DescriptionThe United States hosts the largest number of international students globally, demonstrating how globalized the world has become. Plymouth State University is among the thousands of colleges that annually take on students from the global community. However, first and second-generation immigrant students are not considered international, though they may share commonalities. Through student interviews, this research aims to identify the experiences of what it means to be an international student, an exchange student, and a first or second-generation immigrant student at Plymouth State University. The information derived will create a lens of empathy for the Plymouth community, and provide useful information on how Plymouth State University can better serve and celebrate the global community on campus.
