Luncheon Series

The Returnee Lunch Series is designed to give recent study away returnees a chance to gather with Macalester faculty and staff to reflect on and talk about issues that come up with particular salience to study away programs. They may be academic (language acquisition abroad, for example), or comparative (internships abroad and at home), or of personal significance (such as the impact of study away on questions of ethnicity and identity). International Center staff hopes that the series will extend and deepen the learning that comes from study away.

Tuesdays, 12:00-1:00 (unless otherwise noted)

Returnee Lunch Registration complete by 3:00 on the Monday before each week's lunch.
