9780226484792: Succeeding as an International Student in the United States and Canada (Chicago Guides to Academic Life)

Each year, 700,000 students from around the world come to the United States and Canada to study. For many, the experience is as challenging as it is exciting.  Far from home, they must adapt to a new culture, new university system, and in many cases, a new language. The process can be overwhelming, but as Charles Lipson’s Succeeding as an International Student in the United States and Canada assures us, it doesn’t have to be.
            Succeeding is designed to help students navigate the myriad issues they will encounter—from picking a program to landing a campus job. Based on Lipson’s work with international students as well as extensive interviews with faculty and advisers, Succeeding includes practical suggestions for learning English, participating in class, and meeting with instructors. In addition it explains the rules of academic honesty as they are understood in U.S. and Canadian universities.
            Life beyond the classroom is also covered, with handy sections on living on or off campus, obtaining a driver’s license, setting up a bank account, and more. The comprehensive glossary addresses both academic terms and phrases heard while shopping or visiting a doctor. There is even a chapter on the academic calendar and holidays in the United States and Canada.           Coming to a new country to study should be an exciting venture, not a baffling ordeal. Now, with this trustworthy resource, international students have all the practical information they need to succeed, in and out of the classroom.

Review:

"Lipson provides a true insider's perspective on American higher education with a view from the classroom to help students find their way around and get the most out of their academic pursuits. Professor Lipson guides students through the day-to-day details of life in North America, and, more significantly, he explains with tremendous insight the nuances of the academic environments in which they will be working.... We are all in his debt." - From the Foreword by Allan E. Goodman, President & CEO, Institute of International Education "A well-written, highly informative guide to campus life abroad.... The advice is valuable and Lipson's direct and informal style very effective." - Philip G. Altbach, Director of the Center for International Higher Education at Boston College"
