But the influx of more freshman at North Carolina than Duke staggers dramatically. North Carolina has triple the freshman than Duke! On average, the ACT score to get into Duke as a freshman is a 32, but it is only 29 at North Carolina. So this difference raises a question, Which school is better for education? The higher acceptance rate but harder credentials, or the easier credentials but lower acceptance rate?
The private for-profit institutions the percentage was 32 percent with ages 25–34, and 21 percent were age 35 and older (NCES, (n.d.)). Similarly, the percentage of young professors in the modern universities decreased. This decrease is obvious in the land grant universities nowadays. The percentage of professors 34 years old or younger dropped by 50% from 1975 to 1984 (De Francesco & Rhoades, 1987). King (2008), stated that the age of professors 44 years old or younger in the colleges and universities are only 15 percent of the total professors in the four year institutions, and only 11% in the community colleges.
This percentage should be a lot higher for the taking in consideration the amount of students which enrolls each year. With the amount of people that are accepted and enrolled each year being around 60,000 people into the program. The people who actually pursue a higher education is less than 10,000. It currently sits at 7200 people which are a 12 percent mark of the 60,000 people who originally enrolled into the program.
I would not be able to know what is going on in their life. I also believe that would play a large role in my everyday decision making. Bowling Green State University has around 19,000 students (“Bowling Green State University”) which is a rather larger campus and is located in an acceptable area of Ohio. While Towson has around 22,000 students (“Towson University”) but is not located in a very well though of area of
I have visited all three campuses and attended a class there when walking around the campuses it made me imagine myself going to those school because of the environment and the majors they are known for. Above all, when I search deep inside, the campuses are top diverse schools. The size of the campuses are also where I want it to be, not too small or not to big. The location of the campus is one thing I consider when I choose one of this college as my top choice because it is convenient school where I am able to go to my parent’s house because I want to make sure that I can come to my family once a week. Even though living on campus is a requirement for me, it is an hour and a half drive from my mother house.

After listening to the wisdom of Husky, one can recognize that he offers valuable insights, but also provides some inaccurate information regarding academic affairs in community college. Beginning with the valuable information, he is correct when he states that the cost of community college, in both tuition and price-per-credit, is significantly lower than a four-year institution. He is also partly correct about the curriculum. For students enrolled with the intention of transferring to a four-year institution, general education courses in the liberal arts are offered that will transfer to their desired school. He explains that these liberal arts courses are generally smaller than those offered at larger schools, and provide for more interaction with the instructor – both claims are true.
Being an immigrant and first generation college student, I took the time to think about what I want. My counselor recommended SCU because of the high quality of the education. SCU is a very competitive college in California. I was looking for the school that offer good engineering major, a comfortable learning environment, and location; SCU provide what I need. Because San Jose is close to my home in Seattle, I can continue to help to family.
Bowling Green State University is located in Bowling Green Ohio (“Bowling Green State University”) which is only 30 minutes from my home. I would be able to commute and not say on campus. While on the other hand Towson University is located in Towson Maryland (“Towson University”), which is 502 miles from my home. I personally would not be able to handle not seeing my family on a daily basis. and as far as commuting that would be impossible.
If all students attend NCCU will have an enrollment of 8,132 where 8,035 were projected for the year. This is one of the largest freshman/transfer they have had. AVC Deaver announced the surveys were available and they had received 15 out of 400; which most of them were favorable. There were 2 negative comments. It was stated they needed 20 – 30% to make it statistic.
A lot of the bands I like to listen to come to Raleigh and Chapel Hill so I would be closer to both of those places. NC State also has an average class size of about 30 students, so this would be optimal for me. There are also some drawbacks to attending NC State. First off, I don’t like the vibe of the NC State campus nearly as much, it makes me feel like I’m in a busy city as opposed to a college.
I already have connections and relationships with people from Vanden High, so it would be easier for me to adjust into that system. I believe I would feel comfortable there, and so it will be easier for me to learn and enhance my high school career, knowing that I am able to feel secure and
