Study Abroad Welcome Back Dinner

The Office of Study Away will be hosting a Welcome Back Dinner for all students who studied abroad this fall.

The theme will be Taco Tuesday so come hungry! This will be a great opportunity to catch up with fellow students who studied abroad elsewhere, share your experiences, reflect on what you accomplished overseas and how you can continue achieving any goals back here on campus. Plus, it will be when and where we announce winners of the study abroad photo contest (see below for more details).

It will run from 6:30-8:00 so that students who have class can arrive late/leavr early if needed. This will be a casual event and food and drink will be provided. (Please RSVP here by January 16th so that we know how much food to order!)

*This event is for students who studied abroad for a full semester or year and are returning from being abroad in Fall 2018.
