Education Abroad Workshops Re-entry Orientation Wednesday, January 13, 2016 - 4pm-7pm, MLC 348
For students returning in Spring 2016 from education abroad programs - Please join the Office of International Education for a special workshop about adjusting back to UGA and American life, and share your tales from abroad with us! Many students return to the USA expecting to resume their normal lives prior to studying abroad, only to realize things are now very different. This "reverse culture shock" can manifest in various ways, making adjustment to life at home more of a struggle than one might expect. We'll have a panel of previously returned UGA stu dents answering your questions and discussing their experiences, as well as sharing opportunities for making the most of your international experiences post-study abroad, such as: joining the Education Abroad Ambassadors or the Peace Corps, volunteering at OIE events, marketing your study abroad experience for your future job search, and much more!
