Study Abroad Alumni Networks

LAS Study Abroad Alumni Networks, presented by LAS Alumni Relations and LAS International Programs, provide alumni with a platform to reconnect with their study abroad host community and friends made while abroad. The alumni networks offer opportunities to stay up-to-date on current international engagement through newsletters, as well as virtual and in-person events. Alumni can also support and connect with current students through mentorship programs—for example, by hosting a student intern for a Virtual Global Experience.
