Every student who participates in an international program should meet with a 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 a more global perspective and a thirst for international education, but some experience reverse culture shock. This might include
- Unexpected emotional highs and lows
- Feelings of disorientation and frustration with one's culture
- Doubts about core values and beliefs
You don’t have to process your feelings alone. Support is always available from your advisors.
