At the beginning of each semester, students attend what can seem like a completely different college, with new classes, new professors, and new activities shaking up what a student may be used to. Whether it’s the student’s freshman year or final semester, whether they are a transfer student, or an international student, this ever-changing landscape can be challenging. These challenges can be especially trying for international students, who are leaping into this new environment far away from home into a new and different culture. No matter where you are coming from, fitting in at any college and forming friendships can be tough! But don’t worry. Although it may seem difficult at first, college can provide some of the best and most rewarding years of a student’s life.
As a college student, it’s likely that you are very familiar with social media in all its various forms – Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, you name it. You might be a little less familiar with the social media platform called LinkedIn.
