CSSH Circle is a peer mentoring program that connects new international students and dedicated continuing student program assistants (PAs). PAs are teamed with a small group of international students guiding them through the academic and social transition into CSSH, Northeastern University, and Boston. Circle mentor teams meet regularly throughout the semester through a variety of activities. Joining CSSH Circle is an opportunity to utilize practical knowledge and interpersonal skills in a way that builds our CSSH community.

What Students are Saying

“As an international student, sometimes it is hard to communicate with my classmate since English is my second language, and the culture difference really put more difficulties into the communication. I had participated in CSSH Circle events before and it was really helpful for me, so I registered for the workshop and I knew it would be of great help.”

“I really enjoyed the food! Also I learned that there are different types of communication, the workshop helped me understand that people from different culture background are used to different types of communication, it is important to understand this so that we can communicate with people in a respectful way.”
