Description

A Collegian article talking about six students from Hong Kong who attended Westhampton College. While all six girls were of Asian descent, only five claimed Hong Kong as their home. One student, Joyce Wan-Jung Chang, claimed Sao Paulo, Brazil as her home. Joyce was also the only one of the girls to live on campus. The remaining five shared an apartment down town. Two of the girls, Mee-Han Chan and Patricia W.W. Neva, were attending Westhampton on the Dr. Carver Scholarship fund. According to the article, they all found Americans "so open and easy going, so friendly."
