But I am very glad that I became and chose to be an Ashford University student. For this reason is because I can do my homework and turn it in on time and etc. But I was so nervous that I would not be able to make. I have been having a good time learning all these new strategies and all the new technology as well. I am a very busy mom and I do end up falling behind which I do not like when it happens.
Tyler Tungate Mr. Stamp English 4 August 4, 2014 Rough Draft In “College In America” Caroline Bird states that college is overrated, and a waste of your money. She believes there are other ways to get training for a job other than college. Bird’s view of college is she doesn’t believe it’s the best way to get training for a job because most of the time you don’t use half of the stuff you learned in college. In our century everyone now wants a college degree when you’re applying for a job.
The other side states that you should go to college to achieve the life-time job you would love. The article, Not going to College is a Viable Option, by Lawrence B.Schlack, describes how plenty of honorable and valuable choices for the year after high school. For example, taking time of to travel, work and public service is also another productive action to take with your life. In the article, Want to Get Into College? Learn to fail, by Angel Perez, states that “Kids all around the world are under pressure to be perfect.” Making it a lower standard of students wanting to go to college.
More and more teenagers are just being told to go either by a parent or an elder because it is good for them. In the essay, Where College Fails Us. Caroline Bird states, “college has never been able to work its magic for everyone.”(168) That’s why I agree with Bird, college is not for everyone and college does fail us. I will point out issues discussing important matters and compare them with Bird’s essay, “where college fails us.” College has become a very important issue to parents and elders. They want what is best for them, so they are willing to do whatever it takes to force the teenager into a new environment, such as college.
Seems kind of pointless, most athletes don't go pro after college, so I why not get the full educational experience? Getting special treatment in school just because you’re an athlete is not fair. College is way to difficult for people to get special treatment just because of a person’s special talent. How about for students who are honor students? All their hard work doesn’t mean anything?
Students have little say over what classes they will take and when they will take them, as most of the classes are pre-arranged. On the other hand, college is voluntary and can be very expensive to attend. Because attendance is optional (and costly), students tend to be more motivated and are there because they have a clear plan for their futures. Generally, college professors will not hold students’ hands and will not offer one-on-one attention, unless asked. College professors expect students to be mature enough to understand the material or ask for help when they do not.
Whatever we are going to do we need to have some education. People who go through life without study latter when they start a family they are going to suffer because now in days minimum we need to have the high school diploma to get a job. Without education, a human being is incomplete because it is what makes us more intelligent and creative. This is why we have a lot of things the makes us
High School Vs College Does High school really prepare you for college? As a High school senior I felt prepared, but now as a College Freshman I'm not so sure. High school, as well as college is just another part in everyone’s lives. Almost everyone goes through such a transition between two very diverse and different worlds. These diverse worlds can be compared and contrasted by everyone; however, it is impossible to predict extenuating circumstances that you will go through.
In order to have the right preparation you have to go to college to get the neccesary skills to grow as a profesional in the future. There you will acquire a great valuable knowledge in the specific study you want to major on it. There is another sad reason behind attending college after a personal issue in life. Some people goes in depression of not finding themselves after been graduating from high school. Some of them could be at home doing nothing but mere thinking negatively with some fear inside their minds.
Balancing Responsibilities For many of us college students the days of the laid back high school lifestyle is in the past. We can easily become stressed and overwhelmed by school, and even adjusting to the college life itself can take a toll on us. The challenge of balancing so many responsibilities and the failure to do so can lead to many frustrations. As a college student myself, I always have so much to do and not enough time to do it. Managing college was definitely a challenge for me until I learned to embrace it and learn from my experiences.
