Abstract

This article examines international students' experiences at a US university and how these might influence them to recommend or not recommend that others from their home country attend it. Data were collected via online survey at a large public university in the US Southwest. Students from predominantly non-White regions of origin had more negative experiences. Findings suggest that perceptions of unequal treatment are a major factor influencing international students' attitudes.
