In her article, Dowd argues against the use of such application like RoomBug and website like URoomSurf.com by claiming that, first of all, being able to choose their own roommates would block out the opportunity for students to mature socially. She contends that being put into the same dorm room with people students don’t like or find it difficult to live which can “toughen you[the student] up and broaden you[the students] out for the rest of your[the students’] life”. However, though the statement is true in some parts, the writer has overlooked another crucial point: a dormitory is not the only place people can learn how to live with others. Students have to communicate with other people apart from their roommates in daily life. For example, students will need to converse and work with other students while preparing for a group presentation, discussing with their teachers after class about
Many different factors can influence their reason for their attitude. Some could simply not care and it was either school or jail. Some could be new students and upset about a move so they just won’t show effort. Out of all the types of students, these students are the most mysterious because their effort doesn’t necessarily show what type of person they really are. From a social stand point, this type of student could be bullied, have conflicts at home, or be influenced by some other outside force.
If you are the type of person who has responsibilities at home or has to work, like I mentioned earlier, you need a closer to home cost efficient education plan. If you are more career focused, you are offered more condensed programs to get you a degree and where you need to be faster. She also lists the various pros and cons to deciding which is better. A few cons being that CC’s lack the community life offered at Universities. Students are likely to drop out more if they don’t have that motivation or enough involvement in campus
How can Beres prove that the money is really going to waste? How does he know that those funds aren’t being used to help the medical students get a better clinical? I agree that every student deserves to get into their “dream” college, so not only will the common app help with get there but also help start them with the path they need to be on. Just because so many of the applicants who applied didn’t get accepted doesn’t mean they weren’t being given a chance. I wonder what percentage of those students who didn’t get accepted withdrew the opportunity themselves because they couldn’t afford it once they got accepted.
Students who attend community college can simply live at home and not have to fear the extra expenses. If a student does decide they want a four year degree, starting off at a community college and then transferring to a university is much cheaper than entering a university right out of high school. It is much easier to get into a community college right after high school versus having to wait to be accepted by a university. There are also many things universities look at that community colleges do not, such as standardized test scores, class rank, and academic GPA. Community college is also more convenient than a university.
Sometimes parents, faculty and others tend to idealize their college experience and remember it as that peaceful time when they had few worries or responsibilities. To students currently attending college, however, the process is often stressful and frustrating. The competition for grades, the need to perform, relationships, career choice, and many other aspects of the college environment cause stress. Before condemning stress outright, we need to understand that stress is only harmful when it is excessive. Much of the stress that we all experience is helpful and stimulating.
Although many people want to experience living on campus at a big name university, community colleges provide better opportunities without costing a fortune. In the end, students will be floating in their dreams rather than drowning in
Universities favor grade point averages, high standardized test scores, advanced placement courses, and any other reflection of above average education. A high school dropout does not have the privilege of enrolling in advanced placement classes, nor the privilege of gaining the statistics needed to score above average on standardized placement tests. By allowing guns in schools, it lowers the students learning ability and causes them to feel better off by dropping the class, which leads to a ruined life in the future. Not only is dropping out of school a problem because students fear teachers, but students can also fear other
When someone becomes an adult, move out of their parent’s home, and go out into the world on their own they may or may not decide to go to college. Whether they do or not, college is for the most part instrumental for a person to succeed in life and have a career, attending college and successfully graduating can be a triumphant milestone. Being a college graduate can affect your life in several different ways. Whether they are in college for a better job offering financial stability, a different career in something they love doing or just to prove to oneself that they can achieve greater. College will help a person get where they want to be.

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? Service Learning isn’t the first solution when it comes to thinking about having fun for most college students. People don’t think they will have the time to do it, and it will take time away from studying, but what if it’s part of the class?
