International Student Resources

International Student Resources

The OSP offers support to all international students, beginning with orientation programs and including advising, support and community gatherings throughout the year. Audrey Hindes, assistant director of student life and academic support, facilitates a variety of forums for international students to share their gifts, ideas and questions with Candler faculty and the larger student body.

Conversation Partners

The Conversation Partners program is an opportunity for a non-native English speaker to be paired with a native English speaker so that they might learn more about one another’s language and culture through mutually enriching conversations throughout the semester. Conversation partners choose the times and locations for their meetings according to what works well for them individually. 

International Students Talk Time With Dean Love

Candler makes an active effort to give a voice to all persons in the community.  International Students Talk Time is an opportunity for international students to express any concerns or ask any questions about Candler directly to the dean. Through this event, students have been able to address academic as well as cultural issues.

Tea Time with Audrey

Any day of the week, international students may sign up for a cup of tea and conversation with Audrey Hindes, the assistant director of student life and academic support. This is a chance for students to blow off some steam with a steamy cup of tea from Audrey’s extensive selection of teas.
