CISabroad Alumni

CISabroad is here to guide you through your transition back to the United States. We have resources to help you study abroad again, find a job overseas and incorporate your study abroad experience into resumes, cover letters and interviews.

Share Your Story

Welcome back home to where it all started. Eager to share your stories from abroad? We imagine you’ve made new friends, found new foods to eat and different ways of living. You are an inspiration to us and future students! We’d like to keep you connected to your experience, and we have a few ideas of how to do just that.

Share your story… on social media of course!

  • Post photos and memories on Facebook, like CISabroad’s page, and join the CISabroad alumni ambassador group to stay in touch with others as they transition back home as well.
  • Update your LinkedIn profile with your study abroad experience and join the LinkedIn CISabroad alumni network.
  • Follow us on Instagram for beautiful photos of student experiences from around the globe, and tag us in your international photos.
  • Subscribe to our Youtube channel for fun staff and trip highlights.
  • Check out our Blog, for firsthand accounts of CISabroad students and interns living the dream, and consider keeping up with your own blog from your time abroad.
  • And try out the hashtag #CISabroad­­­­­ to connect with other reminiscing alums!

Social media not your thing…?

Travel Tip: Do your best to fully immerse yourself in the culture and take advantage of the opportunities abroad. This is your chance to experience many new things: new people, new food, new places, new traditions, new languages, new everything! Even if you feel physically or emotionally tired, get out there, leave your fear at home, and bring a positive attitude. Don’t take anything for granted. Even the most seemingly insignificant experience will become a highly valuable memory in the future.
