For many years, a question has been ask trillions of times throughout the homes of families.What are you going to do after High School? Everyday you hear many different answers and bunch of different lectures of what you should and what shouldn’t you do. Having many honorable mentions such as Steve Jobs, Dave Thomas, or Kevin Rose shows that college after high school is not the only option. Four-Year Universities are not practical choice for most Americans students after High School because of the lack of preparation for a college education,Student are pressured that having a college degree is the only way to maintaining a stable financial life , and A college degree doesn 't pay off for years . Recent numbers revealed a glaring gap in the nation 's education system: A high school diploma, no matter how recently earned, doesn 't guarantee that students are prepared for college courses.
Washington State University, in Pullman, Washington was what Brad called home. After four years there, he achieved his B.S. in Teaching Education with an emphasis on science. This is "four-year" plan is what most adolescents like myself would like to achieve, but as Mike Tyson famously states, "Everyone has a plan 'till they get punched in the mouth." At this point in Matt's life, he felt that no one was in his corner and due to his circumstances, no one knew what he was going,
Something such as returning back to school was long gone and in my past goals. After a couple of years I never thought I would end up going back to school since everything that I wanted was going good and according to plan. However sometimes we are faced with tough situations where we must find other resources in order to improve and better ourselves. Going back to school was one of the most important and wise decisions that I have ever made. Finding well-qualified candidates for a job or career nowadays is a challenge, especially in the field that I am currently in; law enforcement.
Returning to college for me was something that really came unexpectedly. I joined the military in 2008 after stopping just three credits short of my degree in Culinary Arts at the Art Institute of Ft Lauderdale. I surely thought when I joined the Army that it would be my career until retirement so college was never in the books for me. However, as fate would have it I am here today recently retired from the Army at the age of 32 and enrolled as a full-time student. Even though my return to college was not planned I am truly excited to become proficient in a new trade.
My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before. I began slacking off inside as well as outside of the classroom. I stopped doing homework to my best ability’s, stopped studying for tests, and worst of all I was lying to my mother. For almost four months I treated my mother poorly. I constantly lied to her face about how my grades were.
Choosing a major in college is very tough to do, because when choosing a major your basically deciding what you 're going to be doing with the rest of your life, and thats not an easy thing to decide on. For me choosing my major it was very difficult, and it took some time to finally decide what I wanted it to be. Choosing a major took me about 2 years to decide one. It all started my senior year in high school, and I didn’t finally decide until I was already in my 2nd year of college. I had many different people influence my decision, but ultimately it was own decision and to this day I’m happy with my choice.
and that having only cell phone to write important appointment is not enough. The ninth thing I learned in college is to not procrastinate too much especially in the final few weeks, because that would alway give me a hard time in focusing on which assignment to do first. And it will leave my with load of work with little time in my hand. The tenth and the final thing that I learned in my first semester is that all my essaye that I would write in future must be writing in formal way. because I am a college student and I should start to write like a college student level and not high school
High School Graduation The beginning of the Highs School year,was a new experience for me,because of begin alone in the school without knowing nobody, not knowing the language and have zero knowledge of the academic level i need it to have in order to graduate, on the mid senior year of high school,i got a call from the counselor Mr.Calume,he told me that, in order to graduate i need it to pass 4 states exams that can be only due 2 times per year semester,and i was in my last semester of high school,so the chances of me passing those test were low for me. There for, i meet some olds friends from when i was a child from my country (Venezuela) they have move to the same school i me,so they reached me some tips and trick to pass
I think that for many years, I lacked the commitment, confidence and self-leadership skills required to complete a bachelor’s degree. I did not think that I was smart enough or had the aptitude needed to complete the ninety credits required for a bachelor’s degree. This class mainly focuses on leadership that involves followers, but I approach this class as a way of learning leadership skills that I can apply to my day to day life in order to meet my objectives. Take for instance the Situational Leadership Theory; it is a theory that calls for leaders to match their styles to the competence and commitment of their employees or followers (Northouse, 2016). When I work on an assignment, I rate my course content knowledge anyway from D1 to D4.
I am not prepared for the work that I am going to get when I attend college but I am prepared in a different way one that most people ever even think about. One of the reasons that I believe that I have not been prepared for college is that there is a lack of challenges in the work that is given to me. I transfered to San Jacinto Christen Academy after my freshman year of high school. When I got
As a Thomas Nelson Community College student, I need to get my degree as soon as everyone else does, even though college is difficult. College is difficult. Because I am a first semester student, I know that I am facing many challenges. One of the challenges is making a schedule because classes have different days and different times. Creating a schedule becomes even more difficult if students have a job or children to take care of.
My proudest achievement would be getting into Cumberland International Early College and making it oy my senior year. The three years I have spent at Cumberland International have been very difficult because of many reasons such as being on the campus of Fayetteville State University, taking almost two years of high school in only two semesters, and being pushed to excel from the beginning in order to prepare to take full level college courses by our tenth grade year. Although I struggled during my time at CIECHS it was a truly amazing opportunity to be accepted as the third graduating class of its time. Being at a school that had only been running for two full years has both positive and negative aspects. We were changing the curriculum
As a freshman, I thought this was out of reach for me and pointless to work toward so I decided to put NHS out of my sight. I did not realize my potential as a young scholar; in doing so, I set myself back academically. My priorities were set on understanding the hectic schedule instead of the vigorous goals that I have now. As a fourteen year-old in freshman year, my standards were set lower for myself since I was unorganized and lost majority of the time. I lacked skills in time-management and multitasking; skills which I practiced and perfected through my school’s use of the modular schedule.
For me, high school is not and never will be identified as "the best four years of my life." High school is restricting and time-consuming. High school impedes on the exploration of my personal interests and hobbies. I hope my message is conveyed properly - learning is important and pleasurable
Transitioning from high school to Middle College requires a surplus of mental strength. In order to successfully transition to Middle College I had stop relying on others and become independent. At first, the thought of leaving my friends and being alone in a new school on a college campus, filled with many students is considered immensely frightening. However, I was
