Major: Business Administration
Concentration: Information Systems

Study Abroad Program: Cal Poly Global Program in Thailand, Summer 2017
Fall Quarter 2018 Advising Hours: Tu: 2-4, W: 10-11, Th: 2-4

Hello! My name is Kevin Flood and I am a fourth year Business Administration major with a concentration in Information Systems. If I had to pin point one experience that transcended my college experience it would have to be my Summer 2017 study abroad in Chiang Mai, Thailand and Siem Reap, Cambodia. I’m a true So-Cal kid at heart and love hammocking at the beach. I play folk rock guitar and enjoy exploring new territories of music. As a fourth year at Cal Poly with my experiences and relationships in my pocket, I want to make it my mission to give back before I graduate. I implore you to take the leap of faith to study abroad, but I’ll help you make it the most well planned and researched leap of faith you’ve every taken!

Kaixo! My name is Jake Zolina and I am a 4th year Recreation, Parks and Tourism Administration student with a emphasis in Event Planning and Management. I think the best part about going abroad is that there is no wrong or right to live out your abroad experience, but more importantly what you learned and the ability to talk to others about your experience. One of my favorite trips from abroad was to Taghazout, Morocco after my program ended. I am truly humbled to be able to help my peers navigate one of the most meaningful quarters of their life. I look forward to meeting with you!
