/Faculty Research is hosting its annual Week of Experiential Learning at Fintel Library.

Each night a speaker who is either a Roanoke professor or a graduate, as well as students from a variety of disciplines, will discuss their learning experiences, including study abroad and May travel on Tuesday, service learning on Wednesday and internships on Thursday. On Friday, students will present research and artwork.

Each night starts off with a 6 p.m. social time that includes drinks and food. The speakers are up at 6:30 p.m., and afterwards until 9 p.m., students are available to talk about their experiences.

The speakers include Dr. Paul Hanstedt, an English professor at Roanoke and author of “Hong Konged” on Tuesday; Nathan Proutey, a Roanoke graduate and peace builders coordinator for the West End Center for Youth in Roanoke on Wednesday; and Brittany Beheler, Roanoke alumna and corporate recruiter for Advance Auto Parts on Thursday.

Understandably, schedules are hectic at the end of the semester, but students are strongly encouraged to attend. All events are free and open to the public.

As an incentive, there will be a drawing for Amazon gift cards each night. Also, students who attend at least three of the four nights will be entered into a drawing to win an iPad Mini.
