Everyone has a responsibility to do. However, for working student like me that having a part-time job while taking college courses is a big responsibility. I decided to go to school full-time and work part-time to learn to become independent. In the essay “Working at Wendy’s” by Joey Franklin, he makes a case for setting aside pride to provide the daily needs of a family. On the other hand, I think it was great to have the experience as long as it made me more money.

Getting ready and prepared for college is stepping out of a comfort zone.
My family is still not financially secure and never saved any money to put towards my college education. Neither my mother, father, or stepmother are willing, nor able, to contribute to my college education at all. Unfortunately, I will be paying for college by myself. However, I am very grateful that the University of Tulsa has generously awarded enough money in scholarships to cover my tuition, but I am lacking funds to cover room and board. I am working hard to achieve my goal of moving out of my household to be in a stress-free environment for my four years of college.

Failing m classes are not an option because I already have a considerable amount of debt only in this first semester (because I’m an international student). That is why I make empowered choices every day to succeed and be successful in my
People fail to realize that high school is easier than college since it involves much more challenging things to do, and both have education roots involved that are different in many ways. From my experience I can honestly say that colleges are much better than high school. However, I learned through my experience that college is better because you get to experience all sorts of kind of things like being a responsible adult, and trying to better yourself with time management skills than in high school. Even though, colleges are very pricey I think it’s worth every penny. Therefore, we can graduate from college and turn our dreams to reality like the way we always envisioned in high
But you will be working your life away trying to earn enough money to make ends meet. I argue that even though there are some examples of successful people without a college degree, everybody should go through this stage of self-development.

These students know that all they have to do is study hard and maintain as much financial stability as possible, because after they graduate, if they took advantage of opportunities at college they will have the networking and interpersonal skills plus the knowledge to earn a decent job with a paycheck high enough to forget anything regarding student college debt within less than five years of graduating. As shown above, having the possibility of earning a good paying job and securing your future as well as your health is more than enough to justify attending a University and studying for four years instead of rushing into job searching in early teen years. It is clearly worth the time and money attending college, as this time will not be wasted, for students will probably enjoy the best years of their lives preparing for the last years of their lives learning more about the things that passion them. There is no better feeling than earning money for doing something you love and are as good as anyone at
The important information that all college students and families should know is how much will the education cost and will they be able to repay the loans after graduation. “Perhaps the most important mathematic exercise your child will ever have to do—and the most widely neglected—is figure out how much it will cost to pay back her student loans” (Bodnar, 288). Knowing the total amount of your education and how much the monthly loan payment will be after graduation will before entering college is very important and should be considered before entering your chosen university. This topic is important because many college graduates have a hard time finding jobs where they can earn enough money to pay back their loans and still have enough money to pay their monthly bills. Many student go into default on their loans and have their wages and income taxes garnished and this will affect them for years to come when they are looking to start a family or buy a
During the last year and a half at ECC I have been able to start fulfilling my education goals by getting a good education and find out what I want to go to college for. The college has helped me in many ways not only with my education. One example of this is I have been able to work the whole time that I have been attending classes. This allowed me to save enough money that now when I transfer to NIU in January with my associates degree, I will be able to pay for it in full without taking out student loans. This was one of my fears be for going into college was that I was going to be in debt after.

Those two things for me brought me to Six Flags Great America for a class field trip. In order for the students to go on the field trip they had to earn a 3.0 GPA or better.

My father is a postman and my mother works as a secretary at my high school. Seeing the way, they both earned their livings was enough for me to understand that college wasn’t a must to make a livable income.
