Abstract

International students study abroad for many different reasons, which may include personal and professional growth, sometimes prompted by unfortunate political, social, or economic circumstances. A common struggle for international students is adapting to the new environment of their host country offers. To address this, my thesis project entitled Abroad provides a structured campus space as an accessible entry point where international students can find needed emotional relief in the search for long-term solutions. The space will be designed to contribute to emotional well-being, with graphic content to create a sense of belonging, and printed information to encourage students to embrace the idea of contemplation with the ambition of fostering a supportive community.
