North Central College - Naperville, IL

Returning Students

Welcome Home


Welcome home! We hope you had great experiences abroad! Whether you studied abroad for a term, multiple terms, or a full academic year, study abroad has changed your life in positive way. The experiences and memories gained from completing academic course work, traveling, and exploring abroad have made an impact on all aspects of your life:  academic, personal, and professional.

As a "returnee", we hope you continue to stay involved with international opportunities here on campus. As a returnee you have the privilege of serving as the study abroad student voice on campus by applying to our Ambassador program, submiting entries into the video and photo contest, serving as a mentor for future students studying on your programs, and participating in International Club and activities. Perhaps, participating in another study abroad program, d-term course abroad, completing a Richter, or applying for a Fulbright is in your near future. No matter what direction you are headed in, we hope you have a smooth transition back to North Central College and the States. As always, please contact the Office of International Programs or a study abroad advisor with any questions regarding your transition home, future international experiences or to get involved.

We are glad you're home!
