International Student Experience: Community on Campus

International Student Experience: Community on Campus

August 20, 2019 0 By Stanley Isaacs


With new friends on campus, I can know more
about their culture, their background, and I can know more about the life
differences. I think the favorite part of living on campus is meeting different
people. I think the interesting part is I could make lots of new friends in a
foreign country I’m a people person, so coming from India
where be there are people everywhere it was super cool though still have people
everywhere. I participated in lots of activities going on in the residence hall,
and it has really helped me to know more about the American culture and also
practice my English. I love making friends with different cultures. Like on
my floor, we have Serbian, Australian and English, and Canadian. I come from China. In China there is only one culture but after I come
here, I can make friends with different perspectives with different
ideas. I learned so much. I feel like I’m making progress every day. They have
experience living on campus, so they would be in charge of one
floor, and they could care about your life care, about your studies. If you have
some problems you could ask her for help. A resident assistant is basically an
upperclassmen who is went to the University of Iowa for one or more years,
and that person basically lives on your floor and is a great resource like an
elder sister are an elder brother. A resident assistant is a student who is aiming to have
students do better in their academic and student life. From the very first day I
came into Hillcrest, which is a dorm I live in, she came to say hi to me and asked me
several questions. She said if I have any problems living in the
dorm, I can just go ahead and knock on her door, and she will be a around. I have an RA
on campus, so she told me how to adapt to that new environment. She told
me a lot of things in my study, so in that process I make good friends with her. The
concept of a living learning community is basically a group of
students who live in a similar area and who have similar interests and the
resident assistant for that living learning community organizers
different events. A living learning community is a group of students with
similar or same educational interests and they are living together. it is a part
of residence education and trying to integrate aspects of education into
housing. The living learning community program helped me to find my best
friends.
