There is an ample amount of information that leads people to believe that college is a great choice. In Source F, it is shown that, “Adults who graduated from a four-year college believe that, on average, they are earning $20,000 more a year as a result of having gotten that degree. Adults who did not attend college believe that, on average they are earning $20,000 a year less as a result.” Also, provided in Source F, “...55% say it [college] was very useful in helping them prepare for a job or career.” While these statistics are true, the negatives still outweigh the positives. Even though people may be earning more with a college degree, they still suffer the burden of paying off extraordinarily high debts. This means less money is being saved for themselves.
Keep Them Warm: In some parts of the country, fall can bring on dangerously cold temperatures. Just as you shouldn’t leave your dog in a hot car in the summer, you should never leave them out in the cold for too long during the fall and winter months. For smaller or older dogs, dressing them in a warm sweater during a walk may be a good idea. For more autumn dog safety tips, reach out to the dog boarding experts at Dog Day, Every Day! today.
Attention passengers an inbound train towards the loop will be arriving shortly. This short, descriptive, and monotone sentence spoken by an automated program over the loud speaker of Chicago’s orange line platform may be meaningless and insignificant to most. But in fact, this monotone sentence impacted my childhood and made me into the person I am today. Standing on Chicago’s orange line platform in one hundred degrees heat was miserable, but hearing those train doors open with the rush of freezing air conditioning hitting against my face was absolute heaven. My father was very active and loved traveling through Chicago, my brother and I always were forever along for the ride.
Currently there are only 1,520 Hispanics out of 24,146 students attending K-State. To become a national model in multiculturalism K-State promote the recruiting and retention of Hispanics and other minority/multicultural groups (both currently accounting for only 15% of the student population) as they are under-represented in the institution. In addition, the State of Kansas reported a high school graduation rate for Black (75%), Hispanics (77%) and Whites (88%) for the years 2011-12. K-State is adapting the curriculum and adding new courses, encouraging multicultural content on existing courses, offering of scholarships to attract all the Kansas high school graduates not only White graduates. The implementation of the use of culturally competent teaching techniques promoting diversity and multiculturalism teaching practices is discussed in the Final Office of Diversity K-State 2025 Strategic Action and Alignment Plan document dated February

That is more than anybody else! Don’t be greedy!”. A scholarship given to a Division 1 player is on average $25,000 every year, which adds up to $100,000 every four years. Although this may seem like a huge amount of money, it’s only enough to cover small basic costs, a few thousand goes to “mysterious, unknown university fees” anyway. Some may think that it isn’t that difficult to be a full time athlete and still manage to finish and pass all your school classes, but being a full time athlete is really a full time job.
Villanova University has twenty-two sports teams, and according to a study done by the National College Players Association, each athlete could make up to $500,000 a year. These teams vary in size and there could be dozens of athletes on just one team. To put this into perspective, Villanova could easily pay millions of extra dollars for each team just to fund their athletes. On top of that, Villanova’s financial assistance office reports that the school offers about 160 million dollars in scholarships and grants every year, excluding all loans. College budgets are tight, and any extra expenses, like paying athletes, may cause them to offer less scholarships.
It was a hot summer day in August when Anthony, and I woke up to prepare for our adventure in Michigan. We packed our bags because we knew we had a long day ahead of us; a three-hour road trip. As we finish packing, we realize that we needed a few things to eat, so we stopped by Cermak to get some fruit for later. We bought bright-red strawberries, a nice small cantaloupe, and a medium light green watermelon. We put the bags in the trunk and start heading toward the highway.
This confuses me because how could it be that Latinos in general are growing in population at universities yet the presence of Latino males is quite low. Comparing Latinos with Latinas, Latinas are succeeding in pursuing a higher education and attaining higher success rates than Latino males. Although in general Latino males are having difficulties in college, here at California State University San Marcos the story is quite different. This university is ranked among the top 20 colleges for Hispanic students to succeed in. Ever since 2010, CSUSM has been known as a Hispanic Serving Institution because it contains at least a 25 percent student population of Hispanic students and in 2014 the Hispanic population grew up to nearly almost 40 percent
In a survey done by pew research center they found that four in ten US households (37%) have student debt. Although there are many of those who do not go to college and go straight into the workforce, a college education has been ingrained in the minds of students to be able to make it in america. There are many who can afford college and receive a diploma without debt, but those are very fortune people and are not the majority of students. College tuition has gone up
Does one even have enough to pay standard bills? The cost doesn’t stop there, so were those thousands of dollars spent really worth it? That’s what most ask themselves at night when they can’t sleep because they’re figuring out how to pay their light bill. The ground on wages fluctuates by year, “hourly wages for young college-educated men in 2000 were $22.75, but that dropped by almost a full dollar to $21.77 by 2010. For young college-educated women, hourly wages fell from $19.38 to $18.43 over the same period” (“New College Grads Losing Ground on Wages.”).
In Source C it states, “Among millennials ages 25 to 32, median annual earnings for full-time working college-degree holders are $17,500 greater than for those with high school diplomas only. That gap steadily widened for each successive generation in the latter half of the 20th century.”. This shows that people who went to college and got an education earn a lot more money than those who only have a high school diploma. When people are focused on their education and go to college they will be more successful, but focusing on college as a “country club” won’t get people successful. Continuously, in Source D it states, “High school graduates earn about 62% of what those with four-year degrees earn, according to a Pew Research Center study.
Given that textbooks are roughly $150 each, that puts students at spending nearly $1,200 annually (according to a Chicago Tribune report). Because of this high cost, there are many students that decide not to purchase textbooks, despite being aware of the “textbooks are mandatory” notices. Our generation of young adults is taught that education is the most important task we could ever achieve in our life. Without education, how will we find a job? How will we make a living?
One of the reasons i believe that college isn’t worth it is because of student loans and debt. Between 2003 and 2012 the number of 25 year olds with student debt increased from 25% to 43% and their average loan balance was 20,326. While some thrive in college, some fail due to stress to succeed while trying to figure out how to pay for their college education. Student debt has surpassed the trillion dollar line and more than 850,000 student loans were in default.
