IPO, CCPH To Host Counseling Sessions For International Students

Thursday, January 24, 2019

Going away to college is tough, and when you factor in adjusting to a new country, it can be even tougher. To help support this transition for international students, the International Programs Office (IPO) and CCPH are pleased to announce “Let’s Chat” sessions, beginning in January 2019.

These informal, free drop-in sessions will be led by Christopher Watkins from CCPH. Sessions are scheduled for January 30, February 12, 28, March 11, 29, April 10, 23, and May 6, all from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the Third Floor Conference Room at IPO.

International students are invited to discuss any issues they might be having—large or small— alone or in groups. “These sessions can become a sounding board to test out the idea of what it’s like to talk to someone,” Watkins says. “This is a safe place to explore—the intention is to create sessions that are grounding space for international students they can use as much or as little as they want.”
