Title

Column "Mina's Arena: Vicissitudes of Foreign Student Life Are Overrun With Contradictions"

Description

In this column by Lebanese student Abdullah Mina, the ways that foreign students are misunderstood and talked about by American students are explored. Mina begins the piece by claiming that being a foreign student "is a responsibility because the student is, in a sense, a representative of his country and his people" and that the judgements passed on that student can therefore easily be related to his or her country. Many of his "contrasts" illustrate the stereotypes of the "sophisticated" foreigner versus the "selfish" and "unpatriotic" one.
