RETURNING STUDENTS INFORMATION
Coming back home after living abroad can present its own new set of challenges and opportunities. The Global Exchanges team is here to help you transition back to life in the US and Tallahassee. A Welcome Back event will be held for all returning students to discuss and process what is commonly experienced when coming back from abroad. We also provide a detailed "unpacking" guide to give resources and information.
