iCafe: International Student Success Workshop


iCafe is a weekly academic and student services workshop in which faculty, international student leaders, and experts in the field inform, educate, engage, and inspire international students in order to enhance their academic and personal success.

The iCafe Series supports international students’ transition by helping them develop four key skill sets that are beneficial to their success. The four skill sets are:

  1. Understand the importance of Adjustment Skills
  2. Develop Academic Skills and understanding of the U.S. education system.
  3. Develop Interpersonal Strengths and mental health awareness.
  4. Explore Career Skills that will prepare the students to be more competitive in their future careers.

iCafe offers different sequences and sessions for New and Continuing International Students to support your Stony Brook journey.
