The United States gives everyone an opportunity to get a college degree. On top of the college opportunities give a great chance for jobs after the college education. Many foreigners come to the United States to get an education but they also tend to stay here, due to the job opportunities.

In an article titled “Obama Plans Community-College Initiative”, Obama told reporters that twelve billion dollars was going towards community colleges.
To achieve my goal of placement with NASA or Lockheed Martin I must pursue rigorous studies at MSU and continue a high level of achievement. During my two years at the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science, I have taken advantage of the most rigorous science and mathematics classes available to high school students in our state. Importantly, however, I have learned many lessons about being away from home. I came to MSMS without knowing any of my classmates, but the bonds I have made with my friends at MSMS will last through the future years. My MSMS friends have become my family, and I want to have the same experience at college.
Had we followed our father’s vision of our future, our personal legend would have been to attend college and improve the family with every generation to come.

I feel this way because without passing the WST I cannot sign up for some of the classes I need. This is more impacted since I only have a couple of years left to graduate. This would make anybody feel inadequate and makes me feel like Santiago.
A couple weeks passed and Jane decided to return home with her family in Albany, New York while Uncle Leland came to California to stay with my family and help my dad and their younger brother with the family shop during the gold rush.

By doing so, she created her own legacy and her own tradition to be remembered for. Although many will remember my uncle as the man who created Stanford University, he was about much more throughout his life.

This all coalesced when I culminated high school with both a diploma and an associate's degree. My quest toward a higher education was by no means a simple one. Even now, at CSU, I had to defer my admission for one semester for an internship at Cleveland Clinic to earn money to pay for my classes.
My Journey to College I first came to the university during spring break of my junior year of high school. At the time I was just visiting the three main universities in Arizona so that I would be able to make an educated decision as to where I wanted to get my college education. There were many events showing me the way to this university and little did I know that these events would come upon me and that they would show me the doors to the place where I was truly meant to be. I had a small thought in mind of becoming a chef or something else in the hospitality field. My mom had heard about NAU’s hospitality college and informed me that it was within the top ten.
Choosing the right college is a big deal, and most students take this decision very seriously. When a student goes to visit a college, they get to form their own options and experience their potential future home for the next four years. College visits are a huge part of growing up. When I stayed overnight for the first time at Northwestern College in Orange City, IA, I got to personally experience the college life. I got to explore the college to see if it was academically excellent, affordable, had a good student community, and most importantly had God at the center of it all.
My main plan is to go to Caltech university and once I graduate with a bachelor’s degree in Aerospace, and take the two engineering exams, I can work at JPL as an Aerospace engineer. Since the acceptance rate is eight percent, and the overall cost for four years is over three hundred and sixty thousand dollars, I have a backup plan. Because my dad fought in the gulf war, I am able to attend any UC school for free. My family just learned this recently, and it sound way better than $360,000, although with Caltech you can get a job at JPL right away. Another possibility is Cal Poly Pomona, because it is also a good school for engineering.
Freed after the American Civil War, he went with his mother to Malden, W. Va., to join Washington Ferguson, whom she had married during the war. At about age 16 Booker set out for Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute, which had been established by the chief of the Freedmen's Bureau to educate former slaves. He walked much of the way, working to earn the fare to complete the long, dusty journey to Virginia. For his admission test he repeatedly swept and dusted a classroom, and he was able to earn his board by working as a janitor. After graduation three years later he taught in Malden and at Hampton.
My son decided to transfer to Oxford while my daughter decided to attend my alma mater. With my children away at school, my husband and I planned a year' s vacation around the world. Although he insisted on bringing his mini-fax machine, his pocket computer, and his video-phone on the trip, he promised business would not get in the way, and he kept his promise. Our first stop— New York. I wanted to marvel in the Statue of Liberty' s third renovation and catch the revival of the works of Andrew Lloyd Webber on Broadway.
