College News: The Freshman Fifteen, Money in College, and More
September 06, 2012 :: Admissionado Team
Freshman year of college, for better or for worse, ends up being the year of excesses. Excessive drinking, excessive eating, excessive spending, excessive… well, everything. Knowing that ahead of time could make a HUGE difference with how you handle the entire college experience and beyond. Students aren’t the only ones facing consequences in the news this week, either. Looks like there could be some BIG changes coming to how your college presidents earn those paychecks…
In the US, we refer to this as the “Freshman Fifteen,” and it’s no surprise at all.
This makes your choice of major even more important, since it will HEAVILY influence your chances of getting a good job and paying off those debts later on.
No shopping sprees followed by keggers that go on the credit cards, people.
Will it help students by making administration more accountable, or will it shift priorities to maximize statistics?
