I have to try for several courses that is related to more than one major. This should able to help me pick my major. Honestly, I don’t know what I want to be in the future but for sure I know I want to be happy so I don’t care how much I’m getting paid as long I’m still getting paid. 6. My big question is that I want to ask my academic advisor, how can I graduate in four years?
When students take more dual enrollment courses, it becomes trouble-free to enter into life after college because it gives “first-hand exposure to the requirements of college-level work while gaining high school and college credit simultaneously” (Bailey et al. 8). Students who have secured their future with classes before college are more likely to be prepared in college and going into the real world. Not only will educational classes help the students, but also a variety of elective
Small classes will allow me to have individual learning from my professors. Small classes typically focus more on involvement through discussion and allow students to learn in a collaborating style that is typically not available at a large university. Working individually with professors will allow me to receive constructive criticism which will strengthen my skills and prepare me for a four-year university. High school graduates who are unsure of what they want to study or intimated by the idea of a university may find community college to be an easier transition. Community college is a place to start fresh.
I have been a member of an honors program since the end of my freshman year of high school. The time I spent in the honors program in highschool compared to the honors classes I took at Tulsa Community College (TCC) showed me how limited my original view of a honors program was. I initially knew the importance that was behind the title of a honors program, which is the reason I joined. However, my membership, in my opinion, was basically through name only. I did not have to challenge myself much to be a member.
High school graduates are starting to feel that they must go to college. Students are consistently being bombarded with different ideas of what to do after high school, most of which require some type of schooling or degree. Instructors and counselors commonly persuade students to think that we only have one option to be successful with a college degree. College might not be for everyone! From my research, I found many articles on reasons why people go to college, reasons they do not go to college, and statistics on going and not going to college.
However, there is still much to be done. As a sophomore in college without any idea about what my future holds, I think that I would like to be a part of this movement in one way or another, so I am majoring in Diversity & Community Studies. Before doing the I-Search, I knew a little bit about the Diversity & Community Studies major. This major has the potential to lead to many different jobs, most of which seem to serve the community or society in some way. I also knew about some of the classes that are required for completion, such as a class called Public Problem-Solving that I am in this semester.
I’ve seen students struggle with being literate and numerate so I’m not even sure they could begin to concern themselves with becoming competent in STEM fields during high school. It would seem that educators might be more helpful to encourage students to use high school to build a breadth of knowledge in many different areas, knowing that college will be the time to build depth. High school could be used to develop the basics and apply elements from many, non-science fields to their work similar to a liberal arts approach. Providing students with a broad-based high school foundation before entering college would help develop them into well-rounded students prepared for whichever program they choose whether it’s a STEM program or not.
The first being having some experience with HR. Although this is asked for very rarely, I hope to increase my knowledge in HR by taking a small 3 week course in the summer. I also plan on reading as much as I can on the topic from the university’s library to gain more knowledge. Another skill that I lack having complete knowledge about the law. Having a little knowledge about the law and some laws that are in the country is not going to work and while this job doesn’t necessarily ask for a degree, having knowledge about the law is very important.
Sophmore year was an awakening for me. It was the year that I could apply to college classes at George Washington University. Taking classes at GW was my ultimate reason for going to School Without Walls high school. I desperately wanted to graduate with an Associates degree. I wanted to be able to show that I was capable of handling college assignments and that I could reedem myself.
There are numerous community colleges across the nation, and several undergraduates attend community colleges every year. With an enormous amount of undergraduates attending community colleges, society as a whole should want the colleges to be in the best conditions to educate our future members of society. However, most community colleges are failing to provide the best conditions possible for their students. Community colleges are failing to properly educate their students, and because education is a valuable aspect of the American society, community colleges should be refined to produce knowledgeable citizens of the United States of America. Community colleges require some students to take remedial classes due to low standardized test
