Returnee Resources

When students return from studying abroad, they sometimes have a second period of culture shock (commonly called “Reverse Culture Shock”) as they adapt to being back in their home country. Fortunately, study abroad students have adjusted to a different culture once, and with a little support, they can pull strategies and coping mechanisms from their first culture shock experience to better navigate this second culture shock experience.

Below are many resources that can help students:
