We hope you’re excited to stay engaged with IFSA after your study abroad experience. Whether you’re interested in unpacking your time abroad, exploring new international opportunities, or encouraging others to have an international experience of their own, you’ll find many ways to do that right here.
It is common to experience an unexpected cultural transition and a mix of emotions surrounding your return to the U.S. or your home campus. It is completely normal to find yourself wishing you were still abroad or missing the friends, family, adventure and lifestyle you left behind. Sometimes coming home isn’t as easy as it sounds!
Journal, blog or reflect on your experience abroad and how you feel upon return
Connect with other students returning from study abroad to share your experiences
Engage with IFSA as an alumni blogger or Global Ambassador
Volunteer or work with the study abroad office on your home campus
