Quotes from conference attendees

Attending the Lessons from Abroad Conference was a great way to interact with other study abroad alumni and learn about more international opportunities. It made me realize that going abroad again is possible, and now I am planning to volunteer or teach abroad after I graduate. I would definitely recommend that all study abroad returnees attend this conference.

"The Lessons From Abroad Conference was definitely an eye-opening experience. Not only did I learn how to incorporate my study abroad experience into a resume and job interview, but I also learned about work/volunteer opportunities abroad that I didn't even know were possible!

"On top of all that, I got to meet great people who studied abroad all over the world."
