For Some Foreign Students, U.S. Education Is Losing Its Attraction
The New York Times
Each fall, thousands of students from South Korea arrive on American campuses. They come from a culture that views education as the key to success, where mothers and fathers save to send their children overseas. On top of tuition, parents shell out for test prep and cram schools, supplemental English lessons and recruitment agents to shepherd them through an unfamiliar admissions process. In the past, only a small elite pursued advanced degrees internationally; today, many sons and daughters of the nation's emergent middle class go abroad.

Follow Security Tips to Stay Safe On Campus As An International Student
U.S. News & World Report
It's important to be aware of your safety whenever you're in an unfamiliar place, and while moving to America may have already made many international students sensitive to their surroundings, being conscious of your safety on campus is particularly important. Although your college campus is most likely to feel like both the social hub and the safe space of your college experience, many college campuses are open and easily accessible by the public. Theft or other small crimes can be quite common, so it's important that international students learn to be security-savvy while on campus.
