USA Life and Culture

In its beginnings, the United States was founded by immigrants from Western Europe alongside indigenous peoples. A continuous stream of immigrants from around the world has seen the United States grow into a large and diverse country where virtually all nationalities and ethnicities are represented. One can find every type of climate and landscape in addition to different lifestyles and cultures in USA.

American mainstream culture is extremely diverse and complex, and varies from one geographical region to the next, between rural and urban areas, and can be particularly influenced by the ethnic communities found in each region. American culture encompasses traditions, ideals, customs, beliefs, values, arts, and innovations developed both domestically and imported via colonization and immigration from the British Isles.

Among developed countries, the US is one of the most religious in terms of its demographics. American contemporary music can be heard all over the world and American popular music also contains many styles of music that developed in the US.

Sports in the United States are an important part of the American culture. However, the sporting culture of the U.S. is unique from that of many other countries. Compared to any other nation, American preferences for sports differ from the rest of the world. Baseball is the oldest of the major American team sports. American football, Basketball, Ice hockey and quick martial arts are other common sports.

Homecoming is an annual tradition of the United States. People, towns, high schools and colleges come together, usually in late September or early October, to welcome back former residents and alumni.

Today, regardless of one's ethnic, religious or social background, American culture values individuality, where independence and self-reliance are taught from a young age, competitiveness is encouraged and achievement praised.

USA Education

The sheer number of world-class institutes of higher learning is one of the key factors that has made the US the premiere destination for Bangladeshi students from all over the world. The reputation of American universities coupled with the comprehensive curriculum offered at these institutions is valued by students. Another major reason that draws international students in large numbers to study in the US is the array of courses on offer: from highly academic programs like nuclear physics to very creative courses like art and film direction.

The vast majority of students (up to 70 percent) lacks the financial resources to pay tuition up front and must rely on student loans and scholarships from their university, the federal government, or a private lender. All but a few charity institutions cover all of the students' tuition, although scholarships (both merit-based and need-based) are widely available. Generally, private universities charge much higher tuition than their public counterparts, which rely on state funds to make up the difference. Because each state supports its own university system with state taxes, most public universities charge much higher rates for out-of-state students.

The qualifications and credentials earned by studying in US colleges and universities are recognized in every part of the world. Traditionally securing top positions on global university ranking lists are the Ivy League institutions, eight private institutions located in the north-eastern part of the US, as well as other top American institutions like MIT, University of California and Stanford, among others.
