Since returning to campus after a study abroad experience can be a difficult adjustment, this organization was started by study abroad returnees to improve that adjustment and make it a smoother process. We felt that students who return from a study abroad experience need some type of additional support upon coming back to campus.
DU-IT became an official student organization during the fall 2008 semester. So far some of the events we have held include ethnic dinners, a welcome back party for study abroad returnees and an evening of sharing pictures and stories from study abroad experiences. Members of the organization have also helped prospective study abroad students and the study abroad with study abroad pre-departure and re-entry sessions. We encourage you to join this organization to share your experiences, learn about others’ experiences and pass on your knowledge to prospective study abroad students.
Feel free to email email@example.com, or contact the current president, Maggie Matz at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also keep in mind that since this is a new organization, there will be a lot of leadership opportunities available.
