About Global Observer
Global Observer is run by Journalism students from Northeastern University’s School of Journalism. We write about issues that matter to the international student community in the U.S. but often overlooked in other publications. These range from obtaining a working visa after graduation to fitting into the new environment without losing one’s identity. The School of Journalism does not endorse any of the views expressed. This is an independent publication and not an official Northeastern source for federal regulatory information about student visas. Please note that policies may have changed since the date of publication. All inquiries about visas, status, compliance should be directed to the Office of Global Services or the equivalent office at your institution.Learn more
