This session will focus on our understanding of what it means to be a U.S. citizen and/or UNC student while studying or traveling in another country. The session will examine some of the attitudes and situations you might encounter and will also consider your role in shaping those encounters. We will review some commentary from other students who reflect on their experiences, as well as consider the advice of those who have studied international perspectives on the U.S. and its citizens.
