The Chinese student population at MSU has risen from 96 students in 2006, to over 4,000 students in 2013, the latter being about 13% of the total student enrollment. Reflective of a nationwide trend across several Big Ten universities, increasing international student enrollment poses questions about intercultural understanding and engagement in the higher education setting.
This documentary film captures some of the challenges and growth experiences of Chinese students as they navigate a new cultural and social landscape on campus and beyond. Please join us for a talk and discussion following the film with the directors: Emmy Award-winning director Geri Alumit Zeldes, Associate Professor of Journalism at MSU, and Emmy Award-winning television journalist Troy Hale, Academic Specialist in Telecommunication, Information Studies & Media at MSU.
