General Tips & Tricks

In this section we detail other general tips and tricks Obies have passed on from their study abroad experiences.
  • Establish a core group of support people here (or online) and connect with them before you leave to let them know you might need their support while you're abroad. And in some cases, when you come back!
    • For example, if you anticipate not having a queer community abroad, solidify a support network that you can reach out to while you're abroad for support.
    • Before leaving, create a list of concrete things you can ask for from your support people - advice, guidance, a shoulder to cry on, a Skype call, etc.
