本文为Liz Zhang学姐给大家推荐的值得去的几个国际部讲座的简述,时间,地点等,并讲述了她认为值得去的原因,希望大家可以受用。

1Library Basics  图书馆资源介绍

Description: It’s extremely important to learn to use the University’s library services as soon as possible. This workshop will introduce new international students and scholars to the University’s extensive library system so that they can start using library resources immediately, and will provide an introduction to online research using University and other databases. Students and scholars may attend either the Central Campus or North Campus workshop, but the North Campus workshop will be of most interest to engineering, art, and architecture students.

​    ​不管是研究生还是本科生,在美国读书如果能得心应手地利用图书馆的资源都是能可以给学习、论文甚至生活提供很多便利的。密大光实体的图书馆就有n多座,这个培训能让你对各个图书管位置、资源情况有个概况了解。比如说如何检索专业论文,如何用好在线图书管理员帮你找资源,再比如跨馆借教科书inter-library loan(可以省掉很多钱),比如哪里自修最舒服,还有海量的多媒体库可以租借到各种电影、音乐、纪录片等等。不过这些讲座需要提前预约一下,具体地址如下:9月11号还有一期专门中文版的。建议如果有时间的话先听一遍英文版,再去听一遍中文版。毕竟信息量比较大,听两遍也值得。https://ttc.iss.lsa.umich.edu/ttc/?s=international

2Cultural Adjustment Roller Coaster 文化适应“过山车”

Description: Moving away from home and adjusting to a new culture can be challenging. Feelings of excitement, frustration, and homesickness, although normal to the adjustment process, can be difficult to endure. In this workshop, you will be introduced to the ins and outs and ups and downs of cultural adjustment, and learn some strategies that will help you to cope with the adjustment process.

​    ​强烈建议第一次出国读书的同学们来听这个讲座,第一次来密歇根生活的同学也会受益匪浅。时差12小时,连根拔起被移植到地球的另一端,语言环境生活环境从书本上学的和电影里看的变成了自己24/7的现实。。。每个第一次出国长住的人都会或多或少或迟或早地遭遇会适应不良。提前对这个过程有更深入的了解,听听过来人分享他们的经验和教训,以便积极应对,可以让整个在美学习生活经历更加充实丰富。

Stress Less for Success  应对压力为成功铺路

Description: The psychologists at the Counseling and Psychological Services will explain what stress is, discuss stressful experiences that international students may go through, talk abutment health and how to get help, and provide tools to manage stress. Activities to help students get to know each other, share their experiences, and learn specific strategies on how to manage stress will be offered.

Towards the end of the workshop, two international Center Orientation Peer Advisers will share their experiences and provide information about resources organized by fellow students that international students can utilize.

​    ​一旦开学每个人都会马上感觉到“压力山大”。随着学期的深入,课业上的、文化差异方面的、人际交往方面的、课外活动上的、个人内心探索方面的。。。扑面而来,很有可能就大到如泰山压顶,把原来积极乐观、活泼外向的人都压的喘不过气来。一个人又独在异乡,怎么应对这些压力??到喘不过气来的时候就已经太晚了。来听听专业的心理学家讲讲压力到底是如何在生理上心理上对一个人发生作用的,又有哪些警示信号需要特别注意,以及在密大校园内外有什么资源可以帮助你缓解应对压力,更佳从容的面对挑战。同时听听作为“过来人”的往届国际生分享他们的切身经历。

​    ​推荐这两个讲座有几个原因:1是因为美国的健康保险和医疗系统不是一般的复杂,国际生初来乍到一下子上来会对那些名词copay, deductible, co-insurance, out-of-pocket, in-network,out-of-network, PPO, HMO… 一头雾水;2是美国看病如果自己掏腰包的话确实狠狠狠贵;3是密大的国际生保险是强制买的,既然保费都交了,当然要知道你能享受哪些服务、什么费用,以及有哪些是免费资源和服务。没有人能担保在这边生活期间不会遇到个头疼脑热或突发状况什么的,所以预先对这些情况有个大致了解,一来增加心里安全感,二来真的到了用得着的时候也不用抓狂了。
