Somewhere along the way Americans began supporting the idea that all students should go to College. Students get the idea by the time they are in middle school that they need College to be successful. There are so many loopholes around college as well as evidence showing that having a degree doesn’t mean person A makes more money than person B. College isn’t for everybody, and people can go get their 3 year degree only to find out that the whole experience wasn’t worth anything to them and now they have all their student debt to deal with. College, unfortunately, is very expensive; However, in America we have many options for students to pay for their education, almost all ways of paying tuition put students in debt. A chart that uses information from The U.S bureau of labor statistics shows that “The bottom quarter of earners with a college degree don’t make more money than the average high school graduate.”
Meanwhile, she works hard because she has the hope that she can achieve her goals for the future. For example Adeline says, “The people in my books become real than anyone else, they make me forget.” Yen Mah pg. 173. This means that Adeline really focuses in school and continues to achieve her goals by studying hard and reading books.
There has been major discussion recently if college athletes should or shouldn 't be paid while they are in school. Some people say that they are already getting a scholarship which is more than anybody else, therefore they believe it is considered being greedy. Let 's not be greedy and look at how much a scholarship is actually worth. In college most athletes don 't last at a school for the whole four years.
Wrapped up in his own lonely thoughts and love for Sarah, Drew didn’t even realize that class was almost finished. Before he knew it the bell rang and the school day was over. As Drew walked down the hallway, people poured out of the school doors endlessly. His arms swished back and forth, in stride with his feet, as he walked down the halls towards room 137. Book club meeting was soon to be in session and Drew knew, as President, that he couldn’t be late.
My fond for University of Chicago started with a feeling which is vague, unreasonable, and “unwipable”. I did not read things about the university, I watched videos on Youtube instead. I tested my feelings through the way University of Chicago students spoke, expressed their ideas, acted. I looked for the side, unmain parts of a video. For an example, there was an interview of a group of students, and I focused on an Indian girl playing ball behind them.
Food plays a big part in my culture identity because there is different types of food I like, which may be different from others. Most food that represents me and my cultural identity is junk food. That represents my culture because that is all I like to eat. At every party or family gathering while most of the people are bringing health foods, I’m always the one to bring junk food. Every time there is a new type of junk food like candy, donuts or cake I’m always the first one to buy it and try it.
This same problem followed me into high school. I was always striving to make my notes absolute perfection. Not wanting a single stray pencil mark or any pen bleeding through the paper. Now that I am in college I realize I have turned my problem into something useful. I take notes in class in pen, and then after class I go back through and edit them.
Just as any other student entering college, we enter scholarships with the intent to help pay for school. As everyone knows college isn’t cheap. I believe the reason i’m applying for this scholarship not only is that of lack of money, but also lies somewhere else, such as why i’m pursuing this degree, and what I intend on doing with it. As a multitude may know fashion design is an up and coming major that is one of the most challenging. I would love to be able to take on this challenge.
My parents have supported me financially by sending me through a Catholic education. Next year I will attend school at the University of Northern Iowa to study business accounting and finance. As a college student, I will be expected to pay a majority of the financial cost through loans. Most importantly, I have planned for the future by setting high expectations for myself in school and at my job. Failure for me would be obtaining anything lower than an “A” in a class.
I think about how my life would have been if I did good in high school, but then I realize I would not be where I am today if I did good. I am actually glad I choose this route because I have a different perspective on life. I know what it is sort of like to live on my own because I have a little apartment, but it is in my grandparents’ house. I only pay for things I need, which is not that much because I get an allowance. People say that I am spoiled, but I saw this as an opportunity and a good one at that.
It was across the country as required a parent’s sign off since I wasn’t eighteen. A signature my mother wasn’t willing to provide. Instead of going to another four year college, I decided to go to a local community college. I hadn’t considered what this would mean for my future, that I would be living with people who not only weren’t my family, but had no responsibility or commitment to keep me in their house hold. I didn’t even consider what it would mean for my educational future, like the fact that half of the college I was accepted to would be transferable to through the community college I chose to attend.
However, high ranked private universities have multibillion funding that can give full ride tuition for low-income students who have done very, very well in their academic performance. However, for the rest of us, it 's every person for themselves. Antonio Vielma, a Questbridge Scholar and senior at Northwestern, agreed with the idea but wondered whether "private colleges with large endowments will lose their middle class students." However, new data portrays that sixty-nine percent of colleges are able to keep students after their first year due to tuition fees. Free college isn’t going to lead to the apocalypse or the end of time, all it will do is give students the opportunity to get an exceptional education without student loans haunting them for the rest of their
As soon as the alarm goes off, people begin to meander to class. Some decide to pick up books at their lockers, while others choose to chat with their friends in the halls. However, junior dual credit students begin to rush to the Mac lab in hopes of not getting a tardy. Many of them make it with a few minutes to spare and then begin talking amongst themselves. The English teacher, Mr. Damon West, arrives soon after the majority of the class arrives.
People in America probably feel like they have no future if they don’t get into college, they won 't get the job they want and their parents will feel disappointed in their children, the students will have a bad life most people think. In Sweden, we are too lucky about living here that we don’t realize that, even when people tell us we don’t care, not that many people have their highest expectations about getting into college, because there is always next year, and actually quite easy to get into college. In Sweden, many kids have their lives handed to them for free, but in the U.S, the students have to work hard to get a good life and pay a high price for it. In the documentary the students didn’t have very high-tech phones or computers, they didn’t use Facebook or like any other social media, they texted, emailed and called, but no real social medias.
College is a new world. College isn't like high school where we can easily cheat in class or copied someone's homework. College is all about working towards being someone in life. College is about discovering more about ourselves and pushes us beyond our boundaries. It about being financially stable and able to take care ourselves and our family.
