Returning home is often both an exciting and difficult experience. SLU’s study abroad team is here to help you readjust to life back in the United States as returning global citizens. And we truly value the global experiences and perspectives that you bring back to campus.
Annual International Photo Contest
The contest is open to both SLU students who studied abroad and international students studying at SLU. Display your creativity by submitting unique photographs of the places you visited during the year.
Welcome Home Reception
All returning study abroad students are invited to celebrate their global experiences during a welcome home reception. Mingle with other returning study abroad students, enjoy your favorite St. Louis treats, and explore the opportunities to remain active in the SLU global community and to help acclimate back to life on campus in St. Louis.
Upcoming reception: 4 p.m., August 25, 2016, in the Center for Global Citizenship
Peer Mentor Program
Volunteer with the Study Abroad Office by becoming a peer mentor. You’ll be a valuable resource for other Billikens by volunteering during study abroad events, mentoring potential study abroad students and promoting the study abroad experience on campus. The requested time commitment is about two hours per week.
Successful applicants will be chosen for an interview process.
SLU is recruiting for peer mentors who have had international experiences in Asia, Europe and Latin America.
International Ambassador Program
The international ambassador program helps international students feel at home at SLU. Current students, many of whom have studied abroad and can empathize with how international students studying in St. Louis might feel, serve as mentors during International Student Orientation and at events throughout the year.
Post Study Abroad Opportunities
From joining the Peace Corps to being awarded a Fulbright Scholarship, there are countless organizations around the world looking for someone like you who wants to work with people different from yourself.
