I got involved when I was a graduate student at UCLA when UCLA was the first site on the net.
I was a solid C student because I was doing so many plays. I was a drama nerd, but I was also kind of a Zelig-like character; I would shift between different groups of people. But the people I spent most of my time with were either chorus or swing choir or the drama nerds.
I wasn’t a great student, but I was interested in this theater thing, and I could spend hours in the library researching why the cuffs in the 18th century had four buttons. It was my handle.
I was a good student; I was a good boy. I got A’s, and I did all the papers right.

My one thing is I continue to be interested and want to be a student. I don’t want to be a master. When I’m learning something, I’m in my element.

I started doing science when I was effectively 20, a graduate student of Salvador Luria at Indiana University. And that was – you know, it took me about two years, you know, being a graduate student with Luria deciding I wanted to find the structure of DNA; that is, DNA was going to be my objective.
I’m excited about going back to ‘Today,’ but, at odd moments, I’ll grit my teeth in anxiety. I feel like a student before the start of school. I’ve got my new shoes and my book bag, but I’m not sure I’ll remember how to do trigonometry. During my maternity leave, I haven’t used many words of more than one syllable.
Although attracted by the humanities, I had chosen medicine as a career, seduced by the image of the ‘man in white’ dispensing care and solace to the suffering. But science was lurking around the corner, in the form of an unpaid student assistantship in the laboratory of physiology.

I was a film student. I became an actor, but I thought I’d be pursuing filmmaking originally.
When I was a grad student at MIT, I had a chance to become friends with the Viking Mission’s chief scientist, Dr. Gerald Soffen. Viking was the first Mars lander looking for signs of life on Mars.
On YouTube, there’s a right-wing extremism funnel. You start by watching a college student ranting about how dumb feminism is. It’s wrong, but it’s not especially sinister. And then, three suggested videos later, you’re hearing about why we need a white ethno-state to save the race from a third-world invasion.
Being a good Hans Haacke student, part of his influence on me is that there’s no difference between a gallery show and a film – or even an ad and a T-shirt-in terms of cultural legitimacy. They’re just different contexts in which to have some sort of communication.

The ideal college is Mark Hopkins on one end of a log and a student on the other.
After ‘Student Of The Year,’ when I played that baby-doll, diva character, I knew I would be stereotyped, and I wanted to break that image of me. I loved that role, but I don’t want to be attached to one particular genre, so ‘Highway’ was a blessing in disguise.

Unfortunately, the highly curious student is a small percentage of the kids.

You are always a student, never a master. You have to keep moving forward.

I had no choice but to work hard. I was a straight-A student, went to college, and I loved business. I never thought I was going to be a singer myself. It came accidentally.
I’m not an A student; I’m not even a B student, but I’ve gotten a lot better with the reading because of texts. And I can voice-text and say whatever I want to people.

The issue here isn’t whether every student is brainwashed, it’s whether it is appropriate.
Living in London as a student is tough. And my heart goes out to every single drama student in London because, as an actor, it’s a creative process that you are taking on, and if you don’t get to do it every day, it hurts.
I wasn’t a good student in high school. I wanted to go to college, but they weren’t exactly beating down my door to offer me admission, and it’s so expensive in the U.S. If you join up for a period, the army will pay your school and provide a stipend.
Every student of comedy should see Dame Edna at least twice.

Our professor was Marty Scorsese. Marty was a graduate student, or Mr. Scorsese, which is what I had to call him, and still do when I see him ’cause he gave me a C.

When I was a student at Mizzou, I was a daycare teacher. I did it because was a latchkey kid.
I was always a good student. I wasn’t the A-plus student, but I studied really hard, and I probably had a 3.2. I always wished that I had the capacity to get straight A’s, but I didn’t. I didn’t beat myself up about it, but I really studied hard for my grades.
I grew up in New York City. In elementary school, I was a charter member of the Scribble Scrabble Club, and in high school, my poems were published in an anthology of student poetry.
I did a lot of student acting when I was young.
That was really so upsetting when you are trying to pass on some very serious knowledge and be basically, treated worse than a student coming off the street because his father pays the tuition. Come on. Give me a break. This is no school. This is a joke.
I was an art student at the time, like thousands of others.
I know the game well. I’m a student of basketball; I know what it takes to win.

Student loans are delaying retirements. They’re suppressing the housing market. They’re suffocating new business formation. They’re even leading young people to delay getting married and having children.
South Africa never leaves one indifferent. Its history, its population, its landscapes and cultures – all speak to the visitor, to the student, to the friend of Africa.
As a freshman in college, I was having a lot of trouble adjusting. I took a meditation class to handle anxiety. It really helped. Then as a grad student at Harvard, I was awarded a pre-doctoral traveling fellowship to India, where my focus was on the ancient systems of psychology and meditation practices of Asia.
I think our model is sustainable. If all schools operated like Liberty and charged what we charge, there wouldn’t be a student loan problem in America.
When I was six or seven, we went to the nearest English primary school, St Weonards, about seven miles away. The teaching was good, and this was the start of my beginning to shine as a student.

Teaching can be learning, especially if student curiosity with the question ‘What’s going on here?’ can be elicited.
When I was a student there in the mid-1990s, they had just created the weekend; depth and individuality were slowly returning after the austere, colorless low of the 1970s. When I returned to live in China from 2005 to 2013, the country was building everything anew.
As a college student, what really interested me was the human brain and human intelligence.
As any student of literature knows, the books that last are often not the books that are most popular when they are written. Both ‘Moby Dick’ and ‘The Great Gatsby’ were complete failures, critically and commercially, when they first appeared.
I, at the age of 17 or 18 as a medical student, suddenly came up against a problem: ‘What am I? What is the meaning of my existence as I experience it?’

I was in the drama club, and I was one of seven co-presidents of the student body. Students elected me; I don’t know why! There were only 330 kids in my high school, though, so it wasn’t a lot of kids to impress or reign over.
As a digital technology writer, I have had more than one former student and colleague tell me about digital switchers they have serviced through which calls and data are diverted to government servers or the big data algorithms they’ve written to be used on our e-mails by intelligence agencies.

I wrote this script in 2003, when I was a humble college student, sitting in my boxers and writing in my dorm room. And I came up with the idea of writing an action-based ‘Snow White,’ with this kind of Huntsman character as kind of a way in. So, that’s something I’m sort of proud of.
For a black student to work in southwest Mississippi for example – or in the Delta in 1960, 1961, 1962 – was high-risk work.
If I can get some student interested in science, if I can show members of the general public what’s going on up there in the space program, then my job’s been done.

I was married to a law student, and I used to attend classes with him at Georgetown University Law Center. Being of dramatic bent, I was drawn mainly to Criminal law and Evidence classes. A just-beginning writer, I would find an empty chair and listen, mesmerized, to the lectures.
I really look forward to that opportunity to be a student and discover things. That keeps it interesting for me. And I sometimes get easily bored, and there are still some things I wanna talk about instead of repeating something.
I went to the Wharton School of Finance, the toughest place to get into. I was a great student.
I’ve only been living in England for the last 10 years, if you don’t count my student years.
I had never thought that I would be involved in narrative structures. As a young guy, I was more interested in abstract modeling.

