Returning from Off-Campus Study
Program EvaluationsPlease be aware students are expected to complete and submit the Grinnell Off-Campus Study Program Evaluation after their program ends. An email will be sent with a link to it. Your feedback is valuable to our office and other students and we appreciate your assistance.
Re-EntryYou might find re-adjusting to campus or home more difficult than your semester off-campus. However, re-entry is different for everyone. It is a time of personal growth and change. Some students find their relationships with family and friends have changed. We encourage you to reflect and recognize - and celebrate - your new knowledge and skills. Below are a list of resources for you to explore:
- The 6 Stages You Go Through After Returning From Study Abroad
- 10 Tips for When You're Feeling Depressed After Studying Abroad discusses the distinction between reverse culture shock and depression. Reach out to SHAW if you feel you need help coping.
- Middlebury College has an excellent list of re-entry resources.
