Culture Shock Workshop at LWC International Student Program
By Sabine Eastham
Over 18 domestic and international students gathered at last night's "Culture Shock" workshop - offered to students at the beginning of each semester to learn about the struggles of culture shock and methods for coping with them.
Culture Shock can be experienced not only by international students, but also students moving from high school to college, students moving from a metropolitan area to a more rural setting, etc. Dakota Smith, Assistant Director of ISP, and Mayu Satoh, Recreation, Tourism and Sports Management Major from Tokyo, Japan, lead the students in a discussion in which they emphasized about the struggle of being away from home.
This was followed by "Brain Dating" in which students were encouraged to meet and mingle with one another in under 5 minutes before moving on to mingle with a different person. This is always the most fun part and also helps to put in motion what was learned- go out, mingle, make some new friends on Lindsey's campus.
If you would like to learn more about the program or see how you can join our wonderful network of host families, please contact the International Student Programs at 270-384-8236.
