Thiis Honors Thesis aims to analyze and study college individuals who are raised in other countries and brought up with multicultural backgrounds (relating to several cultural or ethnic groups) and compare them to a sample of students who are considered to be mono-cultural (relating to one or few ethnic groups). From these two samples my research is aimed at investigating how these two samples are able to socialize and adapt themselves in a university setting and how their experiences and social circles vary in terms of diversity and cultural intelligence. This study uses data from a sample (n=71) of individuals who are or have been in universities and have either a monocultural or multicultural background. Though this topic focuses on many aspects, this study is focused on the differences between these groups and aims at coming to viable solutions in order to engage in greater diversification in schools and universities.
