In addition to the usual challenges any person faces when transitioning to college, Wichita
State’s international students often also experience cultural shock upon arrival in the United
States. These cultural differences can hinder the student’s adjustment to college and life in a
new country. The International Student Union’s Buddy Program is a support initiative to help
exchange students more quickly adjust to a new country, culture and atmosphere so that they
may have a good experience during their stay at Wichita State.
