Ssk12 Introduction to University Learning – Essay 1

...Obtaining a University Degree is Extremely Important In my essay, I argue that in my world view obtaining a university degree is extremely important. I will define the term “World View” according to Hobson, Samovar and Porter. I will also discuss the factors that have influenced my world view of education and learning such as a vast experience of financial services experience in the UK and Australia, and more recent journey into the social business media space. I will also touch on what is important to me in my worldview and why these factors have ignited my ambition in acquiring a university degree. Samovar and Porterribing, describe as Worldview as being an “overarching philosophy or conception of the world” (2004, 1) and Hobson supports this by defining it as “a set of beliefs that we hold through which we organise our understanding of ourselves and our understanding of others” (1996, 2). Both agree that it influences a person's perceptions, beliefs, and values. We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.  Gautama Siddharta A worldview is the paradigm of how people translate their meaning of their world; in other words, what we make of the world is our worldview. It is something taken for granted without having proof. A worldview is like a pair of reading glasses in that if you get the right prescription, your vision will be clear. However if the prescription is wrong; it could make your eyes......

Argument Essay: Smoking Ban on University Campuses

...Robert Hunter Hardin 7/13/13 WRIT 101: Argument Essay The University Of Mississippi Smoking Ban In the fall of 2007, the University of Mississippi adopted the “Tobacco Use Policy”. This policy was designed to limit the use of tobacco products on the Ole Miss campus to “designated tobacco-use areas.” It became evident over time that the policy was not effective and added to the growing concerns on campus over continuing exposure to second hand smoke. This led to discussions between students and faculty and staff alike about becoming a smoke free campus. In the early fall of 2011, the Vice Chancellor’s Office for Student Affairs began to solicit feedback from various constituencies on campus to determine whether or not there was broad support for such an effort. During the following fall semester, a proposal for a smoke-free campus received support from the Provost’s Office, the Academic Deans, all 14 departments within the Division of Student Affairs, The Executive Director of the Alumni Association, the ASB Senate, and the ASB President. In the spring of 2012, the proposal received support from the Faculty Senate and the Staff Council. During the spring semester, the ASB Senate passed a formal resolution supporting the implementation of a Smoke-Free Policy on the Ole Miss campus. With such campus wide support evident, Chancellor Dan Jones asked Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Larry Ridgeway to call together a “Smoke-Free Campus Policy Implementation Committee”. The......

Application Essay to University

...There’s a girl who’s not your ordinary girl, by any means - she’s been through a lot more than you could imagine. This girl not only has faced miles of hopelessness, years of pain, and an ocean of sorrow, but also has been drowning in her own tears looking for an escape. This girl has taken on challenges with fear and fury. This girl is 17 years old, and every one of those years held a new obstacle to overcome. With her eyes full of betrayel and a heck of a fake grin, she doesn’t complain. From four elementary schools to a middle school and three high schools, she’s been through it all. She has been a “mother” to her brother, an angel to God, and a lost soul all at once. She is ambitious, outgoing, and will help anyone who needs it. She strives for the best and even what she can’t have. She wants a chance, a chance to make a difference. She has a story, one that should be heard. This girl is me. What do I have to lose? Here I am, with a mind full of thoughts, a stomach full of knots, and a pounding migraine, but that’s not going to stop me. I am Jaimee, Jaimee Koryn. Where to begin? I could write about how hard my life has been, how depressing, lifeless and overwhelming the world seems, or how many schools I’ve been to, or how many houses I’ve lived in and with how many people. Or maybe I could just tell you about how I have been betrayed by two fathers, and then my beloved mother, who overdosed and tried to commit suicide? Or, even better, I could tell you how my......

Universities universities in developing provinces of Turkey. This is a response to pressure coming from local MPs who in turn voice the demands of their constituencies. However, while the already existing 85 universities are wrestling with financial and academic difficulties, it does not seem to be a good idea to add new universities to the system of higher education. First of all, the new universities will experience staffing problems. That is, they will have difficulty finding faculty that is qualified to teach in these budding universities. In our country the number of academicians who meet the academic requirements is limited. New universities will have two choices: either to draw from the existing pool or to employ under qualified people. To attract those instructors from other universities they will have to offer attractive incentives . However, since these will be state universities they will not have the necessary funds and most academics will be unwilling to go to small town universities where academic and life standards are below par. The only venue open to these universities will be to employ local professionals or under qualified instructors. The inevitable result will follow: a drop in the quality of education. In addition to recruitment problems, small town universities will have financial difficulties. The funds allocated to them by the state will not be enough to build from scratch all the facilities that make a university a "real university". A university is......

