dc.description.abstractThis study aims to understand the intersection of the Korean culture and the life of Korean international students in the United States. International students are generally considered voluntary immigrants who chose to embark on a new life in a host country. However, Korean international students’ decision for studying abroad is often influenced by Confucian philosophy and strong family ties; some of Korean international students may have arrived in the United States mainly because of parental decision. It means that they may have come to the United States against their will. Consequently, a lack of self-determination may be a significant factor that affects the school performance and well-being of this population. Results of this online survey study will contribute to a better understanding of Korean students in the United States, and inform service providers who may work with them for their better services. The survey is created to assess school performance, depression, alcohol use, life satisfaction of Korean international students. Currently, the data collection process is in progress and it is expected to be completed in the mid-March and the analysis will be done by early April.
