Abstract

The reality of being an international student in a strange land is not always an easy endeavor. Sandhu and Asrabadi (1994), in a study en international students psychological problems in U.S. colleges and universities revealed that these sojourners have to make a number of educational and social adjustments upon their arrival to this country. Talbot, Geelhoed and Ninggal (1998), and Schram and Lauver (1988) in their related studies concensusly agreed that college experiences for international students are often filled with more stress, and limited resources for professional help during their 4 year undergraduate experience than the majority of White American students.
