Living in an International Residence Hall as an Influence on Selected Attitudes of American College Students: Research and Implications.
Marion, Paul B.; And Others
A study was conducted at North Carolina State University in the Spring of 1976 to compare American students who lived in an international residence hall during 1975-76 with American students who lived in conventional residence halls during 1974-75 as to their international attitudes, international activities, and interaction with foreign students. The international hall housed approximately 140 American and 50 foreign students, while the conventional halls included several foreign students scattered throughout each hall. There were no significant differences between the two groups as to level of involvement in international activities. American students who roomed with a foreign student in the international hall expressed attitudes which were more internationally-oriented than American students in conventional halls or those who lived in the international hall with another American as their roommate. American students living in the international hall had a significantly higher level of interaction with foreign students than American students who lived in conventional halls, but not in close proximity to foreign students. American students who roomed with a foreign student in the international hall had a significantly higher level of interaction with foreign students than American students who lived in the international hall, but did not room with a foreign student.
