Poverty does have many effects such as;embarrassment,depression, and fatigued. People in poverty may be embarrassed to seek assistance. Often college students live in their cars, campus buildings, or on their friends’ couches or even floors to hide the fact they live in poverty. Most individuals are scared to tell their parents and don’t want the pity. They’re afraid their own parents will disapprove and be upset.
Julia Lurie, a reporter for Mother Jones and a person who 's dealt with depression throughout college, claims that depression and anxiety is far too common amongst college students and as a society we are silent about it. There are many who believe that silence will only increase this issue, while others believe that mental health issues should be dealt within privacy. This is a controversy because anxiety and depression in colleges has increased significantly in this past decade and colleges aren 't doing enough about this issue. Lurie begins by giving a scenario about a girl who spends her time at “Starbucks or Book Trader Café working on her papers,” (par.1). She 's explains that the girl seems perfect on the outside, who looks like she knows all the answers, but “she 's constantly
Grade inflation is something that people are starting to become more and more worried about throughout student college and their academics within America. Grade inflation is calming that students are receiving higher grades for simpler work or lesser of quality that students are submitting. Basically meaning a B+ in todays colleges would equal a C back when my parents came to college. in the 1980’s. Even though I personally do believe that grade inflation is a real thing within our colleges depending on the institution, I personally do not think it is a major issue or we should be concerned how it effects our businesses and master programs once these students graduate.
Crate and stick to a study schedule, is a common goal among college students. However, being disorganized is not helpful for me to start this semester. I would sprite study time from any other things that could distract my attention. furthermore, I would like to be involved by joining a club or organization at the campus, and that can help me to learn more and
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. I believe that the students who believe college writing is exactly like high school writing are wrong because writing expectations are different in college. For some students across the U.S. a college writing class is very useless and a waste of time but on the other hand many more student across the nation need to take a writing class due to their poor grammar and subpar communication skills and would greatly benefit from this course. In this nation communication is a major key to being successful because in every job you need to be able to communicate with you peers and coworkers to get a certain task done, so our nation would benefit by making a writing class mandatory. To be given approximately 2 hours per week to primarily focus on writing is extremely beneficial to students because even though many students think college writing is a waste of time in reality it doesn
In the article, Is it really harder for Asian-American students to get into good colleges?, Wile states that “...some Asian-American applicants have been advised to leave the ethnicity box on their application unchecked, or to apply to humanities programs that have lower concentrations of Asian-American students...” (Wile). It is becoming increasing common to hide one’s ethnicity on a college application and it’s even advised by high school counselors. This is due to the large disadvantage that burdens applicants once they identify as Asian Americans. Additionally, in the article Some Asians’ college strategy: Don’t check ‘Asian, Jodi Balfe, a college student that still checked the Asian box, said that “‘I felt very uncomfortable with the idea of trying to hide half of my ethnic background...It's been a major influence on how I developed as a person. It felt like selling out’” (Washington).
One of these troubles is that it makes it harder for students to get into or stay in college. More and more students cannot afford the education they need (Heuvel 1). As these students get priced out of university they generally have two options, attend a community college or drop out (Samuels 1). Community
“The End of the College Essay” by Rebecca Schuman examines the struggle of the common college essay. I agree that the college essay is a hassle to the student and the professor because the student spends so long only to receive negative feedback from the professor. I do not believe every essay results in this, although from my past experiences that has been the outcome. Mrs. Schuman states the negative effects of essays by saying “Most students enter college barely able to string three sentences together—and they leave it that way, too.” I appreciate when I able to get knowledge from a class and able to get constructive criticism from my professor. Ms. Shuman brings an excellent point that will improve this system by implementing only written
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
But the good group of friends in classes is much more important. For instance, the health is the most concern in school especially is college because in college is more stress and heavier than high school. If I was having a good friends while I was sick or busy , who show up right time and take note in class could help a lot ( copy note, tell teacher about my situation…).
