International Circle is a group for international students only where members discuss concerns or issues that they may be experiencing and can expect to receive and provide support, encouragement, and feedback. An added benefit is that it will provide a safe space to discuss concerns related to the international student experience, which includes topics such as school, family, meeting new people, and other life experiences that only an international student can understand.

Grief is a natural process that is painful, personal and normal.
Grief allows a person to come to terms with a significant loss and make sense
of their new reality without a loved one.  The Counseling Center is here to
assist you in this journey.  This group will give you the opportunity to share
your feelings of grief and loss.  Meetings are open to students and staff.