The C student starts a restaurant. The A student writes restaurant reviews.
I ran the high school newspaper and was in student government. I played sports my whole life but was never picked as captain.

No, I’m not a student of Snake Eyes, but we trained in the same dojo.
I was a student of Stella Adler and then later Lee Strasberg, and they were into sensory work. At its best, acting is not about words – even when the words are important.

I was your C student. I paid attention in the classes that were about how to get elected.
I studied in Britain and spent great moments of my life there as a student living in Belsize Park. I admire the British trait of the stiff upper lip in the face of adversity. My wife studied in Britain, too, and both of us have many friends there.
When I was a student and rushing to finish a project, my gut instinct was usually to keep adding all kinds of features. It’s a way of papering over the fact that you haven’t quite nailed your concept yet.
O friend unseen, unborn, unknown, Student of our sweet English tongue, I never indulge in poetics – Unless I am down with rheumatics.
I have so much respect for the genre of country music and for all the greats that have been a part of it. I’m a country singer, I’m a country fan, and I’m a student of country music.
I always feel a bit trapped when a painting goes for millions of pounds and only one person can have it. If you can have that as well as a poster on every student’s wall, then you’re in a very enviable position. I’d like to do a Damien Hirst for £500 at some point.
Responsibility for learning belongs to the student, regardless of age.
The higher amount you put into higher education, at the federal level particularly, the more the price of higher education rises. It’s the dog that never catches its tail. You increase student loans, you increase grants, you increase Pell grants, Stafford loans, and what happens? They raise the price.
I was an A student and I liked creative writing.
To answer the question, though: I didn’t always want to direct. I just liked the idea of it. If a friend was making a short and needed someone who knew screen direction, I would jump in. It would be horrible, but it led to a short, then another, and another. It was like student films.
My teacher, Josef Gingold, a student of the French school, always loved the music of Saint-Saens and Henri Vieuxtemps and all the French repertoire.

I really enjoyed Princeton as a graduate student.
James Remar is a student of life.
I got to train with some of the best and have critics like Oscar de la Renta and Calvin Klein. As a student under Calvin Klein, my project was to make a coat, and then years later, I was hired at Calvin, by Calvin, to design coats for him. It came full circle!
I cannot even open an umbrella properly. How could I ever have been a civil engineering student?
Every single university student should study philosophy. You need to lead the examined life and question your beliefs. If you don’t learn critical thinking, then political debate degenerates into a contest of slogans.
If you go to an elite school where the other students in your class are all really brilliant, you run the risk of mistakenly believing yourself to not be a good student.
My son is trying to be a sports writer, and my daughter is a college student. She wants to be a comedy writer, and she’s at film school. I discouraged both of them early on from getting involved in Starbucks. I didn’t think it would be fair; plus, they didn’t have any interest anyway.
He was what I often think is a dangerous thing for a statesman to be – a student of history; and like most of those who study history, he learned from the mistakes of the past how to make new ones.

