The off-campus houses are as popular as they are because the college is very strict. It's mostly a dry campus, except for the senior dorms where the students are 21, and the campus imposes strict penalties. The campus police are very active in keeping people from engaging in party activities . . . so the students have to look elsewhere for parties.
These funds may be awarded to applicants of U. S. military families who are in need of assistance with housing, utilities, medical expenses, groceries, clothing, school supplies and other expenses deemed necessary in order to provide them with some support and alleviate their need,
We're fighting for the 1st Amendment, the separation of church and state, and the integrity of schools. This trial should decide whether a school board can impose its religious views on other students.
It's just a great stock to own here, ... The company is growing in excess of 20 percent. The demographics are great for education. The company is selling at about 15 times what we think they can earn next year. It's also one of the few independent publishers left and so we think it's a strategic acquisition candidate, probably worth over 60 a share, and the stock's at about 45.
I think it's too far in one direction for where we are as a school district, but I'll wait and see what the committee's recommendations are.
Parents are starting to understand that this could be one of the tools for (their children) to get an education. Every kid knows that that's an opportunity for them to get off the island and go look for education.
Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton once said, 'High expectations are the key to everything' and we agree. Since April of this year, Wal-Mart Watch has been leading the public education campaign to reveal the full effects of Wal-Mart's business practices. Launching Higher Expectations Week with 200-plus charter partners moves us into the next phase of our efforts. Unprecedented in size and scope, Higher Expectations Week unifies concerned citizens to highlight the myriad problems Wal-Mart creates. Together, this national movement is moving toward making the retailing giant a better employer, neighbor and corporate citizen. We are also a sponsor of the educational efforts for the new film by Robert Greenwald, 'Wal-Mart The High Cost of Low Prices' and believe as people view this film, the momentum for our efforts will only continue to grow.
I think he's as good a lineman as there is in college football. He plays so hard, consistently. I think an awful lot of Larry and he can do anything he wants in football. I just know there's not an overabundance of guys that play as hard as he does and have the athleticism and want-to that he does.
The needs of an 18-year-old in a college setting is something parents don't have a lot of direct experience with. Parents have to be a little elastic in all of this. There may be some very elementary kinds of things you haven't planned for.
With Bach, there's always something more, another level. I can do it (the 'St. John Passion') for the rest of my life and find something more. . . . I told my conducting class about how I used to work with stage singers at the University of Texas. We did
And even very recently, when Taliban was in office, we took the humanitarian task of building hospital, for instance, schools and other arrangements.
We have so many good colleges. If you're honest, it's not the education they get as much as the connections, the people they meet. And that's where a lot of it's at.
Wherever we go, whatever we do, self is the sole subject we study and learn.
That's the kind of attitude we have here at Cumberland. Everyone sacrifices for the good of the school. We have a lot of people to thank.
I performed adequately at school, but in comparison to my older brother, who set the record for the highest cumulative average for our high school, my performance was decidedly mediocre.
I never went to business school. I was just bumbling through a lot of my life. I was like the guy behind the curtain in The Wizard of Oz.
I was tired of (cooking) and wanted to do the college thing.
None of my characters seem to have had sex yet - I haven't written about that. And I wouldn't want to deal with what's happening in Oregon - the school shootings.
It gives us an opportunity to see if there's a chance that something could be done off the coast of Virginia. If we don't stick a study of Virginia in the plan, then we don't get the opportunity to look at Virginia at all.
A gentleman, in his plans, thinks of the Way he does not think how he is going to make a living. Even farming sometimes has a shortage and even learning may incidentally bring a salary. A gentleman is concerned with the progress of the Way he is not anxious about poverty.
I'd known Scott since grade school. He was the best friend you could ever have. Whenever you needed him he was there. He'd do anything for people.
There are more women being accepted and graduating from college today, whether it be the hotel schools or law schools or medical schools, than ever before. It's over 50 percent.
We are thrilled to bring College Hoops 2K6 to the Xbox 360. College basketball fans are die-hard, so we worked hard to deliver a game that would bring the intensity of college basketball to life. College Hoops 2K6 creates unique and exciting atmospheres, which are only enhanced by the power of the Xbox 360.
It's easier to get things done when you have an ISD. People are more willing to vote on tax increases, on bond issues, because they know their tax increases are going to their kids at their high school.
We don't have to do this to get accredited, but when (North Central) reviews the materials they look for how we are sure students are competent in areas. Every university is faced with accountability.
All your games are pretty much at the same time and there are not enough breaks. Everybody is scheduled at the same time. The college coaches don't get a chance to see everybody.
On the country has gathered the idea of a natural way of life of peace, innocence, and simple virtue. On the city has gathered the idea of an achieved centre of learning, communication, light. Powerful hostile associations have also developed on the city as a place of noise, worldliness and ambition on the country as a place of backwardness, ignorance, limitation. A contrast between country and city, as fundamental ways of life, reaches back into classical times.
A Winner's Blueprint for Achievement BELIEVE while others are doubting. PLAN while others are playing. STUDY while others are sleeping. DECIDE while others are delaying. PREPARE while others are daydreaming. BEGIN while others are procrastinating. WORK while others are wishing. SAVE while others are wasting. LISTEN while others are talking. SMILE while others are frowning. COMMEND while others are criticizing. PERSIST while others are quitting.
Platt High School is a very good and very well-coached basketball team. For our kids to stay with them for as long as they did is a major accomplishment for them and something to look forward to for next year.
The schools are the ones taking on the responsibility of restructuring, and we help set up the principles and model for them to follow.
