We were all somehow exposed to different backgrounds, as well as lifestyles. Therefore, it’s safe to say that the statement “Is College for Everyone” doesn’t imply to certain people who were raised to think otherwise. However, Pharinet seems to think that most kids should consider not going to college at all. Pharinet went on to explain how most students will find themselves working full-time jobs to help pay the expenses of college, in result their grades begins to drop. Then the student decides to drop to a part-time worker, register for less class hours to find more time to work on improving their grades.
I love that school, a lot has happened, I made lasting friendships, and I feel I made a difference there. I joined many clubs and organizations and ended as one a class officer my senior year.

I willingly accept new challenges, conquer my goals, and strive to create a better community for myself, and those around me.

As college freshman, we don’t want to put on all the extra things all at once. We want time to breathe, relax, and have fun; Enjoy college life, isn’t that what it’s all about?
