International students are a significant part of the Dragon Community here at Drexel University, representing over 117 different countries. Adjusting to a new country, cultural and academic system can be exciting and challenging. International students can face challenges that include:
- Culture shock
- Immigration concerns
- Homesickness and separation from loved ones
- Language/communication differences
- Financial stress
The Counseling Center recognizes the unique needs of international students and is committed to providing culturally responsive care to our students. Currently, the Counseling Center is able to provide therapy in French and Korean.
The Counseling Center offers a variety of services, including workshops, individual and group counseling. Check out our groups page for information about our USO: International Students group.
