For European students, the stereotype is a little different, where they are seen as more active in school activities and more open to socializing with Americans. Like the Asian students though, many see that the Europeans hang out mainly with people from the dorms.
What do you think of when you think of International Students?
I asked several classmates to share the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about dorm / international students.
“They are quiet and isolated, they talk to each other a lot”.
“We think that they’re rich and smart. They are quiet and keep to themselves”.
“They’re quiet and nice”.
“It depends on where they come from. European kids are more outgoing, whereas Asian students are more quiet and keep to themselves”.
“They’re pretty reclusive and slow”.
“They aren’t very diverse, they mainly hang out with people in their own group”