There are three elements to perceived popularity. A student has to be visible, recognizable and influential.
The things that inform student culture are created and controlled by the unseen culture, the sociological aspects of our climbing culture, our ‘me’ generation, our yuppie culture, our SUVs, or, you know, shopping culture, our war culture.
Anybody who instantly goes from being a poet and a graduate student to being a public figure has to be in a state of shock. First people want to praise you, and then they want to attack you. No one can prepare you for it.
Until fairly recently, Amish teachers would reprimand the student who raised his or her hand as being too individualistic. Calling attention to oneself, or being ‘prideful,’ is one of the cardinal Amish worries. Having your name or photo in the papers, even talking to the press, is almost a sin.
It’s something you dream about, working in Scotland, working in Glasgow, walking down the same streets I used to walk down when I was a drama student, daydreaming about being in an American TV show or doing something that was well known. I guess I sort of pinch myself.
Terms such as ‘microaggression,’ describing an inadvertent act of offense, have entered the college lexicon, empowering an atmosphere of prior restraint on speech. And many colleges are also disinviting speakers in fear of offending certain elements of their student communities.
Finally, I was no longer a student and was making music for myself.
I was never a good student. I had to be dragged into kindergarten. It was hard to sit and listen to somebody talk. I wanted to be out, educated by experience and adventure, and I didn’t know how to express that.
I have always believed that 98% of a student’s progress is due to his own efforts, and 2% to his teacher.
People have been predicting the death of philosophy since the 17th century. When I was a student, people were saying, ‘We’re in the last days of philosophy.’ Then we were told in the ’60s it would be replaced by sociology, then by literary criticism.
People internalize, from the jail to student loan debt, to credit card debt, to unemployment to the whole collective. It manifests itself in many ways, in people’s home lives, domestic stuff.
I actually had a job while I was acting and was a nursing student, which I had to drop due to my 9-5 job at the time. I managed an instrument room at a hospital in the Bronx.
I was like the family clown. The middle child entertaining. I was a lousy student, but interestingly, the nuns always let me write plays or do drawings, endless special projects.
I had done student films for the School Of Visual Arts and for NYU and all these schools in New York, so those were my first film experiences, but they were student films, so I guess they don’t really count.
By junior high, I was a horrible student. But during my sophomore year of high school, I did have a fabulous English teacher, and I would go to school just for her class and then skip out afterwards. That’s actually when I started writing, although I didn’t think of it then as something I might someday do.
I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do in school, but I definitely didn’t have adequate time to reach my full potential as a student.
Pierre Curie came to see me and showed a simple and sincere sympathy with my student life. Soon he caught the habit of speaking to me of his dream of an existence consecrated entirely to scientific research, and he asked me to share that life.
In the 1970s, what I, as a young foreign student studying in the United States, found most dynamic, exciting and impressive about this country is what much of the world continues to value most about the U.S. today: its open intellectual culture, its great universities, its capacity for discovery and innovation.
There were some extremely good teachers there that were great artists really in their own right. It was actually very hard to concentrate on getting down to going any work being an art student especially when it’s a flighty thing at best.
You would think, because I stayed to myself and I was shy, that I’d be a good student, but actually, I was a bad student. I was in detention a lot, mainly for cutting, being late to class. I was in tardy hall a lot. I hate the idea of homework. I don’t get it.
Mrs. Thatcher was a powerful figure at the time I was a student in London. And I admire her versatility and strength.
I’m happy to be helping people that are passionate about empowering parents for student learning.
I hardly ever missed school, and I always got my work in on time. I was a good student and always got top grades.
It’s a good idea to revitalize community colleges, to cut back, to modify the student loan program so it doesn’t go through banks.
I love that UNLV is a big-little school, that you can still have access and support as a student.
The message from the Technion when I was a student was: ‘You will be so good that when you graduate, everyone will want to hire you.’
I wasn’t the student body this, student body that. I was not much into running for office.
My worst holiday was in Athens when I was a young drama student at Rada in 1965. I ran out of money. I had my things stolen and I wasn’t able to speak a word of the language.
When I was a vocalist, a lead singer in a rock band, I was a law student at the time. It wasn’t a professional rock band, it was for fun. I was already way out of that by the time Phantom came along. Having to learn to sing, it was such duress, having to really try and get to such a quality.
We were studying at Newport Film School, and I found that the only way for me to make films – because you need people and you need equipment – was that I had to be a student.
Believe it or not, the first spark for everything I’ve done today came down to me meeting one person in college who changed my life. A student named Anthony Adams who lived across the hall from me in our freshman dorm showed me what it meant to be an ‘entrepreneur’ when I saw him launch his own start-up company.
I’ve always been interested in DIY and home renovation – even from my first student flat. I’ve always left places better than when I moved in.
Learn when and how to use different data structures and their algorithms in your own code. This is harder as a student, as the problem assignments you’ll work through just won’t impart this knowledge. That’s fine.
At the peak of his scientific triumphs, Newton became a ‘head,’ a student of the inner spiritual world – or in modern terms, a neurologician. Modern physicists do not dwell on this dramatic life-change in their hero.
Dartmouth is such a special college with its rich history, dedicated student body, and, as I’ve been learning more recently, colorful customs.
I’ll always be a student. I learn by doing.
One of the most important improvements in the No Child Left Behind Act for migrant students was the requirement for electronic transfer of migrant student records.
I became a student of the history of religion. I am fascinated by how religions often center on mystical experience, and in the Old Testament tradition you find flames, the burning bush.
I was student council president in high school, and even in law school, I was vice-president of the student bar association.
I was baptized as an infant. I was confirmed as an adolescent; I was active in my church’s youth group and in my university student group. I was married before the church’s altar; trained at the church’s seminaries, ordained deacon and priest at age 24.
I was a bit of a delinquent growing up, a very poor student – I nearly failed several grades before dropping out of high school and getting a G.E.D. But I still read a lot. Thrillers and war novels, mostly, along with the occasional literary novel from my parents’ bookshelf.
I have younger friends who are in this pinch where they feel they’ve been counted out before they’ve had a chance to prove themselves. They’ve inherited a lot of debt – not just student debt but environmental debt, political debt. They really feel squeezed.
I was a young film student around the time of the new wave in film in the 1970s; old Hollywood was naff and over. For me, as a film student, I was going to see French and Italian cinema; American cinema was ‘Easy Rider’ and ‘Taxi Driver.’ Everything was gritty.
Ambiguity around ambiguity is forgivable in an unpublished poet and expected of an arts student on the pull: for a professional comedian demoting himself to the role of ‘thinker’, with stadiums full of young people hanging on his every word, it won’t really do.
Teacher compensation isn’t the only factor in cultivating great teaching. Other important priorities include changing how we measure student performance, providing more flexibility to teacher-preparation programs, and improving how we train and support principals.
I remember when I saw ‘X-Men’ the first time, I was living in England as an exchange student, and my first boyfriend, who’s an Englishman, made me watch the movie… He was very jealous that I liked Hugh Jackman so much.
I went to uni and then drama school afterwards and lived in quite a few student houses.
Hypersegregated inner-city schools – in which one finds no more than five or ten white children, at the very most, within a student population of as many as 3,000 – are the norm, not the exception, in most northern urban areas today.
My father was a graduate student at Oxford in the early 1960s, where the conventions and etiquette of clothing were crucial to the pervasive class consciousness of the place and time.
I had been a student in Vienna, and one of the neat little things I had found out was about that zoo. It was a good debut novel for me to have published. I was 26 or 27 when it was published. I already had a kid and would soon have a second.
My scientific pursuits have led to many opportunities and responsibilities beyond those of simply doing research. For example, as a beginning graduate student, it never occurred to me that the life of a scientist could involve so much travel, something that I have always loved.
