The number of Asian international undergraduate students in U.S. universities is constantly increasing. This significant increase in number impacts universities in regards to its mission statements, administration system, academic atmosphere, and school environment (Andrade, 2008; Bertrand & Lee, 2012; Huang, 2006). The purpose of this literature review is to help administrators and educators in U.S. universities to effectively know the overall academic performance and college life of Asian international students by introducing their learning experiences through demonstrating data and examples from existed studies. Also, this research synthesis provides college administrators and educators with practical strategies to enhance the learning experiences of Asian international undergraduate students through analyses of successful case studies from various universities across the country. Selected research studies from relevant journals reveal that learning experiences of Asian international undergraduate students have a close relationship with the administration of universities and teaching strategies of educators (Constantine, Kindaichi, Okazaki, Gainor, Baden, 2005; Hung & Hyun, 2010).
