A Campus Professional\u27s Guide to Understanding Culture Shock in International Students

By Scarlette Briones and Kathleen Bush

Abstract

Culture shock is a problem that can be faced by anyone, especially the growing number of international students coming to U.S. college campuses. Like domestic students, international students are not immune to the stress that accompanies attending college and they bring with them another set of unique needs. Culture shock or feelings of uneasiness felt by someone in a new atmosphere can create even more stress for international students. One way to alleviate culture shock is to help student affairs professionals and faculty be able to recognize the signs and help students find ways to overcome the anxiety of being away from their home country. The video and accompanying pamphlet will give professionals on campus working with these students advice on how to address culture shock and will allow them to have a better understanding of how it affects the international student experience
