We all have the common interest to come here but, not common degrees, or classes. If it’s different at MSU would it be different everywhere else? In the 1971 Webster Dictionary the last part of the definition reads, or region linked by common interests. In today’s society most people living in a community aren’t linked by common interests. A lot of people have different interests, beliefs, and way they go about living their lives from their neighbors.
Defining Community Before studying the definition of a community, one might associate the word with life back in their hometown. After reading through the definitions of community in numerous dictionaries, it is clear that community is so much more than the place you grow up in. It is interesting that the definition of one word could change so drastically over a decade. According to A Dictionary of American English, (1847) the definition of a community is “a communistic or socialistic society.” Although it isn't hard to identify the idea of each definition, they are extremely different. The definition of community from 1874 mentions communism.
We might even live on the same street, but we grow up in different households and this results in many different views on communities. The many definitions of our community may include our home, our heritage, and even our religion. First, community is our “home.” We have been living in a community ever since we were just little babies and it has always influenced us. Communities have played a big part in who we are today. We start off in school not knowing anyone or anything and as you get older you begin to think about the community and what it means to you.
From the early European settlements in the 1500’s until our present day United States, things have changed dramatically. Some things have changed for the better and some for the worse. Economic and political transformations still continue to change in America today. In today’s America we see a lot of different ethnicities around the states and throughout time immigration has made what America is today. We are known as the land of freedom and opportunity, but the road to where we are now has gone through phases.
Immigration has been a part of our nations core for as long as it began. It is in fact one of the ways to become a citizen of the United States. But, a certain period in our nation’s history caused a lot of hardships for certain individuals from certain nations to have that opportunity. Both historians, Ira Berlin and Mae Ngai, refer to major changes in immigration policy when the Johnson-Reed act was replaced in 1965. Since the end of the Johnson Reed Act in 1965, new immigrants are now coming into this country from all over the globe, discovering their own ways on how to contribute to America’s identity, but also dealing with homeland American attitudes about their races.
BEGINNING OF BODY “America was built by immigrants.” From Plymouth Rock in the 17th century to Ellis Island in the 20th century, people from every corner of the earth have come to America. Immigrants left their home countries for various reasons. Some were fleeing religious persecution and political turmoil. Most, however, came for economic reasons and were part of extensive migratory systems that responded to changing demands in labor markets. The American economy needed both skilled and unskilled workers through much of the 19th century.
Over the years immigration as evolved into a more sophisticated matter. There are many laws they have been put in place to monitor and stop immigration.

The authors of this time tried to change the writing style by changing the themes. A new theme arose called socioeconomic, which highlights the difference between the rich and the poor class (Realism 661). Many of the realist authors addressed social, economical, and political concerns through their depictions of socioeconomic class conflict (Rahn). Many of the writings which are set to the theme of socioeconomic where mainly based in the city, although a few authors set their novels to a less upbeat country setting. Throughout the novels, and plays, authors depict various aspects of life in the rapidly industrializing world, yet most are set in the midst of specific historical events during the 18th and the 19th centuries (Realism 661).
All the economic changes of the Neolithic and Industrial Revolutions brought many societal changes with them. When people settled down in the Neolithic Revolution, they put down there own roots (not just the plant kind), this meant they needed a structure that was different than they'd had when they were nomadic.
