Adam Toth was the subject of a story in the 20th volume of CROSSROADS, a publication created by students in Mansfield’s Magazine Writing and Production class. The story described how an international student got adapted to the MU academic study and campus life.
Upon arriving at any university, many students are unaware of what to expect in their first year, but imagine coming from a different country altogether. Foreign students deal with language, educational and cultural differences, on top of school work. The experience, for them, can lead to a unique kind of personal growth. The number of international students is growing in the United States. When these international students arrive many have their own unique concerns: homesickness, which reaches beyond American borders, and language differences that are constant reminders of living in a foreign land. You can’t always put your finger on what exactly is different about being here, but you can sense it.
For sophomore, Adam Toth, who majors in business administration, is among many of the international students who come to Mansfield. He grew up in middle Europe, in Hungary (not hungry) in the capital city, Budapest.
Not only is Adam an international student here, but he also takes part in the Mounties Men’s Basketball team. Adam has been playing basketball since he was ten years old. Since this past season, when he joined the Men’s Basketball Team, he was asked if it was different playing here than in Budapest. “It’s totally different than European Basketball,” he stated. He also admits that he has gotten stronger and a bit tougher since joining the Mountaineers. “I go hard on myself; I shoot in the mornings if I’m healthy and when I don’t have classes.”
