Fitchburg State has gone to the India/Persian, Middle eastern students now. I guess it shouldn't be a surprise as tuition fees were raised.

The new upper class dorms on Willow Street houses mostly students from the India descent but again this student housing building is out of the price range for most local middle class students.

I guess it isn't a bad thing but colleges know they can get more money from the India/Persian students so they keep raising their fees but that hurts what a State College University was intended to be for and that was for local middle class students.

yeah, why do you think they changed the name from "College" to "University"?
So they can charge more money!
It isn't about the poor bastards from in-state anymore!

If by "gone to the India/Persian, Middle eastern students now" you mean that the student profile is 80% white you'd be spot on. Follow the link below and hover over the slices to see the % population.

You must have gone to the Kevin Lynch school of pulling stats from your backside school.

Very good point. I have always been happy with my country until you whack jobs start pushing gay stuff, immigration and race. Take the Boston Marathon bombers for instance.'Well they seemed like nice kids so we let them live in our house.'. NO! They were making bombs in your garage you idiots. How does this happen? Do you walk into your garage and say 'wow that looks like a bomb' and the terrorists respond 'No, this is a pressure cooker and we are in the garage trying to reproduce a recipe we saw on Rachel Ray.' Idiot harborer 'Ok but if you need more ball bearings I think there might be some on the shelf.'.

Whenever I fill out paper work I always check the hispanic box and under sex I put gay. Lets be honest, in todays society if you are a gay hispanic you are guaranteed to get free stuff with no questions asked. Just ask Gomez.

I drive through campus every day. See a vast assortment of races/colors represented. But I'd agree with the data I posted vs. the anecdotal evidence you present. I see a majority of white students as I drive through. That's a small sample of data though, that's why it's best to go with the facts.
