Seventh Annual

**The 2013 MN Study Abroad Returnee Conference has been cancelled.**

Are you returning from an abroad experience?

Then you are invited to attend the annual Minnesota Study Abroad Returnee Conference. Held each fall, this conference is a partnership of more than a dozen institutions from across the state of Minnesota. The conference is designed to fit the unique needs of recent study abroad returnees.

Join more than one-hundred students from around the state who have spent part of their academic career abroad. Each year, conference activities are planned to help bring your study abroad experience full circle. At this conference, you can share your stories from abroad; discuss how to transition back to student life in Minnesota; attend sessions on international careers, volunteering locally and internationally, teaching and working abroad, telling your story using technology, or learn about graduate school options here and abroad.
