Going Home: A Workbook for Reentry and Professional Integration.
The workbook for foreign students attending U.S. universities is divided into three parts. The first part, "Planning Your Program," is designed to be completed shortly after arriving on campus and asks the student to think about his/her reasons for being in the United States, goals, expectations of others, and how academic work will apply when returning home. Worksheets are provided for planning a budget, thinking about the financial realities at home, and making the most of financial resources available in the United States. Part Two, "Building a Professional Network," is designed to help the student gather and catalog information in a systematic way during his/her stay in the United States. It also encourages staying in contact with families and past or prospective employers. Part Three, "Preparing To Go Home," is designed to be completed during the last few months in the United States and covers practical aspects such as packing and completing one's work, and personal aspects such as thinking through the changes made while living in the United States and how the changes will affect the student on his/her return home. A bibliography of 21 items is included. (DB)
