Even after choosing a program students wonder if they have selected the right program for themselves. Many students fail to research college programs before making career plans. Choosing a degree program that builds on your strengths is a very important factor in a successful college completion. We all can identify that most people are more productive capitalizing on their strengths. It is important that students asses their skills, interests, abilities and needs before making a program choice.
“I don’t have a degree” said by Nick Tosches, this is what many high school graduates think of when pursuing something to do in life. “Students are lost”, In my experience I had this same question and I didn’t know much of the benefits besides earning a higher salary. We “don’t know how to make the connections” between the value of a college degree and” our” position in the economy”. These benefits will teach the rudimentary skills that you will need as you progress in your school as well as your life. In addition to the promise of a higher salary, college offers several benefits, the ability to adapt; critical thinking; effective communication; lifelong learning; technology and advanced knowledge.
Once in college “you can no longer rely on your parents for structure, rules, or academic motivation”(Klein and LaPolla). When someone goes into college or even out of high school, there needs to be independence. College is just a better way to gain independence. College students teach themselves time management, especially the kids that are living off campus. The living situation are important because for students who
Some people say that the experience in a part-time job is meaningless because most students do not consider their part-time jobs as their future careers. Nevertheless, even if the part-time jobs are not what students are interested in as their future jobs, they can find out or re-realize what they like to do and what they are good at which would help them decide their future jobs. During working part-time, college students face different situations which they have never experienced before. As they go through those situations, they develop new career interests. Furthermore, if students who have a part-time job related to their future career interests, they can re-realize if it is what they want to do in the future.
The author 's primary focus in “Some Lessons from The Assembly Line” is to bring out the situation he went through during his time at work and helping us appreciate education. In his award-winning article, “Some Lessons from The Assembly Line”, Andrew Braaksma tells you how important going to college is, getting a good job, and working hard. The first key point that the author uses is the importance college. "Factory life has shown me what my future might have been like had I never gone to college in the first place." ( Braaksma 2 ).
I am a strong believer that not everyone should go to college. There are many reason why I believe this, one of those reasons being that some people cannot pay the tuition costs. Another reason, is that most new college students are not ready for the responsibility or responsibilities of managing their own lives. The third reason is that, some new college students are just not cut out for college. I know that some people out there would say that there are programs that could help students pay for college and help with study for classes but those programs are not always available for all students.
Since I will be taking classes specified to my interests and future career, I believe I will be surrounded by these types of people. Continuing to work hard in my class and finding the time to balance these new relationships will be important, but my main goal for college is to expand my horizons and enjoy spending more of my time with friends. I have spent so much of my time in high school stressing over having straight A’s and working as often as I could to save for college. I want to truly enjoy the experience what I have worked so hard to reach. Letting go of my impossible standards for myself and stressful schedule will allow me to be enveloped in the atmosphere of the college life and enjoy what I have been spending my last few years trying to achieve: attending college.
If students do not take advantage of a college education, then they do not fully understand the privilege of being able to go to school. As an American I am blessed to be able to attend school without fearing for my life or compromising my basic rights. There are those in the world who are not able to attend a university, whether it is their country or their financial status. Those who are able to attend college should never decline the opportunity to further their education and a majority of college graduates have stated that obtaining a degree was a good investment for them “... an overwhelming majority of college graduates--86%--say that college has been a good investment for them personally” (Pew). Attending a university, conceivably may not be what a person anticipated for their life, but to pass by an opportunity to advance in their field of knowledge and mature as a person is not conducive to society as a
In the centuries the cost of college has gone up and the price of education and counseling has gone down, with job security putting the nail in the coffin. More kids are prone to drop out of college due to the cost, but still have a good job. For people who come from a rich family they would never have to think about dropping out, but for the average Joe college is not an option because of the amount of money it takes and there is no promised guarantee that you will have a job after
The impact of stress on academic success in the college students. Today, the pressure is a huge problem in the crowd, Especially in college students, but many college students don’t know how to control their stress. They also don’t know how the stress is generated. Every year, many college students can 't control their own stress to commit suicide. ( Francesca Di Meglio, 2012,para.4)But Some college students have been successful in relieving stress, let stress become a power.
