FOREIGN
Continued from page 1
At the University of Pennsylva-
nia, 26 percent of foreign students
are TAs, said Foreign Student Advi-
sor Diane Haydon.
Baldwin said foreign students
have less flexibility with their job
options than American students.
"Because they are here on visas to
study, there are restrictions on how
much and where they can work,"
Baldwin said.
Although immigration rules are
strict, a percentage of foreign stu-
dents decide to continue living in
the U.S. after finishing their studies,
said Ann Mawdsley, from the Na-
tional Association for Foreign Stu-
denit Affairs, which handles gov-
drdinent grants and directs students
to resources.
"I will try to find a job here,"
said Hovey Lee, a graduate student
from Hong Kong in the School of
Information and Library Studies. "I
find Hong Kong too crowded and
too busy. America suits me."
-However, Kasemarm said he
would like to return to Thailand af-
ter working in the United States for
a few years. "I want to go back and
help my country. Also, I miss my
friends and family," he said.

Engineering and computer sci-
ence programs are the areas in which
most foreign students are concen-
trated, many counselors said. In ad-
dition, the United States is one of
the few countries offering degrees
in business administration, which
appeals to many students. Universi-
ties that are strong in these three ar-
eas are most popular with overseas
students.

mouth plays an important role in
attracting students.
"Indians come to us because we
have a long association with India.
People who have had a good experi-
ence with us in the past do the re-
cruiting for us when they go back
home," Samon said.
Some university officials said
the location of the school has an in-
fluence on a foreign student's deci-

'Societies are radically different - from
morals, to money, to marriage. Even though
these students intellectually understand, the
emotional adjustment is very hard'

proves willing to consider their
demand for territorial concessions,
Palestinian rights and an end to
building Jewish settlements in the
occupied territories.
"The momentum in Madrid is
good, the spirit in Madrid is good,
why don't we keep it here?" Abu-
Jaber said. He said an argument over
venue posed a "danger of disrupting
the whole momentum of the confer-
ence."
The first round of face-to-face
negotiations is to begin in Madrid
on Sunday, Israeli officials said. It
will deal only with procedural
matters. Still in question is where
the substantive bilateral talks will
take place.
Shamir saw Israel as the victim
of sustained Arab "boycott, block-
ade, terrorism and outright war."
Syria's al-Sharaa said that but for
Israel, "millions of Arabs would
not have been uprooted from their
homes." Jordan's Abu-Jaber said
"the Palestinians and Jordan have
paid the price" of the Nazi
Holocaust that drove the Jews to
seek new homes in Palestine.
Abu-Jaber conceded that "most
Arabs, out of a sense of outrage and
feelings of injustice and betrayal,
have refused since 1947 to contem-
plate accommodation."

Haydon said Penn's Wharton
School of Business attracts many
foreign students.
"We have a very large MBA en-
rollment, even at the undergraduate
level," Haydon said.
Similar to most other universi-
ties, the majority of foreign stu-
dents at the University of Maryland
are drawn from China, Taiwan, In-
dia, and Japan, said Jud Samon, coor-
dinator of international faculty and
student services.
Since most universities do not
recruit heavily overseas, word-of-

sion of where to attend.
"If a student is confused about
where to go, he might go to Mary-
land because it is near the nation's
capitol. They have seen it on the me-
dia and it might be reassuring to be
close to an embassy," Samon said.
Austell said he believes Chapel
Hill's beautiful setting draws for-
eign students.
"The campus is 200 years old and
there is an ambiance about it. Also,
the crime rate is low, which is com-
forting for students coming from
abroad," Austell said.

bly submit to arrest. The person did
submit to arrest. He felt he could do
that without endangering anyone
else," Heatley said.
Moreover, Heatley addressed
concerns raised by University stu-
dents about the police force's
treatment of minorities when ques-
tioning them about a crime, specifi-
cally in reference to an incident
which took place on the Diag Oct. 3.
Police drew guns against a suspect
who they believed was armed. How-
ever, the police never found the gun.
Officers then stopped Shenita
Talton, an African American, to
question her about being an accom-
plice in the incident. Talton said, at
the time of the incident, the police
stopped her solely on the basis of
her race.
"I think our people would be as
sensitive to that issue as much as or
more than any other police agency,"
Heatley said. "Officers need to be

Sallade suggested that party op-

Heatley added that DPSS offi-
cers go through training to handle
concerns and reactions from minor-
ity community members when being
questioned by a police officer.
SSAC chair James Snyder, pro-
fessor of Architecture and Urban
Planning, said the committee will
not issue an evaluation of the Diag*
incident until December or January.
Snyder also addressed questions
regarding the publicity of com-
plaint procedures available for stu-
dents, staff and faculty to express
concerns with the deputized
officers.
Snyder said that the committee
has not received any complaints or
comments about DPSS officer con-
duct, but added he thought this wasO
due to the lack of publicity about
the policy and procedures.
"If people knew they could

BILL
Continued from page 1
would go beyond to establish sig-
nificant new employment law, ac-
cording to attorneys on both sides
of the debate.
Importantly, the legislation es-
tablishes the right to jury trials in
job discrimination cases. It also es-
tablishes that compensatory dam-
ages may be awarded in racial dis-
crimination cases as well as in sex-
ual, age and religious discrimination
cases.

In those areas, plaintiffs until
now have been limited to receive
only back pay.
The bill includes limits or
"caps" on those damages, but those
caps are opposed by women's groups
and many liberals, who promise to
file new legislation to lift them.
But even those limited damages
create new incentives to sue, in the
view of employers' lawyers. They
are "the pot at the end of the rain-
bow," in the words of Larry Lorber,
who is outside counsel to the
Business Roundtable, a group of the
nation's biggest corporations.
