Welcome Home, Returned Students!

Congratulations on completing your study abroad!

We hope you had a meaningful learning abroad experience and look forward to welcoming you back to Salt Lake City and back to campus. Though you are back from your Learning Abroad program, the journey is far from over! Returning home can be both an exciting and challenging experience, and Learning Abroad is here to help you re-adjust to life on campus and in the city.

We encourage you to remain active in the global community and to share your experience with other returned students and future students. The University of Utah and international organizations in Salt Lake City offer numerous opportunities for returned students. Below are examples of how you can integrate your learning abroad experience into your life in Salt Lake! Also, don't forget to attend our Returned Student Social! This is an opportunity to share your experiences with other returned students and learn ways to incorporate your time abroad into your resume or a job interview.

Welcome home 101
We have outlined these opportunities (and more) and hope these resources will help in the journey of re-adapting to life in the United States, keeping involved internationally, and in integrating your learning abroad experience into your life professionally and academically. 

If you still have a few years before graduation, consider a second study abroad program to further boost your resume and develop your international skills. Maybe you just returned from a summer program and now are interested in a semester or a full-year program.  Stop by Learning Abroad and speak with a peer advisor to start planning your next experience!
