Three Tips for International Students

  • Get to know as many classmates as possible. Remember their names and try to talk to them as much as possible. You never know if you're making a valuable connection that could change your life. It's easier for us to talk with someone from the same country, but I can guarantee you that if you want to be a good networker, you need to be able to connect with anybody... the best way to do so is practice, practice, and practice.
  • Be social and participate in all the Thursday night mixers with your classmates... you'll have a great time. You won't remember a lot of things, but you will remember the feeling that you experience with others. Try to be involved in something that you can look back, smile, and talk about in the future.
  • Help your friends! If you know of any opportunities out there that you're not planning to pursue, share it with your friends. I can guarantee you that your friends will appreciate any opportunities and this kind of attitude will take you a long way.

    In any case, enjoy your time at Pepperdine! It will go by really fast!
