At Massasoit Community College, I observed a situation which seemed less an isolated incident and more indicative of a pervasive societal problem: immaturity and inappropriate behavior of students undermining the educational process for other students and professors, resulting in frustration, wasted time, and erosion of classroom atmosphere; my wish is that that students of "immature temperament," regardless of age or educational experience, have a requirement, rather than an option, of an Introduction to the College Experience (currently offered, not mandated, at MCC, perhaps needing adjunctive etiquette and courtesy components), though those most in need might be least insightful.
The worst thing about my school is that a lot of the students there are not there for the right reasons. They go to say that they went to college after high school and because it is cheaper than going to a state college. Most of these same students are the ones receiving financial aid for reasons such as being a single teen parent or never having worked before but the same students will skip, withdraw from classes, or just do not care about doing well in the class. Yet I can't get any money for school.
