Studying International Students: Adjustment Issues and Social Support.
This study investigated international student adjustment issues and needed social support. Data were obtained from individual interviews with 10 international students at The Ohio State University. Results indicate that international students experience significant problems in their coping with U.S. education, cultural differences, and language challenges. Friends and family were the most preferred resources to seek help. Providing academic orientation, improving student counseling, and strengthening language support for international students are vital for the successful adjustment of international students at U.S. universities.
