Returning Students

At the Center for International Program, we understand that education abroad can have a profound impact on your educational and personal lives to the point where it may be hard to readjust back to the life you knew before you left. We are committed to assisting returning students in their adjustment back to life at West Chester through our office programming and connecting students to other campus resources.

Welcome Back to WCU meetings

As a new initiative in our office this year to assist returning students, Welcome Back to WCU consists of a group of recently returning study abroad students who meet to discuss their study abroad experience, things they learned about themselves and a new culture, and any challenges they may be facing while re-adjusting. The group meets 1-2 times each semester to provide support for each and every West Chester student that has studied abroad. We want to hear about your experience and how studying abroad positively or negatively impacted your life.

Global Ambassador Program

Every WCU student who participates in an education abroad experience has the opportunity to apply to be a Global Ambassador. The Global Ambassador program is an opportunity for our study abroad alum to engage with the campus community and help promote education abroad across campus by doing a project that helps create awareness of our office. They also work as peer mentors to students who come into the office with questions about going abroad and what to expect. Click here to apply to be a Global Ambassador.
