From the Publisher:

This book is designed to assist you - the international student, in your plans to pursue their undergraduate studies in America. It is a complete guide on what to expect, and provides step-by-step instructions on how to make your life in America a success.

From the Author:

My first year as an international student was an exciting experience to say the least. I made friends with other international students and my student advisor, with lecturers, learnt about American culture, language, participated in seminars, games, worked on campus, opened my first checking account, got a social security card, but most of all, I felt a part of the college.

After my admission to a new school as a transfer student, and in my conversations with other international students, I learnt that my exciting experience at my first American University was not the norm. Recently, I met a junior, who did not know that she could apply for a work permit as an international student. I then decided to write a book that would give important information to you as an international student, that will enable you to make the right decisions. In the absence of proper mechanisms to take care of international student needs, it is easy to see why so many are falling out of status, or feeling left out all together. My book is written through other international students and my experience in America. I am confident that after reading "Studying in America", that you will be prepared to handle anything that comes your way. Welcome to America!
