At several College and University campuses, several International Students / Scholars have banded themselves into recognized student groups. First this was a means to keep in touch with ones home, as the human connection between fellow citizens help'ed in the sociocultural transition. None the less, and more importantly, these groups started to initiate their own social and cultural programs. The ripple affect within the sociocultural academic ethos was awesome as it created a high character representation of their homeland and peoples and resulted in long term relationships after graduation with Americans. Americans who got an up-front cultural education as a direct emotional consequence of freindships they and the International Students / Scholars formed together. In several instances, both in the private, as well as in the political sector these freindships had even a more profound impact on the American national consciousness in its foreign relations.
