As a high school sophomore, I know that school can be very stressful. I have to balance between extracurricular, activities such as band, orchestra, or drama, and school work. This can make it very challenging to maintain a high GPA. Unfortunately, some people don’t want to go to college because they think it will just be four more years like high school. Both my mom and dad are professors so I know a lot about what goes on at a college or university. I can tell you right now that college can be one of the best experiences of your life, and before you go out into the world it is probably a good idea to be educated beyond secondary school.

One of the biggest arguments against a college education is not being able to go work when you turn eighteen. Many people believe that this will cause them to fall behind and not be able save up enough money. A college education will let you “skip the line” and start working with better jobs, in better places, with better conditions, and on top of that, the unemployment rates for high school graduates have increased to 8.1% in the last year (“Value of a Degree”). The bottom line is that better jobs come from a better education.

A huge perk of going to college is learning to be independent. In the real world there isn’t someone serving you and doing things for you, so it is important to learn how to take care of yourself and be responsible for yourself. When you turn eighteen, you are considered an adult. It is good and important to go to an environment away from your parents in order to obtain a level of independence. What is a better way to learn how to be independent than in college away from your parents and with your friends.

The number one reason that people don’t go to college is because it costs a lot of money. Although college does cost a lot of money, you can…...

...apartment community, in order to clarify the value of the product and set the stage for the remainder of the plan. Community Weaknesses: It is equally important to uncover any weaknesses that challenge the community. In order to overcome an objection, we must first be aware of it. What objections are likey to occur over time on this community? Address them and suggest avenues to overcome these weaknesses. Community Goals Before you begin the plan, quantify the need for this marketing effort. Is there a lease-up time schedule? If so, figure out how many rentals are needed per week or per month in order to meet said schedule. Assuming a 35% closing ratio, how many prospective residents must the community see each week or month to meet the rental goal? What renewal percentage will you try to achieve? These will make up your “hard number” goals. Finally, you may want to nail down some “soft number” goals--the number of hours spent on outreach marketing, the number of follow up calls needed, and the number of resident retention contacts needed to achieve these “hard number” goals. Weekly goals can be the easiest to manage, as on-site teams can gauge their effectiveness at a glance. In this section of the plan, it is beneficial to write out the goals in paragraph form and then state them below in list form. This section will give weight to the remainder of the plan and can help justify marketing expenses contained within. Visits per week: Rentals per......

After High School

...Essay After high school, when I first started college I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do with my life at the time, but I had planned to be a business man of some sort and get my degree in business, then I realized that in today’s economy most new businesses are not that successful, plus you need money to actually start up a business on your own. So I did some thinking and have decided to get my degree in science and become a pharmacist. The reason I choose this field is because they get paid quite a bit annually, they are in demand as well as doctors and physicians assistants, so you wouldn’t have to worry about losing your job due to having too many of them. If I go through with becoming a Pharmacist, I would want to work at a big building of some sort, for example, a hospital, or somewhere besides a drugstore like Walgreens or CVS. The only thing as of now that I wouldn’t like about being a pharmacist is the fact they have to stand on their feet most of the day, which I wouldn’t mind if I could actually walk around to different areas of my workplace. Also the fact that what they do is going to be the same every day. If I decided not to become a pharmacist, I would probably think about being a physician’s assistant. My reason for that is because they also get paid well, you could learn and experience a variety of different things in that type of work, and their duties can change on certain days since they are assisting the actual physician. I don’t like the fact that...

After School Programs

...After School Programs Helping Kids Succeed 1,565 Words Parents now-a-days spend a lot of time working, and when they’re kids get out of school they have nowhere to go but an empty, unsupervised house. A lot of the time when kids are left alone for a long period of time, they tend to get in some trouble; whether it’s with their friends outside of the house, or alone at home. Many parents may not have the time or money to send their kids to a day care program, so they can’t really do anything about it. But many schools have the choice whether or not to have after school programs but decide not to because they don’t want to keep their school open after hours. It isn’t just the school’s decision though; it also depends on whether the school has the money to keep them open or not. According to USA Today: “Tight local budgets and reduced federal funding for police, along with new anti-terrorism duties, have stretched police departments and led to cuts in community programs for youths.” All kids need a safe place to be after school, even if it’s for study hall or a quiet place where they could do their homework. After school programs can help children a lot and in many ways. They have an impact on kids because it gives them something to do and it provides them with positive role models. Some of the ways that after school programs can help children is by giving them a safe and supportive learning environment after school, opportunities to experience new activities in arts,......