I think I was a good student, because I jumped over a school. My main interest was basically history and literature. Sports were basically basketball and swimming at a pool. I was so happy.
My university teacher and mentor Kenneth Arrow remembers me as a student who asked good questions. Although I had not previously thought of myself in that way, on reflection I think that Arrow was right.
I don’t have freedom in the United States to go into a public school and preach the Gospel, nor is a student free in a public school to pray, or a teacher free to read the Bible publicly to the students. At the same time, we have a great degree of freedom for which I am grateful.
My husband was working as principal of an urban transformation high school – the kind of public charter school determined to do whatever it takes to give its mostly minority, low-income student body the education they need and deserve to be successful in life.
For me, I was always the only woman in my cohort, first as a mechanical engineering undergraduate student, then as a chemical engineering graduate student. There were very few women getting degrees in those fields at the time. My role models were men – great men role models.
A graduate student who is still learning courses is not really taking a maximum advantage of a research university’s offerings. He should already be finished with course-taking, as he would then be able to shape his own taste about what is a good subject for research work in the graduate school.
In February of this year I returned to China to research my next book. The authorities know about the novels of mine that have been published in the west, including the latest one, Beijing Coma, about a student shot in Tiananmen Square, but so far have allowed me to return.
We cannot give our students all that they expect, whether by way of the quality of their schooling or by way of the jobs that they were hoping to get. Student frustration is a worldwide phenomenon, pushing our societies into adjusting faster than they are used to.
When student performance shows increases on test scores, that improvement is not associated with an increase in ‘fluid intelligence’ – that is, using logical thinking and problem solving in novel situations, rather than recalling previously learned facts and skills.
I chose my classes based on which professors did not take attendance, and then I traded Padres tickets for notes from class. I wasn’t the student of the month.
One of the things about being a law student is that the academic discipline of law is very often removed from the practical reality of law. How to complain, who to complain to, and whether or not you even need to invoke the law is very different in the real world from how it’s examined in the lecture theatre.
The subject of Finnish poetry ought to have a special interest for the Japanese student, if only for the reason that Finnish poetry comes more closely in many respects to Japanese poetry than any other form of Western poetry.
You never know who you’re talking to. Don’t limit a young student’s dream, because that’s how we change the world.
I had been offered fellowships to enter as a graduate student at either Harvard or Princeton. But the Princeton fellowship was somewhat more generous, since I had not actually won the Putnam competition… Thus Princeton became the choice for my graduate study location.
I had a certificate that said, ‘Doctor of Mixology, Harvard University,’ that I actually got from Harvard University. A friend of mine was a research assistant over there and it was one of those student or university perks and she brought me in on that. So I am a doctorate from Harvard and it only took me one afternoon.
I was a horrible student. I really hated school.
In a sinful world, no community can exist for long where nobody is ever held accountable: no teacher would grade a student’s performance; no citizen would sit on a jury or call a failed leader to account.
I was always a very good student.
We need to make college affordable in price, and also have lower-cost student loans and more available grants for students.
I love student life, but I also loved, from a young age, being in a working environment where you are treated as an adult.
Even growing up the way I did, I was shocked by the level of poverty I saw as a college student. I thought the best way to understand it was to get close to it on the ground level.
I hate ‘Rolling Stone’ – because I loved it so much. I had the ‘Cheap Tricks’ cover and the Clash cover on my wall for years, and I just hate what happened to it. It just became the smarmy grad student that sits next to you on the bus.
Teachers support evaluations based on multiple measures: student growth, classroom observation and feedback from peers and parents.
As a graduate student, I wrote a long paper connecting the dots between mathematical models of learning and language development in children. It was published in a major journal.
As for the symphonic activities… when I was a student at the Eastman School of Music, I became exposed to a lot more musical forms, elements, opportunities, and I fell in love with strings and their uses.
Standardized testing is at cross purposes with many of the most important purposes of public education. It doesn’t measure big-picture learning, critical thinking, perseverance, problem solving, creativity or curiosity, yet those are the qualities great teaching brings out in a student.
The most superficial student of Roman history must be struck by the extraordinary degree in which the fortunes of the republic were affected by the presence of foreigners, under different names, on her soil.
Every American college student goes to college with a hard drive. They take their laptop. There’s not a CD player in sight.
I had a briefcase at one point, but it was a kind of 1980s New Wave briefcase. It was made of some kind of cardboard and it had metal hinges. It was kind of faux industrial looking, and I used to carry my books in it rather than a backpack. I didn’t want to have normal student accoutrements.
I was taken out of school by my dad when I was 11 and lived in Mexico City, then later in Paris. I went with him to excavate in Bolivia and Peru. I never finished high school. I was a straight F student anyway. My father admitted to me later that he’d thought I would come to no good.
It was only in the early 1990s – during my student years as an aspiring scientist at Delhi University – that I discovered the world of cinema.
My student days in PSG saw three Prime Ministers, two wars, taught us courage, resilience, leadership and optimism.
The student will try to defy the master. Always.
Private student loans should be avoided at all costs.
Good dental care doesn’t make you a good student, but if your tooth hurts, it’s hard to be a good student.
Mentors provide professional networks, outlets for frustration, college and career counseling, general life advice, and most importantly, an extra voice telling a student they are smart enough and capable enough to cross the stage at graduation and land their first paycheck from a career pathway job.
I participated on debating teams and in student government, and served as senior class president.
The difference between the National Football League and college is this: In college, you are a broke college student.
It was my great good fortune, while I was still a student at college, to have possessed a copy of an English translation of his great work ‘The Sensations of Tone.’ As is well known, this was one of Helmholtz’s masterpieces.
At MIT, I had the good fortune for seven years to teach network theory, which is basic to many disciplines, to one-third of the undergraduate student body. It was an experiment to see how high we could bring their level of understanding, and it exceeded all of my expectations.
By providing every student with a quality education, and the materials they need for class and to do their homework, we can help students from all backgrounds learn and thrive.
Faulkner turned out to be a great teacher. When a student asked a question ineptly, he answered the question with what the student had really wanted to know.
I tell a student that the most important class you can take is technique. A great chef is first a great technician. ‘If you are a jeweler, or a surgeon or a cook, you have to know the trade in your hand. You have to learn the process. You learn it through endless repetition until it belongs to you.
All my books are made up of other books. They’re all deeply structured on other fiction, because I was a student in fiction and I didn’t have much actual living to draw on. I suspect a lot of other people’s novels are like that, too, though they might be slower to talk about it.
I think every high school student who was alert during the early ’60s got very embittered by the slow progress and the violence surrounding the Civil Rights Movement.
I was a good student. I was lame. I was into school and didn’t really go out much, so I guess I wasn’t the coolest person on the planet.
Certainly, grades only matter so much when you’re in Hollywood. But I became an utterly motivated, devoted, committed student. I was a good student because I was convinced that it would somehow help me in my quest to become a filmmaker.
I was nerdy and really into computers. I was a good student until my senior year, when I started traveling and had a lot of absences.
If you can get a teen leader in each sector of a student population, you can pull people in. Everybody wants to get involved, but most are too afraid. When they see a person they think is cool leading it, they’re first to join.
I have a father who was the first black student at his junior high and high school and had to do a lot to get to that point.
Feminism is very much a part of a lot of my student’s lives, but they’re not going to march about it or take a public political stance. And I think more and more young women are claiming that they’re not feminists – even though they are.
I took a gap year myself after high school and worked on a farm near Lyon, France. I stayed with the Vallet family, picked and packed fruit, and discovered that red wine can be a breakfast drink. That led to further travel as a university student.
