Welcome back! You probably looked forward to coming home – regardless of how exciting and life-changing your study abroad experience was – and now that you’re here, you may be surprised to find that in some ways it may be more challenging to readjust to life back in the United States than it was to go abroad. These feelings are sometimes described as "reverse culture shock" or "re-entry shock." Learn more.
The College of Global Studies wants to hear from its past and present students! The center is busy building a superb collection of posts, articles, videos, and photographs, describing what an incredible experience study abroad is — entirely written by, and for, students. Learn more.
At the end of your program, The College of Global Studies will send an official Arcadia University transcript to your home school and an unofficial copy to you. Learn more.
