We offer two workshops for international students designed to address your experience at Columbia. We will discuss:

  1. Academics (2/9) - how to maximize your experience in class and with your professors; how and when to get to know professors; managing expectations; participating in class; collaborating with other students; asking for help and more.
  2. Social Life (2/16) - how to balance new friends and romantic relationships; navigating forming new relationships when living in a language and culture that are not your own;  getting comfortable; learning social norms; managing expectations; feeling lonely.

Registration required. To join, email [email protected] and [email protected] with "International" in the subject line.

Support groups are open to Columbia students on the Morningside/Manhattanville campus who have paid the full Columbia Health and Related Services Fee.
