"College and Notions of Asian America" - focuses on people who had not participated in "pan-Asian" organizations/activities during college - Asian Americans have contributed greatly to the growth of minority students attending colleges (104.5% increase between 1984 and 1995) - students tend to stick to their own racial groups - because Asian Americans are assumed to be good students, they are less likely to be discouraged from succeeding as Blacks and Latinos would be. - Problems created by Asians' academic achievement: - Still, many people are concerned about "a yellow invasion" or "Asian takeover" - Examples include MIT (Made in Taiwan), UCLA (University of Caucasians living among Asians), **UMBC (You Must Be Chinese). - raises the curves for everyone else - Popular image of the Asian nerd: studious, shy, great at math, not very social. - Another recent image: materialistic, tries hard to impress others, likes to be in cliques, goes to party. - Both stress "foreignness": shows that the Asian is an outsider to America - Development of Asian American students on college campuses has changed greately - In 1960s, most Asian college populations had Japanese or Chinese U.S. born students

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
