Cross-Cultural Journey for International Students
There are many reasons why students choose to come to study in the United States. Some of the most common reasons are to obtain a degree, to gain professional and academic training, to learn about another culture, or to enhance personal growth. Often it is some combination of these. Some international students know a lot about the United States before arriving while others know much less. Whatever the reasons for coming to the U.S., and regardless of how much is known about the culture, nearly all international students go through a period of adjustment.
