CASA Return Conference

About the CASA Return Conference

Learn how to leverage your study abroad experience

Developed by a committee of study abroad professionals, every February the Connecticut Area Study Abroad Consortium of Advisors hosts an annual re-entry conference for recently returned study abroad students. The conference includes sessions that cover career paths of study abroad participants, opportunities for going abroad again, graduate schools abroad, and leveraging your international experience on your resume and in interviews.

This event is open to any student from a college or university in the Connecticut area who has studied abroad, in any foreign country, for any length of time. Visit the CASA Conference Facebook page for more details.
