Problems Encountered by Irregular College Students

Background of the Study
Academic performance really means three things: this means the ability to study and remember facts, it also means being able to think in relation to facts and thirdly, it further means being able to communicate one’s knowledge verbally or practically (www.google.com).
A marching band is a company of instrumental musicians performing outdoors for the purpose of entertainment and sometimes in competition. Instrumentations typically include brass, woodwinds and percussion instruments (en.wikipedia.com).
The marching band at Partido State University was one of the competing units among the marching bands. They joined military parades, concerts, street parades and many more. It means that joining in marching bands had a lot of trainings and practices to be done. In this regards the academic performance of the band members maybe sacrifice because of double priorities. In addition, the society may have different expectations of the performance of the band members according to their own perspectives.
It was observed that there are band members who had incomplete or failing grades. It all depends on how they personally addressed problems as a student and as a band members who got failing grades and incomplete grades faced a consequence of termination as a band scholar. http://reel-life-performing-arts.com/essay-on/Problems-Encountered-By-Irregular-College-Students/134394 Factors Affecting the Academic Performance of the Third Year Education Students in Saint Joseph College of Canlaon

Reasons for Shifting Courses of College Students

...STUDENTS’ SHIFTING OF COURSES:ITS IMPLICATION ON CAREER GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING IN THE COLLEGEOF EDUCATION GRACE H. PASAQUIAN COLLEGE OF EDUCATION Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION Most colleges and universities are faced with challenge and stability during college in time with the student’s selection of course. This phenomenon seems global throughout the educational institution in the tertiary. Students flock to courses which seemingly interest them but tend to shift to other courses at other times. From the point of view of development, individuals given a longer and healthier life span may change overtime and find out that an earlier occupational choices no longer satisfies them viewed from this perspective choices made in adolescence may be less important than the ability to make good decision. Flexibility and willingness to change may be as critical as the ability to commit oneself to particular goal, thus shifting courses is no exemption. It is true that with the exemption of certain schools and certain courses, freshmen and sophomores usually take general introductory courses, while junior and seniors are concentrating in the academic subjects. But what causes the shifting from one course to another would obviously mean that several failures may be responsible for a person’s choice. In the Philippines, College students are not exempted from this tendency. It is commonly experienced these days that a good number of freshmen students shift from one course to......

Poverty in Philippines Among the College Student

...Poverty in the Philippines: Causes, Constraints, and Opportunities comprehensively analyzes the causes of poverty and recommends ways to accelerate poverty reduction and achieve more inclusive growth. The report provides an overview of current government responses, strategies, and achievements in the fight against poverty and identifies and prioritizes future needs and interventions. The analysis is based on current literature and the latest available data, including the 2006 Family Income and Expenditure Survey. Other cause The incomplete land reform aiming at overthrowing the traditionally unequal agrarian society coupled with lack of support for farmers has been a long-lasting flaw in the governments’ development policies that can still massively reduce poverty in the Philippines. Thus, the role of the state remains central to redistribute more equally the wealth created in the country, in order to avoid leaving the poor behind. Supporting the extremely poor must be seen as a long-term investment and counterbalanced with future gains. However, mistrust in the government combined with corruption and/or incompetence makes the overall task much harder, even though it has led to the rise of militant movements that speak in favor of farmers to build fairer trade systems. In a strange way, another problem for the Philippines is that, in spite of having embraced liberalization and international organizations’ rules, they have now ended up less integrated in the world economy...

Confession of a College Student

...Confession of a college student Dwanna Dorsey GEN/195 June 29, 2011 Regina Ford I came into this world on the 14th day of March, in the island of the Philippines. My parents named me Dwanna, which is unique and throughout the years, it fits my personality. When I turned 12, my mother moved my two sisters and me to Carson City, Nevada. The state is beautiful in many ways; outdoor activities are widely available, wildlife is vast, individuals here are welcoming and pleasant. Ever since I was little my mother always said, “Everything happens for a reason,” it was until my mother passed that I understood what she meant. I came to realize life is short. Without any warnings, my life changed. When my beloved son had arrived, I was ecstatic. My family gathered and my sisters asked, “Now that your son is born. What are your plans?” As a result, I read many reference books about how to accomplish goals to ease some thoughts and questioned myself “what am I going to show and tell my son about what I have accomplished in life?” Therefore, I decided to attain a degree in business and accounting. This would help me acquire a good paying job as a public accountant. Making a commitment at this stage of my life, I am afraid that I am incapable to keep up with the extra work and eventually fail. My husband and I discussed the option of not going back to school. However, he has inspired me to become a better person and displayed how easy it is to......

