Welcome Back! Returning from Off-Campus Study

Welcome back!

We hope you've had a rewarding and positive experience studying and living off campus. 

For many returning students, the return "home" is the most challenging part of studying off campus. While you might expect to feel culture shock when you go to a different culture, you don't expect to feel it when you return home or to campus. But you've been changed by the experience and you look at things differently. We hope that the materials in this section will help you think through this phase of cultural adaptation and will encourage you to reflect on your learning and the impact you experiences will have on you now that you are back on campus. The CIIS staff is here to help you with this adjustment.
