“Some of the revenue from the show does go into our educational fund,” explained Moroney, adding that, “we have donors that will contribute specifically to our scholarship program. And then the way that our auction programs are setup, for each of the auctions, each of the lots have a cap amount, and then the proceeds above that cap amount then go towards the educational fund.”
While the Socs are in no way morally superior to the Greasers, they are given a higher opportunity to succeed solely based on their high-ranking social class.
“We show up and Mr. Rudebusch would divide us up and tell you where to go, and what tasks needed to be finished,” Freshman Jack Dent said. “The task that took me the longest for the homecoming dance was to
Within a few decades, the practice of designating a valedictorian had become an established tradition,” (Talbot 229). Talbot uses these fun facts to show how the position of valedictorian has changed over the years going from just one to top 25 due to the fighting and competition.This adds logos to the argument because these statements can be proven. Because nowadays more kids are doing better in school, it should be hard just to pick one valedictorian due to the fact that they are willing to fight to be a one. Talbot again wants to show that the title of valedictorian is just another way “to show off to the local taxpayers” (Talbot 229). Talbot uses the term “taxpayer” to connote that the title of valedictorian isn’t as big and important as some people may take it to be. It really is only important to the family of the valedictorian no one else really cares. She uses an appeal to tradition in this case to show how the older the tradition the more it needs revision through time. At the end of the day, whether families like it or not, schools have the right to decide how many valedictorians they
They’ll have enough money to pay for their books, utensils, notebooks, and meal plan. As a college student, it’s already hard enough to find a local since we spend so much time with homework and studying for exams. Those that are working are complaining because it’s almost like waste of time; most of them are saying that sometime they have to work at least 40 hours a week, while attending school, just to live in an apartment or dorm. Now, as a freshman in college I have witnessed and lived a life of a college student and it’s not what it seems like; before attending college I had a misconception about college lifestyle. I thought it’ll be a life of rollercoaster, where there new things to explore in every turn, but no that wasn’t the case, matter of fact, it was the totally opposite. As a freshmen I had to find a job and though I can save some money while attending school at the same time. The money I had before school I used that to purchase few books which total out to be $500-$700. At that point, I was disappointed because I knew I had to work more hours in order to balance myself. I started working 20 hours a week as a full time student; taking 12-13 credits. After a month of paying for books and school materials, I needed to find extra money for personal spending so I worked full time instead and school was kicking my ass, but I had no choice to work as hard as I could
As a junior, it is important to be informed of where to find scholarships, and what to do with them since it is beneficial for the future. Personally, being informed of scholarships is beneficial to me because there are scholarships that juniors can apply for and it also allows me to know where to find them for my senior year. However, as advantageous as it may be to a junior such as myself, it is more beneficial to seniors. Scholarships are important to seniors, and having knowledge of how they can receive free money to pay for the tuition is important to most students since not everyone’s parents pay for their tuition. Along with scholarships, college visits benefit seniors and juniors by informing them of the specific programs those college offer, the type of school such as: a four year, a two year, technical or community college, and cost. College visits also inform students of scholarships and ways to make their schooling more cost effective and without homeroom, seniors or juniors would not know where to find this information with discussing it with someone in an authoritative position within the school such as the guidance counselor, principal, vice principal, or teachers and
There were many questions, but the most frequently asked was, ‘What is the money for’? We asked local National Honor Society leader Wade VanVark this question. In hopes that things would slowly become clearer as more explanations come.
One of the biggest challenges college students face today is debt associated by student loans. Nearly every college student will graduate with debt unless supported by academic or athletic scholarships, grants or financial aid. This issue can be addressed by encouraging students to pursue scholarships, and applying for financial
Since not enough money is being put aside for college, people will apply for a scholarship or a loan
The Office for Equity and Diversity (OED) is eager to launch our first-ever Student Emergency Fund. OED primarily serves minority, first generation, and low-income students. Some of these students face many obstacles while pursuing higher education. These obstacles include lack of resources, obligations to family, unstable living conditions, loss of scholarship, unaffordable tuition, etc. Facing these types of adversities leaves our students vulnerable to unexpected emergencies endangering their college career. This Student Emergency Fund serves to support our students in their time of need and allows them time to recover from their financial
Attending college opens many doors and provides many opportunities, however, it comes at a cost—a cost that poses the biggest challenge facing students today. The expense of tuition, room and board, and the cost of required textbooks and supplies are exorbitantly high for many individuals. Working while going to school is an option to minimize debt, however, earning potential can be limited due to class schedules and the time required for studying. Fortunately, a plethora of scholarship opportunities in which students can take advantage are available to alleviate some of the costs associated with attending college. Additionally, steps such as offering a variety of meal plans and housing options as well as encouraging students to utilize
Nowadays, students are faced by a monster. It keeps growing and growing and there is no way to stop it. One a person is in, they are burdened for life. Student loans is of the social norms that has got to go. 60% of all college graduates used student loans to “pay”
College is a place where students are encouraged to grow, spread their wings, and fly. However, with the increasing weight of student debt after graduation, it’s hard to focus on learning. Paying off college is so stressful that it affects High School Juniors. Many of them are being discouraged from applying because of the cost. College is meant to prepare the future generations to be bold, intelligent, and confident. How are they supposed to do that when some of the population aren’t even attending? A way we can deal with student debt is by giving them “sponsors.” These sponsors would be richer, better off people that are willing to pay for the student’s college education. Either the sponsor has made a donation to the college the student
“It gives us another chance to bring up our grades.” says freshman Kristina Marin adds.
Whether it was a wonderful experience or a terrible one, if you went to your high school senior prom, I am sure that it was a night to remember. For so many teenagers the prom is the highlight of high school. It is the one thing so many students look forward to. Many see it as a rite of passage into adulthood. For Amy L. Best, the author of "Prom Night: Youth, Schools, and Popular Culture", the prom is a perfect opportunity to explore teen identity and individuality. It is also a place to look at how this event speaks so much about today's kids.
