Being a Spartan: A cross-cultural experience!

Posted By: OISS    Published: Tuesday, 28 Aug 2012

The MSU Counseling Center (MSUCC), Office for International Students and Scholars (OISS) and Office of Cultural and Academic Transitions (OCAT) are excited to announce a new series of one-hour workshops to help students be successful at MSU. 

These workshops are applicable to ALL students new to MSU–including domestic students who recognize that intercultural relationships and a multicultural education will prepare them for study abroad, internships, and securing a job in our global workplace.

Also, these workshops are designed to be interactive and experiential in nature--they are NOT lectures or powerpoint presentations!
