It is quite shocking for students in college to talk about their parents with no respect. Bell Hooks, a southern black girl from a working-class background in Kentucky, who has never rode on a city bus, or even an escalator, explains her feelings about going away for college in Keeping Close to Home: Class and Education. She took her first plane ride to Stanford University where she received her bachelor’s degree. She examines and challenges intertwined assumptions about race, class, and academia. She is credible in using ethos by giving her personal experience as an undergraduate at Stanford, and educational background about leaving home and how being underprivileged at a university where most people are privileged can cause one to think hard about the decision they have made.
Fifty-two chapters, thousands of girls, timeless friendships through sisterhood, one big family. I’ve always known that I wanted to move away from home for greater opportunities and experiences. Although my parents were very optimistic about my decisions and the route I chose, it was difficult to leave home. The five-hour flight alone, the lonesome nights without my family, the horrifying first day speeches and upperclassmen, having no car to get around, and maybe the possibility of not liking your dorm roommates.
Furthermore, in an article made by Unigo, a online student college database that acquires more than 1.6 million student members, titled, “There's no place like home: in-state vs out-of-state colleges,” it is emphasized that, “Unfortunately, living at home (or close by) can also make it easier for you stay within your comfort zone, limiting your opportunities to meet new people and try new things” (Williams par. 3). In-state colleges
"You all have a little bit of 'I want to save the world ' in you," Anonymous. A few weeks ago, I came across this quote and it has stuck with me since then, as I believe it perfectly encapsulates my desire to attend Gatton Academy. I undoubtedly have a little bit of "I want to save the world in me," but I think that in order to help save the world, I first need to learn more about our planet and its inhabitants. With the Academy 's study abroad opportunities, I could begin to explore the world and come to understand more of its variety and needs. To me, saving the world necessitates learning about math and science.

In the podcast “Lower Income, Higher Ed” NPR reporter Cuvvy Perpaterson ( I believe that’s what she said) discussed the issues high school students in D.C. face while applying and attending University. Perpaterson describes her interaction with one teenager; Christopher. He is a first-generation college student. “Christopher grew up in one of the poorest parts of Washington, D.C. He and his mother went through frequent bouts of homelessness when he went to high school — often staying in shelters.”
Starting a new life away from home can be difficult. Many young adults experience this every year when they decide to go away to college. It is obvious to say that around that age is when young adults start getting to know themselves, and start acquiring better understanding of what they want from life. I am currently going through my first year of college, I can relate to the new lifestyle I started having when I came to CSUCI, but I have also seen many things that has made me learn from other people’s experiences. I wrote a letter pretending to be a worried mother as my project number two for my English 102 class last semester.

My freshmen year at Indiana University was very much of a surprise for me personally. I learned several things about myself as an individual and what I want to do with my time at Indiana University. Bloomington is a buzzing college town that always has something going on. Most people associate Bloomington with Indiana University and never really look past that. My first few months on campus I never looked past the image of Bloomington as a college town but when I did it changed what I wanted to do with my time on campus.
However, my demeanor may be a disadvantage if I were to be working with another population or in a different setting. For example, I do not think be successful in jobs at prisons or alternative schools because I may have to be more serious and assertive with my clients. Throughout my life, education has always been one of the most important aspects of my life and I believe my academic achievements demonstrate this. Over the past three years in college, I have maintained over a 3.9 GPA and put much effort into excelling in classes from various departments across campus, but particularly within the
