Orientation and Cultural Activities

Students are required to take part in a group or individual orientation session with the Alvernia Office of Global Learning before departure, and also a re-entry orientation session upon their return to campus.

Also, all third-party provider approved programs (i.e. BCA, SHU, etc.) begin with a comprehensive in-country orientation, and co-curricular activities are scheduled throughout the program.

The students are required to complete a Study Abroad Assessment Form within two weeks of your return to Alvernia’s campus, to ensure a smooth transition back into your academic classes and to learn how to integrate your experience with your personal and career plans. You will have an opportunity to share your experiences with the wider campus community if you wish. 


Please watch for posted Events and Announcements to register to attend a group session, or to schedule an individual session, please email holleran.center@alvernia.edu or call 610-790-1925.
