Susan Hansen, an Admissions Director at liberal arts college in the East, has recommended to her president that the college needs to increase its tuition and reduce financial aid to students in order to solve the school’s financial problems. Last year, the college enrolled 400 new students who each paid an effective tuition of $15,000 totaling $6,000,000.

Chapter One "A Rough Start" I would call this chapter "A Rough Star". I say this because in this chapter Holden mention how he misses his brother D.B. who has moved to Hollywood to per sue his own career. He also talks about how he goes to a school called Pency Prep, but has flunked out because he has failed four out of five classes. This is very similar to his past school records at other schools, always finding a way to get kicked out.
The fact that Royal, after twenty two years, decided to give his wife a divorce before marrying Henry shows how much he has grown and formed into a man who has developed the ability to think of others.

I have lived in Terre Haute for 23 years and have seen a limited amount of school pride.
Getting a college education is something that most of us strive to get our entire lives. While many of us strive to do well in high school in hopes of getting in to a college of our choice, nowadays we can find many people enrolled in “profit colleges” that focus more on the money aspect rather than giving knowledge. “Profit” colleges such as University of Phoenix encourage people to take out an outrageous loan for education that ends up being a burden to pay for in the long run. In the movie, “College Inc” it states that “Around 44 percent of students who take out federal loans to attend a for-profit college default on those loans.” After watching “College Inc,” I had no idea how much of our education was being offered online.
