Abstract

The purpose of this project was to create a set of resources to help international students transitioning from their native country to their second home, WPI. In the first year, international students experience common problems, such as a language barrier, different education system and cultural shock. During our study, the team conducted four focus group meetings to confirm initial background research. As a result, the team developed guidelines that can be beneficial for the WPI community.
