Welcome Back

The Office of Study Abroad welcomes you back to the United States and to campus. You will want to tell people all about your experiences, and we want to help you do that! Please contact us if you are interested in being a student worker in our office (we have a limited number of paid positions), volunteering at events or to be a contact for students interested in going on your program or to the region where you studied. We will also reach out when we have specific activities, such as pre-departure orientation, where we could use your perspectives.


Returning to life here at Wes can be more of a culture shock than you had when you went abroad. Please be aware that many, many students have experienced this, and there is help available. Our staff are happy to discuss this with you; please make an appointment so that you don't have to deal with all the prospective students during drop-in hours. If you are finding it especially difficult, we may refer you to CAPS. CAPS has been helping Wesleyan students with this transition for a number of years. You are not alone!
