Many people have witnessed the cost of rising college tuitions crush students dreams of attending the schools that they have been fantasizing about for years. Tuition for colleges has been rising for many years and it is going to keep rising. This is the reason many American’s are not even considering college. Entering in a society without education is very hard when most jobs require at least an associates degree. With the rising tuition education is going to be very hard to acquire.
There are many unemployed people who attended college and think all the investment they did in their study was in vain. I believe college is the most important place where you learn to learn things in effective manner. It is also a place where we meet a diverse group of individuals challenging each other and also learning from each other. College provides a chance to build your ability in every way. There was time when
Students should not have Credit Cards in College EM Swiams Com 156 2/20/2011 Elizabeth L. Vunk Credit card companies are marketing on college campuses that have led to a growing trend of young adults, in America, becoming trapped in the financial nightmare of high debt acquired while in college. Many things transpire quickly when a young person leaves high school and starts off for college. For those moving out of his or her parent’s house, there are dwelling arrangements, food and spending money to be considered. Depending on the level of support from the parents, the student also needs at least some financial income for food, supplies, entertainment, etc. When both the parental support and other income do not fill the need or desire of financial independence students are more increasingly turning to credit cards.
College Admissions: College Acceptance Based On A Students Wealth If you asked most students what it takes to get into college, they would instinctively rehash what had been repeated to them over and over again: If you want to get into college, you're going to need good grades and extracurricular activities! But nobody ever told these students that there was a way to bypass these requirements and guarantee your admittance. It turns out that if you are able to, you can bribe a fair amount of colleges to admit you by giving them a sizable financial donation, I'm talking in the millions. Now some people will read this and automatically think that this is unfair and wrong, but I believe allowing colleges to admit students on the grounds of financial donations rather than academic and extracurricular merit is necessary in order to increase the quality of life for all current and prospective students and could lead to a change in the way we perceive college admittance. The giant donations received from these types of students can be put to great use, one of these uses is funding scholarships.
Expensive Schools vs. Cheaper Schools Each year more and more colleges are starting to increase their tuition for each student. As a result students are struggling to find that kind of money and now have to take out loans. Once students take out loans they are leaving school with a ton of debt. With education becoming so vital for jobs, why are schools making it harder and harder to afford school? Over the past year I have done college searches to find a school I could afford.
Parents spend a lot of money for their son or daughter to better them through higher education. Alcohol directly causes that investment to be wasted away. “Alcohol consumption before and during final exam period is detrimental to students’ performance. The effect is particularly significant for the highest-performing students, according to the study” (Daily Princetonian Staff) this quote explains how alcohol consumption is directly associated with failing grades, even in usually high performing students. The quote came from a study taken during finals week at a college.
Only I think of the ‘luxury’ as being able to step into and attend college classes daily. Many students are denied the privilege to even be accepted to a university based on their income, ability to pay for tuition costs, and time juggling a full time job. While I agree that trade schools and training program degrees may be appropriate for many individuals, I personally think that one obtains a well-rounded education when taking classes in the Liberal Arts and can obtain more ‘real world’ training if laid off from employment and forced to take an unfamiliar job. Many need to be able to continue to provide for themselves, and often a family with no advisement or help from others. I agree again with Ungar on his theory that “it is often difficult to explain the advantages of a liberal-arts education to people from other cultures, where it is common to
You know, all the classy gentlemen go to college, or at least that’s what tradition says. College or university might be the mainstream and what`s becoming the normal thing to do, and with our society’s view right now, anyone who doesn’t attend post-secondary education could be seen as a lower class citizen, which isn`t a good thing. The university/college situation right now is set up to be so high pressure for young people leaving high school. But we have to consider that more degrees correlate with higher unemployment rate. Our society undervalues entrepreneurial work, trade skills, and it discourages young people from pursuing this type of education after high school.
You see, not everyone is college material. College is hard, demanding, exhausting, time-consuming and requires a lot of commitment--not everyone is capable of enduring all of that for the length of time it takes to graduate from college. I have also noticed in my counseling that teenagers who are forced to go to college right out of high school often don't take college seriously enough. Generally in that situation, the teenager treats college like it is just an extension of high school. I have seen students go to college because their parents forced them to, then cut classes, not study, do way too much partying, and get poor grades.
Why College Students Should Not Have Credit Cards In today’s society, credit cards are an imminent structure of the economy. The process is initiated at the entrance of college in which credit card companies notoriously target college students. Applications are mailed almost immediately at the ripe age of eight-teen, and presented all over college campuses. Under customary credit requirements, most students would be denied credit due to no credit history or minimal or no income. The anticipation of shopping for what you desire and not having to pay the bill right away is used to entice many of us.
