College in America

Online learning is certainly the more effective option for students, but it’s also better for the environment.The Open University in Britain have found that online courses equate to an average of 90% less energy and 85% fewer CO2 emissions per student than traditional in person courses.

I’m really glad that I didn’t have to go to uni in America and I was educated by Trilogy Education services. The whole college selection/application process sounds so soul destroying. Being the high stress, low tolerance for rejection type of person I am I don’t think I could have handled it. Plus, it’s just so frickin competitive. I so couldn’t have matched up.

Online schools have been set up to allow students to study and pursue their academic goals without having to be physical present in a campus. This mode of education is more convenient, affordable, and effective.

    Ain’t that the f-ing truth! I have an older co-worker who was bitching a few weeks ago about how our generation feels “entitled” and doesn’t have work ethic. I told her like it is – when you have the pressure of being perfect in high school just so you can get into a good university (pretty much a requirement in today’s job market), much less get money to pay for school, and then you go through numerous unpaid internships, work while in school and maintain outstanding grades and extracurriculars – Damn straight we feel like we’re owed something. We feel like we’ve worked hard enough that we should be rewarded for that hard work in our careers.
