Post-Immersion Experience

Immersion – state of being deeply engaged or involved; absorption.

In a Study Abroad Experience you immerse yourself into another culture, another reality and actually another, globally-savvy you. Upon your return home, how do you transition from that deeply engaging experience back into this seemingly ordinary experience of Marquette University? Campus Ministry is one of many resources available to you on campus to engage in the process of reflection on your immersion experience and transitioning back into a purposeful life here on Marquette's campus. The following are two ways to walk through your post-immersion experience.

2. Action

Now that you know, what are you going to do about this “knowing?” Get busy helping similar groups of people that you just spent your time serving! There are many ways in which you can be involved in service on this Campus. In Campus Ministry, Midnight Run offers a weekly volunteer opportunity where you develop a relationship with those you serve and the group you serve with. M.A.P. is a week-long domestic service opportunity during Spring break. IMAP is a two week international immersion opportunity. The Center for Community Service offers many volunteer opportunities as well. Getting busy focusing on being a source for change here in Milwaukee is just as valuable as your connections abroad. Love and care for another is the best way to help yourself find meaning in any location. You just came back from proving that abroad, now prove it with local service!
