High School to College Timeline Mid June Make list of Late July Early July Made arrangements materials for Bought books for dorm and college roommate Late June 2013 Mid July Late AugustEarly June Visited college Bought First day of2013 campus again pencils, pens, collegeGraduated and other toolsFrom MBSH for college
Scenario 1Two friends go off to two different college…. Andboth graduate one is well educated and speaks as ifshe/he is educated. The other talks as if he neverattend college nor graduate and he doesn’t have ajob…. Should we blame colleges for the personalityand the behavior of college graduates.
I wouldn’t blame the college. I would blamethe friend, because clearly this is the result ofhis choices while he was in college.
Scenario 2A boy just started college three weeks ago his motheris a teacher and his father is a pastor who loves hisBOY…. When hes around campus he’s cool walkingaround all coupled up with girls but in the evening hesecretly drinking heavily. He wakes up his roommatewhen he and his friends come in to crash and end upvomiting and passing out in the room. His roommateis upset because this is happening every night latelyand he has warned that if he keeps waking him up at3:00smevery night that he is going to inform theresident assistant (RA) of the dorm.
After many warnings, I would be tired too.Frankly, I would have already arranged for himto be banned after the third time that he pulledthis little charade.
