Support for international students is an important part of universities and colleges in this and every state. US culture is made up of immigrants from all over the world, and the country's educational institutions recognize that studying away from home can sometimes be difficult. US high schools, colleges and universities therefore offer a variety of services and programs to help international students with any challenges they may face while studying in the US. Support for international students varies from institution to institution, but some of the more common international student resources are:
Guided city tours
Peer counselling, tutoring and mentoring
On-campus orientation and transition programs
Social events, such as parties, dinners, movie nights
Writing, language and conversation programs
International student centers and clubs
Country-specific student clubs
International student financial aid