For too many years, politicians in Washington have been eager to pledge more hard-earned taxpayer dollars to help deal with the student debt load. But this doesn’t sit right with the many Americans who take pride in making fiscally responsible choices and paying off their loans on time.
I was not a student of Wall Street, but I was a quick study.
I was a very good student. Procrastinating gives me anxiety, and getting a B really ticked me off. Sure, I didn’t always want to do my homework, but I actually really liked school. As nerdy as it sounds, I love learning.
I’d gone from being this art student messing about with music to this girl with a record deal, magazine front covers and all this hype. In many ways, it was everything I ever wanted, but when it happened all I felt was total, paralysing fear.
Take the attitude of a student, never be too big to ask questions, never know too much to learn something new.
I voted for the Deficit Reduction Package with significant heartburn over the student aid provisions.
When writing about Edinburgh, I place my characters in the parts of the city that I myself have lived in, or else know well, those being the Southside, Marchmont in particular, where I lived as a student, and the New Town/Stockbridge area where I live now and have done for the past 30 years.
When I talk to kids, I’m really listening. When I do that, we have a little bit of a bigger connection than me being Kendrick Lamar and you being a student. It’s almost like we’re friends. Because a friend listens.
In January 1962, when I was the author of one and a half unperformed plays, I attended a student production of ‘The Birthday Party’ at the Victoria Rooms in Bristol. Just before it began, I realised that Harold Pinter was sitting in front of me.
You have to be a student of the game to be successful, and it’s promising when you can say that, with a world-record performance, I still have things to improve on!
A studio gangster dupes people into believing he’s a tough guy, but in reality he’s the former student body president and member of the National Honor Society. Once Vanilla Ice was fingered as a studio gangster, his career was over. Thank God.
If I’m out shopping, in Topshop or wherever, I’m never spotted. In fact, I’m usually asked if I have a student card. No-one seems to notice me, they’re oblivious to who I am even in Scotland, and I’m very happy to be able to blend in with the crowd.
I always felt different because I didn’t pick one specific clique or group to be a part of, and I didn’t choose one thing to be. I cheered, sang in chorus, was in student government, played in rock bands, went to dirt races in western PA… My interests have always been diverse.
I first heard the story of Agnes Magnusdottir when I was an exchange student in the north of Iceland.
I was a good student and stuff like that.
But for me, it is when a student has died. I find the death of a young person the most difficult and painful of times. To explain it to other young people, to see a bright future snuffed out, is just awful. I am haunted by those deaths.
I was a student of law as my grandmother wanted me to be a lawyer. But my passion has always been movies.
I was an average student, who took active interest in athletics.
Being a student of Wuxia literature, I was aware ‘Crouching Tiger’ was book four in the ‘Crane Iron Pentalogy.’
I’m less desperate now to express what’s inside me, that’s true – I act these days because it keeps me awake and interested, an eternal student.
Somehow I think it was declared very early on that I was the – if not the black sheep of the family, not a very good student.
Being a famous singer or an international singer – that’s my dream, too, but my main goal is to be a real student and be able to graduate and be a lawyer and have my own business.
I have a theory about that, if you have to say something, if you have encourage for one second a prospective acting student – he should not go in to acting.
Coaching is the great passion of my life, and the job to me has always been an opportunity to work with our student athletes and help them discover what they want.
My first direct encounter with the military was when I joined ROTC as a graduate student, although my father, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps, can trace the military service in our family all the way back to the Revolutionary War.
Our highly qualified teachers not only work hard, but they care about each and every student that enters their classroom. I thank you, Montana teachers, for your sense of duty and compassion to our precious future generation.
Well, I think every film student goes into film school thinking they want to write and direct their own movies, and they don’t realize how much goes into it, and what a process it is.
I feel like I am in turbo mode as a student of entertainment.
I was a good student. For a while, my parents did make me cope with school and films simultaneously. But after a point, this wasn’t practical. I had to choose between studies and films. I chose films.
I tried to steer the student newspaper toward more pertinent information instead of the usual gossip and bull.
I cannot say that I was a particularly diligent student, especially during the lower grades.
Pell grants are the foundation of Federal student aid. As someone who attended college with the help of Pell grants and as chairman of the Pell Grant Caucus, I know how important they are for our Nation’s low-income students.
Though Nathalie Dupree did not remember much about my presence in her class, it marked me forever. I remain her enthusiast, her evangelist, her acolyte, and her grateful student. She taught me that cooking and storytelling make the most delightful coconspirators.
I had just arrived in New York from California. I was nineteen years old and excited beyond belief. I was an art student and an acting student and behaved as most young actors did – meaning that there was no such thing as a good actor, ’cause you yourself hadn’t shown up yet.
Martin Scorsese was being given an honorary doctorate, and one of the tutors asked if there was a student film he particularly liked. He mentioned our film. There was a dinner after the final show just for the tutors, but I was smuggled in to meet Scorsese over dessert.
I had been a premed student, and the way you got through premed was to work extremely hard and then harder.
I think my mom and dad both wanted to get across to me that… I obviously grew up with great privilege and was very lucky and was able to afford college and not have student loans, and they would pay for college, but beyond that, it would be up to me to make a living.
I attribute my success to my mental approach to the game. I have always been a serious student of umpiring. I enjoy studying rules, situations, and positioning.
I was a great student. I was good at everything.
As an impoverished student I used to spend days out in Selfridges, nibbling on samples of free cheese and dousing myself with scent in the perfume department.
In regard to music, I just think that it’s always best to have an attitude of being a perpetual student and always look to learn something new about music, because there’s always something new to learn.
The history of American higher education over the twentieth century is an extraordinary one, the story of the creation of a powerhouse set of institutions that are the envy of the civilized world. Once they were the province, both among the student and faculty bodies, of children of privilege, generally WASPs.
I conveniently was not accepted to film school, which I applied to in 1987, and so I decided I would become a filmmaker instead of a student.
I still do all my developing and printing in my darkroom. Being in New York, you get tremendous exposure to great arts. In my student years, I saw exhibitions of August Sander and Diane Arbus. I still go back to their pictures. I don’t really go for contemporary photo shows.
I wish all high schools could offer students the outside activities that were available at the old Harrison High on Chicago’s West Side in the late ’20s. They enabled me to become part of a school newspaper, drama group, football team and student government.
I was a student at Peking University for close to a decade, while a so-called ‘knowledge explosion’ was rapidly expanding. I was searching for not just knowledge, but also to mold a temperament, to cultivate a scholarly outlook.
You got to become a student of the game. You got to learn the game before you can go out there and play fast.
If you say you want to automate cars and save people’s lives, the skills you need for that aren’t taught in any particular discipline. I know – I was interested in working on automating cars when I was a Ph.D. student in 1995.
History offers us vicarious experience. It allows the youngest student to possess the ground equally with his elders; without a knowledge of history to give him a context for present events, he is at the mercy of every social misdiagnosis handed to him.
I was perhaps the worst student you have ever seen. You know, I thought I was stupid, all my classmates thought I was stupid, so there was general agreement.
A student who has excelled in the classroom should have the opportunity to attend college and become a productive, taxpaying member of society.
It is insight into human nature that is the key to the communicator’s skill. For whereas the writer is concerned with what he puts into his writings, the communicator is concerned with what the reader gets out of it. He therefore becomes a student of how people read or listen.
I want to become a student. I want to read Chinese history and go on a dig.
I knew that as a pharmacy student I would obtain military deferment. As I was of Jewish origin, this meant that I would not have to serve in a forced labor unit of the Hungarian army.
If some student came up and wanted to know where to study painting, you’d want to suggest someplace, but there’s no place. I wouldn’t know where to send a student to study.
