International Student Discussion Group -Wednesdays at 2:30pm Are you an international student looking for support or advice about adjusting to American culture, making new friends, or succeeding academically/professionally? Would you like to talk with other international students about their experiences?  The international student discussion group is a place for international students to talk with one another and offer advice, resources, and support to help each other through the cultural adjustment process. The group is facilitated by counselors from the counseling center and is on a drop-in basis. It is not a therapy group, and you do not need to fill out paperwork at the counseling center to come to the group. Just meet us in the Peak Performance Center (1st floor, Johnson Hall) from 2:30pm to 3:30pm on Wednesdays this semester. Come when you want to, but please stay for the whole time if you come that week. Email Val (vgs210@lehigh.edu), Adrian (adc313@lehigh.edu ), or Song (ges210@lehigh.edu) if you have any questions or would like more information.
