Event description
LFA-Oregon is the premier event for study abroad returnees to connect, learn how to maximize skills gained abroad and discuss "what's next?"

About this Event

Lessons From Abroad is a dynamic development event for students who have studied, interned, or volunteered abroad.

Participants will:

  • Discover an international community of peers in the Pacific northwest
  • Learn to build linkages between skills gained abroad with professional and personal goals
  • Explore new opportunities to go abroad again

Professionals are set to host interactive sessions, including:

  • How to articulate your time abroad in your resume and job interviews
  • Making the most of your global job search
  • Telling your story through photojournalism
  • Exploring which careers will take you overseas
  • How to keep language skills sharp after you return to the US
  • What you need to know to teach abroad

Student Tickets

Tickets include lunch. Student tickets cost $15. Students who submit an entry to the LFA Oregon Photo Contest on our Facebook page receive 50% off the price of admission.

Group discounts are available: groups of five student attendees can be registered for the price of four.


  • What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event


Parking is extremely limited around the Portland Linfield campus. We recommend using Portland's mass transit, TriMet, instead of driving. Only a handful of Linfield parking spots are available in the area, including some in a private lot on 22nd and Overton (first come, first serve).

Metered street parking is also available, and you can download the Parking Kitty app on your mobile device to feed the meter during the event.

Transportation to Portland: TriMet, Amtrak (train), Bolt Bus and Greyhound are available to reach Portland. Additionally, some campuses will arrange vans to bring students from throughout the valley. Please contact the study abroad office at your home university if you are looking for a van. Students are encouraged to discuss carpooling via the the LFA Oregon Facebook page or LFA Oregon Instagram page.

  • How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please email oregon@lessonsfromabroad.org with questions.

  • What's the refund policy?

We are not able to refund registration fees unless the event is cancelled.

  • Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You do not need to bring a printed ticket to the event. We will have a registration list.

  • Is my registration fee or ticket transferable?

We ask that those who register are those who attend. If you have questions please contact oregon@lessonsfromabroad.org
