This document presents 2 papers under 1 cover concerning the life of foreign students at the University of Kansas. The first paper, Foreign Students at the University of Kansas by Padma Jayaraman, discusses the difficulties of foreign students in communication with Americans. Foreign students seem to feel alienated from the American culture and find that making friends among Americans is almost an impossibility. However, several programs at the University of Kansas have been instituted to make foreign students feel more at home. These are the KU International Club, the People-to-People program, the Host Family Program, and the Small World, Inc. The second paper, entitled The Office of the Dean of Foreign Students, is by Marie-Claire Roussy. This paper deals with the function and organization of the Dean of Foreign Students' Office with particular emphasis on the special demands and needs of foreign students. The author concludes her paper with a suggestion that more use be made of feedback resources to enable administrative personnel to keep up to date with the problems and needs of foreign students.
