The study identified the profile of the foreign students of Central Philippine University for school year 2013-2014. The researcher made use of a quantitative descriptive research design using a “one shot survey” questionnaire of three parts. A total of 67 foreign students participated in the research to gather the data. The results of the study showed that majority of the respondents are young male Koreans who are taking up Business, Liberal Arts and Communication courses, Christians and are from both first and fourth year levels. As regards their fathers they are self- employed or businessmen, while their mothers are employed. Their monthly income are equal between $1,001- $3,000 and $3,001- $5,000. As regards their hobbies, the respondents enjoy listening to music as their pastime, and for their preferred “best countries” visited, they preferred South Korea as the country to be visited. As regards their travel experiences, they chose experiencing new culture as their most recalled about their travel, remembered the rude or unkind people as their worst experience, remembered food that caused their culture shock, and lack of information was the cause of their experienced difficulty. They also said peoples’ kindness helped them during their travel. They prefer going to developed countries and the US dollar as currency and souvenirs that reflect culture. As regards their CPU experiences, the respondents’ first awareness about the school came from the recommendation of others, considered the students as their best experience, services and system as their worst experience. They had no participation in any club or organization, and considered catching up in class as their experienced barrier. As regards their attitude toward CPU, the respondents expect fairness between Filipinos and foreigners. They considered the standard of education is average and complained about school fees. As regards their future plans, the respondents considered going back home as their impending plan. Their English proficiency is average. Since most of them are Koreans, CPU seems to attract Koreans more than any nationality. Although they are not satisfied with the services, yet, they speak English well. So, overall their experience with CPU is good.
