As our first Fall semester is coming to a close, I have been learning and growing so much through this time. I am still learning and adjusting to the class schedule of students. Also, I am learning and still have a lot to learn about the needs of students. Students go through a variety of challenges throughout each semester. Some of their challenges come in the form of: being homesick, managing their schedules, keeping parents informed of daily life, making friends, etc. These are just a few.
If you are a student reading this blog, please know that International Campus Ministry is here for you! I can't take your tests for you or do your projects, but I will be a good listener. We are working hard to help students develop new friendships with other International students as well as other American students.
As the Director of ICM, my desire is to connect with the international students at Purdue University along with connecting them with American friends. This blog is some personal thoughts and stories from our experiences.
