Summary

On today’s episode, we’ll be talking about the mental health challenges unique to international students. We’ll explore what international students can do to nurture mental and emotional wellness, and what staff and faculty can do to help their students. 

Our episode hosts, Lauren Atmore and Pierre Ross, will be talking to Lawrence Everest, an international student, and to Roma Rashidi, a student counselor at the Centre for Accessible Learning and Counselling Services.

The videos and podcasts were recorded when our campuses were open, prior to March 2020. Centennial College has transitioned to offering academic and co-curricular programs online. We value opportunities to engage with our students to support their learning and professional goals. For all Global experience programs, SaGE will offer Virtual Global Experience programming in the Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 semesters until travel advisories have been lifted and the Canadian government has deemed travel for education is safe. Students can still take part in fulfilling opportunities such as studying virtually with one of Centennial’s international exchange partners, participating in an applied research project with a partner in Morocco, or completing a virtual internship with agencies in Costa Rica and China.
