However, I got many negative feedbacks, such as “Why would you want to live on campus?” and “It costs a lot of money”. Therefore I changed my topic to just persuading the first year students to live on campus, instead of persuading the college. I made this change in the topic because I thought it would be better for the students to make choices for themselves. Again, peer reviewing was a great help because through my classmates, I got to know more about the disadvantage commuters have to face, such as that some commuters waste more than two hours traveling each day to and from school, and because of that, they did not get to study as much as they
There comes a point in every person 's life, where they have to make a choice.This time is graduating from high school.

While that means a dedication to education for those still undergoing their studies, it often means returning to or starting college for adults well over college age. Beginning at roughly age twelve, children of the millennial generation are told to decide what they want in life as early as possible and to commit to at least a college level education; if they do not, they will not be able to succeed.
