Does anyone know if attending the study abroad fair counted as a culture point?

I forgot to ask about this, but I went to the study abroad fair on the 16th, and since ProFair counted as a culture point, I was thinking maybe the study abroad fair also counts? Does anyone know?

I do not believe that the study away fair counted as culture points sadly. I wish it had.

Who knows though you could ask Professor Stonedahl he might still give it to you especially if you know of 5ish people from class that went

Sorry, no.  At ProFair the goal was to talk to some people at companies who do *real-world software development*, which made it relevant to computer science.

I think that study abroad is wonderful (and have fond memories of my own foreign study in Budapest), but I don't think the Study Abroad fair was relevant enough to computer science to count for culture points.

IF you had advertised it to the class 12 hours in advance, and gotten 4 classmates to go with you, then it could have counted as a group activity... but even if 5 people attended from the class, the fact that it wasn't pre-advertised would disqualify it...

Hope that helps clarify...
