It is Responsibility of Everyone

The problem in the Campus Chasm is that we advertise a wrong image and standard, setting up perspective of the work done in colleges to prepare students, when at the end, the reality ends up being another one. When it comes down to having to indicate the issue that is causing student to not receive a proper education, we need to step back and look at the big picture, who is really responsible for it.

As a student mentioned in the article, “College is about more than just classroom assignments or activities outside of class.” This quote has a lot of truth in it; as the student stated, it was not something he really analyzed, but something he simply heard.

The solution is simple, lets analyze the situation and lets truly educate our students, provide the necessary tools to be critical thinkers instead of followers or imitators. There has to be enough and strong expectations from students in order for college to truly get them ready for the real world once they graduate.  It is a collaborative responsibility to be able to make a difference.


Portraying an Image Means Responsibility and Opportunity

Having to be raised in Mexico under a very conservative family, image was always something we are women had to take care of at all times. It was devastating if people would be negatively gossiping about you or your family in any way; therefore, keeping a good reputation has always been important to me.

Creating a digital identity is simply a way to expose my knowledge to the public. I have always been a true believer that any great opportunity that comes along your way needs to be considered and taking a chance for. When I think about creating an image digitally, I think about opportunities. What would be necessary to include for maybe employers to consider me to be part of their organization?

It also comes hand-in-hand with a huge responsibility, of maintaining an excellent image regardless of the situation or purpose.
