Can College Still Get You a Job?

Many of the most successful people in business were college dropouts.

Would You Drop Out for 100K?

Would You Drop Out for 100K?

In this economy, many people question its importance and even suggest that people will be better off skipping higher education and jumping directly into the business world.

Peter Thiel, former CEO of PayPal and the first person to invest in Facebook, has tested this idea multiple times by giving a group of young students money to drop out of college and start a business. In 2013, he gave 20 college students under 20 $100,000 and two years of mentoring from professionals in the business world. The goal was to see if these young adults could make it without an education.

College Activism Not  Dead, Just Different

College Activism Not Dead, Just Different

Some may believe that the passion that often results in student activism is dead. During recent contentious events, such as the Michael Brown shooting, people around the country became vocal on multiple sides of issue. When people looked a colleges and universities to see a reaction, the easiest place to find it was the internet, with photos and videos of students advocating a cause or protesting another. Student activism often begins with a student, but it doesn’t stay in one place.

Absent Young Voters

Many college students may not understand the significance of their thoughts or opinions regarding the welfare of politics. Their insights and initiatives on how to make Connecticut, or even this country, function in a more fruitful and beneficial way are important; however, many do not voice their thoughts. Young peoples’ votes carry more weight than they realize. As recent elections have proven, political decisions can be decided by just a handful of votes.

Developmental Curriculum Changes Explained

In an effort to help college students keep within their credit limits and save on their financial aid expenses, the state of CT passed legislation that changed the way colleges deliver developmental English and Math courses: Public Act 12-40 (PA 1240). This law asks that colleges shorten developmental sequencing, so students do not end up with too many credits that cannot be used toward graduation and will, ultimately, save some of their financial aid dollars.
