Description

Welcome back to South Carolina and to the Lessons from Abroad returnee conference!

We hope you had a wonderful experience studying and living in another country. How does it feel to be back? We understand, all too well, that coming home may be more difficult than you anticipated. While some students make the transition back with ease, many others find the adjustment upon return to the United States to be a bit trying and confusing.

While it is great to be reunited with loved ones and hang out in all the old, comfortable places, you may still feel a little disoriented and miss many aspects of your time abroad. It could be that you are finding your friends and family cannot relate to your experience abroad, or perhaps it is difficult to be back in an American classroom. No doubt your usual routine may seem a tad boring after the excitement and novelty of Madrid, Hyderabad, Cape Town, or Buenos Aires. We are here to assure you these feelings are quite normal.

Re-entering your home culture can be just as difficult as adjusting to your host culture. For some students it may be even more challenging. The Lessons From Abroad conference will provide you with tips and tools designed to facilitate the most common stages of reverse culture shock and guide you towards ways to apply and utilize your abroad experience in future endeavors. We hope that after the Lessons From Abroad conference you will be equipped with new ideas and resources for how to continue pursuing your own passions as a global citizen!
