Returning Home

Cultural REadjustment

Expect a difference in your student after returning from a term abroad. Some of the eye-opening experiences they had while abroad may have influenced your student. Your student may return with a different perspective, new interests, and new goals. They may also experience reverse culture shock, where they compare the U.S. to their education abroad destination. Allow these comparisons to assist your student in going through this readjustment. They will need your support, your genuine interest, and your understanding.
