NYU London Cultural Adjustment Group
NYU London has convened Cultural Adjustment Group, hosted by a staff member, which allows students to discuss any questions or uneasiness they have about life in London or British culture. Sessions (some already conducted) are "frame-of-mind" discussions. We aim to provide a forum (alongside our town hall meetings, and student council) that addresses queries or discomforts in a congenial, supportive, and discursive setting.
