What one student wrote about the group:'Being a new international student in a foreign country was not easy for me. Especially because the grading system and the education system are all totally different from what I knew all my life in Indonesia .  Adjusting has always been an issue in a new environment. With the support from the  group, it was not that hard to merge into the culture and to show the most of my academic performance'
