The life decisions of the two subjects graduating high school and eighteen year olds may seem different, but are similar in some ways whether its traveling, choosing a future career, or taking on many new responsibilities. Everyone should have the chance to make their dreams come true even if it is just a short-term goal because all short-term goals lead to long-term goals in the ending. I would recommend this essay to pre-graduated students in senior year of high school and newly eighteen year olds, for it can help them in the future when determining what to do when they get out of high school or for their future career in life. No matter how hard you try everyone can succeed in something it just takes the amount of effort.
The grand transition from high school to college is something like childhood to adulthood. Some things that one has experienced in high school will be the same in college, just a little more intense. For example, the classroom settings, coursework, associates, social life and grading scales may be a little more difficult for one to become immune to in the beginning. One should begin to prepare for the college life in their last high school days. The exceedingly life-changing progression of one’s life from high school to college life presents several major changes, yet preserves a slight comfort of immune of high school.
While high school and college may share some of the same aspects, it is obvious that college brings about more freedom. The transition from high school to college is a defining moment in anyone’s life. You really begin to figure out who you are, and where you will be. Independence becomes the norm in college, because the prying eyes of mom and dad are now a distant memory. You also get to explore your surroundings and find life long friends.
After graduation, all students take their own path and that friendship built for years suddenly banished. On the other hand, when young students get to college they have to adapt to a new world. They might not have the same friends but they surely will have better ones with the same goals and levels as theirs own. College is the time to try new stuff, form new friends and discover what you want to do with the rest of your life. “You are no longer confined to the cliques and pettiness that often comes with high school” says Megan M. on her article.
College students should have the right to choose their own class schedule because it is very important for them to become more independent, responsible and productive person in the future. Firstly, college students can learn new things and experience through choosing their own class schedule. It is because the choosing of time schedule and registration process is done by them and none other people. During the registration process, they can learn how to apply and register the subject and gain more knowledge through the process of their registration. For example, college students will learn to find the solution when they have face problem about their subject’s registration.
In “Should Everyone Go to College?” Isabel Sawhill and Stephanie Owen make a strong valid point on whether or not college is for everyone. For many students ready to leave high school, wondering whether they should attend college is an issue that may lay heavy on one teenagers mind. There are a few factors that could be a difficult decision depending on a person’s goal they are working towards. Some students jump right into the workforce after high school. Others may sign up for the military after graduation.
Most people keep friends from elementary school all the way to high school. Although when heading into college nobody really knows each other, so it is much easier to meet new people. The classmates in higher education are not only becoming the student’s friends, but also are the key foundation to the beginning of a work life network. Without the help of a network of friends in college, professors, and academic administrators, it would make it extremely difficult to achieve the first step toward the student’s first professional career. College freshmen usually meet friends at college orientation, in their dormitories, or just on campus.
College teaches students discipline and organization (or it should) and how to meet deadlines under pressure. College exposes students to multiple points of view and helps people wade through multiple levels on information in order to discern the relevance and correctness of this information”. Basically, college can do more than just preparing student for their career, but also learning all the other aspect as well. “College is the center of learning” says Melissa Maley. In high school, students only learn the basic skills unless they take specific college classes.
Students have different preferences or requirements in planning their time to make their purposes. This is one of my points to support that students should have the right to right to choose their own class schedule. Some people will prefer to attend class or study during the morning while there are some people like to attend evening or night classes. While they were studying in primary and secondary school, they didn’t have any choices or minor authority in choosing their study period. Studying in college is apart of life.
College can prepare a student for life in so many more ways than for a career. However, in the way that college is supposed to prepare soon-to-be-productive students, that statement could be right on. As a student myself, I’ve found college to be a little bit of both. I often find myself asking, "How will this help me later in life?" But, then again, college gives me more control over my life and where I want it to go.
