College Voices: Fresh off the plane

International students share their experiences moving to the United States: learning new slang, discovering their (least) favorite American food and discovering unknown academic interests.

Every year, students from across the world travel thousands of miles away from their families and friends to come study in the United States.

They are in a new environment, speaking a language that is not their first and learning the customs of a culture that is not their own.

On this episode, College Voices reporter Nour Abida asks four international students about their experiences making friends, going to classes and generally adapting to life in the United States.
