Create your own college!

SAN JOSE, Calif. With his new student visa, Prasanth Goinaka was on a path toward his dream: an MBA from an American university in the heart of Silicon Valley.
That’s why his parents back in India were stunned when their 28-year-old son was killed while manning a cash register at a convenience store in Oklahoma City – 1,500 miles from campus.
A Bay Area News Group investigation has found that Goinaka – as well as thousands of other foreign students enrolled in schools here – probably should not have been in the country at all. They’re being lured by unaccredited universities that promise help getting a prized student visa. But it turns out that these universities’ legal right to assist with visas is in question.
This is definitely a sad story. Maybe we should distribute millions of copies of “Accepted” as a warning to hopeful foreign students. If a US college looks to good to be true, be careful. You could end up at the South Harmon Institute of Technology.
