Return from Abroad Retreats
Spring 2013 Return from Study Abroad Retreat
Friday afternoon, January 25th, through Sunday morning, January 27th, at the Oregon coast.
We will leave for Lincoln City at 4pm on Friday and return by 1pm on Sunday. The retreat is FREE for students, but we ask that you bring a $30 deposit to secure your place for the retreat. The deposit will be returned to you upon completion of the retreat.
Coming home from an off-campus study program or doing research in another country often means getting back into the swing of things. Adjustments to lifestyle, return to academic rigor and change in many ways large and small can be challenging. The Career Center is on campus to help WU students through transitions like this - to help them make meaning of their experiences, to help them place their abroad experiences in the context of their lives and learn what they have to teach each student about him/herself.
The goal of this retreat is 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 can help each other reflect on and process their experience and what it means for each of them. (The off-campus study/research program does not have to be one sponsored by WU.)
