Title

Article "UR International Relations To Help Foreign Students"

Description

On November 7, 1974 The Collegian published an article about the problems that international students face at the University of Richmond. Phillip Hart, the university's International Student Advisor not only considered foreign-born students as international, but also students who were US born but had foreign parents who resided either in the US or abroad. The article highlights various initiatives taken by the university such as the development of International Relations Club and "Big International Fair and Dinner" to help international students overcome "culture shock" and integrate easily into the university's culture. To particularly help international students facing housing issues during long breaks such as Christmas break, the university advertised the Christmas International House sponsored by the Baptists and the Presbyterians for a five-dollar registration fee.
