Reverse Culture Shock
Believe it or not, initially after returning to the states, you may experience a period of time where you miss studying abroad and need to readjust to life in the States. However, keep in mind that you are not a alone and degree of reverse culture shock varies greatly from individual to individual. Some past students have thought and talked about their experiences abroad nonstop (part of the reason why so many of us joined Global Ambassadors!) while others may find it difficult to reconnect with New York City (join Global Ambassadors and meet others in your position!).