Brown University Application Essay

...Why is the sky blue? Where do babies come from? How do planes stay in the air? Like every kid, I’ve always been curious about the world I live in. I think this curiosity is what fuels my interest in science and medicine. This passion has made me want to discover more about the world, whether that be through education or adventuring out into it. My interest in medical science began when I was told that my sister had a heart condition called tachycardia, which meant that her heart beat too many times per minute. Because of this, a large part of my early childhood was spent in hospitals. While in the hospital I recall asking how the different heart rate equipment like the heart monitor and EKG’s worked. With the help of heart-rate control drugs her heart began to beat normally. Today my sister is off of the medication and is as healthy as any teenager. Witnessing the doctors make my sister healthy again made me want to pursue a career in medicine. My overall goal is to become a successful general pediatrician. To achieve this goal I’m going to have to take the MCAT, go to medical school and my complete my residency. Because I don’t know anyone personally in the medical field, I believe attending the college preparation program will greatly help me achieve my future academic goals. Not only will this program give me a better insight to medicine, but it will also prepare me to become a medical professional. This program will give me the opportunity to examine medicine and find......

..."I am a student at the University of Kansas studying English and American Studies, and this may be a bit unorthodox, but I wanted to say that your book Writing Essays About Literature was one of the best books I have ever read in the world of academia! I am taking a Critical Theory class, and we were assigned only the first 55 pages, but I really could not put the book down. Your writing is magnificent, and I am constantly referring to the book when writing papers. You have done a brilliant job making essay-writing easy, structured, and actually enjoyable!" - Lauren Gaylor, University of Kansas "Katherine O. Acheson's Writing Essays About Literature is a concise, fully portable and very well-priced guide that gets it right. Acheson's emphasis on inductive reasoning is wonderfully refreshing. It really helps English professors persuade their students to argue from the specific to the general, to found their arguments on the details of evidence and on the careful—and affectively sensitive—analysis of that evidence. And the very best thing about this book is that Acheson's casual and unassuming prose style makes students want to read it. And they do. And then they bring it to class!" - Glenn Clark, University of Manitoba "For those of us interested in teaching writing through literature, Katherine O. Acheson's guide is an indispensable companion, teaching students that writing is more about process and less about imagined giftedness. The book begins by teaching students how...

Kean University Essay

...things we take for granted, like electricity and clean water were precious commodities to the survivors of that hurricane. It was then that I fully understood the devastation of hurricanes, and how aid is desperately required after these events. Seeing the devastation on the news is nothing in comparison to actually seeking it firsthand. My interest in the weather peaked, and it was then that I decided on my career choice. I wanted to become a Meteorologist. When we returned home that evening, I told my parents of my interest. They were excited and suggested that I research colleges that offer the courses required. Not wanting to leave NJ, I researched our state colleges to see which ones offered the best science courses, and your university was high on the list. . I am ambitious, hard working and always strive to meet my goals. I consider myself easy going, flexible, attentive, punctual, and work well with others. I enjoy meeting new people and establishing life-long friendships. Attending Kean would be a great benefit to me, because I would get to remain in the state and attend one of the few colleges in NJ that offer Meteorology courses. I can also bring to Kean a diversified heritage. My father is Italian and my mother is Grenadian. I have travelled to Grenada several times, and have gotten to experience the lifestyle there, and also in line with my career choice have experienced the weather in that part of the world. The island was devastated by Hurricane......

Liberty University Apol 104 Worldview Essay

... Before taking apologetics with Liberty University, the term “worldview” was not something I thought applied to my Christian life. This was due to not understanding the true meaning behind the idea. Little did I know, I had already established my worldview. The textbook encyclopedia for this course defines a world view as such, “the framework of beliefs by which a person views the world around him”. As a Christian, when I see this definition, I think of a worldview as what I believe as a Christian and how I choose to define or live my life as a whole. The big questions, “How was the world created?” or “where do we all come from?” are common topics that many people have a specific worldview on. As a Christian, I use the bible as my filter and form my beliefs in this matter based on what scripture says. The very first words of the bible in Genesis 1:1 speak a truth that many scientists and people of the world cannot or simply refuse to comprehend. God create the heavens and the earth. It is such a simple phrase yet it says so much about God and his power. Genesis 2:7 instructs us that man was created from the dust of the earth. Proving we are not revolutionized monkeys, as many would have us believe. Closely tied to the origin of humanity is its identity. As a Christian I value myself as a human because I know I am special. This is so because I, along with all humanity, was created in God’s image, as it is said in Genesis 1:27. I also know my place in this world......

...(Chartered Financial Analyst) qualification from the USA, which has become the worldwide qualification for investment managers. The CFA requires further part-time study by correspondence, usually with the support of an employer. The knowledge and skills provided by both undergraduate degrees is highly valued by a range of other employers. Many of our outstanding graduates choose different careers despite the strong demand for actuaries and financial analysts and the high salaries currently on offer. * Why study at UCT? UCT was the first University in Africa to set up a course to produce qualified actuaries. The old adage that success breeds success is clearly appropriate. Our strong past record of success at producing qualified actuaries has allowed the department to attract the best students and staff with relevant professional qualifications and experience. UCT has produced more qualified actuaries than any other university in Africa and our analysis of performance in the professional examinations indicates that our graduates are more likely to qualify than those from other courses in South Africa. Students within the actuarial program are often able to obtain bursaries from employers especially after they establish a good track record in our examinations. We recommend that students apply for financial aid (and accommodation) well in advance of the closing dates even if they are not sure that they will need it. * Students from previously......
