The study unpacks the alienation experienced by the international students at Scripps College who comprise 4.4% of the college’s student population using techniques of long-form literary journalism. A host of interviews, past news stories and data has been utilized for research purposes. The findings highlight an inadequate culture of support to international students posed by the lack of a proactive administration, minimal support resources, and a monoculture imposed by the cost of the education at Scripps. The study further indicates the rising transfer rates and unhappy testimonials of present students and their detrimental impact on the college’s bottom line.