With 6 kids, I still pay off my student loans. I still pay my mortgage. I drive a used minivan. If you think I’m living high off the hog, I’ve got one paycheck.
I require every Taipei student to swim; if they can’t pass the test they won’t graduate. Why do I do that? Because I think that is very, very important integral part of their education.
I was not an anthropology student prior to the war. I took it up as part of a personal readjustment following some bewildering experiences as an infantryman and later as a prisoner of war in Dresden, Germany. The science of the Study of Man has been extremely satisfactory from that personal standpoint.
When I was a teen, I was never really into the captain of the football team or the student body president. The guys I liked were quirky and different: They listened to music I’d never heard of, never had lunch or gas money, and could always make you laugh.
One of the hidden benefits of me being a student manager at Kentucky was me having the responsibility of driving Rick Pitino to his motivational speaking engagements.
I came up with the term ‘mindfreak’ because I didn’t like the word ‘magician.’ I felt like I wanted to coin a term that would be basically the reaction to my art. It would be a mindfreak and so that’s why I came up with that. But, many people say I’m really a student of humanity and psychology.
I’ll be honest; I’m a student of fashion. I say that because I just wear what I feel. I’m not led by name brands and things like that.
I was an art student when I was a boy, and as an art student you don’t have to talk to anyone – you just have to paint really wonderful paintings. It’s very unlike being an actor, where you have to talk all the time.
If a student takes the whole series of my folklore courses including the graduate seminars, he or she should learn something about fieldwork, something about bibliography, something about how to carry out library research, and something about how to publish that research.
Colleges do not merely offer preparation for the future; they occupy four years of a student’s life, and an institution should do what it can to make these years absorbing and enjoyable.
I started at General Motors at 18 years old as a co-op student at the General Motors Institute, which is now Kettering.
It is not so important to be serious as it is to be serious about the important things. The monkey wears an expression of seriousness which would do credit to any college student, but the monkey is serious because he itches.
I think every student needs access to technology, and I think technology can be a hugely important vehicle to help level the playing field.
I’ve always maintained that I see myself as a student. There’s always something to learn and be challenged by and hopefully grow from.
‘Saw,’ in many ways, was like my student film. The first crappy student film you don’t really want people to see.
I was a good student with mathematical ability and interests. As such, I took the usual college preparatory program in high school for one looking to become an engineer: all the available courses in mathematics and science.
I love school. I was a great student.
I was a D student in high school and on the dean’s list in college.
A really interesting and happy time was when I first went to Florence as a student and studied Italian. I was living in a pensione on an allowance of £40 a month, which was princely. I did a lot of work and enjoyed myself immensely.
In 1765, Parliament passed the Stamp Act, which, as any American high school student can tell you, was an act that apparently had something to do with stamps.
I still picture myself as a student of the music. I’m always trying to learn new things. Music is just what makes me tick.
General Custer was a close observer and student of personal character.
Girls are more academically powerful. They make the grades, they run the student activities, they are the valedictorians.
I felt slightly superior to student politics, for instance. I had no reason to think this, but I thought of myself as slightly more seasoned. I became quite cynical talking to my student friends.
The first responsibility of the Muslim is as teacher. That is his job, to teach. His first school, his first classroom is within the household. His first student is himself. He masters himself and then he begins to convey the knowledge that he has acquired to the family. The people who are closest to him.
Voters care only that student loans remain freely available and that they cost taxpayers as little as possible.
I used to be a regular college student and now I go all over the country and stay at really nice hotels.
Being a former theater student, of course, there is a part of me that is fascinated with stage crafts and what you can do with illusions and working within the confines of the studio.
I am a student of the game.
A lot of student directors used to pick other students to be in their graduate films, so. I ended up doing a couple of them just for fun. Eventually, I got an agent through a friend and I did some commercials; then I got Knots Landing.
I am permanently a student of people who make great songs, but besides sort of learning by absorption, I just love listening to music, hearing what’s going on, hearing new things or new old things.
One of the wonderful things that I’ve always loved as an art student, what I always loved about comics, was that they are interpreted differently by different graphic artists all the time, so now film is doing that thanks to Marvel Studios.
For the last year I’ve been at Stanford University as a student and I’ve had time to read the newspaper.
Most of the debates I’ve participated in have been on Christian college campuses or on secular campuses; so, largely before a student audience.
So that the failures to pass a civil rights bill isn’t because of Black Power, isn’t because of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee; it’s not because of the rebellions that are occurring in the major cities.
When I was still a student, I came out of a performing arts high school, and the female students who were doing traditional dance and ballet were so beautiful. They were beautiful, starting from their postures.
Art history became an A-level option at my school the year I started sixth form. This happened because another student and I cajoled and bullied the head of the art department into arranging it with the examination board.
If there were no government-guaranteed student loans, college tuition would be much lower.
When I was in college, I was the editor of the literary magazine and insisted neither the editors nor the writers be specifically identified-only our student numbers appeared on the title page. I love that idea and still do.
If you’re last in your class at Harvard, it doesn’t feel like you’re a good student, even though you really are. It’s not smart for everyone to want to go to a great school.
I think I spent most of my childhood, and my early years as a performer, in student mode. And I think that’s OK – I mean, it led me to where I am.
Ending up-front fees should make it far easier for all students to go to university as they will no longer have to pay up to /1,125 out of their loans at the start of each year. Student loans will also rise to meet average living costs.
There are two methods for the literary study of any book – the first being the study of its thought and emotion; the second only that of its workmanship. A student of literature should study some of the Bible from both points of view.
Student teaching is the hardest job there is.
I flunked my exam for university two times before I was accepted by what was considered my city’s worst university, Hangzhou Teachers University. I was studying to be a high school English teacher. In my university, I was elected student chairman and later became chairman of the city’s Students Federation.
The Chinese Student Association at Cornell put together their own play. It was all Asian people in the cast except for me, because they wanted to do a couple of scenes about an interracial relationship. I was the only non-Asian person on stage; the entire audience was Asian apart from my 10 friends that showed up.
I think there are definitely two types of student: the academic kids and the 50% who fail. It’s very clear to see – it’s fact. We’re not doing enough for those who fail; they need a more physical, tactile approach, involving people skills, team-building, problem-solving, building things.
With every book, you go back to school. You become a student. You become an investigative reporter. You spend a little time learning what it’s like to live in someone else’s shoes.
Universities have to tame their budgets, especially for student amenities that have nothing to do with education.
When I was a college student and I got interested in linguistics the concern among students was, this is a lot of fun, but after we have done a structural analysis of every language in the world what’s left? It was assumed there were basically no puzzles.
I think I was a pretty normal student; I just followed most of my friends.
My wife Victoria Harwood was art director on ‘Far North,’ and she had designed my student film, ‘The Sheep Thief.’
More than ever, a college diploma unlocks economic opportunity, provides students with a wealth of new skills and knowledge, and encourages innovation and growth. But more than ever, it also comes with a mountain of student loan debt.
The higher the social class of other students the higher any given student’s achievement.
I used to be like a normal IIT student to be very honest. Then I joined the dramatics society there in IIT Kharagpur.
As a student, I had a hobby of inventing new ideas for products. For me, thinking of new businesses is like inventing new products.
I hated school, but I was a good student. I made straight A’s.
I just thought acting would be something to help out with my student loans, but my first year as an actress, I made more money than my parents. That’s when I realized it could turn into a career. After that, I put everything I had into it.
