Abstract

The rapid growth and changes in 21st century China have had immense effect on various aspects of life for the Chinese. This thesis presents my research on the socialization of Chinese international students, or liu xuesheng, in the United States and examines my finding that contemporary Chinese students are socializing more successfully than students who came earlier. In this thesis I also offer explanations for why socialization has improved and how China’s growth and change have affected the socialization of Chinese students at Wesleyan University.
