Write for the Future

The Summer Wind of Change

Write for the Future | August 1, 2015 | College
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.

Small Girl, Big Apple

Susan Kaufman | July 31, 2015 | New York
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.

Life Doesn't Suck, We Are Just Confused

Taylor Johnson | July 31, 2015 | College
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.

When Belief Becomes More Important Than People

Susan M. Shaw | July 31, 2015 | Religion
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.

Here's What Happens When Women Demand Orgasms

Jenny Block | July 31, 2015 | Women
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.

Meeting First Amendment Standards: In 2015, More Universities Are Making the Grade

Azhar Majeed | July 30, 2015 | College
Yet year after year, my organization, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), finds that the vast majority of colleges and universities -- both public and private -- maintain speech codes that severely restrict or overly regulate the expression of students and professors.

Not So FAFSA: How to Avoid a Student Aid Scam

Adam Levin | July 30, 2015 | College
First things first: In the form's acronym lies the secret to avoiding the money pitfalls--FAFSA is short for "FREE Application for Federal Student Aid." Yeah, I know, filling it out is time-consuming, but it's doable. It's also complex and requires information that you're going to have to bird-dog, but it is free.

The Freshmen 21

Brian Harke Ed.D. | July 29, 2015 | College
Meals are up to you, as is your bedtime. Too often college students skip meals or don't eat healthy. Avoid the "freshman 15" by minimizing the 12 a.m. pizza runs.

You've worked to train your children in money management, but college brings a whole new level of financial decision-making and challenges. So before they are off on their own, review these topics to make sure they're ready.

Donald Trump: Not the Candidate We Need, But the One We Deserve

Anthony Berteaux | July 30, 2015 | College
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.

The Recipe for a Media Innovator

Diane Gayeski, Ph.D. | July 29, 2015 | College
Take one great team player, blend in the conceptual tools to see both the big picture and the relationship of the key elements of a business, add a dash of persuasive communications and negotiation skills, and allow to rise in a warm environment of research, rewards and risk-taking.

Why I Didn't Report Being Raped in College

Katie Rose Guest Pryal | July 29, 2015 | College
I never reported my rape to the police -- even though, even now, I could. North Carolina, the state where I live, where he raped me, has no statute of limitations for felonies. No statute of limitations. What he did will always be a crime. In my eyes, and in the eyes of the law. Right? Sort of. That's the problem.

Timothy Weiderhoft | July 29, 2015 | College
For me - a business leader, father, and husband - being able to set my own schedule and learn at my own pace was critical. My program allowed me to keep my job and continue performing at a high level.

A Vocational Selfie: The Discernment Deck

Wayne Meisel | July 29, 2015 | College
Vocational discernment is about doing your homework and figuring out what is out there and what is not. It's about listening to your heart instead of the voices of others when deciding what to do. It's about deciding to explore and try and not worry about saving face or what others might think.

21 Things I Learned (Or Tried To) While Being 21 Years Young

Kaitlyn Russell | July 30, 2015 | College
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.

Why A College is Using PR Terminology for Student Success

Scott Willyerd | July 29, 2015 | College
There's a new term that's being bandied about college and university career services offices. The term is often used in project management and is familiar to industries like marketing and public relations. The term, 'deliverables', which means a tangible or intangible object to be delivered to a client based an...

There Is No Such Thing As a 'Real Man'

Jeffrey Platts | July 28, 2015 | Healthy Living
The only thing I care about is: Are you embracing and expressing the unique flavor of your own masculinity? That's the real question.

The Beginning of the End of Traditional Higher Education

Jeb Harrison | July 28, 2015 | College
Why do so many continue to risk lifelong indebtedness for a diploma? Has a traditional college education become an anachronism in the digital age?
