Title:CY; Family and future

Study Abroad
CY Student
ANTH390 F07
Abstract:The main purpose of this project is to interview CY students and their families in order to find out the condition for the life of CY students and the relationship with their families along with their CY life. It is very easy to find out how newspapers and other media think about CY students. When I was still in Korea, I could hear about students who go to IVY leagues and good colleges. These students had strong thought to prolong and continue their dream through study abroad. However, sometimes, we hear about students who are having troubles through their CY life. When I was reading this news article, it looked like there are a lot of temptations for students to fall into bad pathways. People assume what would be like for young students to live as a CY student, but we never know. Because of that, I wanted to do this research. I wanted find out what factors drive them to come to United States, and what forced them to prolong this CY life. These interview questions are formed to find out the reality of CY life and focused on how family affect this young student’s CY life.
