Culture Shock

On December 18, the Office of Student Affairs and the FACES Advocacy Group presented the Fall term installment of the Cross-Cultural Dialogues series, “Culture Shock.” Panelists Brittany Grime (BA Multidisciplinary Studies, from the U.S.), Georgi Kardzhaliyski (MEd Interdisciplinary Studies, from Bulgaria), and Tatyana Pavlova (MEd English as a Second Language, from Russia) discussed their experiences with culture shock while studying in another country, and gave recommendations for best practices when dealing with culture shock, both as the visitor to another culture, or as a host welcoming visitors to your culture.
