► IPC Re-entry WorkshopOnce a semester, IPC hosts a welcome back re-entry meeting for students that studied abroad in the past semester. This meeting welcomes you to share your experiences during your time abroad and since coming home with other students who share the common bond of study abroad. You'll also learn about the various events going on geared towards former study abroad students and ways you can get involved with our international community at UNCG and help promote study abroad. This workshop counts as one of the assignments for IGS 297, the re-entry course. Attending and participating in the workshop earns you 30 points for the class. For those that are not able to attend the workshop, you will work with the instructor for the IGS reentry course to submit an alternate assignment in lieu of the workshop.
