Arguably, your move to university is one of the hardest transitions for your parents. Take some time to write them a letter or card to share what their support and guidance has meant to you. Treat them to ice cream or to coffee.
The popular “RAFT” model coined by David Pollock in the book Third Culture Kids: Growing Up Among Worlds, is one way to concretely decide how to move through this transition.

I would recommend MuKappa 100%, whether you’re an MK, you’re an international student, or you’re just a monocultural or just anyone who wants to learn, it’s a good place to meet great people.

We are excited to launch the new MuKappa website and brand refresh! Thank you to so many students and faculty advisors for giving us feedback and your wish lists for MuKappa.
