Are you an international student at UT and also feeling:
- Worried about your English speaking/writing skills?
- Unsure of how to make American friends?
- Angry or confused about the American culture?
- Feeling alone and like no one understands?
- Eager to learn about how to succeed in your classes?
If you answered YES to any of these question - please join us for the Survival Strategies Workshop Series! It is a place you can learn how to improve your life and academics. These meetings also give you an opportunity to meet other international students with similar experiences. You may come to one or ALL of the group meetings. It's up to you!
