College was a chance and opportunity for higher learning discoveries of McCandless’ strengths and weaknesses. Attending Emory University and receiving exemplary grades was another achievement that he was able to do on his own, “His grades were nearly perfect” (136). If McCandless was indeed insane, he would not have been able to receive the grades he did, he had to follow the rules and not be an outcast.
For a lot of student athletes sports are the only thing that they rely on as an opportunity to make a better life for themselves. Many student athletes come from poor families that have a low graduation rate. As they grow up, they realize the outstanding athletic gifts they have and use their potential to get noticed by colleges, thus receiving a scholarship.Jabrill Peppers is one of the best players in college football, he was nominated for the heisman trophy this year. What a lot of people don't know is that he grew up in a harmful environment, always waking up in the morning having the thought of if he was going to live to see tomorrow.

I also closed a partnership with EOPS, one of the school 's programs that provides support for disadvantaged students. This partnership provides an opportunity for students who achieve excellence in academics to join an internationally recognize honor society, which they might have not been able to afford on their own due to their economic situation. As an individual who understands the struggle of a low income family, I am delighted to provide this opportunity for those who qualify. I hope this is only the beginning of what I can offer for Phi Theta Kappa and my
Factory jobs and other blue-collar jobs keep the working college student performing well in college to get out of those blue-collar jobs. The author supports all of his key points lightly, but effectively. While only barely giving examples, he illustrates why the factory job life has pushed him to do well in college. He has used his personal experiences to press him in his classes versus the experiences of his classmates that work mainly retail or restaurant jobs. The author has become more humble through his working experiences and uses it to better his education.
And I feel that the scholarship has kept its promise to help minority students reduce the loans and debt that they will have in the near future. They also are helping minorities to have a chance to change the world, what I mean by that is that because it’s so much money to go to colleges without having scholarships, having this scholarship gives them the opportunity to compete with the best of the best and show the world what minorities can do. This scholarship program to me is effective in helping the leadership and the growth of younger students and helping them achieve the goals that would not have been an
In some ways, it can help put an end to racism, it shows the contributions African Americans have made throughout America’s history. These are beneficial things to students and can make schools a place where all children can feel valued, appreciated and safe. It is hard for students to learn in a place where they feel unvalued, unappreciated, and unsafe, their focus is outside of schools, but teaching black history may have a positive impact on students not just during black history month, but all year
My semester here at USC has been a smooth transition however I have overcame challenges. Being an only child I 've become comfortable with doing things on my own and not being open to working with others. Not realizing this would hinder my way of learning I was not always one to study in groups but deciding to try it out this semester proved to produce tremendous outcomes! Through my first semester here at USC I found that I benefit more from studying in groups and that I retain the information a lot better than if I were to study alone. This semester, I 've also had to come to terms with the reality of the college work load.
For Marguerite and the community, this graduation was a great deal and accomplishment for their community and blacks as a race. The graduation is important because education was very precious to blacks at the time because they had been denied the right to learn in slavery times, and now that they were free they wanted the rights as a human being to be free and do as they wanted. They knew that with an education they could break down walls that were built against
Obama continues her historical account as she describes the travail and bravery that a few people possessed that led them to afford educational opportunities for black people even when “Teachers received death threats.” (289). She evokes these historical events, not only to show the stark difference between the past and present with regards to educational opportunities for African Americans, but also demonstrate how the people who fought tirelessly so that they could gain an education did so because of they were aware of the value of education as it brings freedom and opportunity to those who have it. To bolster this assertion, Obama quotes Fredrick Douglas, “Freedom is Emancipation” (289) Obama details even further as she
This information is also important to know because though I 'm a freshman small classrooms are great to have because its awesome for teachers/ professors to be one on one with the student.

I strongly feel that Gatton Academy is the right place for me to finish high school. At my high school, I’ve struggled with lacking curriculum and instruction, with little to no challenge provided for me. Gatton Academy will be able to provide me with the tools and resources I need to excel to the best of my abilities. Not only will Gatton provide rigorous coursework, but it will help prepare me even more so for life as an adult. The extended freedoms that come with living away from home – on a college campus, no less – are something that many people would consider taking advantage of.
