Like the beginnings of most establishments, problems existed. Historian Whitfield Bell Jr., highlights some of the issues that existed within the school. Whitfield wrote that the first batch of teachers at the school was questionable. He
Additionally, each interview in the journal article reported on each interview that allowed for a framework between them all to be established. However, this article had limitations within privacy and confidentially of participants who could only provide limited information in relation to what they reflect on, this restricting the data.

In Kurt Wisenfeld’s article called Making the Grade, he talks about the importance of judging or grading a student’s work by performance rather than judging or giving them the grade by the student’s effort or potential. In the article written by Carolyn Foster Segal called The Dog Ate My Disk, and other Tales of Woe, she writes about the many excuses students have to tell her when they cannot meet a deadline for one of her assignments. Both of the authors are professors in a college, so both have had many experience with students their many excuses. The problem with a lot of students in college is that they do not take advantage of the knowledge they can take from the classes they take.
In the essay “Choosing a College Major: For Love or for the Money”, the author David Keppel states that because of today’s living economic conditions, college students have a hard time choosing between a major that they patient about, or a major that will get them more money in the future. Moreover, a lot of graduate students regret picking a major based on their interests instead of salary, according to the author. Therefore, the author believes it’s more critical than ever to decide what major a student should pursue, to help him/her pay student loans and live decently. However, the author mentions that picking a major that satisfy a personal interests can help creating opportunities for creativity and self-steam even thought if it doesn’t
Several college students deal with monetary obstacles every week. They have to deal with college books, meals, and dorms or apartments before they can even think about having any money left over for fun activities. College books, meals, and having a place to stay are all monetary obstacles because college students have to make tough decisions to get over these humps. Such as if they should choose a cheap apartment so they can have extra money for fun and risk having bad off campus living experience or choose a moderate to expensive apartment for a good off campus living experience but risk having potentially no money for fun at all.
A college education is a necessity in our society today and the ever rising cost of college tuition is a problem everyone has to deal with, because it does not just affect students, it affects everyone. The high cost of tuition has economic, social, and national ramifications. These ramifications affect America as a nation, and each and every citizen who lives there. The trouble with tuition is tuition causes a lot of trouble for everyone.
There have been arguments on whether college writing should be a mandatory class for college students. Better grammar and better communication skills are just a few reasons why college writing is an important class for students and should be made mandatory across the United States of America. In society today many people don’t see the bigger picture and they settle for “good”, but they shouldn’t only focus on how good something is but how it can be improved and made better. I believe that practicing writing forces you to always try to improve and that could potentially help our country economy and help us grow intellectually. Some student argue that college writing is very similar to high school writing and that’s why they think it is unnecessary to take a writing class in college.
A college degree has become an essential to any possibility of getting into most jobs. Unfortunately, tuition fees are rising significantly and this is creating a barrier for the less fortunate students to pursue their dream jobs. All governments need to do what it takes to reduce the cost of university tuition as
The expense of tuition is continuously on the rise but also the amount of accessible monetary aid choices. The worldwide financial system is becoming gradually more and more competitive, and to give yourself the most excellent possibility for a good salary job and a good healthy life, the importance of college education must first be
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
Gary Gutting and Mark Edmundson the authors of the essays “What is College For?” and “On the Uses of a Liberal Education” respectively expressed their opinions on how college isn’t what it used to be. Gutting said some universities don’t teach what they are supposed to; they make some classes compulsory so students end up taking classes that are unnecessary. In result when students are given these particular courses as they become disinterested and aim for average instead of learning the material. Gutting also points out lack of academic engagement is why people misinterpret the existence of the college.
To not know what you are getting yourself into can be scary and Payback offers a way to give insight on that. On the article written by Mike Patton, he talks about the rise of paying for an education compared to the general inflation and healthcare. The cost
I agree with this article. For-profit colleges help people in their education in a lot of different ways. However, many people earn a degree to get a job. If the debt that they procure while doing so is more money than that which the degree can help pay off, that degree will have lost its meaning. Andrew Hacker and Claudia Dreifus support this argument in their article “Are Colleges Worth the Price of Admission?”
Andrew Hacker and Claudia Dreifus explain that the well known colleges are getting all the money. That just doesn 't seem fair to me that certain colleges are getting more money than other colleges. I understand that some colleges are big and might need it to pay the teacher and other resources , but the extra money for big
Delbanco explains how students have changed their reasons for attending a college when he states, “...yet on the assumption that immersing themselves in learning for the sheer joy of it, with the aim of deepening their understanding of culture, nature, and, ultimately, themselves, is a vain indulgence” (222). Secondary education has become too expensive for learning to be an indulgence. Students only go to college to get a degree in order to gain a high paying career. Davidson explains how dire the situation with low paying job is by saying how the process should work, “Only through productivity growth can the average quality of human life improve” (339). Unfortunately, the productivity growth only leaves a bigger pay gap.
