The purpose of this study was to look at the social and transitional experiences of non-white Third Culture Kids at a predominately white institution. Six non-white TCKs were interviewed using phenomenological qualitative methodology. Responses were transcribed, coded, and analyzed to discover the central themes. A variety of factors emerged as determinants to how these students experience college in a country outside of their home country. The findings present implications for individuals in higher education that interact with non-white TCKs. Recommendations for future research are also included.
