My experiences growing up did not help me develop my diversity consciousness as much as I would've liked. Getting a college education and learning about diversity in this class and my human resources class have helped me develop an understanding that people and businesses must understand that the world, and specifically America, is diverse and we must learn and grow to help make it a successful achievement. The most difficult challenge for me will be stepping out of my comfort zone. I'm not exactly a hermit, but I do like to keep to myself a lot of time. I will need to put myself out there, ask questions when I don't have any clue what I'm talking about, and be more open to talking to different people.
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.
The American Dream can be defined in any way people desire it to be. Although, our generation has become more materialistic there are still those who don’t only go to college to attain these materialistic desires but go because of the ideological joy studentsget from their experience there. A piece of information which supports this well is Pasquerella’s article “The American Dream and Higher Education’s Broader Purpose”. She writes about students’ motivations for college and that several main reasons inspiring college enrollment center on a desire for materialistic things, a desire to explore the world alone, and a student’s desire for higher education. It’s a known fact that having a decent job is necessary if you want to purchase high-end
St. Mary’s is a Marianist and liberal arts university that prides itself with teaching well rounded students to use their gifts and god given talents to not only help themselves, but their communities and fellow mankind. As technology and science advance, humans are increasingly more detached from one another. It is dangerous for individuals, in this case college students, to master their chosen fields, but fail to connect their mission to the grander scheme of life. Life is more than a grade in a class and certainly more than a test score. Yet, because of ambition and lack of proper guidance to connect the dots between personal success and the common good, it is hard to realize that fact.
My mother draws disability for a work related injury but it’s still not enough to make ends mites. Yes, I will get a college educations and succeed in my career as a Social Worker so I can make sure I don’t leave my spouse or children in a finical bind. As doing volunteer work and going back to college I could recognize the Millennials. I found Millennials is pushy, loud and very demanding of their wants. I feel the Millennials thinks they should be running companies just because they are more technology smarter they the generations behind
Going back to college demonstrates several things. First, it impresses upon my children the importance of a college education and how the possibilities multiple by earning a degree. We always tell our kids anything worth having is worth the hard work and sacrifice. My family has already experienced the sacrifice because we spend less time together, I’m less accessible, and doing things without me is more frequent. Secondly, it makes them realize making such important decisions should be done carefully and thoughtfully taking the family into consideration.
Funding down is not only helping students’ financial problems, it is also giving a same chance for every student to choose their dream major. Beside funding down, in my opinion, government and school can provide a suitable amount of financial aid to corresponding levels. Likes, people are studying in Laws can earn greater amount of helping. These might reduce the dropout
Colleges are considered viable establishments for preparing students for jobs after their education career ends. However, they are not doing an optimal job in ensuring that students are obtaining the best education they can get. There is no pull or motivation factor to capture students’ attention within a large class. The most pivotal part of college is implementing what was learned throughout its duration, and applying it to a future career. Students are paying tens of thousands of dollars to attend college, and lowering the class sizes will help students receive the best education that they are paying for.
It helped me to understand the expectations of college and the university educators, balance my money and make a budget, and it explained the culture of higher education. The biggest take away I got from this chapter was the self-assessment scoring sheet, I learned that the choices I make will sometimes get me off course. This helped me to realize that in the future I will have to make my goals priorities in order to succeed in college. Chapter 2 was all about accepting personal responsibility. We learned about making wise decisions, changing our inner conversations, and not giving in to stereotypes.
For example, Warhawk Academy offers all of its members the un-restricted access to park anywhere on campus. This exclusive benefits is to promote promptness to class and to relieve stress about parking violations. Other organizations will talk about the unfairness and the thoughts of others about the situation. Another negative comment one might hear about Warhawk Academy is that the organization is very competitive and selective; however, this fact is only partially true. Competition only occurs when one reaches the junior year of college because the availability decreases as the number of years increase, since Warhawk Academy has exclusive features such as; discounts on books, un-restricted parking, and early access to technology.
The policies of Title IX is a problem that has been an issue pushed under the rug for years and it needs to be revised. Men’s teams shouldn’t have to be cut, all it takes is changes within the universities and a public voice. Spreading the word about Title IX and the negative effects will open the eyes of politicians, courts, and the universities. If everyone started a trend on social media and put pressure on the colleges, they could make a plan to reverse the negative effects. Challenging and changing the impurities of Title IX won’t make genders’ in athletics unequal, but balanced and ultimately just.
When I first started researching Fisher vs. Texas, I believed discrimination in college applications was very wrong and unlawful. I believed everyone should have a fair opportunity to go to the school of their choice. As I researched the issue more, it became apparent to me that diversity is truly important to our learning experiences while in college. In college, diversity has taught me many different viewpoints and has helped me understand different cultures. The learning aspect is important but I also believe that students that come from poorer communities and challenging childhoods should have an opportunity to attend top universities.
The professor Louis Menand explains in his essay the different theories that exist in different college students and how society always tries to sort people based on their intelligence. Menand explains Theory 1 as students who only want to pursue the career paths that promise greatest personal or financial rewards. All they care about is ace their classes so they can warrantee to get their dreamed job. It doesn’t matter if they don’t understand the course or even if they to learn more. They completed all their classes and they learned what it supposed to learn and basically they don’t want to learn more.
I love to look at the world as one whole and it’s very hard to do that because of how messed up our system is, but there is always good people like Mantsios and myself that love to speak for the ones that can’t see the flaws in our system. One great topic that comes to mind when I think about is the steps a student has been told to take to become successful and that’s dumping lots of money into college. The cons of college and how a student like Cheryl is taught to obey and do things that their parents, advisors, and teachers say to do. I believe that going against the grain and doing
