Even doe you have your life well planned you never know how is going to end up. That is why, never mind which way I decide to go for life that I will always desire to have all the people around me and me happy. Each year at university I reconsider how I will like my life to be. Each year I am more conscious of putting effort on my courses, having good grades and doing internships where I can take the most of it. All the previous aspects mentioned are the ones that the majority of parents would expect from their children to do at University.
They expect the best of me, and so by going to college, I will not only have fulfilled their goals for me, but I will have accomplished one of the goals I have set for myself. In our culture, when parents come to the age where they can’t support themselves, it is the duty of the children to look after them. We don’t just throw our elders into retirement homes and visit them twice every year. We are expected to meet their wants and needs, and that will not be possible without a good education, which will then lead to a good job. As you know, a college education is good for each individual, but not only that, it is good for the country.
I have always envisioned myself going to college because I certainly value education. I believe that the more education I receive, the more valuable I am to this generation of the work force. Not only does my passion of learning hold place in the reasoning behind why I want to go to college, but because of my role models growing up. My parents both encourage me on a daily basis to go to college, and have encouraged my initiative to seek more in life. My father once explained that he once had this opportunity to receive a free ride to college but decided to stay home and start a family.
It can also be used as a opportunity for production and growth. I believe that the road to a college degree is painful, but necessary to make a better living. I knew that right after high-school, I would be on a new road to life. For me, college wasn’t a choice. Even though it was pushed on me by my family as I grew older, I knew myself that I wanted to be the one to help my family out and I was determined to be successful.
Isn’t that kind of wrong many ways? Teachers need to show that college is worth attending to and that it’ll make you successful in the long run. Instead of talking about the irrelevant topics towards the end of your junior year and all of senior year, they should be focused on teaching you about the different ways that you could go about paying for school. There are numerous ways, scholarships, loans, financial aid, GI bill, and more. There are tons of scholarships that you are able to qualify for.
Did you, will you, or are you going to college? Everyone always says that it is a good idea, but will it really make a difference in your life? Does postsecondary education actually change the amount of money you will earn? According to many studies and surveys in recent years, education after high school has clearly become a necessity. Going to school after getting a high school diploma is important because it is a requirement for many jobs, it increases the likelihood of a better salary, and it will benefit individuals by helping them discover their interests and meet their goals.
College is worth the money because it prepares you for a career, but most of all prepares you for the future and growth as an adult. When applying to college much is evaluated for acceptance. According to College Board .org, Admissions offices review each application for more than a GPA, and test scores. They review applications to see ones character, and what personal qualities you have, what makes you unique, and how you will contribute to the campus, do you have leadership abilities. When I graduated high school my parents could not afford for me to go to college.
Unless the country is willing to more fully fund higher education for all, ensuring that everyone goes to college is a dream. Although I grant that college prepared people for life, I still maintain that it important in life. College will teach young adult about time management and show them how to take note very well to help them prepared for a test. According to Freeman Hrabowski, “college prepare people for jobs,
In our society college is regarded by many people to be one of the main components to being successful. From the moment we are small children our parents stress the importance for schooling, receiving good grades, and getting in to a good college so that one day we can have a fulfilling career. The father of pragmatism John Dewey once said “Education is not preparation but, life itself” (Dewey, John Pioneers in our Field: John Dewey – father of Pragmatism, http://www.scholastic.com/teachers/article/pioneers-our-field-john-dewey-father-pragmatism, internet) However, as adults we choose to attend college for many different reasons and greatly motivating factors. As with many other people I have had some trials and tribulations I have had to overcome in life. Instrumental in me even having the strength to make it through them was my father Jerry.
My career goal is to help youth find a career path that they love and want to pursue for a lifetime. I believe that a Master of Arts in Counseling would help me to facilitate this goal. A person’s career is such a part of an individual’s identity, in my opinion; it should be commonplace for individuals to begin exploring career paths in early childhood. A degree in Counseling with a School emphasis would allow me to work in the school system to help students begin to explore their employable interests. I choose Regent to continue my education after exploring graduate schools in my senior year of college.
