Education is the key to the future

Dreams of the future are always successful never considering life.

Education is important to our future. In a perfect world college stu- dents would come straight out of high school and be 18 to 24 years old. Their life would revolve around themselves. They would at- tend class, have fun, and some would work.

“I don’t have kids, I don’t work, I’m an athlete,” says 21 year old Aricela Alvarez. “I run track practice three times a day; so if I’m not running I can be found in the library studying.”

However, as life precedes students start having families, bills, and school. Education is still im- portant, but now must be balanced and scheduled around the family’s needs.

“In the fall semester of 2010 there was a total of 6610 students at- tending TAMUK,” according to the University Statistical Profile Of- fice of Institutional Research. As students get older, they start having families and jobs to support their family. Many commute. Many attend night classes. Some have taken a financial cut to attend TAMUK for a better future.

Education leads to successful careers that support fami- pay bills and have fun.

“Out of 6610 students there are approximately 1701 students 25 up,” according to University Statistical Profile Office of Institutional Research.

Look around a classroom, in the hall, at the SUB, not everyone deals with life in the same manner.

Here they are. They are working towards a successful future with children, spouses, jobs, and other personal issues. “Students’ enrollment at TAMUK as continued to rise since 2007,” according to University Statistical Profile Office of Institutional Re- search.

Life may get in the way but students at TAMUK adapt with each bump in the road.
