Congratulations on your recent voyage abroad!  Returning from a study abroad experience may have you mixed with emotions, filled with stories to share and thinking about your next steps in life. We hope that you will join the Lessons from Abroad Southwest Returnee Conference to learn about how to make the most of your experience now that you are back! The next conference will take place on Saturday, September 23 at the Arizona State University Downtown Campus in the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications.

Conference highlights include:

  • Meeting other recent study abroad returnees from all over the Southwest
  • Hearing from dynamic and motivating keynote speakers
  • Learning how to talk about your newly acquired global skills in a job interview
  • Discovering how you can work or study abroad after graduation
  • Networking with professionals working in internationally-focused jobs
  • Staying connected to and sharing stories about your study abroad experience

This is a great opportunity to network with other students and professionals.  We ask that you dress business casual and bring several copies of your resume.
