Every international student’s life at Iowa State will begin with, ”Wow, it is America! Air of freedom! Hooray!” followed with a slight sound of, “but where the hell is Iowa?” Fresh air, green grass and nice people will fill up the whole picture for a newly arrived student. It will not take long, however, to think that, “It is some kind of boring here.” Then there comes culture shock. If you are a graduate student, unfortunately, just double the pain you have imagined.
