I want to congratulate all the students in China who have received offers of admission from one of the over 4,700 colleges and universities in the United States. As a former university president myself, I can tell you with confidence that studying in the United States will be an experience that will change your life.
For you and your families here in China, there is no better investment for your future than getting an American education. You will learn to think critically and to be innovative. You will be able to perfect your English. You will make contacts and develop job skills that will shape your career for decades to come. And perhaps most important, you will learn what it takes to operate successfully in the world’s two largest economies - the United States and China.
I admire the sacrifices you and your families made to get to this point. Graduates of U.S. universities have gone on to become leaders and innovators in many fields around the world, and you should be proud of the invitation to join this special and select group of young people whose lives will be changed forever by the dynamism, openness, and quality of campuses across the United States.
Offers of admission are the product of much careful thought and hard work, both by the students who apply and by American colleges and universities that conduct a rigorous review of these applications. We recognize the energy and creativity you poured into essays about your dreams and ideas, the hard work it took to prepare for English language and other examinations, and the commitments you fulfilled to community service and extra-curricular interests.
Over one million international students are now in U.S. higher education institutions, maintaining the United States’ long-standing position as the world’s top host nation for international students. This is a testament to the unmatched quality of American higher education in the eyes of international students and their families.
International students strengthen ties between the United States and countries around the world, developing the relationships between people and communities that are necessary to solve global challenges. We value inclusion, and actively support students from diverse backgrounds on our campuses. Colleges and universities across the United States value international students for the unique and diverse perspectives you provide both in and out of the classroom. American universities and communities benefit from the knowledge and talents of international students, which helps prepare all of us for shared, successful futures in an interconnected world.
U.S. colleges and universities take pride in providing safe, welcoming environments for all their students. My advice to you is simple. Take the time to become a part of your community when you get there. Make new friends from around the world. Get to know some local families. Explore the town or city where you live. The college experience in the United States is about more than just our classrooms. It’s also about the diversity of our nation and our local communities. I know if you make the effort to get to know them, you will be welcomed with open arms.
