- According to Fafsa a graduation rate is the percentage of a school’s first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Fafsa also stated that a retention rate is the percentage of a school’s first-time, first-year undergraduate students who continue at that school the next year.

- I’m 10 years old and my parents just dropped me off at Camp Young Judaea for the first time. I’m nervous, but excited; my sister has been coming here for years, and I’ve heard so much about her friends and their shenanigans. I’m shy, but there are 20 other girls in my cabin; I’m sure that at least one of them will be my friend. The first day proves uneventful; I’ve made one friend who is self-proclaimed “weird” like me, but it’s already clear that the other girls are way more interested in makeup and boys than I’ll ever be....   [tags: Transgender, Gender, Third gender]

The First Time I Read Orlando By Virginia Woolf

- Orlando by Virginia Woolf The first time I read Orlando by Virginia Woolf, I was very confused. It seemed that the book was about time travel, as if Orlando was like Dr. Who or Sam Beckett from Quantum Leap. Then the lead character changes gender and decades so effortlessly without any explanation or alarm. Upon further investigation, I realized how interesting Orlando and Virginia Woolf really were, especially for the time period. The plot context doesn’t really necessarily matter. Like Roger Ebert writes in Chicago Sun-Times, "it is not about a story or a plot, but about a vision of human existence." Woolf wrote this faux-biography as playful fun and without too much seriousness....   [tags: Gender, Sex, Gender role, Virginia Woolf]
