Welcome Back Group for Study Abroad Returnees
For all students who went abroad during the 2013-2014 school year. You may be experiencing what is known as "re-entry." Coming home from study abroad can be a challenging and difficult time, and it can also be the time when you learn the most from your cross-cultural experience. As you re-adjust to the culture of the United States and to the culture of FIT, it may be helpful to know a little more about what your are going through and some positive ways of dealing with it. This is also a chance to reconnect with old classmates and to share experiences of your time away.
