CCU students 'unpack' education abroad experiences at regional conference in Greenville, S.C.

The Education Abroad unit in the Center for Global Engagement at Coastal Carolina University took five students to attend the Lessons From Abroad conference in Greenville, S.C., on Sunday, Oct. 14.

Sponsored by the South Carolina Association of International Educators and hosted by Furman University, the conference assists college students with the process of transitioning back to the United States after an education abroad experience. The conference also helps students to reflect on their time studying and living in another country.

The five CCU students who participated in the conference are:

Hannah Hamelman, a senior history major from Conway, S.C., studied abroad with Narxoz University in Kazakhstan, Spring 2018.

Kyle Johnson, a senior communication major from Longs, S.C., studied abroad with Exeter University in the United Kingdom, Fall 2016, and Deakin University in Australia, Spring 2017.
