Being a freshman I didn’t know what to really expect from college except from what I seen on tv. I’m a biology major currently taking five classes, Biology 131, Biology 160, Core 101, Math 138, and University 100.

For Biology 131 the main expectations for this class is to attend all classes and labs, and keep up with all the material being taught. In Biology 160 the expectations are to be prepared to learn, attend and participate, get help if needed, and…

    I admit, I’ve always been a bit of an introvert. In high school, if there was an opportunity to lead or stand out, I hurried in the opposite direction, I was too self-conscious to participate in any situation where I might fail or face abashment, and I particularly avoided events where I would have to interact with people. Therefore, if you were to tell me back then that I would describe myself as ambitious, intellectually curious, and socially responsible, I would look at you dumbfounded.…

    I decided to research and study: Do balance bands increase an athlete's performance? Athletics is a critical part of a child's development and many athletes resort to their sport skills to enter college and pay for it. Many people ask how can their sons or daughters become better at their favourite sport to be successful with it in their future.

    when the variable for ability and academic is controlled, it becomes prevalent that low income students are more likely to drop out of college than their well off counter parts. Such economic distress can lessen a student’s ability to finish college by requiring them to take on a part time job or reduce credit/unit load to help out at home.

    I have observed many children who have dropped out of college because they were not ready for the freedom of being on their own. I remember my next door neighbor only let her son attend a local community college. The other children attended colleges and universities far away from home, but he went to school nearby. The reason behind that is because his mom wanted to make sure her child was prepared for college mentally. She didn’t want her son to drop out because of parties, and not keeping up…
