This event is for international graduate students who would like to find out how to successfully transition into the U.S. culture.  Moving away from home and adjusting to a new culture can be challenging. Feelings of excitement, frustration, and homesickness, although normal to the adjustment process, can be difficult to endure. In this workshop, you will be introduced to the ins and outs and ups and downs of cultural 
adjustment, and learn some strategies that will help you to cope with the adjustment process.  Registration for this event is required by 10/10 at
