Making Sense of the American Experience

The United States can be a perplexing country to understand, especially for a foreign visitor or student trying to adjust to their new circumstances. Why are Americans so patriotic? Why do Americans insist on the right to possess weapons? This group seeks to tackle some of the thornier issues that confront international visitors and provide helpful insights into US society and culture. This will be a safe and supportive opportunity for international participants to ask questions. Americans who reside in the State College area will be invited to express their views, share their values, and offer their perspectives. Discussion leader Bob Persiko will introduce each session with some basic principles and facilitate the dialogue in the interest of promoting mutual understanding. Please Sign-up Here!
