Channel 8: Holiday plans differ for international students


International students are often unable to visit their home countries during holiday breaks. Luckily, some dormitories stay open, providing a place for these students over the holidays, although it does cost a small fee.

Some of these students, like Amir Pshenov, sophomore in political science, have friends who invite them to stay with their families. Robert Okoye, freshman in economics, extended an invitation to Pshenov over Thanksgiving, and both would recommend offering a place to stay for anyone.
