March 13, 2015
Room 9204

Facilitated by Aleksandra Rayska, M.A.

As an international student you bring unique and valuable experiences to your studies. It is important to note, however, that you may also experience some unique stressors during your time at the Graduate Center. Many international students experience homesickness, loneliness, and difficulties with language on top of the academic stress most students experience. Some international students even end up doubting the talents that brought them here as they adjust to life in a foreign country.

We invite anyone who identifies as an international student and who seeks support and connection to Acclimate to New York, a workshop for international students. This workshop is designed to meet the needs of international students who are interested in working together to address some of the common difficulties facing them such as: adapting to a new culture, making new friends, learning a new language, and meeting the demands of academic life.

Ms. Aleksandra Rayksa is a predoctoral clinical psychology fellow.

Please note that no food or beverage will be allowed during this workshop.

The application has also been attached for your convenience, email and fax is acceptable. For more information, please call (212) 817-8731.
