This book provides an essential forum—giving primary voice to a group not often heard—for international students to share their unique experiences, trials, triumphs, and paths of acculturation in US higher education. In their own words and experiences, they detail how their world touches our American campus communities and academic settings. Filled with pathos, their narratives are steeped in angst and triumph, disappointment and humor, and loss and eventual victory. Selected international student narratives for this book bring a non-western perspective that allows for anyone involved in US higher education to gain increased insights into how we serve our students. This work contains 28 narratives written by international students and scholars from around the world. This book is a unique resource for faculty, students, and administrators interested in learning more about the lived experiences of international students and scholars.
