Given the changes in cultural values, communication patterns, academic standards, and general lifestyle differences, adjusting to college can be a difficult process for many international students. These changes can potentially bring about confusion, loneliness, and stress.
The Counseling Center is planning to start a support group where you can come and talk with other international students who are experiencing similar issues and learn effective coping strategies. We will also talk about American culture and norms.
