Lessons from Abroad Conference


Lessons from Abroad is a one-day conference, held during the fall, for students who have recently returned home from a study abroad experience and are looking to:

  • Meet other recent study abroad returnees
  • Hear from dynamic and motivating speakers about their experiences abroad
  • Learn how to talk about your global skills in a job interview
  • Connect with professionals working in internationally-focused jobs.

Find recordings from the 2020 virtual conference here.

Welcome Back Reception

The Welcome Back Reception happens during the fall quarter.  Our next reception is being planned for Fall 2022. Study abroad returnees will receive an email from IEO with more information.

This is an opportunity for you to connect with others who studied abroad, hear from some of our campus colleagues and/or study abroad alumni,  learn more about future opportunities abroad, and of course, enjoy some great food.