Student at College

...Black students are suspended and expelled at three times the rate of white students. Black students are more than four times as likely as white students - and Latino students are twice as likely - to attend schools where one out of every five teachers does not meet all state teaching requirements. One of the striking statistics to emerge from the data, based on information collected during the 2011-12 academic year, was that even as early as preschool, black students face harsher discipline than other students. In high school, the study found that while more than 70 percent of white students attend schools that offer a full range of math and science courses - including algebra, biology, calculus, chemistry, geometry and physics - just over half of all black students have access to those courses. "We want to have a situation in which students of color - and every student - has the opportunity and access that will get them into any kind of STEM career that takes their fancy," said Claus von Zastrow, director of research for Change the Equation, a nonprofit that advocates improved science, technology, engineering and math education, or STEM, in the United States. The Education Department's report found that black, Latino, American Indian and Native Alaskan students are three times as likely as white students to attend schools with higher concentrations of first-year teachers. In nearly a quarter of school districts with at least two high schools, the teacher salary gap between......

College Students

...College offers students many fields of study, after they become college student, they can choose what they want to learn. But colleges requires students to select classes not inside of their major fields but also outside. As a college student, I want to be a nurse in future. I remember when I went for my advising, the adviser told me I had to do my pre requisite pass my TEASE test before I can enter the nursing program. I asked her the reason why I had to take courses that do not pertain to the course am majoring in. I was confused about what she was trying to tell me. The adviser then explained the reason why I had to do all this course. Some of the reason she said was for student to be able to express them self-better, for them to be creative and lastly to be a divergent and critical thinker. I later went to a seminar that explained the reason why student should take course that is not my major. I strongly agree that college should require every students to take classes that is not that is not the major and also should be graded pass/fail. This is the reason why; first of all, studying other courses gives students chances to make friends with other students in different major fields. In my field my faculty requires every students to take at least two years of pre requisites. I choose to study nursing, am making a lot of good friends while during my pre requisites I meet students from all fields which gives my some ideas on other fields. The second to support my claim......

Shifting of College Students

...As most of us know, most people go to college with the hope of giving themselves the foundation that they need to be successful in life or the skill they need to find a good job. Seeking higher education is a ticket to being financially secured during uncertain economic times. Entering college can be exciting for some, terrifying for others or maybe just another level that should be overcome here in the Philippines, almost all college students were in their teenage years, which can be considered as probably one of the most difficult but undeniably exciting stage of a person’s life. There are numerous issues bombarding teens today, one of which is the luck of direction, as to what path one must undertake to be who he wants to be, or simply, the stage of exploration and identity identification. There are also different factors that could bring out these issues, like peer influence and the mass media. These are only some factors that could have an effect on their whole being. Facing each day with these issues and influences may contribute to one’s performance especially in school. This study confers on several problems faced by most students at present times.

On Depression and College Students

...the most common of the diagnosed mental disorders, is troubling the college students in an increasing rate. Psychologists define depression as mood disorder in which feelings of sadness, loss, anger, or frustration interfere with everyday life for an extended period of time. Although it may sound simple, this ailment should not be underestimated; it must be understood well to avoid grave consequences. Most of the college students fail to notice that they are afflicted by depression, which in turn greatly affect their academic performances. It is imperative that these students be aware of this disorder in order to survive their university lives. First, it should be known to all that depression is caused by many factors instead of believing that it is caused by a one-time event such as failing an exam. Depression among college students may be rooted on their inability to adjust to the culture of their university. Changes in their environment, being away from the family, and new peers and influences stress these students, and when they fail to adapt, they inevitably fall into the abyss of depression. The increased competitiveness in the universities and greater academic demands of parents add to these factors which push students to be depressed. Failure to accomplish these goals and responsibilities over and over is another great leap to sadness and frustration. The different lifestyle of being a college student is another factor due to chemical imbalances, lack of sleep, and......
