To most people the college they attend is very important. Whether it is for family reasons, financial reasons, or maybe it is just a college they are most interested in. What if the large selection of public colleges were taken away? The central issue in this paper is that public colleges should only have specific majors that will help students in the future (business, medicine..ect), while private colleges should only have broader majors in fine arts. Public colleges should offer courses in fine arts as well because, the enrollment of students will increase, students will have a fair choice at what school they want to attend without a limited selection, and it will be a better experience.
But I try to ignore the comments I ask myself and try to be positive. I’ve also got in honors classes and I like the teachers I like they get us prepared for the next grade. In conclusion I loved every middle school year because of the teachers and the students. I’ve gone through many changes during middle school but I never knew they were so weird. But I’ve learned to adapt to this changed so it doesn’t feel as weird as the first time.
Firstly, college should be granted to students freely because it will encourage them to concentrate on their educations. Some college students are working part-time jobs and are full-time students. Perhaps, working through college will not always cover all of a student's education expenses including books, supplies, room and board. If free tuition is given, students will have further time to educate themselves. Moreover, college tuition and prices are at an all-time high.
The believing game helped me understand how life works and not become so stressed if something does not go my way. Not all teachers will teach to my specific learning style. Believing that I can do well in a class and learn from any teacher helped me not only deal with high school, but will also help me throughout college and life. The believing game does not just pertain to academic struggles, but also any obstacle one may face throughout life. I learned that changing my perspective allows me to see that sometimes things are my fault and it is myself that needs to change, not other
On top of that, education has become very outrageous when it comes to paying tuition. Only a couple generation ago, around the 1930’s and 40’s, it was common to be able to go to class full time, still have a job, and graduate from undergraduate school, debt free. Now to a man like Thoreau, this would be wonderful when looked at from a price standpoint. He would see the education system as a profitable experience because it does not cost too much, whereas he would frown upon today’s society filled with debt. He would greatly dislike the fact that even a few generations ago, the average man would need to work to obtain an education, but at least that education is one step closer to being the enlightenment he prefers.
The real reason why you should accept me in to the college is because I am breaking from those habits and My abilities when I properly apply them to school work can allow me to have excellent grades in class my skills are being able to be work under pressure, I am creative, I am a good team worker. When I first realized that I work good under pressure was when sometimes I would do my home work for my classes right the day before, and the next day I would usually get a good grade. The reason why I said usually is because doing my work under pressure like that only works if I already have knowledge on what to do, and reasonable amount of time to do it.
Caroline Bird’s argument against postsecondary education is incorrect, specifically her beliefs that students are exposed to too many options and graduates only want jobs that save people. First, Caroline Bird shares her belief that “a college experience that piles option on option …merely adds to the contemporary nightmare.” Although too many options can be overwhelming sometimes, it is a good thing to have several options for people to choose from. For instance, as a student, I have been exposed to many options: what classes I should take, what major I should major in, what professors I should take, etc. Options are a good thing because I do not have to be pressured into majoring in something I do not want to or taking classes that are not right for me. As a matter of fact, author Virginia N. Gordon found statistical evidence that about 75 percent of students change their major at least once before graduation (Freedman).
Sometimes change can be good. Some people just do not like to change because they have their own traditions on how they do things. But sometimes, people can get pressured into doing something new that they wouldn’t have tried before, and then they end up giving in. Why do people change? People may because their traditions on doing something can be improved and modernized.
As a former AP Lang student, I feel that this class has been very beneficial for me in that it has allowed me to apply the techniques and strategies I learned last year toward more relevant subjects. Having the freedom of choosing topics to write about for our various essays made this class more enjoyable than the other English classes that I have taken. AP Lang focused heavily on the techniques of writing solid essays, but instead of writing about useful topics, we analyzed the short stories provided on the exams. Writing a personal narrative essay was very helpful in my college application process and allowed me to employ the same kind of strategies that I learned in class into my college essays. Likewise, creating a cover letter taught me many useful strategies that I will definitely put to use when it comes time for me to submit an official cover letter to a company.
Identifying honors classes at my high school was not an easy task. A few classes were actually called honors and as I progressed the names began to shift into pre-AP and AP classes. I then entered TCC where it was a simple distinction to be able to know which classes were honors and which ones were not, in order to continue to challenge my academic experience. On top of the unclear distinction at my highschool, in my experience, most of them were taught the same way and all of the class sizes were the same. The only class I would say that felt like an actual honors class would have been my AP world history class.
The answer to the first part of the question “Is my organization‘s ethics program working?” I would have to say partially. I say this because the diversity of our main campus verses the branch campuses are totally different. The branch campuses run virtually the same, but the main campus tend to do things much differently than they should. Jeremy S. Hyman and Lynn F. Jacobs explained in an article called “Why Does Diversity Matter at College Anyway?” that Diversity expands worldliness, because college may be the first time a person has had the opportunity to have real interaction with people of diverse groups (2009). They further explained that interacting with people from a variety of groups widens you social circle, because you are expanding
There are many reason why I chosen the career of a district attorney. Getting a degree in political science can lead me into many other careers so I would not be limited. Becoming a district attorney requires difficult analyzing skills, critical thinking, and a motive for hard work. Being a district attorney will require rigorous work, time, and dedication prior to becoming a part of a county team. I have chosen the career path of a district attorney because it would give me a great challenge throughout my everyday life.
I strongly feel that Gatton Academy is the right place for me to finish high school. At my high school, I’ve struggled with lacking curriculum and instruction, with little to no challenge provided for me. Gatton Academy will be able to provide me with the tools and resources I need to excel to the best of my abilities. Not only will Gatton provide rigorous coursework, but it will help prepare me even more so for life as an adult. The extended freedoms that come with living away from home – on a college campus, no less – are something that many people would consider taking advantage of.
After filling out FAFSA I have found my financial situation to be just short of ideal, and shown through my years of hard work and dedication to education I believe that I am qualified for the university scholarship. As a student eager to become a Temple Owl the wide variety of classes and activities would not just keep me busy outside of school, but further enhance my college experience overall. I am a student eager to study computer science, a field that connects to my interests in gaining a broader understanding of computer concepts and software. The wide options in careers including software developers are ideal for me due to the courses ' abilities to mold
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. Selectiveness is not a major concern because as long as one keeps a grade-point average of a 3.8, admission will be granted. Lastly, other organizations might mention the attitude of the members. According to Bentley University, entering into organizations will help one find out about themselves: and this “self-awareness will be beneficial in your future career.” Members are required to show respect and have leadership skills in all situations to successfully accomplish this
