Return from Abroad Retreat
Start Date: 9/25/2015Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 9/27/2015End Time: 1:00 PM

Event Description
Coming home from an off-campus study program or doing research in another country often means struggling to get back into the swing of things. Adjustments to lifestyle, return to academic rigor, and change can be challenging. The (free) Return from Abroad Retreat was established to help WU students through transitions like this - making meaning of their experiences, helping them place their abroad experiences in the context of their lives back home, and helping them learn what they have to teach each student about him/herself.
The goal of this retreat is engaging together with good food, good company, and a relaxing time away from the busy pace of WU life. Willamette students returning from off-campus study/research programs will help each other process and reflect on their abroad experience and what it means for each of them (the off-campus study/research program does not have to be one sponsored by WU).
