Is university degree more valuable then those of community college degree — like will you a higher chance of getting accepted in a job with a university degree then a community college degree? Or is university has more available financial programs then C.C.? I mean, I just hear that most people want to go to universities and is way better then a C.C. How is it better or what’s so special about it? I’m asking this question because I need to enroll in one — but not sure which one? Please help.

  • Are college showers ever both sexes?

    So I was touring a dorm and all the floors were co-sex. Which I think is cool. But as we were being showed around we came across the showers in the middle of the dorm.

    So I was touring a dorm and all the floors were co-sex. Which I think is cool. But as we were being showed around we came across the showers in the middle of the dorm. This was the only shower/ bathroom I saw (small college) and there was no male or female sign outside. Inside there were no urinals. I was too embarrassed to ask if it was co-sex because that sounded so weird. But afterwards my mom was asking me about it becuase she got that impression too. So is that normal?

    Though from my understanding, a lot of schools require that you take some sort of public speaking course. If you do have to take one as part of your GE, one of the best pieces of advice I can give you is to get it over with ASAP. Sure you can wait, but do you really want to wait until the last semester to take a class you could have finished in your first couple of semesters of school?

    A couple months ago, I took an introduction to psychology course with a professor who I thought was cool and nice. Tables turned when she emailed me after I took my third midterm exam and she accused me of cheating. She said one of her teacher assistants saw me and the girl sitting next to me "talking" during the exam, but I did not even have any friends in the class so I do not understand how the teacher assistant could of thought I was talking to the girl sitting next to me. The professor made me feel uncomfortable for the last three weeks of the semester in the class and ever since then I have had really bad anxiety. I could not even enjoy my Thanksgiving break because of her. I know it has been about three months since it happened, but would it be pointless if I try to report her to the dean of my university? Luckily, I passed with a good grade in the course, but I just do not find it fair how she accused me of something I did not do and she also threatened she would tell the dean of the university if I was to sit next to the girl on the final exam, but I kept telling her I did not know who the girl even is?! Should I do something about this even though it has already happened? Thank you for your time.

    Best answer: Out of curiosity, have you ever been tested for ADHD? ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) has three types: Hyperactive Type, Inattentive Type, and Combined Type. Most of the stereotypes surrounding it have to do with children that have hyperactive type. They often blurt things out without thinking, jump out of their seats, can't sit still, are always fidgeting, etc. But not everyone who has ADHD acts like that, and the disorder can change as people grow up, so adults often have different symptoms from children.

    I have Inattentive Type ADHD, and I was diagnosed while I was in college. One of the most common symptoms is that ADHD can disrupt a person's executive functioning in several ways. There are eight executive functions that cover abilities like starting a task, organizational skills, and regulating emotions. Most people with ADHD struggle with at least a few of the executive functions, although someone might be excellent at others. You can read more about executive functioning here: http://www.ldonline.org/article/29122/

    Personally, I struggle a lot with boredom. For people who have ADHD, boredom can be almost painful, and a boring task (like reviewing notes from class) might be nearly impossible.

    I don't know if you have ADHD, but it sounds like it might be an option. Do some research into "adult ADHD symptoms" and see if you think it fits enough to get tested. It would explain why you can't seem to get yourself to do things even though you are motivated to.

    If you do have ADHD, there are several things you can do. First, I really recommend finding a professional therapist to talk things over with. They can help you develop strategies and coping mechanisms and decide what your next steps forward should be.

    Second, try taking classes that require less studying and more doing interesting things. Are you able to complete projects that are assigned? If you are building something with your hands? Can you write a paper? Can you give a presentation? Try to take classes that have more of those things and less dull studying for tests.

    Third, if you do have to study, don't do it alone. Find a friend in the class or invite someone to study with you. Talk about the material, make flashcards and then play study games with them, or have another friend quiz you both and turn it into a competition. Don't expect yourself to stick with it for hours at a time. Set doable goals like 20 or 30 minutes and then feel good about completing that.

    Fourth, If you do end up having ADHD, medication can be amazing. It evens out your brain chemistry to more standard levels and gives you motivation where you wouldn't otherwise have it. It's not perfect and not everyone benefits from it, but if you have ADHD, it's definitely worth a try.

    Best of luck!

I know she’s not going to respond well to it because she is very strict and has to have everything her way. Do I tell her I’m moving to Washington as soon as possible or wait until a little before I leave???

    Best answer: Yes, it definitely Is worth all agony and frustration to EARN a master's, i speak from personal experience. i dropped out of graduate school for 7 YEARS, but i went back to college and then back to graduate school, I EARNED that master of science degree, it WAS worth it.

    Yes, I DID want to try to get Ph.D., but my motivation has evaporated. i would have to move because The university i am close to does not offer the type of Ph.D. program i am interested in..

    ANYONE who thinks they can get ph.D. without getting a master's degree is an idiot in in my honest opinion.

    Yes, EARNING a master's degree IS worth it, especially if your employer provides substantial tuition support.

    before my boyfriend and i found each other, we both applied to colleges. now months later, we are dating and we both got into the same college. i got into two other schools and am waiting on their letters. financially and logistically speaking, it wouldn t make sense for me to go to the two schools i m waiting on because of money and everything when i can get instate tuition. both of us are sure of going to that school, for two different things (him for chemical engineering, me for environmental policy and law) and even if we do break up at some point before college starts or in the middle of it, is it logical to go to the same school if there are other factors or should i go to one of the schools across the country? I don t want to sound selfish because I love one of the schools, but it wouldn t make sense monetary wise. What do you all think I should do?

I finish and get bachelor degree in 4 years. That means those 4 years come on 14,134 per year. 7,067 per semester. Is that correct or i have it all wrong?

    I am currently 16 years old. I am a Junior in high school. I am not good at anything and have no talent at anything. My grades are all Fs and worrying about my Future stresses me out. I'm worried that I'm gonna end up like my mom and dad. They were both alcholics and drug users but not anymore. They stopped doing dumb stuff and they want me to go to college and be successful person. What I'm thinking is that I don't have the potential to be what they want me to be. My grades have been bad ever since like elementary school. I struggled to keep my grades a passing grade ever since then. I always put me fullest into my work but end up with a C other than an A. So it feels as if there's no point in trying anymore. I have been thinking about learning a trade in carpentry or something like that. It's just my grades that is keeping me from reaching that goal. My sister is a year older than me and she is the opposite of me. She has all good grades and gpa and she's getting ready for college. Maybe having a successful life isn't meant for me. So I'm thinking that I just drop out and work at a minimum wage job and work my way from there. I don't see myself graduating or going to college.
