Missionary Kids (MKs)/Third-Culture Kids (TCKs)

“Combining culture shock with college shock is enough to send the head of any young adult spinning. I greatly appreciated that Geneva recognized this and went out of their way to help MKs like myself feel comfortable , not only in college, but also in the U.S. The doors of the International Student Services Office were always open to us, and their love and compassion have made me love Geneva all the more.”
Katie Tricarico, Missionary Kid from Uganda

While every college freshmen faces changes, missionary and third-culture kids have to cope with culture clashes on top of other adjustments. Staff members in Geneva’s International Student Services Office welcome students who come from different circumstances, understand the challenges they face and works to make the transition from country to country easier.

In addition to everyday support and encouragement, the International Student Services Office has several support programs available for MKs. Mu Kappa and the International Student Organization are two clubs specifically designed as fellowship groups for MKs and TCKs, although they are open to all students.
