Weekly Newsletter

Welcome Back to Campus! 

With the first week of classes under our belt, the staff at the Office of Study Abroad is ecstatic to be back on campus. Not only are we reuniting with returning study abroad students, we are welcoming new international students to Tulane. The Office of Study Abroad and the Office of International Students and Scholars has been busy at work planning the Global Café Kick-Off event to celebrate and reunite the global community on campus.

International Networking & Welcome Party

This Monday, January 23rd come join other intentionally-minded Tulane students for an afternoon of networking, culture, and FREE food! Prospective, returning, and international study abroad students will engage in networking, storytelling, and socializing in the LBC Peterson Lobby from 3-to 6 PM. What should you expect?

Networking 3-4 PM

Meet with representatives from Peace Corps, Tulane Career Center, Tulane Success Center, and Tulane Honors Program to collect information about nationally competitive scholarships and post-graduate career opportunities abroad. Staff members will be instructing how to best present your study abroad experience on your resume.

Student Pecha Kucha Presentations 4-5 PM

Returning study abroad students will share their abroad experiences through the Pecha Kucha-style panel. These students are excited to present what they learned during the semester over seas and how their abroad experience ties into their larger Tulane education.

Socializing 5-6 PM

It wouldn't be a welcome back party with free food and music! Join us in meeting new faces over king cake and international tunes. Whether you are still deciding where to study abroad or you want to celebrate the experience you just had, stay and hang out with Tulane's very own global community. You can even still submit song suggestions for the party!

Check out our Facebook event for more details. Hope to see you there!
