Abstract

The number of international students pursuing higher education in the United States continues to grow each year. While over 190 countries are represented, over half of the students are coming from Asian countries. According to a 2001 survey of international students studying in the United States, 55% of students come from Asian countries, with China, India, and Japan listed as the top three countries of origin. This paper will focus primarily on (1) the exploration of Asian international students' openness to United States counseling services offered on college campuses, (2) the counselor characteristic preferences of Asian international students, and ultimately (3) the impact of counselor ethnicity as a counselor characteristic.
