(https://www.insidehighered.com ) New study finds many foreign students lack American friends Submitted by Scott Jaschik on June 14, 2012 - 3:25am Part of the ideal of recruiting foreign students to American campuses is that the friendships formed across international lines will leave those from many countries (including the United States) with new perspectives and personal connections in many nations. For many foreign students in the United States, that's just not happening, according to a new study. [1] The research -- which appears today in the Journal of International and Intercultural Communication -- finds that nearly 40 percent of international students report having no close American friends and say that they wish they had more meaningful interaction with those born in the United States. The study found variation by region, with students reporting different results if they are from different parts of the world and if they are studying in different parts of the United States.

    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.
