The study to be reported in the following pages is an exploratory investigation of the social experiences, adjustments, and attitudes of Iranian students at the Utah State Agricultural College. It was devised as a preliminary, not a terminal, investigation. Two possible avenues of further research were considered when the scope of the study was delimited.

1. A study of the social experience and adjustment of all foreign students in Logan, irrespective of nationality.

2. A study of the social experience and adjustment of Iranian students--in the United States and after their return home--irrespective of school attended in the United States.

Both types of study were prohibitively broad and expensive for the present endeavor. But the present study should not be construed as eliminating the need for either--rather does it demand a follow-up.
