This site is designed as a place to share stories; but equally importantly, it is also designed as a forum for discussing the ideas in the stories.
Please click on the comment/respond link at the top or bottom of any story and share your thoughts about any issue in the story. You can read stories in a chronological order of their publishing or you can sort them by theme from the right.
Your comment can be a reaction to the idea in the story, a compliment, a critical reflection, a question or any other type of response. Please be constructive and encouraging, adding new ideas that the writer and other readers may find informative or inspiring. You can also respond to the expert posts.
We hope that the stories and the conversation will help you to learn from the experiences, mistakes, realizations, examples, and successes of others by spending less time, energy, and frustration than they did. Your response to others will enrich the conversation.
If you’d like to share your idea in the form of a new story, please submit it from here.
Anyone other than current/former international students can post comments under any stories here.
Teachers and scholars/researchers who work with international students can share scholarly perspectives through “expert posts” which can be submitted from a separate page here.
Thank you for your visit and your contribution.
