I personally have felt this way in college with the last semester I took. At times my stress level with all of my assignments was too much and made me second guess if all of this stress and money going towards the work I was putting in was worth it. As a college student, I’ve hit rock bottom to the point where I’ve wanted to quit, but then I realized once I finish all that’s required for my degree I will have my diploma that no one can take from me. College is not easy, nor inexpensive. And from experiencing both high school and college, I have seen a huge difference in the two.
Unfortunately, when students ask for a loan, they do not have strategies to repay that debt, it is not their fault, but schools’ fault that have not taught financial literacy in their schools. Sadly, it seems ordinary to have a massive debt after we graduate from college, and therefore no one has acted to change this. Having a student loan is not the problem since it is not a liability, but an investment in your future. The problem of student loan is how long you keep them after college. Luckily, there are a few suggestions that if mastered through college, can make a huge difference in the debt.
I have had a very difficult time adjusting to college because I knew how to take advice about asking for help and not actually asking for help when I needed it. During my freshman year, this was a great problem and this resulted in me ending the year with a low GPA and losing my scholarship. The wake-up call came when my strong mother broke down after I told her I had lost my scholarship and that she had to pay out of pocket for me to attend an expensive institution. Although I could have dropped out and attended the community college near my home, my mother reminded me that this was my one and only shot at a college education. For the next two semesters, I worked hard and brought my GPA above a 3.0 which helped me regain my scholarship.
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.
In my case I am a pupil that works forty hours and study full time at the same time. I have my experience to know that attending college while you are working is hard. I see that in my results, last year when I did not work I only got an A or A- but now I always almost get B or B+. I would like to live with my parents. However, I live by myself so I need the money because I need to pay my bills.
College is one of the most important and life changing times in the life of an American. Leaving high school behind and venturing out to the adult world is an amazing experience that every individual should experience. However, young adults from every corner of the country leave college with crippling debt or do not go to their preferred college of choice. College education should be cheaper as it will help families and students financially and give them the satisfaction with having the opportunity to go to their first choice for college. The tuition and cost of college is detrimental to thousands of families across the country and brings student debt to future graduates.
We struggle thru many years and when it was time for me to go to college my mom could not afford to pay for me to attend so I decided I would work and pay my own way. Working two jobs and going to college was not easy but I was managing. After a
When I told my parents of my desire to continue my study of law in Chicago, they helped me to move into the city and supported me in everyway that they could. However, I decided to drop out of the University of Chicago’s law program after only one semester. I lost the desire that I had to study law within just one semester, and I knew that I couldn’t go a single day in my life being an actual lawyer. Everytime I sat in one of my classes, it felt as though the life was being drained out of my head through a protruding straw from my nose. I knew that I didn’t want to be a lawyer, but I had no idea what I did want to do with my career.
