Students, Foreign; Dormitory life;
Today there are a variety of issues and concerns in higher education. At the center of most of these issues and concerns are students. Many theories have been developed which address the needs and issues of college students and their development. One major theory of student development is Arthur Chickering's (1993) Vectors of Development. Chickering's theory, or vectors of development, address a variety of student concerns and how they deal with issues/concerns such as developing social and intellectual competence, developing interpersonal relationships, and establishing autonomy. The focus of this theory tends to be on transitions and maturation through those transitions. Along with these developmental transitions, Blimling and Miltenberger (1990) state that students attending college for the first time feel scared or unsure due to loss of familiarity and distance from family.
