Tips for foreign students!
Getting into top-rated universities or the Ivy League ones is a dream for us all and for foreign students who travel from far and wide for the exposure to great colleges with famous professors and teachers, the pressure is much more. Often language, cultural ethnicity, and other factors makes it difficult to fit in. However, there are a few things that can help…
- Build an online presence, have a blog or a website
- Being active on social networking sites can often help to rise up from alienation and break the ice among peers.
- Pursue your artistic pursuits and take part in sports, all this works wonders for foreign students.
- Find mentors among students of your ethnicity and team up with them for other group activities.
I know of several mentors having helped freshers get the best of scholarships available by presenting papers and other research documents.
When it comes to colleges, it all really boils down to networking; exactly the reason why Facebook got popular, so what are you waiting for?
