Thiuri, Phillippa
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Boston College
While there is a significant body of literature concerned with the experience of international student acclimatization to life and study on campuses all over the United States, very little of this research examines their self-reported satisfaction with student services. This study examines what services are important to international students and what is their experience? This is a study of international students at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Western New York and their satisfaction with programs and activities provided to welcome, serve, retain and involve international students in mutual intercultural learning with Americans. The study results reveal that services related to academics provide the most satisfaction and meet the expectations of the international students surveyed. The study further revealed that the services registering the lowest satisfaction were: (1) Student Financial Services; (2) Housing Operations; (3) Co-operative Education Placement; (4) Dining Services; and (5) Transportation Services. The findings also reveal that female international students reported the highest satisfaction and the lowest dissatisfaction.
