Eleven undergraduate Bangladeshi international students at an Upper Midwest regional comprehensive university participated in this qualitative research study.

They also experience sociocultural stressors such as: culture shock, social isolation, racial discrimination, and financial concerns. Language barriers cause stress in both academic as well as in sociocultural situations.
