Adjustment Experiences of Non-Immigrant Foreign Students at the University of Rochester.
Rising, Muriel Nixon; Copp, Barbara M.
This pilot inquiry and study was designed to explore some of the adjustment experiences of the foreign students on the University of Rochester campus to provide information useful in orientation programming, foreign student advising, and foreign student counseling. Questionnaires were sent to 45 students and returned by 20 students who matriculated between 1960 and 1967, and 22 students who matriculated between 1963 and 1967 were interviewed. Questions were asked and are dealt with in this document concerning 4 broad areas: (1) adjustment to academic life; (2) adjustment to U. S. culture; (3) adjustment to living at the University of Rochester; and (4) adjustment within and across cultures. The pamphlet should be of use to administrators, advisors, professors, physicians, clergy, and counselors who deal with foreign students. (HS)
