Returning to KU
We hope you have a great experience on your study abroad program and the Office of Study Abroad would love to have your continued support upon your return. There are a number of ways you can support the Office of Study Abroad:
1. Complete the Study Abroad Evaluation
The Study Abroad program evaluation will be a questionnaire on your online study abroad application. Once your program has completed, we would really appreciate it if you could take a few moments to log on to your JayhawksAbroad Account and complete the online program evaluation. Candid responses from program alumni are essential for us to review existing programs and develop new study abroad opportunities. Student evaluations are also very helpful in advising future students interested in these programs.
2. Share Your Experience
There are a number of opportunities to share your experience with students who are interested in study abroad. If you would like to participate in any of the following ways, simply contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
- Be a returnee contact! Log on to your JayhawksAbroad online account and click the "Manage your Alumni Information" link (Please note: this link will not be available until 7 days after your program end date). In the "Manage your Alumni Information" section, you will be able to choose to be a contact for prospective students to the program. If you choose to be a contact, students will be able to contact you via email.
- Volunteer at our Study Abroad Fair or Study Abroad Orientation. This is a great way to share your wisdom with students about your program.
- Become a Jayhawk Exchange Friend. To learn more about the program, read our Jayhawk Exchange Friend Information (pdf). To become involved contact the Office of Study Abroad Exchange Student Coordinator at email@example.com.
