The Returnee Lunch Series is designed to give recent off-campus study returnees a chance to gather with Macalester faculty and staff to reflect on and talk about issues that come up with particular salience to off-campus 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 abroad on questions of ethnicity and identity). International Center staff hopes that the series will extend and deepen the learning that comes from off-campus study.

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

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