Socialization @ USA
The world is on Internet and so is USA. Once you start indulging in the college life, you will understand that practically everyone is on Internet, emails are the most common and cheap way of communicating, and mostly people prefer using it. Internet is something that will be made available to you, once you enter the college.
Now here is the trick. Although you need to be present on Internet, it does not mean you need to be present only there. you have gone to USA to study and to socialize, to know there culture. Meet new people, understand how things happen around.
Socialization is the most important thing about study abroad. You meet new people, some of them, don’t turn out to be your type, with other you feel as if in home, but then you understand the difference between acquaintances and friends. You learn how to live with different personalities. Schools and colleges at America focus a lot on socialization. They want people to interact with each other, share ideas, create things and enjoy. Most importantly they make sure you develop the “people skills”.
So, yes, there are lot many things to do in USA, you could interact with people using Internet as well. but then remember, this is something you can even do while studying in your home town. Internet is omnipresent these days. When you really are present there, make sure to make real life conversations more, and yet don’t get out of Internet completely. Balance is the key.