My mother came to see me in a play when I was a student, and afterwards, I asked her what she thought. She said, ‘Honest opinion? No.’
I didn’t do improv in college, I never performed, I didn’t do theater either. I was in student government, I was a history major.
I wasn’t the best student. I wasn’t stupid, but I wasn’t paying a lot of attention.
Student life taught me a lesson – never bow down your head. Be straightforward and bold in whatever you do.
Ever since studying in Russia as a college student, I had been in a long-distance, one-sided love affair with Chechnya’s remarkable history, culture and rugged natural beauty.
Don’t we realise that the student of today is the executive of tomorrow?
When West End Girls came out on import, I was a student at Liverpool University. I’d go to a club in Liverpool and it would come on, and I’d be really embarrassed.
I’ve studied documentarians extensively to come up with my own in-house style. I’m a student of Michael Moore’s films, of Eisenstein, Riefenstahl. Leave the politics aside, you have to learn from those past masters on how they were trying to communicate their ideas.
I see myself as more of a student, that I love to get down into the weeds of different problems and try to go through that. I don’t mind messaging, but I’m going to default back to the research side of things.
Class I to XII wasn’t much help; I was always a mediocre student. But when I pursued higher education and studied economics with theatre or psychology with science fiction, I got a whole new world view.
You might say those who can’t repay their student debts shouldn’t have borrowed in the first place. But they had no way of knowing just how bad the jobs market would become.
My most embarrassing moment was when I was a student at Tufts University and decided to go ‘streaking’ with a group of girls in the middle of January. Somehow I lost them and ended up being chased by the campus police.
Back in my days as a chemistry student, I used to be quite a technocrat. I was firmly convinced that scientists would have cornered God and photographed Him in color by 1951.
It’s actually really great to be a student and an actor, because I get to do this job that I love, then just when I think my head might explode, I get to go to school where they don’t really care about what magazine cover I’m on.
I wandered along to the chemistry labs, more or less on the rebound, and asked about becoming a research student. It was the ’60s, a time of university expansion: the doors were open, and a 2:1 was good enough to get me in.
Into the soul of every student I would have instilled the patriotic fervor of Patrick Henry.
When I was in high school, I was a bad kid and a good student.
For many years, I hated nature. As a student, I refused to put a plant anywhere – a living plant, that is. Dead plants were OK.
I was in the drama club, and I was one of seven co-presidents of the student body. Students elected me – I don’t know why!
I was a really good student. I was nerdy and ambitious. I was involved with every large theater production at my school.
I was a great student at a great school, Wharton School of Finance.
I am a student of cinema, and I love filmmaking of all kinds.
You have no choice as a professional chef: you have to repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat until it becomes part of yourself. I certainly don’t cook the same way I did 40 years ago, but the technique remains. And that’s what the student needs to learn: the technique.
I just want people to understand that regardless of what it is that you do – whether you’re a teacher, whether you are a doctor, a single mother, a college student, a big sister – that you have strength within you, and I want people to be inspired to walk in their own superhero regardless of what it is that they do.
When I was a student, I studied philosophy and religion. I talked about being patient. Some people say I was too hopeful, too optimistic, but you have to be optimistic just in keeping with the philosophy of non-violence.
I was lucky because on the morning after the burning of the Reichstag I left my home very early to catch a train to Berlin for the conference of our student organization and that is the only reason why I escaped arrest.
I was a directing student and a production design student at Carnegie Mellon. I went in as a production design student and became a directing student.
I had the opportunity to do a movie with Roger Daltrey of The Who. In the movie, I played a guitar student. Since I had to learn how to play somewhat for the movie, I was introduced to the guitar.
When I make a film, I am hoping to reinvent the genre a little bit. I just do it my way. I make my own little Quentin versions of them… I consider myself a student of cinema. It’s almost like I am going for my professorship in cinema, and the day I die is the day I graduate. It is a lifelong study.
Instead, California is one of only 10 states that provides in-state college and university tuition to illegal immigrants. That’s grossly unfair to a legal high school student who moves out of California for a year, then returns to attend college.
Student cartoonists as well as professionals should always be careful that they’re not doing a cartoon that already has been done.
When the time came for me to go to college, there was only one scholarship that my high school offered at the time and I didn’t win that one, but that didn’t stop me. I went on to college anyway. I worked my way through it and paid my student loans for 11 years.
I started out with the intention of studying physics. I was a terrible high school student outside of the fact that I did well in physics, but there’s a big difference between being good at physics and being a physicist, so I jettisoned that very quickly.
America is the student who defies the odds to become the first in a family to go to college – the citizen who defies the cynics and goes out there and votes – the young person who comes out of the shadows to demand the right to dream. That’s what America is about.
The most dangerous thing about student riots is that adults take them seriously.
When I was growing up in rural Alabama, it was impossible for me to register to vote. I didn’t become a registered voter until I moved to Tennessee, to Nashville, as a student.
A self-taught man usually has a poor teacher and a worse student.
I always feel like everything I shoot is a student project, and nobody else knows about it. I forget, in the moment, that other people will see it.
School was rough for me. I was a good student in middle school, but high school wasn’t so fun. I still pulled through, though! I excelled in art, fashion, history and English literature – anything creative. Math and science I struggled a bit more in.
I wasn’t a very good student. I prefer to learn by experience.
Writing was not a childhood dream of mine. I do not recall longing to write as a student. I wasn’t sure how to start.
I was a very good student. But I didn’t have the latitude to study more. I was never allowed to do anything cross-disciplinary. Why can’t an engineering student learn physics?
For-profit higher education is today a booming industry, feeding on the student loans handed out to the desperate.
We had rising student achievement across the board because high standards, robust accountability, ending social promotion in third grade, real school choice across the board, challenging the teachers union and beating them is the way to go.
Every time a student walks past a really urgent, expressive piece of architecture that belongs to his college, it can help reassure him that he does have that mind, does have that soul.
Edgar Allan Poe, an earlier UVA student, once complained in a letter that his stepfather spoke to him as if Poe were one of the black slaves; some of the students at UVA surely felt the same about being told what to do by faculty.
Harvard has played an important role in my life. I was a student, Class of 1936, and I’ve been on the board of overseers. My experiences there shaped who I am.
I consider myself a perpetual student. You seek and learn every day: from an experiment in the lab, from reading a scientific journal, from taking care of a patient. Because of this, I rarely get bored.
I was a good student when I was a kid, and I did everything I was supposed to do, and I got A’s.
School district policies and practices have not kept pace with student and teacher needs.
I went to New York in 1974, to either try to get a record deal, get into the New York Art Student League, or be a dancer. So that was my plan. Some plan. And I had no money.
My son Barry, of course, has been on from the beginning. And his son Shane is playing now a med student regularly on the show. And at one point or another, I’ve had all four of his kids on the show.
I would get my student loans, get money, register and never really go. It was a system I thought would somehow pan out.
In school, I wasn’t a very good student – I was very irresponsible and never did the studying but always liked to get the laugh.
I came to Ireland 20 years ago as a student, hitch-hiking round for a week and staying in Dublin.
At culinary school, none of the things we use to define ourselves outside that world – actor, producer, student – none of that matters. It’s a magical art form.
I’m a constant learner. You need to be a constant student because things change and you have to change and grow. And I emphasize the word ‘grow.’
Sometimes I feel I can’t quite master my written and spoken Spanish, because I’m too much a student of English. I would need another lifetime to learn it.
No student of Chinese history can say that the Chinese are incapable of religious experience, even when judged by the standards of medieval Europe or pious India.
I came into Chicago in winter – I’d never been so cold in my life! I was very homesick, and a poor student at that time. America seemed so different and so filled with amazing things – and almost all of them were out of my reach.
