In a city that is generally known to be safe, this tragic event feels particularly jarring. It’s difficult to predict senseless attacks such as this.

Ingle International Empowers Students to Take Care of their Mental Health

Studying abroad is a great adventure that can challenge students’ perspectives and limits and teach them new things about themselves and the world they live in. Health challenges, however, can be difficult for international students to handle—especially when they are in an unfamiliar place and far from their usual support network. Staying healthy abroad goes beyond regular doctor’s visits and standard hygiene. There are a variety of stressors that students face, especially when studying far from home. Mental health and wellness challenges such as anxiety and depression are an increasing concern. What’s more, being in a new culture brings its own stresses from managing your nutrition with unfamiliar cuisine to even navigating new customs—all this alongside more familiar student concerns like battling that flu that’s making the rounds. Ingle International’s Stay Healthy at School program is here to help students mitigate these challenges. All Ingle International’s student groups have access…

Global News: Las Vegas Shooting Underscores the Need for Travel Insurance
