Visit the campus of any top American university, like the University of California, Berkley, you can see the striking racial diversity. Partly, it is a reflection of America’s diversity but it also reflects the desire of ambitious students from around the world for an American education. More than 690,000 students came to the United States to study this past year. Nearly 105,000 of those came from India and nearly 128,000 came from China.
Foreign students often excel earning more than half of all the Doctorates awarded by American Universities in Math, Computer Sciences and Engineering. America is known as the land of immigrants and always brought in the best of people from all over the world . This immigrant story has been the same for centuries. Many only bought one way tickets here. There was never an option of going back home even in colonial days because this was the only land of opportunity. If you studied in America, you stayed in America.
