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…

College sports: Is it time to change the game?
College sports are a big part of today’s society. Lots of teens choose the college they want to go to because of the sports offered at the college or the teams. College football should be abolished because of the useless costs, risk factor and it has no academic purpose to the students. Lots of critics want it gone.
Students do not realize but a big portion of their tuition they are paying for school is not for the education part but it is…
Pertaining college admissions, race and connection are major deciding factors for who is going to be accepted, which is unfair because it minimizes the equality of people getting accepted based on weather or not they are academically qualified for that college. According to Word Net, fairness is defined as conformity with rules or standards. People view the level of fairness differently. In some people’s opinion, the college admissions process is fair, as others find it very bias.…
Does College Put Kids on a ‘Party Pathway’?
By Annie Murphy Paul│Jan. 23, 2013
A fair amount of schadenfreude greeted the release last week of a study showing that the kids of parents who pay for college return their families’ largesse by achieving lower grades. The study, conducted by University of California at Merced professor Laura Hamilton and published in the American Sociological Review, offered those of us who worked our way through college — or took out burdensome student loans — a rare…
According to “Let’s start paying college athletes” by Joe Nocera of The New York Times, the 15 highest-paid NCAA football coaches made $53.4 million; meanwhile, the 13,877 Division I players made $0.
I realize that for those coaches, this is their career, and they are not serving double duty as students. But for those players, every practice, scrimmage and game requires an immense amount of time and a significant amount of risk.
I’m not calling for giving college athletes the ability to sign endorsement…
Having a job while in college is a financial necessity for some students and a means to gain financial independence for others. Regardless of the circumstances, the balance can be tenuous as students weigh the responsibilities of both. In addition to the money, college jobs have the added benefit of letting students build a work history. This demonstrates to potential employees that you have an ability to juggle responsibilities and provides experience working with diverse individuals.
should attend college has become a controversial issue lately. Although it’s very common students should go to college after graduating from high school, there is a very different voice claiming attending college actually burdens students’ future. It not only creates a large amount of tuition debt, but also disappointed students when they get into the uncertain job market. According to ………(“”). However, I truly believe it is very necessary to attend college in nowadays because college helps students…
