Liberal Arts Education: Thinkingthe Consequences - 1,606 words
Liberal arts is a generalized term for a broad range of subjects including history, philosophy, and literature. These courses do not necessarily provide a solid foundation for a trade or profession, a lot of students ask or think why am I taking this class? or why is it necessary to take a class that is not really going to help me become a doctor or lawyer?

Benefits Of A Christain Liberal Arts School - 365 words
Christians today have a different view of the world than those of other faiths. Following Gods teachings, not the worlds ideas of what is appropriate and decent, is part of being an educated Christian. Knowing the world around us but not being part of it is hard. Standing up for what the Bible teaches is a challenge. Going to a Christian college can have a roll in preparing us for living in todays world. Liberal arts Christian colleges help young adults become well rounded Christians in the real world. Having a smaller professor to student ratio makes it is easier to have discussions. There are more opportunities to get to know the professor more personally. At universities, a graduate stude ...

Religions Influence On The American School System - 631 words
The formation of our modern American School System has been heavily influenced by the religious views of our predecessors, the colonial settlers of New England. The general interest of settlers in their childrens ability to read, their establishment of elementary and secondary grammar schools, and the founding of colleges and universities were all religiously motivated advances in early American education. While the twentieth century has brought about a separation between church and state (in this case, state referring to education), the roots of education in religion are still readily apparent. The moral theology of Puritanism, the dominant religion in seventeenth century New England, seems ...

... re regions of Canada. Due to these glaciers a lot of water was concentrated and the water levels in the oceans went down, revealing a 1,000-mile landmass between Siberia and Alaska. Geographers have called this landmass the Bering Land Bridge or Beringia. Further, due to the glaciation much of the natural vegetation shifted southwards. The animals that are today found in cold regions followed them. For instance, the reindeer, lemmings etc. then lived in places that are extremely warm for them today. Archaeological evidence shows that the walrus existed in parts of Virginia during that age. The first American Indians were hunters and gatherers who stayed in bands of twenty to fifty people ...

College Admition - 339 words
My education in New York has allowed me to find so many new aspects of my self, my cultures (my two cultures of East and West), and my languages. My time here has also allowed me to see how each of these aspects relates to the others. Because of the rewards I have already gained, I hope to continue my education here. I am particularly drawn to Vassar College for a number of reasons. I want to stay in New York, near my guardian and younger brother. I also feel that Vassars size is ideal. Your student-faculty ratio of 12 to 1 is a very important advantage for me, and I think I would benefit immensely from such focused academic study. Finally, an undergraduate place at Vassar would allow me to ...

Excellence In Education - 1,413 words
The concept of excellence in education is one that, on the surface, seems to be unquestionable. After all, who would not accede that students within our schools should, in fact, excel? Certainly teachers, parents, and administrators can agree on excellence as an aim to shoot for. The interpretation of the term excellence is, however, less obvious. How do we regard excellence? Is it the college bound student with a broad liberal arts education? Is it the student who graduates high school trained in a specific trade? Many in the field of education cannot come to an agreement on how our schools can best achieve excellence for and from our students. One of the many authorities who have contribut ...

What would life be like with a severe disability? Physical disabilities seem to be very stressful because many of them develop overtime, but the majority of them do not affect ones communication. The thought of being deaf seems to be far fetched to me, however it could occur under certain circumstances and like other people, I would have to adjust accordingly. Although being deaf is a disability in which most are born with, its the disability with the biggest impact on ones way of communicating. Im amazed to think that people become accustomed to communicating other than verbally. This phenomenon is possible through American Sign Language or ASL. Today American Sign Language is a complex vis ...

Reflective Essay - 956 words
What were the motives behind choosing a major in nursing? What have been the reasons behind these reasons? When I look back, it seems like I've always wanted to pursue such a career due to my mother who was and still is in such a profession. I remember, ever since the seventh grade, my plans of being a successful registered nurse. I can still remember my seventh grade project. It was to write about where I saw myself ten years into the future. I wrote that I was a registered nurse that had just graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles. I even put a picture of a nurse helping a patient. I had cut out the face of one of my pictures and put it in place of the original nurse's he ...

Intellectual Life Of The Painters Of The Early Renaissance - 1,298 words
Before attempting to answer the question it is important to consider what we mean by early Italian Renaissance. Unlike many periods in history the Renaissance has no obvious start and end dates, for the purposes of this assignment I will define the approximate period within which to look as about 1390 to about 1520. 1390 represents the time when the Carrara court in Padua was gaining an intellectual reputation of excellence, as well as this being about the time that two Roman coin like medals were cast of Francesco II and his father. This represents a typically renaissance trait of looking to antiquities for inspiration, as will be discussed later. The time around 1520 represents when Raphae ...

Writers develop original fiction and non-fiction for books, magazines, newspapers, online distributions, newsletters, television, movies, and radio.

Before stepping into the caterpillar tunnel I looked back at my parents, seeking reassurance, but I sensed from their plastered-on grins and overly enthus-iastic waves that they were more terrified than I. I gave them a departing wave, grabbed my violin case, and commenced my first solitary journey. Seated in the plane I began to study the pieces I would soon be performing, trying to dispel the flutterings in my stomach. I listened to some professional recordings on my Walkman, mimicking the fingerings with my left hand while watching the sheet music. Where ya goin? smiling businessman-seatmate interrupt ...
