This article brings to light need for guidance that international students must obtain in order to conform to the mission statements of higher educational institutions cross-cultural Integration through suitable learning environments and aiding student to succeed in obtaining a higher education is a fundamental requirement of every educational institution,(Delbanco, 2012) but the quality of American higher education since the growth of student campuses is questionable. Using academic journal articles from the Journal of College Student Development, The Journal of Higher Education, and texts from Andrew Delbanco’s College: What it was, and what is should be, I will determine why there needs to be more meaningful guidance for students transferring into a new college atmosphere. During the 20th century, national reports began to raise the case of providing non-individual and passive environments on campuses, which could not help students in learning (Kezar & Kinzie, 2006). Furthermore, the colleges failed to assist in the social or academic collaboration of international students, or promote a mixture among international students and American students. Lacking an appropriate setting that motivates learning and development, the future of both students as individuals and the academic community is uncertain.

After high school is a new world, many students are on their own to get a chance to form their own life. Students must work hard to prepare themselves for the real world after high school because that is where it becomes more difficult which is why they should attend and work hard in college to have a secure future. Without college many people will have a hard time trying to get by in this world. Choosing to go to college will definitely benefit students because they will be able to strengthen their skills needed for their chosen career path and have more opportunities in life that will give a better chance of surviving in today's fast paced world. As the saying goes, “practice makes perfect,” it is essentially the same when it comes to a certain job.
