Would you like to connect with others who might be going through similar things as you? The International Students Office and Vassar College Counseling Service will provide you with a safe, supportive, and comfortable space to share about cultural concerns, adjusting process, academic difficulties, language differences, stress, loneliness, friendships, romantic relationship concerns, career concerns, and more!

Navigating an Ableist World

Ableism can make the world unwelcoming and inaccessible to people with physical, intellectual, or emotional differences. Do your differences make it challenging to navigate your academic and social life at Vassar? Is it hard to find balance? Do you feel different than your peers? Are you worried about the impact of your differences on your future? You’re Not Alone! Join our monthly conversations and find support, compassion and guidance from fellow students facing similar challenges.  Contact Wendy at for more information.