Preparing a School Improvement Plan

...Preparing A School Improvement Plan In the 1990’s the author was introduced to the school improvement plan of his school by being called into the principal’s office along with two other teachers and asked to read over and sign the document written by the principal. A quick reading through the document satisfied us that it was in English and had complete sentences, even if we did not fully appreciate every single acronym that was included. The author and another teacher made the mistake of asking for an explanation of all the acronyms, to which the principal responded positively and gave us the dubious distinction of preparing the document for the following year. One question turned a document generated by several hours of work by the principal into a team of two. Fifteen years later the team consists of sixteen individuals, including teachers, an administrator, a counselor, a district leader, and a parent. In addition, parents and community members are called to review the school plan with team members prior to its release to the public. The school improvement plan is required by several federal and state mandates such as Title One (ESEA, 1965), the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB, 2001), and the Texas Education Agency (TEA, 2011). These various mandates require that a school improvement plan is used by the school leadership in assuring the budgets from different federal and state agencies are properly planned out and accounted for. Since planning is necessary to......

...their phones in the car with the full knowledge that they are endangering themselves and everyone around them. (Monica Guzman). A quarter of all car crashes involve cellphone use, according to estimates by the National Safety Council—723,000 crashes so far this year. Texting on a handheld device while driving is illegal in 41 states; calling is banned in 12. Sixty-nine percent of Americans that the Centers for Disease Control Surveyed in 2011 said “they had made a handheld call from the car in the previous month.” And though 98 percent of them said they knew it was wrong, half of adults surveyed by AT&T last year admitted they had texted while driving. “Where u at”- These were the simple last words that Mariah West, a senior in high school who was one day away from graduation, saw in this world. On that fateful summer night, she was texting her friend on the way to the baseball game she was planning on attending. As she looked down at her phone to read the new text message, she lost control of her car, which proceeded to slide across the median, hit a bridge, and kill the young girl with a bright future. Officer Grant Hendrix of the Missouri State Highway Patrol was one of the first to arrive on the scene. He later described the horrific scene to reporters saying, “When I got to the scene, her face was disfigured from sliding down the roadway… Lying in the roadway in a large pool of blood I noticed her shoes and I thought this is a young girl. That’s the first thing I......

Grad School Career Plans

...How will the MBA program fit with my career plans? My career at IBM has taken a seemingly planned path to bring me where I am today with the corporation. In reality, my career has been a mix of exact choices, hard work, and a bit of surprise. I began my career at IBM in May of 2004 after receiving my Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Michigan State University. I was hired into a technical role as a circuit design engineer working on microprocessor design for IBM’s mainframe System Z servers. The opportunity to design and contribute as a member of a world-class design team was both extremely exciting and intimidating. The engineers at IBM are the best in the industry and many have made IBM their home for entire careers; I immediately set a goal to become a key contributor to the team while striving to learn as much as possible from my mentors and colleagues. My first mentor within the company gave me a piece of advice, he said: “Take every opportunity presented to you, large or small, and also be a team player” I took this to heart and made this a driving force in my career. This led me very quickly from an entry-level engineer in my first project to a unit and team lead a couple of years later. New pathways continued to present themselves and I jumped at each challenge with enthusiasm as my mentor’s advice echoed in my mind. I was afforded the opportunity to not only deliver on known work assignments, but also the......

After- School Jams

...SCOPE Introduction Nightlife or after-school jam is the collective term for any amusement that is available and more popular from the late evening to the early morning. Nightlife includes the public houses, night clubs, discotheques, bars, live music, concert, shows and sometimes restaurant that has cover charge for admission, and make their money on alcoholic beverages. Nightlife was supposed to be oriented for adults, but nowadays, teenagers preferably high school students are also engaged in this kind of verve. The effects of after- school jams of students has not been well examined. There has been no previous study that focuses on the effect of after- school jams in the academic performances of students. The tracking of academic performance fulfils a number of purposes. Areas of achievement and failure in a student's academic career need to be evaluated in order to foster improvement and make full use of the learning process. On this premise, this study was conducted. It was designed primarily to provide a view of the level of academic performance of students and its relationship with their preferred after- school jam. The researchers believed that preferred after- school jams of the students influence their academic performance. Thus, the determining of academic performance and frequency of their after- school jams is indeed imperative. Hopefully, the result of this study will serve as a basis for the correlation of after- school jams and academic performance of......
