About the Series

The Student-to-Student Success Series is a way for you to connect with other UAlbany students from all over the world to talk about how to navigate this new academic experience. These are not lectures, but conversations. Come to share, learn, and to enjoy some tasty snacks. This series is facilitated for all students, by students with the support of the Center for International Education and Global Strategy and the Academic Support Center
