Kent State International Mentors

When an international student first comes to a U.S. College, he/she faces social, cultural and academic challenges. These students really want to be a part of and learn about the American culture, and they also would like to share their culture with others. This program is designed to provide domestic students the opportunity to help international students cope with their challenges in the U.S. and Kent State University, while at the same time expand a domestic student's knowledge of another culture. This organization ultimately creates a safe environment for both students to develop the skills necessary to become global citizens.
As a mentor, a domestic student will be paired with an international student. The American student will help guide the international student through his/her Kent State experience by being a support system.
