It contains biographies about each First Lady, from Mrs. Washington to Mrs. Trump, to teach visitors about the life and role of each First Lady. It is a great source of little-known information. The lives of the First Ladies interest me. In my opinion, most people do not even know the names of the First Ladies. They do not know what contributions the First Ladies have had to our nation’s government during her husband’s presidency.
*As all this was going on, my grandma was still teaching away here. * Well, a few years went by, and not only did the two sisters move up into new grades, my Unlce Greg came to Burdick school, looked upon as a Pee-Wee-Herman by his fellow older sisters. A year later Justin Seefeldt, the youngest of the group, was finally going to be enrolled into school, and you guessed it, that school had been Burdick. This meant that my grandma was teaching at A.E. Burdick school and her four children had attended the school as well.
At the beginning of this summer I reluctantly attended a leadership seminar that was held at my school. What high school student wants to come to school, in full uniform, during break to hear about leadership? Certainly not me. As a senior, my teachers urged me, with incredible persistence, to attend. I eventually caved and went.
I avoided getting eye exams and therefore didn’t have much exposure to the profession. Late in my junior year at Grand Valley I was having trouble seeing the board in my lecture halls, so I broke down and made an appointment with Dr.Smith. During our small talk came the typically questions: Where do you go to school? What is your major? What do you plan to do after graduation?
In 1988, Indiana Basketball coach, Bobby Knight, sparked much deserved criticism in an interview with NBC. NBC newswoman, Connie Chung, interviewed Knight and when asked in regards to not getting his way during a game he said, “I think that if rape is inevitable, relax and enjoy it.” Knight quickly added that his comments should not be taken out of context. The university apologized for the comments and stated that they do not reflect the views of the university. These are absolutely deplorable comments to make on national television as the head coach of a prestigious basketball program like Indiana. I understand that Knight said to not take the comments out of context but in what context would a national audience accept that quote as justifiable?
The tension was palpable. “Alrighty then!, who is treasurer this week?” went on Andy trying to disperse the apprehension. This illustrated how much the group meant to Andy, because he was afraid to lose the group even though he had the longest sobriety in the group. Additionally, many of the members attend other NA or AA meetings and reported feeling closer to those other groups. “I honestly don’t want to come back here, Andy is a dick, these women don’t have someone to take care of their kids, and since when did we decided we don’t allow kids.
I re-took a chemistry course this summer that I originally had taken during my first semester of college. I wanted to re-take this course (along with several other courses I’ve taken this summer and this fall term) specifically to improve my GPA and to prove to myself that I could handle the course requirements during Plebe year at the Academy. During the first exam for this class, I was out of town with my family but my professor gave me permission to take the exam online. Before taking this exam my parents said that I should cheat on the exam and that if I didn’t I was naïve. They even tried to argue that most students, even at service academies, cheat on exams.
Although concealed carry is very advantageous in the scene of dangerous situations, college campuses are secured with police and medical personnel who are far more experienced with dangerous situations. There is a time and place for everything; hallways and classrooms are not the place for guns (Alford). Adding firearms to the everyday life of a college student would worsen safety issues on campus instead of fixing them. The first reason to not allow guns on campus most importantly is it places lives in jeopardy and makes campus a dangerous place. Students from all over the world attend a certain college to learn and begin the next step of their lives.
I am one of those people who believed whatever happens in movies at college, actually happens in real life. Well that wasn’t the case for me. I remember my high school teachers telling me that professors don’t care about their students nor do they make exceptions, while that is partially correct, it is not as bad, as I thought it was. Also, I was kind of prepared for university by my senior class teachers, who tried their best to make it feel as if we were in college. Before attending UC Davis by few weeks, I thought I would make a lot of friends and have more strict professors, but that’s not how it went down.
It started when she won her first election and became the President of the Student Conservative Association at Oxford; she was able to meet helpful supporters at an early age that she would use later (Margaret Thatcher Foundation). After Oxford, she ran twice to be a Member of Parliament for a town in the outskirts of London in Dartford, Kent; did not even come close in both races but it made her the youngest woman to run in the country. In the 1952 Thatcher took a break from politics and trained to be a lawyer, who specialized in taxation. She tried to find other places in Parliament however; it was difficult at that time because of how the Conservatives felt about women with young children should not have a career. After years of trying she was chosen to be the Member of Parliament as Conservative candidate for Finchley in northern London on October 1959.
