Part of the college experience is about meeting people, making friends; but even this isn’t for everybody. If anyone even tries to go to a school that is outside their socioeconomic class than they are at such a large disadvantage for making friends with anyone. Bobby Allyn wrote an article about his experience as a working class man going to a very prestigious college. Allyn says in his article, “College is supposed to be a time of self-reinvention, when students discover who they are and decide on career paths. But for me, it has been a time of social readjustment.” When it come to the social aspect of College, students are forced to stick to their social class which is a complete dice roll for if the College selection is good or not.

Low high school grades or SAT or ACT scores will not carry as much weight when applying to a four-year university if you do well as community college. Taking developmental classes, such as lower-level math, science, or English courses, can make up for poor grades you received in high school. Admissions counselors at four-year universities like to see you overcome your problems and bettering
As students go through high school, many start thinking about their future after school. Some students choose to get a full-time job after graduation to begin earning money instead of going to college. Some people join the military.

“One reason graduate school debt has grown is that students have nearly unlimited borrowing capability from federal programs — with few credit checks or examinations of ability to repay…” (The Washington Post). Students use the loans unknowing what pay they will get from their future job. By setting a student loan cap, students would take less of a risk with coming back from
Senior year should be built around classes that will benefit them in the long run, instead of taking classes that they do not need. For example, you do not have to go to college to be a contractor, but you do need a highschool diploma. Which means that you could take classes that would be better for you in the future, Like construction classes, math classes that are just for contracting commodities. On the other hand, some students that do want to pursue a degree in college, can take classes based on their said classes. Usually, seniors are not the ones making dinner, doing taxes, laundry or going grocery shopping.
Do you remember your first day of college? The day when you asked to yourself how you will succeed in getting your diploma? Maybe the next days were terrible and it was normal: because it was your time that you lived alone, you did not how to cook, how to do your own laundry, you called your mom every two hours… You were not responsible. Imagine if your school had taught you how to do it?
1 Many kids graduate school wondering what college they want to go to and if they want to spend so much money on it. Though some people think that college isn’t worth it I’d like to respectfully disagree. I think that college is worth it. The evidence I have behind my reasoning is that people with a diploma that are not going to college won’t be able to experience amazing social gatherings than people with a degree, and people with a diploma make less money than people with a degree.
“An important pathway to the middle class now runs through higher education, but rising costs are making it harder and harder for ordinary Americans to get the education they want and need” ( Sanders). Many student who’s families can not easily afford the cost of college often do not further their education after high school. Students that know that their family struggles with money already don’t want to ask for more so that they can go to college. As the cost of college has been on the rise many have talked about wanting to provide students with a free college education. Many bring up that the states grant their students with free public education till they complete the twelfth grade.
They are those who believe a community college is not the best place to receive a higher education. The belief is that community colleges cannot provide the same level of education as most four year colleges. People who support this belief say that a two year college is too easy and would not make a student become competitive in the job market. At most, four year colleges the first two years are design for the student to take prerequisites that could be attain at a community college and help the student decide which direction or to career path to take.
I graduated back in 2013 from a pretty decent school district. During high school I wasn’t an A student or a B student, I just did what I needed in order to pass. Once I got to my junior of high school I started taking things more seriously, I started making A’s and B’s. Once my senior year started the pressure was on. Everyone asking “what college are you thinking about attending?”
My most significant endeavor since attending community college would be helping my community to receive an Adult Daycare. Thought this endeavorer I have applied my knowledge that I have learned about the disease to educate others in my community who may not have to know the impact of it. I have also used and sought the aid of my relationship that I have built by being at my community college. This Adult Daycare service or Coltrane LIFE center is something that I am passionate about having in my hometown. My grandpa has Alzheimer's and I have seen the stress that tolls on the family and caregiver.
I first heard of the Trailblazer Collegiate Academy during my freshman year enrollment. The idea of taking college classes at a community college while still in high school was appealing to me because my current coursework took no effort to complete and I wanted a challenge. Once I was a sophomore, I began looking into it more seriously. If I wanted to apply for the Academy, I had a short window of time to do so. After discussing it with my counselor I learned that my classes I took with the community college would factor into my GPA at the high school level.
When I was in high school, my grade-point average was a measly 2.3. I did poorly on my SAT scores, so my only option was to apply to a community college. I was thankful to be admitted to Ohlone College, as my grade point average is now a 3.4. In retrospect, I realized that my success in community college was because of: hard work, dedication, and continuous growth. Freshmen year of college, I took a psychology class.
