Welcome back! We hope you had a wonderful experience abroad!
A lot of time is spent encouraging students going abroad to prepare for the experience. Study abroad research has shown that coming home can be more unsettling than going abroad was! You may find that you have changed a great deal, but everything and everyone at home seems the same.
Now that you're back at UW-Eau Claire, there are many ways for you to keep your international experience alive. Get involved! Local and international activities can help you adjust to being back, as well as help you integrate your study abroad experience into your academic life and long-term goals.
There are many useful resources available on our site. We have also put together a comprehensive Returnee Guide for your convenience.
