    The present paper examines the cultural orientation of foreign students who secured admission in Osmania University (Andhra Pradesh, India) in terms of time orientation and event orientation, dichotomist and holistic thinking, crisis and non-crisis orientation, task and person orientation, status and achievement focus, and concealment of vulnerability and willingness to expose vulnerability. The study is based on a sample of 101 students. These orientations were between Africans and Asians. The study revealed that Africans are more crisis-oriented and dichotomistic in their thinking. Their orientation towards completing tasks and not wanting to expose their vulnerability is prominent. On the other hand, Asians have proven to be more event and person orientated, as also more holistic in their thinking. The discriminant analysis reveals that Asians, Africans and others are differentiate on one major cultural variables viz., Task orientation.
