Every student who participates in an international program should meet with the Study Abroad advisor upon returning. You can discuss your academic experience abroad, pending transfer credits, readjustment to Lang and the United States, and any other concerns.
Many students return to the United States with more of a global perspective and a thirst for international education, but you might also experience some reverse culture shock. This might include
- unexpected emotional highs and lows
- feelings of unsettlement and frustration with your culture
- questioning your core values and beliefs
You don’t have to feel alone in processing your feelings. Support is always available from your advisors.
