I myself in entering into college had trouble getting all of the money that was needed to pay for my classes. I was still owing money to the school and had to obtain different documents and my parent’s information and keep getting my grant processed to get enough money that was needed to pay for classes. The constant reprocessing made me receive my Pell grant super late and had to end up paying for books out of pocket and had to wait to be reimbursed. Some students go about getting extra money to pay for classes by trying to get a job. Even getting a job poses as an issue, with the already lack of jobs being taken by people who sometimes even hold college degrees themselves leaves struggling college students penniless.
College tuition is already at such a high cost that it would be very detrimental if a student were to change their mind, often leaving them in insurmountable debt. And, there is often this stigma about students taking a year off before they head off to college or university, this again adds the the pressure to attend post-secondary. Finally, I feel that having a high school student pick a possible future occupation while they are still not sure what it is that they want in life. A side note, many teachers tell me that you don’t go to college to have job security later in life, but rather that you go to college to learn skills; the opposite is so ingrained in my student head that I feel that I have to go to school so I don’t fail in life. With all of this going on, colleges are getting ever harder to gain admission to.
However, as the semester unfolded and speeded up toward their first mid-term or finals, college students found themselves more stress because they have no way to cope with the increasing amount of work they must complete. For this reason, college students would not be able to put all their mind and effort into completing the required task. As a result, it forced them to lose interest in the class subject that they are studying and made them want to finish the task as fast as possible, disregarding the quality of the work they submitted. Moreover, other college students would be counting down each day until they luckily stumble across a campus closing dates so they would be able to catch up on their work. Many college students do not realize that they always have the choice to manipulate their time each day so that they would be able to utilize the most... ... middle of paper ... ...students to acknowledge that they are experiencing stress, while other alternatives may find that making college students believe that stress is good for them.
I wasn’t ready for the package of responsibility when I took my first steps as a UC Davis student. I was accustom to having assignments that didn’t require studying in high school, therefore, college homework became hard to manage. My high school strategy was to procrastinate I would wait till the last minute to finish an assignment, correspondingly I develop bad student strategies which soon led to consequences as a student in a UC. One of the consequences was developing an
She soon came to my assistance, but it took hours to clean the room, and to clean Mother's body. This kind of event never happens in daytime when helpers are at home. This might be another proof that famous "Murphy's Law" is correct. The development of Mother's symptoms of mental disturbance went from bad to worse. I used to ask a helper to come and take care of her while she was having her meals.
In college the workload tends to get tough. The key to success is time management. For me, when the workload gets tough I just think why I am here at college and what I came here to achieve. I always take time out of each day for studying because why come to college and not go to class? It pointless and a waste of time and money.
Throughout high school, it was difficult and stressful to decide my future career. Thinking about the future sounded like a “need to do” planning from teachers and family members. So I tried to start on planning my sophomore year, but doing the planning didn’t make any sense to me. Over the years in high school I started to wonder, “why was it so important to plan the future?” Is it because making plans will help us organize our life that is yet to come? I always thought that life can’t be predictable no matter how hard we try to change it.
Through my experience as a freshman, the complications I had entering college was not having enough money, working, and not putting enough effort. After high school, I decided to take a couple years off of school because I wanted to get a job and save up some money. I knew that I would not be able to pay for all of my classes , and still have money left over for my bills. After saving up for about a year and a half , I applied to Riverside Community College. I also applied for financial aid to see if that could help my financial situation.
Some programs, such as advanced English classes, are primarily focused on writing essays, which is hard to do without computers to work on. Teaching in this way is leading students to failure, not in school, but in life. They are not prepared for the real world with the way they are being taught to just “pass the test”, something I have heard from my teachers too often. Advanced classes tend to have problems because of the final test, lack of money being funded to these programs, as well as time restraints within the classroom. Teaching to the Test From elementary school to high school, students have to pass an exam at the end of the year and this determines whether they pass the class or not.
Attend College or a University is an important change in the life of the student and also in the family. Since we are children at the age of 3 years we start to attend school from prekindergarten to Elementary School, Middle school then High School and then a few of us to College. We spend almost half of our lives attending school but at the end of road the effort is worth. College is the final step to become successful but also it can be one of the most hardest. In the beginning of the school year I felt uncomfortable particularly in this class because I didn’t know anybody, also I didn’t have friends not because I was bad person but because the language but now at this point I have some friends not many the bad thing is that I still don’t lose the fear to speak and practice my English.
