This happens all night and it's very annoying and hard to ignore. It is understandable that Cottingham is a dorm where students can have fun after class, but the noise level should be at a minimum after 10:00 pm. Students should respect others once the quiet period has begun. During the night, upstairs on the 3rd floor the students, which are freshman, are moving furniture all night and this makes it difficult to fall asleep. It also sounds like they are running down the hall throughout the night and slamming the door leading to the stairs loudly.
Living Policy Limits Choices Of Students Pepperdine requires two years of living on campus, which restricts students’ choices. Students should have the freedom to choose whether they live on campus or off campus. Many students disagreed with it, for many had various problems with living on campus, such as financial, cost performance, food, habits and relational. Most students agree to living on campus for their first year in order that they better understand the school and make friends. However, many believe two years is waste time.
It’s not an option being homeless In the report “Homeless on campus ” by Eleanor J. Bader being homeless is not an option while attending school because throughout the years times have got in harder on everybody and with our economy the way it is just about everyone’s is struggling to make ends meet especially with students. In “Homeless on campus” describes the lives of college students who suffer from not having a home, being physical abuse of others; some were single parents, the loss of a job, being the main household paying for bills, school, books and, being ill. The author tells many cases; however she puts a unique emphasis in one of them which is the first one she talks in her report a twenty-year old named Aesha, who is a
She felt as that by running the air conditioning all day, meaning keeping it on a low temperature, that it would not contribute to her electric bill. I argued telling her that the air conditioner has the biggest effect on the electric bill, and that if it constantly runs all day, her bill would be “sky high”. This went on for a few days, and then she received the electric bill in the mail. It was extremely high and out of the budget that they had set on bills. The reason she felt that it would not be high was because her friends always had their temperature set on low.
One question I have come across in my years as a student isn’t the how we say awake, but the why we stay awake. “Voluntary sleep deprivation is a common occurrence for many college students…”. When you’re in college or even high school, getting good grades matter. In order to achieve that goal of straight A’s we students have convinced ourselves that the more we can stuff into our brains, the better we’ll do on the test. However stuffing information into your brain takes time, which is taken up by being in school and other activities.
OUR DECISION Many believe that senior year of high school is where a lot kids start to make decisions on what they want to do with their lives especially leave their parents house and look for an apartment where they can live privately under no supervision from parents but I think that one should take a step back before making drastic decisions and think because life is not that easy as many have said but then again,everyone have their choices to make and mistakes are made of which we do learn from them. Walter Kirn,one of many who believe that the senior year of high school should be eliminated as he sees it as nothing but a waste of precious time that could be spent in college or elsewhere. But then again, how would one prove that he or she finished high school without a diploma because in the world of today,everything that we do,we need to show a proof of something especially when it comes to searching for a job,a particular certificate or degree is required or even when enrolling to colleges or universities. Kirn assumes that seniors do nothing other than relax,party,and annoy thier parents. The author uses imagery to show what will happen if senoir year was taken away meaning high school would only be three years instead of four.
Eddie Rafferty Allaire Evaluation 1.The first aspect of daily life that I would have the most difficult time adjusting to would be sharing my room with the whole family. It is bad enough sharing it with my brother. Sharing it with the Whole family would be crazy. No one would have any privacy and you couldn’t keep to yourself that much. Every time guest would come over than they would be in your room even if you don’t know them because its everyone’s room.
Students are not missing class to go scope out the opposite sex and to spend all day with them not attending any of their classes. Most students at Baldwin Wallace are either paying for their own college through their savings or loans, or their parents are paying for their college. For a student to miss class to be with the opposite sex would either be financially hurting themselves or their parents are most likely going to stop paying for the college if they aren’t attending their classes. The retention rate should have no affect on whether a campus is intermingled or not, it should have an affect on financial reasoning’s and a students study
Some friends reduced my pressure by their understanding about American students; “All they like to do is join in the party; you will never see them studying in the library more than three hours. The truth is you cannot compete with them in language, but you can compete with any American student in academic study, because they are so lazy.” I was so excited, even though I did not know if it was true or not. After a whole day trip, I found my dorm in PFT with a tired body and spirit. “What does my roommate like?” I was thinking before I opened the door. All the lights were on but no body was in the room.
Nina Cortez English 1301.103WE Professor Remonillo 2 July 2013 Will it remain or be changed? Hazing has become a huge epidemic in college campuses across the country. When students join these fraternities and sororities they do not know what they are getting themselves into. There are hundreds of different activities for students to choose from when they are in college, whether it is being on the swimming team at the recreational center, being on the yearbook staff or being involved in a student run organization. Being in college does not necessarily mean that you have to be involved in Greek Life.
