Community college is a great institution for students to start their educational journey. Especially when they do not have the funds or lack some of the prerequisite that a university would require. Community college was created to serve the community, traditional and non-traditional students with the best higher education and lifetime learning opportunities. The faculty and staff members at a community college is there to provide leadership in education while going above and beyond to recognize the needs of the students and the community by providing excellent educational programs and support services that are available to all who have the opportunity to take advantage of them. “Student services now include recruitment and retention, counseling, student activities, student health, financial aid, academic support, career centers, transfer centers, and supplemental services such as transportation, child care, and services tailored for specific populations of students” (Cohen, Brawer, & Krisker, 2014, pg. 209). My philosophy in fulfilling the role and mission of the community college, is to establish the mission, vision, goals and values to guide all students on their journey to strive to become successful both in school and in today’s economy.
As a first generation student, I knew nothing about navigating college, let alone leaving home for a period longer than three days. The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) gave me the opportunity to build connections with others, guide me through campus, unlimited access to well rounded students/advisors,etc. With that being said, I knew at a young age I wanted to help people with a similar socioeconomic background. It was when I was suspended from school at the age of eleven for skipping second roll call in my physical education class. In that moment, I felt cheated, punished harshly for a mediocre action compared to the kids dealing drugs on the same field. EOP offers students such as myself academic guidance, financial assistance, personal
The biggest reason convincing me to enroll at ECA is the quality of the education offered to students who decide to go through the program. Education is very important to me, and I am ready for a little bit of a challenge. I am very excited to try college classes, and there is no doubt in my mind that they will be a big challenge. However, I trust the ECA to get me ready, and I am glad to know there will be a counselor figure with me every step. For me, the high-quality education is the best part of the program.
I became a part of the EOF because I like to study and work hard in the summer. This program is helpful because college is different than high school and in college I have to work harder and do all my best to pass the summer program with a good grade. This program will help us to do well in the fall semester and they support us with many things such as tutoring, academic skills workshops. The reason that I applied for the EOF is to get to know the college that I will go to and at the end of the program if I passed I will get college credits and that’s one of the things that I am looking forward to. The EOF is designed strengthen my preparation for college level and academic success.
Students nowadays face many challenges when it comes to obtaining a college education. We evaluate an institution’s quality based on what we need the most. The qualities sought out may vary by each person’s personal point of view. However, as a student, I’ve found that most students seek for an institute that benefits them the most. Attending a community college has been an enormous advantage towards my education. I have been attending San Bernardino Valley College for the last two semesters. I have come to respect their philosophies and values. The institution has now been in business for 87 years. They venture to encourage both students and faculty towards high standards of achievement and progress into exceptional members of the society. They now offer a variety of degrees, transfer programs and certificates for a wide range of students. San Bernardino Valley College has an accomplished staff, student support services and technological tools that pave the road towards the conquest of a quality education.
Cypress College has an array of services for students to take advantage and make use of to purse their academic goals. For many students, like myself, the goal is to transfer to a CSU or UC. Fortunate enough, students at Cypress College have the benefit of accessing the transfer center to ensure one is taking the correct course and have a smooth transition from Cypress College to the university of choice, as stated on www.cypresscollege.edu/services/transfer. The transfer center offers individual counseling, general education coursework check-sheets, and online transfer planning resources and link to ensure student success and extending their education to university level.
Among the programs of Cypress College, the Student Center immediately distinguishes itself from all the others, students with questions instantly decide to come here. As this is one of the Center’s important functions, while inside there are all the different program coincidently working together inside to create the structure known as the Student Center, here, students come for being registering for school to requesting transcript, meet with counselors, and find helpful advice in finding a career within their major.
Regardless of the type of institution, retention is one of the biggest issues that colleges encounter with the Hispanic/Latino population. The question has been posed for quite some time: What can colleges do to, not only keep these students on campus, but also to prepare them for the challenges they may face when transferring to a four-year school? Various programs on college campuses across the state of California have been implemented in the past couple of decades to help address this question. The existence of such programs, like Educational Opportunity Program (EOP), contribute to the academic success of the
I am honored to be a nominee for the Governor's Honors Program (GHP). In being a part of GHP next summer, I have high hopes of learning more about my instrument and the places it can lead me. I have already decided that I plan on using my instrument and also my musical ability as part my career later on in life. My goal is to become a professional musician and a music therapist. I believe that this program can make that goal possible, as well as push me closer to reaching my full potential in many different aspects of life as well.
Being a Bunker Hill Community College student is not that easy unless you are associated with all the useful and valuable sources provided all over the school. As I seamlessly move from my high school experiences into a two-year college at Bunker Hill, I was so anxious to explore new things in the new college world. After I come to this college, I found that this college has many friendly and helpful resources that help me engaging myself in the new world. For example, I found that the admissions office staff members are very helpful in providing student information. Besides that, the school mentors are also helpful for bringing new students on a tour around Bunker Hill Community College. Furthermore, Life map Centre staff members are also very friendly in helping students organize their study plan and to register for class. The most interesting part is I found a reliable resource called A.C.E Mentor that tremendously could help the students to succeed in their classes.
The Resident Officer Program of Elgin (ROPE). was a program that started in 1991 in Elgin, Illinois. There were several neighborhoods in the city that were gang and drug infested. The police department tried a new program, of having officers live in these communities. The officers lived in donated or subsidized homes or apartments.This gave residents a feeling of being connected with the officers, and a feeling of safety, which would probably be unusual in these areas. The officers would work their normal shifts, but actually they were on call twenty four hours a day, to help the residents. Just the presents of police officers living and working in a neighbor hood, may no longer be a prime area for gangs and drug dealers. The citizens begin
The Luckyday Citizenship program is an amazing opportunity to receive financial aid for college, and an opportunity to bring in students who show a passion for community involvement. I am interested in the program because it will bring me together with like-minded people who share the same interests and goals as me. It appeals to me because I want to meet people who want to get involved and do fun and helpful things for the community. I want to meet genuinely nice people with a passion for helping others. I want to meet people with skills and abilities that they use to do positive things. What I want to bring to Southern Miss and the Hattiesburg community is my passion for playing music and my desire to be involved.

It is well known that, humans learn and adapt easily at a young age, so it is better to start learning while young. According to that, the Career and College Promises is a good program. It is a program that gives an opportunity to all students from 10th to 12th grade to get to know how college life is before they even get their high school diplomas. Classes are free of charge in this program, but parents are responsible for their children’s transportation. For those unaware, this program may seem difficult, but it is not. The requirements are not as hard as eating while the stomach is already full. All it takes is courage. Before going any further, students must
Over the last 77 years, Morgan Stanley has been at the forefront of the financial industry. This is from the firm focusing on creating customizable investment products that are sold to retail and institutional clients. ("Company History," 2012) However, a problem is that many competitors are entering a period of flat growth that is at the top of S Curve. This is when a company will grow so big that it becomes difficult to continue increasing profit margins. (Nunes, 2011, pp. 1 5) In the case of Morgan Stanley, the recent financial crisis has made it more difficult for the firm to improve earnings. As a result, a new strategy must be developed that will motivate the sales force to do more. To determine the most effective approach requires examining six features of a total rewards program, the specific behaviors that will be targeted, assessing the value proposition and how to attract registered representatives.
