Orientation and Re-Entry

Pre-departure and Re-entry Orientation

The Intercultural Office coordinates both pre-departure and re-entry orientation for students participating in semester-long and short-term, off-campus programs. These are mandatory. The sessions are designed to prepare students for a successful semester off campus and to assist with transition back to the US and to campus.

The pre-departure sessions for semester-long programs include:

  • Logistics of Off-Campus Study
  • Cross-Cultural Adjustment & Communication
  • Growing Globally: Spiritual, Professional and Personal Development
  • Health and Safety in an International Environment
  • S.A.F.E.: Self-Defense Awareness and Familiarization Exchange (women) or Abroad Safety Program (men)

 

The pre-departure sessions for short-term, cross-cultural and discipline-specific courses include:

  • Cross-Cultural Adjustment & Communication
  • Health and Safety in an International Environment

 

The re-entry retreat for all students studying off campus is designed for students returning to campus.
