The Switch to the Semester System - Over the years, there has been debate about technical colleges converting from quarter systems to semester systems. Some people feel a semester system will be better than the quarter system. Apparently, the Technical College System of Georgia agrees and converts the technical colleges to the semester system. Now students who are on the quarter system have to transition to the semester system. Students will have to cope with the new academic calendar, courses, credit hours, tuition, and financial aid....   [tags: Education]

Coming of Age in Literature this Semester - Throughout this semester there has been a common ingredient to almost all of the pieces which we as a class have read, which is the coming of age. Much like the May L. Becker quote in the title says as we get old we begin to find ourselves, such was true for the protagonist throughout our readings this semester. The idea of coming of age or maturing as an individual has been presented in a number of ways. Some of which include O’Hara’s philosophy for the mother to let them go find their own way, and Winterson shows the forming of your own ideas about the world....   [tags: maturing, world, mother, truth, story] 586 words

What Is a Well Spent Semester? - ... Furthermore, freedom of thought affects the lives of people, society and the government. It changes them, makes them more enlightened and acknowledges the holiness of human dignity. Kant concludes that Enlightenment is the ability to use one’s own reasons without the guidance of outside forces. Enlightenment, according to Kant, marked the transition from a collectivist culture to an individual driven culture, which took place due to the fact that the Enlightenment formed a new culture based on reasonable judgment ability or rather, ability to use reason alone without guidance....   [tags: philosphical perspective, 'Enlightment' approach] 1052 words

First Semester in Bryant College - ... Coming here and adjusting into the system, was very different for me, and a task on its own. Being an international student, there are pre-determined differences that are instilled into society. Most people from local areas assume that you speak ‘Indian’ because I’m from India, or use Fahrenheit to describe the temperature outside, instead of Celsius. Adjusting to the culture of the United States is a big adjustment, but as I saw this semester blow by, I realized that people often forget to realize that they have learned so much....   [tags: judgement, morals, values, decisions] 623 words

No one know what the outcome will be, but if we all have the vision and innovation that Balanchine had there is not a doubt in my mind that we too, all the freshman on campus, will be able to achieve success.

Semester Reflection on Writing - Semester Reflection In the first essay that I have written this semester, I learned quite a few largely-important points about writing. Before this class, I knew very little about any writing method. The first essay taught me the incredible importance of a thesis. Without a thesis, a paper cannot accomplish anything; it becomes nothing more than rambling nonsense. Another important thing that the first essay taught me was comma placement. I have always struggled with comma placement. This essay helped me to understand it a lot more than I previously did....   [tags: method, thesis, comma, essay, placement] 610 words

Three Favorite Texts from This Semester - ... One reason is because it’s a play. I like to read plays because you get everyone’s opinions and how they view different scenarios. Another reason I liked it is because it is so popular. Everyone knows the title Romeo and Juliet so it was nice actually getting to learn about what the fuss is about. It has been around for so many years, and it is still famous. The way Shakespeare is always dragging things on to make you believe that things could still turn out for the better amazes me.

Plus, I still get excited about writing an unpaid column for my small college newspaper. Success, clearly, is relative.

It is interesting to me how much the juvenile justice system has changed both for the better and for the worse. From the time of the child savers to the get tough movement, which we are still experiencing, the entire system has shifted almost entirely.

The test is completely changing and new topics have been added into the standard test to get into med school – sociology is now about thirty questions of that test, so a basic knowledge of the course is necessary. I took this class for other reasons as well, one being that the course is only eight weeks instead of a whole semester. I anticipated needing more time to study and spend on my other classes later in the semester so having one less class to worry about makes it that much less stressful come finals week in May....   [tags: tests, med school, studies]

The Relationship Between English Achievement and Proficiency Tests - 1. Introduction It is clear nowadays that language learning means learning how to use the language and not learning to know about the language. Using the language depends on our competences (knowledge, skills and characteristics) that allow us to engage in communicative activities. The Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) begins its treatment of language use through the context of communication, which it divides into four domains: personal, public, occupational and educational. It identifies four modes of communication: production (speaking and writing), reception (listening and reading), interaction (spoken and written), and mediation (translating and interpreting)....   [tags: English language programs]
