In Their Own Words ...

"I had trouble getting used to the Italian way of life. We made an action plan with real life exercises to deal with practical problems. 
The Counseling and Self-Empowerment Service helps international students integrating in both University and Italy. Whenever I am stuck and don't know what to do for my studies or my personal issues, I'll go to the 
Counseling Service to get my priorities on track. They help ask relevant questions that I can't think of and this is how the Counseling and Self-Empowerment Service helps me straighten  things out and make important decisions". Allison

"When I arrived on campus I felt a little lost: new life, new schedule, and lots of expectations and responsibilities. I wasn't at the top of the class anymore and I was starting to doubt my choices. When family and personal interferences were added to the mix, I sought help at the Counseling and Self-Empowerment Service. After a few meetings I learned how to reorganize my time and motivate myself. Everything got back into order and I could begin enjoying student life". Francesca

"At the beginning of the first year of my Master of Science I started feeling very confused and insecure, not only because of the exams and the new program, which I knew were going to be really hard, but also because I didn't have a clear perspective about what I was going to do in my future and what my work expectations were. I discovered the Counseling and Self-Empowerment Service on the Bocconi website and I immediately contacted them. Thanks to them, I received more than just help with my academic problems: I can say that it has represented a real turning point in many areas of my life. I learned a lot of ways and methods to better manage my anxiety and stress, the organization of my time and how to best face my interpersonal relationships, and in fact, my results during the MSc improved a lot compared to the undergrad as well as my relationship with my professors and colleagues".
