    On-Campus Resources

    Student Groups

    Student Groups can be a great resource to connect with peers that have similar interests of you that you may have gained while studying abroad. Numerous organizations connect with different cultures or topics that you have been in contact with when you were abroad. There are also groups that can help guide you through the process and any issues that may come up with reentry including your overall wellbeing.

    Academics- Classes

    Classes can be an important way students can gain insights and connect their experiences from abroad. Classes can help you process an issue that you experienced first-hand, give you to the tools to process your experience, and learn something new about something you were involved in abroad. Wesleyan offers an array of courses that touch upon a lot of important topics. Take your time while looking at classes you want to take.           

    Peers

    Even though every student’s experience is different, other students who studied abroad went or are going through the process you are now. Talking it through with others who understand and are going through something similar can be extremely helpful. Click "Peers" above to view students who have previously studied abroad. If you know anyone who studied abroad, reach out to them. Go to events that the Center for Global Studies puts on for returned students.

    Class Deans

    Class Deans are also there for support for academic advising or guidance with undertaking different type of issues.
