What is the main thing that students look at before attending a school? Tuition fees. Everyone have a tendency of looking at the tuition fee and setting there life goal if they should spend that much just to attend school. On a Tulsa Community College site, the publisher of “Cost of Attendance” asserts that TCC offers the cheapest fee’s. As the publisher of the site, they state That the “Tuitions fees are $2,800” the “Book and Supplies are $1,560” the “Rooms are $8,694” the “Boards are $2,367” and “Transportation is $1,178”. These are by far the lowest prices to be observed for a high school senior. Tulsa Community College is really doing it’s best to help and support their students. You save a lot of money with these kinds of prices. Now turning
I believe each and every student is capable of learning and achieving academic success, however some children require individualized support to ensure their success. A strength I posses that supports high academic expectations for all Houston ISD students is my ability to motivate and empower young children of all types to want to be successful.

I have the ability to lead and differentiate engaging lessons where the diverse learning needs of all students are supported.

I use classroom management strategies to set students up for success.
When I was seven, I had to witness my older brother be kicked out of the house. This was such a traumatizing experience because my older brother was my role model. Additionally, as a young child, my little sister and I were frequently home alone due to my parents always working double shifts. Thus, once my brother left, I had to take on his responsibilities; consequently, I learned how to be a leader at a young age. This experience has allowed me to develop values such as excellence, leadership, truth and service that will contribute to the vision and legacy of Howard University.
The Wayne State University School of Medicine has become a top choice medical school for myself due to their focuses on leadership in medicine, community mentoring and outreach, and service based learning. Centered within the urban and evolving city of Detroit, the Wayne State University School of Medicine affords its students the chance to receive their education in, and provide service within, a very rich and diverse patient population. Being immersed within, experiencing, and understanding the diversities of others allows for students and professionals alike to find their identities, meanings, and purposes through connections with people in all walks of life. In this way, Wayne State has the ability to offer its medical students an unparalleled
The famous German physicist Albert Einstein once said, “If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?” Often in the classroom and life in general, many people assume that in order to research something, a person must first understand it, but that simply is not the case. The whole concept of research stems from human’s natural response to the unknown and the desire to understand it; almost all humans have used research to comprehend and attempt to solve problems. Personally, I have used research a great deal for personal and educational reasons. In high school, I used research for historical and literary papers, in order to better understand concepts, and to discover resources for almost every class. I also
Education is the often touted as the key to reducing socioeconomic inequality in today's society, but recent studies suggest that the education systems in the California may not be effective in serving its community college students. The California community college system supports 2.1 million students throughout California's 113 institutions (CCC Key Facts). According to a 2011 study conducted by California State University, Sacramento, 48% of community college students complete a degree/credential within 6 years. Specifically in 2009, the San Francisco Bay Area had only 7% of community college students being able to graduate within 2 years (Figure 16, Moore). These low completion rates reflect
Walden University prides itself on helping students accomplish their goals, and providing the necessary resources to succeed. The interconnection between Walden, my colleagues and myself, are all of equal value because one cannot properly function without the other. Therefore, when all three parts are simultaneously collaborating, it creates a harmonious equation for victory. Being able to find out and navigate the resources available through Walden, developing a positive and collaborative relationship with my peers, and being able to excel in an online work environment appropriately is the formula I need to achieve ultimate success.
Financial assistance is needed to help me meet my short and long term educational goals. At this time, Gardner-Webb University is my college choice. Gardner-Webb is a private school that better meets my learning style, as opposed to a larger state university. I feel that this college is the right match for me and will provide better opportunities to get involved and fulfil my spiritual needs as well. My involvement with sports, clubs, and summer camps has prevented me from working part time throughout high school except for the payment I receive for one week of camp during the summer. I also chose to take more challenging classes which required more time for studying. Therefore hindering me from contributing to my educational fund.
I transferred to Arizona State University in the last semester, I felt I had a Fulfilling campus life in the whole fall semester. I love the campus environment and wonderful class atmosphere, the people who are in the campus are enthusiastic. In the beginning, I applied W.P Carey Business School as B.S major, however, because I did not reach B.S ‘s requirement, I was admitted by B. A’s major. I did not have SAT score, and my high school did not give students ranking wither, therefore, I could not get in my target major. I thought I did not had SAT score and I was not the most top students in our high school could not reflect my real ability, let me explain several reasons to prove I have enough ability to get in B.S’s majors.
After moving into Concordia College on August 21st of 2015, many things in my life have changed.

I spent six years on studying in the United Stated, and I am finally earning my first degree in August. I started my college in Philadelphia in 2009, and I transferred to the Palomar College in 2010. I majored in per-nursing and spent three years on studying in the Palomar College. I completed fail my freshman year and my GPA was 1.7. However, I improved myself and gain 3.95 GPA in the Palomar College. I was very proud of myself about my achievement and believed that I will definitely get into the nursing program in CSUSM. I transferred to Cal State San Marcos in 2013; however, I was rejected by the nursing school. Therefore, I had to switch my major to kinesiology, which I knew nothing about. I was very depressed when I first started my
While an undergraduate at The Ohio State University I was very active in school clubs and recreational sports. I was the Vice President of the Portuguese Club and was a member of the Promotions team for the local radio station. I volunteered at a dog shelter and with foster boys living in a group home. I was also a trip leader in university and led a group of seven university students to Atlanta, GA to work with teenagers in a low-performing school. This involved handling the budget and activities for the group. I enjoy volunteering and doing extra activities to make university life more well-rounded.
Last semester in spring 2015, I took a Chaffey College class called “MATH-25”. The professor in this class made it difficult academically for students. Many students face academic challenges in school, but they can overcome these challenges if they are dedicated. Ways that they could overcome them is if they finish their homework early, read about what they are going to learn about before they do learn about it, and come to class every day. On the first day of class our 5’2 math professor went over a 6 page stapled syllabus and made lots of mistakes on it including typographical errors on some of the dates. It turned out our final exam was one week later than it stated in the syllabus. There were also mistakes on the homework. Around day 5
Fitness is something every college student struggles with. With the high levels demanded of college students, such as research papers, group projects, assignments, jobs, and overall lack of sleep it can become very difficult to find the time to workout or be active. Student like to be active thought because it helps put them in a better mood. They are able to relax and have more energy. If students come in with a plan though they are more likely to stick to their routine and maintain their workout plan. It also helps to have a person to workout with. This allows for both individuals to motivate each other to stay on their workout routine, this especially helps for women. Generally though, by setting your mind to staying fit, you will not only see the benefits physically, but it will also help individuals set goals that are achievable in life and help maintain their stress level (Whelan, 2016).
A recent difficult situation that I found myself in was in the beginning of my first semester at Beloit College. The transition from high school to college was intense and difficult for me. In order to adjust to the new environment I had to let go of my lifestyle outside of campus, therefore I had to set boundaries with my friends that currently attend high school. I wanted to feel comfortable in my new environment, learn more about the people and the campus itself. I felt as if stepping off of campus more often and only hanging out with the people that I already knew hindered me from growing. In order to not offend my friends I began to get more envolved on campus. Eventually my friends picked up the idea that I had other responsibilities
