There are 4 comments on Guidance and Support Offered to International Students

    1. I take it you are not from one of those countries… It is forcing massively disrupting and possibly life-changing effects on persons who have been previously allowed to legally enter, reside in, work, and study in the United States, based solely on their nationality and faith. Many of these people have spent years getting investigated and cleared by the Federal government to a greater extent than the average American will ever experience.

    2. It is a travel ban for students/researchers from those countries. If they had plans to leave the US (to attend a conference, vacation, or visit friends and family) they will not be able to enter the country to continue their studies/research.
      And who knows what other countries will be added to the list.

  1. Are there any events to meet with and show support to international students and scholars? I’m not talking about rallies but a safe and informal of space where to talk and mingle together. Thank you.
