Different Identities Arthur Chickering’s theory of student development describes 7 vectors that influence the growth of college students. Over the period of time a student spends in college, can help make that student become who they become. Managing emotions, establishing identity, and developing purpose are three of the seven identities Chickering describes. Identity is what helps make a person who they are or become, sometimes it can either be for the good or for the bad. Learning how to manage your emotions can take a turn for the worse or for the better. Quite a few times it does take a turn for the worse with most students. It has been said that when a student moves away from home and onto college it is a big adjustment, they are on their own, responsibility grows, and they become more independent. All of those come with emotions, such as anger, anxiety, depression, guilt, fear, etc. These emotions can derail a student’s education to the point where they become on academic probation, lose their scholarships, and maybe even have to quit school. Students have to learn how to manage their emotions; there are many ways to do that. Students can go to their academic advisor, their roommate, a friend, or even a doctor. Emotions play a big role in college; it can either make or break a student. College students have a tendency to establish who they are or who they want to become during their college years. Their identity can go as far as their appearance, social life, adults they look up too, how they respond to others opinion, self-esteem, and their personality. Establishing identity in college can also be a hit or miss. Establishing identity plays a huge role in a college student’s life. Some students believe that partying is a way to establish a part of their appearance to others. Then there are those students that believe making good grades, and getting their career goal set is what will make their identity. Establishing identity can be hard for a person, especially if they feel the need to impress everyone
Identity theft is on the rise in the United States and Globally. The Federal Trade Commission advised that there are about nine million cases of identity theft. People who had their identity stolen often feel like they were violated. Any individual can have their identity compromised in numerous ways. Different institutions store personal information.

that minorities have the ability to be successful, which essentially encourages a more inclusive environment. Therefore, students should search for self-identity, overcome the racial discriminatory, and learn the ability to succeed in the classroom.
In order for minority children to succeed in the classroom, they must first search for their identity by accepting themselves, leading to other ethnic groups welcoming them. Learning with other ethnicities creates a better working environment. One way…
College Education and Success
English C & L 1

My Identity Constituting Narrative
Saving my Pug Bruce from the tire shop five years ago began what I would call my identity today. Since that day I would say that my identity has changed; because of Bruce, I now volunteer at my local shelter and it has made me a better person and motivates me to reach my future goal of finishing my Bachelor’s degree. Also, this past event has shaped my current values and relationship with my boyfriend Travis. Having Bruce I think reinforced our relationship at…
What influences college students and hooking-up?
Ed. 0819 Tweens and Teens
Hooking-up can mean just kissing someone with tongue but it can also mean giving or receiving
oral sex or having sexual intercourse without being in a relationship with the other person. People who
hook-up with their friends call it friends with benefits. This broad definition of hooking-up leaves people
to come to their own conclusion…
Thesis Statement: A young boy’s environment can cause internal conflict.
One possible research question that is applicable to my topic is, how can a young boy’s environment affect his identity? I arrived at this question after reading “Thank you Ma’am”, and discovering that the young protagonist is missing essential components necessary to further develop his ability to make sound decisions. This question is relevant because it impacts everyone. Rather it is his mother, his father…
exactly what she wanted. She had done all the necessary research on her own to get into UMN, she finished writing all her college essays, she asked for recommendation letters, and she had redone her entire application package. Sending in her application package and getting accepted to the University, you can say was all luck considering she created an entirely new name and identity for herself. I strongly agree with Gradwells definition on success. When you look at how far Julia accomplished her goals…
