What's Up with Culture? This material was developed to support and enhance a study abroad student’s ability to make successful cultural adjustments both before going overseas and upon return home from study abroad. It was produced primarily for traditional-aged, undergraduate US-American University students. Those preparing to participate in a study abroad program will find the first seven sections useful while those who are about to, or have, returned home from an international program can turn to the final four sections. The focus is generally on the concept of culture and how it impacts upon one’s ability to understand and function in a new and unfamiliar environment.  It concentrates on the skills, attitudes and behaviors which all study abroad students, regardless of their specific destination, will find useful.
