Study Abroad

While we love it in Southern Illinois, it's understandable if you want to spread your wings a little bit. If so, you're in luck. SIU offers a number of opportunities for students to continue their studies while seeing the world.

Summer in Carbondale

Have we mentioned how great the city is during the summer? Many students leave, but Carbondale kicks into gear. From music to outdoor movies to festivals and much more, the entire region comes alive.  

Summer Camps

Children and high school students can enjoy the campus experience with academic, artistic and athletic camps and youth programs, ranging from LEGO engineering to drawing and painting to sports and dance.
