Summary - 2001-09-10


American Mosaic has been broadcasting a series of reports for foreign students who want to attend college in the United States. This is the final program in this series.

We hope these reports helped students think about their goals and provided ways to reach them.

We explained the kinds of colleges and universities in the United States, how to get information about them and how to apply for admission. We discussed admissions tests and how to prepare for them. We reported about the high cost of attending an American university and told about possible places to seek financial aid. We talked about the legal documents that are needed before a student can travel to the United States to attend college. We also discussed the possibility of using the computer to take classes at an American college without leaving home.

In other programs, we told about some American colleges that are not so well known. Landmark College, for example, teaches students with learning disabilities. The Citadel provides a military education. Johnson and Wales University offers business studies. We also provided information about community colleges, agricultural colleges and the Masters of Business Administration degree.

We would like to thank everyone who wrote to us asking questions that were used in this series. They helped us explain subjects we had not considered. For example, we explained about the need for student health insurance. We reported about working as a teaching assistant. We discussed dormitory life. And we told the difference between an American college and a university.

We hope you will continue to listen to American Mosaic for reports about American life and other information about American colleges. In about two years, we will broadcast this series again to provide new information. By then, another group of students will be looking for information about attending college in the United States.
