This paper focuses on reasons as to why not all students should get the four years bachelor’s degree and offers alternatives to these programs. Having a college degree increases one’s job prospects, but with increased number of graduates there is no guarantee that money spent is worth it. In essence, having university education for all simply seeks to churn out more graduates without focusing on the economic fundamentals and cost implications of college education. Mounting debt burdens on graduates is a cause of concern because this impacts negatively on their financial stability. The promise of a well paying job is not guaranteed meaning that for some students it would be better to engage in vocational areas.
Vision To have SMCCD be the middleware services provider for all community colleges. Colleges are under immense pressure of new forms of accountability measures from their accrediting agencies, resulting in these organizations having to adopt new means of providing their core services. These changes to procedures have come at a time of shrinking budgets nationwide, and the hope that new technologies will permit these institutions to fulfill these new mandates. It is the view of the author that in fact this will not occur for the vast majority, as they do not have the necessary resources, budgets, nor experiences to properly navigate this transition. As colleges turn to an ever-expanding sea of vendors to realize this transition, little has been done to address core challenges.
The author expressed in his writing that university also have to spend money to create new programs such as international advising and mental health services for international undergraduates. Also, an English course has to be established in order to help the non-native student to perform well in their study while in American university. Besides, the rise also affects domestic students as they faced difficulty being admitted into the university because of seats that have been taken by outside state students. Lastly, Pope also revealed that the rise also had brought isolation to the foreign student as they encountered language and cultural
That semester, I further challenged myself by working on a design of my own creation, a design not assigned by my instructor. While it would have been easier to accept the instructor' s lessons and just follow his ideas, I realized that I could never take the easy way again now that I discovered that the beauty of architecture lies in learning it myself. That semester helped formulate my approach towards architecture and influence my design decisions to this day. Although self-motivation is extremely important, seeking the guidance and critique of others is essential to good design since others can find what I may have overlooked. One critic who has been particularly crucial to the development of my work is Craig Scott, a Progressive Architecture Awards Winner in 1996,who worked together with Homa Fardjadi and Sima Fardjadi.
Change in eating habits is one of the most significant changes a college student experiences. There are many different factors for this change such as being away from home and home-cooked meals, late night snacks, increase in alcoholic beverage consumption, along with the fact that many college students now have a meal plan to eat at their college dining halls. At Northeastern University, the Dining Services Department works very hard to try to accommodate the many different needs of their students. Bill Fantasia (Director of Residential Dining), failed to respond to several attempts to set up an interview regarding the dining hall’s healthy aspects, however, research and trips to the dining hall provided information on the options offered. Many college dining halls have a limited amount of diverse foods.
However experts have stated that the idea of the so called “Freshman 15,” is not that accurate. Every college student is obviously not going to gain fifteen pounds. However I believe that it is possible and it is a problem for many college students. College life completely changes eating habits among college students. Most students do not make the right choices about eating and exercising.
Many college students believe that because fast food has that many calories, they would get energy from it. However, when you eat that quantity of calories your body doesn’t digest them, so your body doesn’t get the energy necessary and the student start to feel tired all day. When these students start to feel tired all day, they will not be as productive as they used to be, so they start to lose track of everything. As was previously stated, although fast food can save college student some time, fast food brings many health problems, physical changes and money problems to the college students. It would be great if college gave free courses for cooking or how to control yourself when you are a freshmen.
Some students in my classes would have to leave in the middle of class just to go to the bathroom because of the food they have eaten at lunch. Plenty of food was wasted throughout the school year and I just think the school is wasting their money on the food they buy. This is because not many people wanted to eat the food and because what was being served on the lunch trays was unwanted it is unwanted. At Indiana State the food is sometimes overcooked and tough on the teeth. One time a friend of mines tried to cut her meat with a knife, but she could barely cut the knife through.
Most human beings begin college with high expectations of obtaining a degree to become successful in life. Many students are not academically prepared to meet the requirements needed to complete the courses they are enrolled in. The freedom of becoming an adult takes a great toll on the education of new comers to a college. Half of college students are likely to never receive a college degree. Attributes that contribute to a student failing in college is the lack of skills that prepares students for a higher education.
There are so many students who would extremely grateful to attend any four year institution but can’t because of the lack of funds. College life can be very stressful, and the process can is very frustrating to most students the first two years. When the cost of college tuition is compared to the 21 century financial economy the cost does not make sense, because for a middle-class family it is impossible to afford sending their child to any four-year institution. It hard for students to graduate with the stress to pay-off hundreds and thousands of dollars in loans. Going to college is stressful enough without the need to worry about how we’re going to pay for it and what other costs will continue to rise with getting a degree afterwards.
