Attend a Conference

Lessons from Abroad is a conference that launched in 2008, during which more than 100 study abroad alumni spent the day in guided conversation with their peers and international educators from Southern California. Topics included what it means to be a returnee and how study abroad has shifted students' future aspirations. By 2010, Lessons from Abroad had become a statewide force amongst education abroad professionals and the students for whom the conference served. Today, almost 50 conferences run across the U.S. and more than 3,000 students have participated.

Get Published

Many students keep blogs while studying abroad, but not all students realize that they can get their writing published! For more information, students should contact their Study Abroad Advisor.

Consider a Career in International Education

The Office of International Affairs provides TTU students with different avenues for launching a career in international education. Students who are eligible for work-study positions or have interest in volunteering or interning should speak with TTU Study Abroad staff about their interests.
