The first country of destination, the United States of America, welcome more than a million international students every year, with 1,043,839 in the 2015-2016 academic year. But as international students, they face environmental adjustment challenges that greatly affect their academic performance.
In fact, colleges in the U.S are unique compared to any other countries overseas. What makes colleges in the U.S so unique is the activities and services they offer out of the classroom. These resources play a crucial role in developing skills and abilities that contribute to a student's overall skills in Personal and Intellectual Autonomy. Unlike the U.S, schools in Africa and Europe usually only offer classes with no official student life (extracurricular activities/resources/opportunities).
As a result, the resources that colleges offer are unfamiliar to international students. In fact, a great majority of them keep the same attitude as they would in their home country that is just attending their classes then head home.
