While Abroad

Are you worried about feeling homesick or experiencing culture shock? Many students who go abroad can have similar thoughts. Put your mind at ease by reading stories from fellow students on how they deal with being so far from home

Here is one specifically about culture shock in Sweden, and another about dealing with culture shock in Spain.

Proposals due: September 6th
Final Posters due: September 19th

Are you conducting research or completing a project for your Learning Abroad program this year? Would you like to share your results with the University community once you return home this fall?

Good news: Each fall, Learning Abroad hosts a research exhibit at the Global U Expo that showcases student-made posters that summarize the wonderful research and projects that you and other students completed during your Learning Abroad programs. We are currently accepting student proposals for the research posters that we’ll showcase at our research exhibit this fall. This year, the Global U Expo and corresponding research exhibit will take place on September 20th from 11 AM-2 PM.

For those of you who would like to submit a poster, Learning Abroad will purchase the poster for the first four students who apply to present at the research exhibit. If you or a student you know is planning to present about your Learning Abroad research or project at another conference or for a class this coming year, this is a great opportunity to get your poster paid for!

LA newsletter 2017 integrateMake the best of your Learning Abroad experience!

Several students had the opportunity to teach English in a local Spanish school! Here is what he had to say about his experience:

“Teaching these students from the Basque Country was truly an awesome experience! My first day in class I was greeted with smiles, shy “hellos”, and laughter! The class went so smoothly and they were so interested in hearing about the United States. I felt like a superstar in the classroom, and I think the best moment was when the kids came up to me with paper and pen and asked for my autograph. So cool that I made a small impact on their lives! “
