41: School's Role In Our Life
... to work in a specific field. Of course, those years are broken down into several levels, some of them being more liked than others. Two important steps that we go through are high school and college. Even though some people would think they are almost similar, yet there are significant differences between them. The cost of high school education is not the same as the cost of college education. Also, some differences apply from an academic point of view. Typically, the social environment also differs from high school to college, a fact that can be related to the question of freedom versus responsibility. It is true to say that college is more expensive than high school. Of course, it provides a higher level of ...
42: Robert E. Lee
... greatest heroes of that war, Robert E. Lee. It is a thorough, in depth record of the life of Lee and begins with a detailed account of his family history and his birth, through his college years, military experience and his work in later life to his death on October 12, 1870. The first few pages set the scene by listing a substantial amount of facts about the names and backgrounds ... maintain the household without the presence of a father, and with little money, taught him valuable lessons in self-discipline, lessons which supported him well in his military career. Since there was no money for college, Robert entered the U.S. Military Academy in 1825 to pursue a career in the military. He was fortunate in becoming a Cadet at the Institution at a time when the Superintendent was Major Sylvanus ... remuneration were offered to Lee, both in his own country and abroad, but he had no desire to enter into politically controversial activities. In the Summer of 1865 he was offered the Presidency of Washington College (renamed Washington & Lee University after his death), in Lexington, VA.

43: Racism in Colleges
... time, they had every right to go there; but since the governor was so anti-black and pro segregation, he didn't like it one bit. As the two black students prepared to enter the college, George Wallace stood in the doorway, blocking their way addressing the need for segregation. He refused to move, so the national guard was called in to restore order and admit Jones and Hood to the University of Alabama. This was an important moment in black history because it marked the first time a black person had been admitted into an all white college. Although laws pertaining to civil rights were enacted that ended segregation, hatred and racism still continued; and it appears to be even stronger now than it ever has been. Today there is no legal segregation ... many diverse ethnic groups and cultural backgrounds that populate the same colleges. With this great amount of people, there is naturally much tension between the many groups. From this tension arises the hate groups on college campuses. Whether they are against whites, blacks or any other groups, they cause many problems in the steady flow of education. Although everyone has the freedom of speech, even if the majority disagrees with ...

... is. In front of him is a test. At the very last minute his roommate awakens him. It’s only another anxiety dream.

They usually have a hard time understanding school guidelines and deciding what major they want to study. It is very stressful to read and understand ...
45: Pay For Student Athletes
... not students holding jobs but the agents bribing students. Even by having jobs this will not help the NCAA from sports agents. Another proposed idea is to directly pay student athletes for playing for the college. This idea has been passed around for years but has always been turned down. During the 1970's and 80's, NCAA director Walter Byers wanted to remain status quo. Byers was the only executive director the NCAA ever had. In that capacity he was more responsible than any other person for current policies governing college athletics. He built a reputation as a relentless taskmaster, known for persuasive negotiating skills, creative thinking and attention to detail. Under his leadership, the NCAA became a multimillion industry. Now with his retirement in 1987 ... which NCAA rules now bar them from doing. This could conceivably allow them to endorse products, just as coaches do, 3)Athletes would be free from NCAA rules restricting their ability to move from one college to another, 4)Players could consult freely with agents in making sports career choices, 5)States would amend their workmen's compensation laws to require that major colleges universities provide coverage to varsity athletes( ...

But the mountains ... They are there to make you fight for what you want. And I feel that you have to fight to succeed this day and age. My fight is on for me to go on to college. I want to go to college more than anything in the world. The reason it is so important to me is I would like to be the first one to graduate from college in my family. I could then be ...

She stayed at the University of Alabama until 1949. She also studied for a year ...

48: Are Things Equal Between The Sexes In College Sports?
Are Things Equal Between The Sexes In College Sports? "Monday night football won't be shown this week, instead women's field hockey will be aired." Monday night football has been a long lasting American pastime and a change like this would tend ... budgets and more scholarships that would allow men's teams to be larger. This two to one ratio shows that participation is not equal and therefore women are discriminated against. These examples of inequality in college sports shows that there is a problem and it has been a problem for some time. Women have less money budgeted for their sports, less scholarship money, and there are a lot fewer female athletes ... lead to a raise in taxes in order to allow state schools to continue having sports programs. Another possible affect is the rise in a school's tuition. Parents wishing to send their children to college could face a higher tuition resulting from the money it takes to add women's sports. Parents with athletically gifted male children could find it harder for their children to receive athletic scholarships, as ...
49: High School/College Contrasts
High School/College Contrasts I have spent four years in high school and only two and a half months in college, but I have already noticed a lot of differences between the two. Some of the changes were good, but there were also some bad ones. The first difference I noticed right away was the fact ... of your classes every day of the week. In high school, you had anywhere from three to six classes every day. They weren't very long, but that gave you homework almost every night. In college, however, you normally have about five classes. Some of the classes met twice a week, and others met three times a week. This gave you more time to do the assigned homework and more ...
50: Binge Drinking On Americas Cam
... s Campuses What do a DWI ticket, frequent memory lapses, falling behind in schoolwork, and unplanned sexual activity have in common? If you guessed that these are the most common results of binge drinking by college students, you would be correct (Thompson, J.J. 63). A recent survey revealed that almost half of college students engage in "binge drinking", and half of those who binge drink do so regularly (McCormick, John; Kalb, Claudia 89). It is not the half that drinks responsibly that needs addressing or programs targeting them ... time America has managed to keep the same percentage of its students from drinking entirely for the last five years, binge drinking has been on the rise (Thompson, J.J. 63). While 49 percent of college students binge, only 28 percent of their non-college counterparts do (McCormick, John; Kalb, Claudia 89), clearly illustrating the divide that exists between students and non-students.
