Going to college can be expensive, especially after the four or five years it takes you to finish your undergraduate degree. The average American student graduates from college owing $20,000 in debt. However, there are ways to make your college experience less of a financial burden, and applying for scholarships is a fantastic way to do so. Not only will you receive financial rewards, but winning a scholarship can also help you gain stable employment after graduation or help you out if you're looking to apply for grad school.
As a student you have many ways to keep in touch with your student body - texting, email, Facebook, Twitter, etc. These methods of communicating with your friends are completely open to the public, and you can imagine hearing things like "Look what Brian texted me!" or "Look what Mallory posted on Seth's wall!" Avoid using social media incorrectly and you will avoid some social stress. Check out some tricks of the trade below in order to skip a few bumps down your path as a student.
As you're deciding which colleges to apply to and considering which college you want to be a student at, it is important to consider these three factors before making your decision. The social prestige of a college, the graduate school placement of a college and how employers view the college should all impact where you decide to study. With the economy the way it is now, it is imperative that you do your research in order to find out which college will present you with the best opportunities after graduation.
When it comes to marking a test or essay grading, you may think you know how your teacher or professor works. However, there are certain aspects of grading that may come as a surprise to students. Read these ten things your teacher won't tell you about grading, and then maybe refine how you write an essay or prepare for a test!
As a student especially, doing a presentation or speaking in public can be nerve-wracking. All eyes are on you and no one else can help you move things along. You are the deciding factor in the presentation; you alone make it or break it. Much of the anxiety that arise from presentations do not actually originate from outside sources. Unless you are a stand-up comedian in a packed room on a Friday night, most of the time you will find that your audience is both quiet and respectful. Any pressure or anxiety you feel before going onstage and making that speech actually comes from yourself.
Studying is one of the most hated terms in the English dictionary; well, only if you're a student that is. The older most students get, usually around high school and into college or university, the more time is spent studying for quizzes, tests and exams.
Some people emphasizes that the true human behavior emerges from the inclination to indulge in evil. Corruption has always dominantly manifested within humans in greed and deceit. People have to learn to be virtuous. Furthermore, it justifies the reason for the decadence and the crimes within society such as murder, rape, and thievery. Even throughout history, it has been documented that mankind has always been involved in warfare and conflicts.
A society exists as the representation of the unity created by the people. The communities are composed of many different individuals, yet similar as humans with the right for freedom. However, those who suffer from poverty or burdened by physical disabilities are recognized as weak and incapable. They epitomize the disadvantaged victims in the endeavor for survival and diminished into degrading inferiority… while in contrast, the rich dominate with accumulating wealth and in status authority.
Late night study sessions are quintessential aspects of high school. The terrifying sugar-induced rush, the stockpiles of coffee and soda, and the blaring music all lead to one thing: last-minute procrastination.
There is simply not enough time throughout the week or even in the day. Weekends are spent having fun, going to parties, and being lazy, not studying in a dark little room. But then, what time is left for schoolwork? A night is not infinite and we can’t all conjure up time-turners.
Remember in middle school, when you watched all of those movies about high school and just thought “wow, I’m going to go to high school and be so cool.”But then you got to high school and nobody was waiting for you outside of the church, you never had Saturday detention with five stereotypical kids, and you never took down John Tucker or the Plastics. So you aren’t as cool as the kids in the movies, and honestly, it kind of sucks. Trust me, I’m in the same boat as you.
