Own your pleasure. You're not a slut for wanting to come. You're not greedy for wanting to come as much as possible. You're a human. Human's seek pleasure. Soak it in, as much as you can get.
It hasn't surprised me that the nostalgia of the Gen-Y childhood is making a comeback. I could sit here and write an endless list of all the reasons the '90s were the best decade to be a child in, from Tamagotchis to Rugrats to 'N Sync (the reasons are endless). But I think there are deeper reasons as to why our Gen-Y childhood culture is making a comeback.
More than once, I seriously considered the idea of forgoing the trip and forgetting my impulsive purchase all together. In my moments of doubt I asked myself: would I ever really forgive myself for turning down a trip to Italy? The answer was no.
Does life really suck? I hope not because, when I look at your life I see a million opportunities for you to lead this amazing and most likely history changing life, don't let the bad days get you down my friend.
Sometimes, we go to college because we're high school seniors with good grades and no criminal record, and that's what we do. We go because what else would we do? Turns out, we can do a lot. Unfortunately, we forget about it because there's nowhere to squeeze it in on the Common App.
The Missouri Method continues to produce skilled and prepared graduates in a wide variety of career areas. While every teaching method has its critics, the Show-Me state is showing everyone why its journalism students are some of the best in the world.
As a country, we simply cannot let our less well-endowed colleges -- which most students attend -- become exemplars of access but failures at outcomes. The best education is a life-long pathway to many opportunities in which historically the most broadly educated graduates do well.
Wheaton College has made a profound choice -- belief over people. While claiming a position that values life, the College has made choices that value the potential life of a possible fertilized egg over the actual lives of students who may well require insurance coverage in the present to avoid or treat life-threatening and health-compromising conditions.
As a professional application-essay coach, I regularly encounter students with well-intentioned but misguided strategies for their college-application essays. And how students approach this task often determines acceptance or rejection.
The time has come for Joe Biden to run for president. Biden can give Hillary a run for her money, beat up any Republican challenger in a debate, and come out victorious. Joe Biden could just be our next president. I hope he decides to find out.
As a suburban-born 20-year-old college student, living in the heart of the West Village of New York City for a whole summer is probably the best thing that ever happened to me.
Massachusetts attorney general Maura Healey today announced settlements of her investigations of two large for-profit college chains for unfair and deceptive student recruiting practices. Kaplan will pay $1.375 million to former students, and Lincoln Tech will pay out about $1 million.
The summers I knew were gone. Instead of flip flops, I wore sensible pumps. Instead of immersing my toes in the cool waters of the Atlantic Ocean, I dipped my feet into adulthood.
It seems as though some troublemakers never grow up. Long before Donald Trump became the political joke and juggernaut of the 2016 presidential elections, he was once a young prankster with a reputation for being a class clown.
It is of little comfort for me to confirm you are a good example of a larger problem faced my scores and scores of students in America.
As my twenty-second birthday is quickly approaching (cue the Tay Swift remarks) I'm reflecting on the past whirlwind of a year. For most, finally being legal seems to be the center of the year, but that's rarely the case.
