LWC's Culture Shock Workshop
By Erik Crittenden
Lindsey Wilson campus is a place dedicated to learning new ideas. Studies of Science, History, Religion, Literature, and other fields are all given root in one place to educate anyone determined enough to pursue their knowledge. The only problem with pursuing that knowledge is the culture shock that follows with moving to the campus.
The International Student Program (ISP as it's known on Lindsey campus) invited students to the Hodge auditorium to learn ways of fighting off that initial shock and embrace the new environment they have found themselves in. Dakota Smith, Assistant Director of ISP, and Kirsten Coetzee, Assistant Coach/Swimming, from South Africa, lead the students in a discussion in which they empathized with freshmen students, both domestic and international, about the struggle of being away from home.
Sabine Eastham, Director of ISP, then lead everyone in a game of "Brain Dating" in which students were encouraged to meet and mingle with one another in under 5 minutes before moving on to meet and mingle with a different person. Overall the outcome of the night was a success leaving most students feeling refreshed and ready to make new friends on Lindsey's campus.
We are looking forward to our next event on November 12, 2019, at 6:15pmCT - an evening of celebrating International Education. The event is open and free to the public.
If you would like to learn more about the program or see how you can join our wonderful network of host families, please contact the International Student Programs at 270-384-8236.
