I'm Going to College - I'm Going to College Neither my grandmother, nor any of my great aunts, went on to college.  It was too expensive for their family.  My great Aunt Nancy, however, did try to take night classes at the University Extension, which was held at her high school.  Unfortunately, she was unable to continue paying for these classes, so she left the University Extension program with only twelve credits earned. Aunt Nancy just continued to work at the job she acquired, right out of high school, and work her way up through the ranks at this job.  There was no push by her parents to continue her education, and therefore, there was no pressure on her to attend college.  Aunt Nancy had once told me, "There is great value in a college education, for career purpose.  It is so necessary now, where as years ago it was not as essential."  She also explained to me that college can help to build better social skills, which will be used in everyday life.  Now that Aunt Nancy is retired, she reads a lot.  When she was younger, her mother only took her to the city library three times a year to get books to read.  So, as a child she did not read as much as she reads now.  While in school, she only preformed the necessary reading and writing that was required.  Now, she reads the newspaper, books, or a magazine almost everyday.  My mother, on the other hand, did attend college.  Actually, she has attended college twice now.  The first time she went, she gained a degree as a Medical Laboratory Technician.  Later in life, she went back to college and attained her accounting degree.  My mother decided that she was not happy as a Medical Technician, so she wanted to go back to school to learn of what fields would interest her....   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 1327 words

Cheating Incidences, Perceptions of Cheating, and the Moral Development Level of College Students - Introduction Academic dishonesty is a threat to every student and every institution of higher education.
