A highly encouraged college
experience at most institutions is study abroad. Universities
dedicate significant resources to helping students find programs
that fit their educational needs.
Enthusiasm for international studies is high and millions of dollars
are spent every year by students looking to find their own enriching experience.
Studying abroad requires students to undergo massive transitions.
One of the most easily disregarded transitions is re-adjusting to home.
Included in this site are typical factors that contribute to re-entry

Returning home after dedicating months to becoming a part of another
culture is difficult. On this site you also have the opportunity to read
some personal stories of students who not only had the courage and strength
to go abroad, but more impressively, had the strength to return home.
