Reentry Resources - Life at Colby - Colby College, Waterville, ME

While many of us anticipate feeling culture shock when entering a new country/ies for the first time, many of us don’t realize that similar feelings can be felt upon returning home. Reverse culture shock is unexpected. It is important to know that you are not alone in these feelings. Browse through some of the resources below which might help you to understand and cope with those normal feelings.

Also- don’t forget to attend our annual welcome back dinner for students returning from off-campus study, and visit OCS if you’re interested in serving as a Global Ambassador on campus!
