Based on the personal experience of upperclassman and previous research, it is common for Chinese students studying abroad to build their own social circle. Most students lack interactions with people from western countries. The following paper a study was conducted to further investigate the reasons for this phenomenon and Chinese students’ attitude towards this situation. Five interviews and ninety-eight surveys were distributed to Chinese students who are studying in United States. The results reveal that a large proportion of them hold the point that making friends depends on various factors, not only their nationalities. We can use this knowledge to help students who attempt to study in a foreign environment adapt to the new setting quickly and adjust their mental conditions better.
