Study Abroad

For Alumni

Welcome back Study Abroad Alumni

The Office of International Programs welcomes you back from study abroad! We hope that your time overseas enabled you to grow personally and intellectually, develop new friendships, learn about another culture, discover new interests and travel to other countries. We encourage you to think of your study abroad experience as the beginning of a life-long global journey. However, you will also need to think about your return to Ithaca College. The resources on this page were designed to help you face the academic and non-academic issues that often accompany the process of readjusting to life at IC.

Study Abroad Ambassador program

We hope that your study abroad experience has inspired you to encourage other IC students to go abroad! If you would like an opportunity to share your overseas experiences and stories with other students, you should become a Study Abroad Ambassador. The Ambassadors are returned study abroad students who are involved in helping with peer advising, study abroad information sessions, orientations and other events that promote study abroad on campus. Serving as an ambassador requires only a minimal time commitment, but it will allow you to talk about your experiences with an interested audience and meet others who have studied abroad. If you are interested in becoming a Study Abroad Ambassador, please complete the Ambassador application and return to the Office of International Programs.
