Part of the college experience is about meeting people, making friends; but even this isn’t for everybody. If anyone even tries to go to a school that is outside their socioeconomic class than they are at such a large disadvantage for making friends with anyone. Bobby Allyn wrote an article about his experience as a working class man going to a very prestigious college. Allyn says in his article, “College is supposed to be a time of self-reinvention, when students discover who they are and decide on career paths. But for me, it has been a time of social readjustment.” When it come to the social aspect of College, students are forced to stick to their social class which is a complete dice roll for if the College selection is good or not.
This was my most important reason for coming to America, but I was afraid I was never going to happen. I applied for admission to another university when I came, but after five months of studying English they denied my acceptance so I had to find another university. Finally, when I finished the university I received my acceptance to MTSU. Although this was not my first choice I am glad I came because the university has good teachers and fun classes in my major. Coming to America was my answer to what I wanted to do after high school.
While education can open doors to your life, having the initiative to be successful is what really counts.

Here Esperanza is very excited about her new house but when she actually looked at the house, she was disappointed. Esperanza was expecting too much of her family and what they could afford. Her family only got to this house because her father won money with a lottery ticket.
I was raised in a city of two realities; I grew up in Baltimore. My parents immigrated from the Netherlands a year before I was born to pursue opportunity in the United States. My sister and I attended a private Quaker school because my parents could afford it. On one hand, there is a Baltimore presented by the TV show “The Wire,” on the other you have my reality. As a white, upper-class, male I haven't had to overcome any significant obstacles to follow my dreams.
When it comes to my personal goals I have long-term and short-term goals, as a long term goal I want to have the opportunity to invest in fliping houses as a job to save money for the future. As far as short-term goals I want to save up money for a short period of time to make me a responsibile adult and It would also help me pay for my college funds and the insurance on my car.

Before I began looking for colleges Syracuse to me was just a school with a really good Basketball team. But, I didn 't become interested in Syracuse University as a school until when I first started looking for colleges of my liking. Throughout my search for colleges, Syracuse was a school that stuck, it had everything I was looking for: top of the line education as well as a great business program in the Whitman School of Management. Sparked by my interest in Syracuse I prompted my guidance counselor to plan a trip to visit while in my junior year. When I visited the college I first noticed how gorgeous the campus was.
Around June 2009 when I finished High School, I had no clue as to what I wanted to pursue next in my life. College was something that I never even thought about doing. In school, I would do what I had to do to get by, and that was it. Teachers liked me because I’m a friendly guy (and not to mention I had 5 other siblings attend the same school). After graduation I decided it was time for me to start doing something productive with my life, so I decided to get a job at a Dollar Tree.
Which helped them get successful and gave them a better quality of life. My grand uncle wanted a really good education, and have a better quality of life in the states then that he would ever have in India.

He came on a cargo ship from Australia from studying there for a couple of years.
