When You Return
Upon your return, you will be invited to attend Re-entry, a program designed to help you “unpack” your experiences. You will learn valuable tools for communicating the skills you gained overseas to future employers during your co-op/job search. You will also learn about opportunities to work for our office as a Peer Mentor and see images from the Tiger’s abroad competition. It’s also a great way to share your experiences, your photos and your excitement with each other.
Peer Mentor Program
Peer Mentors are enthusiastic and dedicated students eager to help others considering study abroad. Peer Mentors participate in study abroad events, assist with study abroad marketing and are often available for one-on-one advice. Being a Peer Mentor is a great way to relive your experience by sharing it with others. If you would like to apply to be a Peer Mentor, visit the Become a Peer Mentor page to learn more.
As an alum of RIT and study abroad, you have a unique perspective on the value of international education. We would love to keep in touch with you to hear how your study abroad experience continues to impact your academic and career goals and opportunities. We could also use your help promoting study abroad. Keep in touch by emailing email@example.com.
If you are interested in going overseas again for an extended amount of time to earn a Master’s degree, teach English or conduct research, consider applying for a prestigious fellowship such as the Fulbright, Rhodes or Marshall. Please visit the Fellowships website for more information.
