“Research suggests that additional education improves overall wellbeing” (210). My life has benefitted from going to college and has been shown through this first semester that I have been out of high school. When I first came to college, I didn’t feel like I was pressured into being here. This choice was solely my idea, because I knew that I didn’t possess the skills I needed to succeed in the real world. Getting my bachelor’s degree and going the extra step to get my master’s degree was always my plan.
The whole reason for college is to help people learn. Knowledge is power, and who doesn’t want power? College lets people learn new amazing things they did not have the opportunity to learn in high school. While attending college people can figure out and learn what they want to do for the rest of their life. College also does more than just teach knowledge, source F says that 69% of students say college was useful in helping them grow and mature as a person.
My professor has provided sufficient time in class and at home which has allowed me to put a lot of thought into writing my papers. During the time in class she let us work on our papers, I gave myself a two hour window on my essays to see how much I could type. This helped me learn to focus on paper content and forget about the other distractions in my life. I found that while practicing this, I could formulate my ideas more effectively and, in turn, strengthen my writing. These practices turned into good habits; and now when I am at home, I can use my time wisely and type thoughtful papers while still not taking all the time in the
College: Is It Worth It? As a student in high school, the pressure of figuring out what I want to do in the future is real. The idea of growing up and getting a college education seems to be always in the back of my mind and it is hard. What if I don’t want to go to college? It’s hard to even think about that seeing as not going to college is often seen as lazy and irresponsible, but should it be seen that way?
Education after high school will lead to better job finds and just all around smartness and maybe even learning things a school can’t teach you. I think the world needs to lower college prices because you need a college education for most good jobs, so poor students can still attend college, and the debt you have after college is enormous and takes forever to pay off. Please take all of these reasons into
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.
I attended college right after college because I wanted to add to what I’ve already learned in high school. Also I knew what I wanted to do and be in life. The things that was taught in high school was still be fresh to me. I was one of the fortune students who qualified for TOPS and federal grants to pay for my pricy tuition. I think if I would have had to pay out of pocket for tuition, I would have been one of those who would have set out for a while before attending.
Up until this time, I was unsure as to what I wanted to study in college. I came to the realization that I want to become a teacher, ideally in mathematics. I believe a teacher’s role is to lift up her students, help them gain confidence, and give them unlimited opportunities to succeed and most importantly, celebrate one’s differences. When I become a teacher I will always make sure I help all of my students and give them all the same opportunites to do what they want. Not having certain opportunities because of my size has truly affected me, and I would never want a student of mine to feel defeated.
What is college? Why even go to college? Those are two great questions that both need to be answered. College is schooling that comes after high school that mainly focuses on whatever subject that a student chooses as his or her major. The second question can be a little more complicated because everyone has their own reasons, and now, I will tell you my reasons for why college is important.
Intro My brother, being a ninth grader at the high school, is constantly reminded of the importance of college and his performance in high school. I want to start looking into colleges but i don’t know where to start. The thought of getting left behind in society because I didn’t look for a college is nerve racking, but I already knew some things. I knew that your performance in high school helps with your college, but that’s about it. I still had a lot to learn before I can decide on a college Some things I hoped to learn throughout this project is how I can get into a college with minimum student loan, what colleges I’m interested in, what colleges are looking for, is studying abroad better than staying in the states, and what classes I should take in college.
My first year at Brookdale I joined the ALP program because I didn’t get a good grade on the Accuplacer. I decided to join this program so I wouldn’t have to take a English course next semester and be so behind. I joined Brookdale because I didn’t know what I wanted to do as a major and also didn’t know what four year college to go to. I didnt think Brookdale was going to all that great so I didn’t really want to go, but it was the best decision I made. Going to Brookdale was a good choice for me.
I know that this program will be a very useful help in being college ready when I start in the fall and not being sure in what I have to and don’t have to do. Describe a personal challenge or adversity you’ve experienced and how you were able to overcome that obstacle (provide specific steps that were necessary) A personal challenge that I have experienced had to do with my whole family. My parents and my brother came to the United States to search for a better lifestyle like a lot of immigrants do. Along the way my mom had me, my twin sister, and my little sister and they decided to become US residents. They started to go to the process when I was in middle school and we were all hopeful that they would be get them.
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
Since it’s an AP class, I expect there to be plenty of work. I’m not saying I like to do school work, but I think this class and the things I learn from it will be worth it. I know colleges will have plenty of work for me, so this will prepare me and build up my work ethic. I am doing this summer homework because I think it will be worth my time to take the class and do more work. As long as there I can see the significance and purpose to the things I do, I am willing to do the work.
I expect it to be really challenging and hard. From what I have heard you get a lot of homework and essays. Since my teachers in middle school are really good I don’t think I will have a problem in high school. I also expect high school to be a lot of fun. It will be fun because I get to have classes with my friends and I get to do fun activities like gym and different clubs.
