Exploring Asian International Graduate Students’ Non-Academic Challenges at Auburn University
Due to the fact that the majority of the international graduate students studying in the United States are from Asia, many research studies have unfolded the challenges faced by Asian international graduate students. However, there has not been a study that looked at this population at Auburn University, the second largest university in the State of Alabama. Therefore, this research paper is aimed at uncovering Asian international graduate students’ non-academic challenges at Auburn University. The researcher utilizes qualitative research methods; structured Internet surveys and focus group interviews, to explore the non-academic challenges Asian international graduate students experienced at Auburn University.