I’m a student of comedy in general, so I’ve always loved Billy Crystal. But I’m a different type of showman. I’m a clown and a jester.
Who was Amanda Knox? Was she a fresh-faced honor student from Seattle who met anyone’s definition of an all-American girl – attractive, athletic, smart, hard-working, adventuresome, in love with languages and travel? Or was her pretty face a mask, a duplicitous cover for a depraved soul?
My daughter loves romances. She’s a Ph.D student at George Washington University, and when my first book without a clinch cover came out, she said to me: ‘Finally, a book I can read on the Metro.’
I realized what interested me as a student of film was one thing and the movies that I liked were another.
American secretaries of state have typically been more buttoned up than bon vivant, but John Quincy Adams’s diplomatic successes – bigger than anything presidential or legislative that he achieved – still surprise a student of his personality.
Pride adversely affects all our relationships – our relationship with God and His servants, between husband and wife, parent and child, employer and employee, teacher and student, and all mankind.
We need to reward the ‘thankless job’ of substitute teaching with better pay and chances for permanent positions. I look forward to the day when no student comes home saying, ‘I didn’t learn much today… we had a sub.’
Punk rock and skateboarding took the ‘school’ out of living your life, and I related to learning as I went, doing a lot of different things that I liked, when I liked. Consequently, I’m mediocre at all of the above, but still stoked on being a lifetime student of music, skating, painting, writing, etc.
Going to school on a campus where the faculty overwhelmingly disagrees with you, and where the student body overwhelmingly disagrees with you, is challenging. If you go in without a firm foundation, it can undermine what you believe.
As a teenager and a student, I totally cast away the Christian faith. I just believed it was stupid, and only stupid people could believe it. I actually became an anti-Christian, and very antagonistic.
Part of Obamacare eliminated the private sector financial market that engages in giving college student loans. I mean, now the federal government has taken over college student loans, so I sit back and strategically look at this and say this just cannot be happening.
When SoFi launched in 2011, it focused squarely on the burgeoning student loan market – a market that, unlike housing, had no viable option to refinance both federal and private student loans from higher interest-rate eras.
When I was an impoverished graduate student, I would sometimes spend $20 or $30 on a T-shirt or accessory I didn’t need or even particularly want. What I craved was the purchase, not the thing itself. Of course, a sense of not being deprived may fill an emotional void without ruinous consequences.
I am a student of evolution and adaptation.
In the years that I worked in museums, first as a summer student and eventually as a curator, one of the primary lessons I learned was this: History is shaped by the people who seek to preserve it. We, of the present, decide what to keep, what to put on display, what to put into storage, and what to discard.
‘Saw’ really was like a student film for me; we expected it to go straight to video. I never expected anyone to see that film, and then it becomes one of the most successful horror franchises.
The results showed that Joe Mokoena and I had made history. For the first time in the history of education in South Africa, two African students had passed the JC with a First Class degree, regarded as a rare achievement for any student.
When I was a graduate student, I actually took a course in development economics and I thought it was the most boring thing in the world.
I did loads of student films and fringe theatre. I worked for free a lot.
Medical knowledge and technical savvy are biodegradable. The sort of medicine that was practiced in Boston or New York or Atlanta fifty years ago would be as strange to a medical student or intern today as the ceremonial dance of a !Kung San tribe would seem to a rock festival audience in Hackensack.
When I was 14 years old, I went on location to film ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ for five months, and my high school was not happy. My job meant an increased workload for teachers, and they were not equipped to handle a ‘non-traditional’ student. So, during filming, they kicked me out.
The day I think I’ve achieved everything will be the day I fail. There is no end to learning, and I want to continue being a student.
Why should every single character be an honor student who goes around helping others and never doing anything wrong? Is that like the rule or something?
I was a rebellious student, called up in assembly almost every week for some misdemeanour, lots of time on the Headmistress’s office for what must have been, in retrospect, annoying behaviour.
I tried out for another show while I was in college so I could pay off my student loans, and it sort of led to The Real World. The same people that were casting that show were casting The Real World, so they asked me to do it.
Talent has no gender. People are hiring young male directors right out of film school, off of a student film or off of a film at Sundance for millions of dollars. You can do the same with a female. It’s not a risk about the work if you respect the film that they made.
Let’s say a Soviet exchange student back in the ’70s would go back and tell the KGB about people and places and things that he’d seen and done and been involved with. This is not really espionage; there’s no betrayal of trust.
I like the relationship between the master and the student. Each piece has new problems, and each is different. They’re all an indentured servitude. There’s that subjugation that you have to put yourself under. It’s a give and take. There is work involved, and during that time, the greatest things are revealed.
When nearly a third of our high school students do not graduate on time with their peers, we have work to do. We must design our middle and high schools so that no student gets lost in the crowd and disconnected from his or her own potential.
I was a good student, but a speech impediment was causing problems. One of my teachers decided that I couldn’t pronounce certain words at all. She thought that if I wrote something, I would use words I could pronounce. I began writing little poems. I began to write short stories, too.
Enacted under President George W. Bush’s administration with the promise to focus on individual student achievement and overall school performance, No Child Left Behind was heralded as groundbreaking. And in some ways, it was.
I’m a serious student of music, a perfectionist in the studio, and I take the arrangement and production of it very seriously, down to the mixing and mastering even. But at the same time I’m having so much fun with it. I try not to take myself so seriously.
The most important loan to pay is your student loan. It’s more important than your mortgage, car and credit card payments. You cannot discharge student loan debt in the majority of cases.
When I’m not in front of the camera, I’m just like any other normal person. I’m a student. I eat when I’m stressed.
Leadership does take work. And it should. If you aspire to be a leader, you ought to treat leadership as a craft, you ought to become a student of it, and you ought to work at it. And if you’re not willing to work at it, well, you get what you give.
As a college student, I worked as a mentor, and that got me involved in working with young people long before I became a foster parent.
Advancements in technology have become so commonplace that sometimes we forget to stop and think about how incredible it is that a girl on her laptop in Texas can see photos and cell phone video in real time that a young college student has posted of a rally he’s at in Iran.
I wasn’t always interested in technology. I had been a student for a long time – I’d earned a bachelor’s degree, a law degree, and an MBA – and decided that I wanted to work in a large corporation, focusing on finance and law, in either New York or Chicago.
I was a student in Germany when Hitler came to power.
I was a terrible student. Still, I managed to get into college, but my daydreaming threatened to sabotage me. I used behavior modification to break the cycle. I started by setting an arbitrary time limit on studying: for every 15 minutes of study, I’d allow myself an hour of daydreaming. I set the alarm.
To the stern student of affairs, Beirut is a phenomenon, beguiling perhaps, but quite, quite impossible.
Liberty University will not lend its name or financial support to any student group that advances causes contrary to its mission.
I have always been interested in politics. I was in the student union before, very active.
Our bombs are smarter than the average high school student. At least they can find Kuwait.
I was not the best student. Thank God I had a lot of hockey talent.
In 1982, fellow film student Amanda Richardson and I went to Greenham Common for the day – to see what was going on and to shoot some video. The day turned into a weekend, the weekend into seven months, and the dozens of hours of footage turned into a film – ‘Carry Greenham Home.’
There’s more student debt than credit card debt! Everywhere I go, I run into young people trying to build careers while they keep shelling out money on their education loans. If the economy is looking for a new generation of home-buyers, I can’t imagine they’ll get it from these folks.
Become a student of change. It is the only thing that will remain constant.
Growing up, I had always been an avid bookworm and a straight-A student. I approached my cancer the same way I approached writing my senior thesis in college: I buried my head in research journals, interviewed experts and scoured the Internet for information.
No student ever attains very eminent success by simply doing what is required of him: it is the amount and excellence of what is over and above the required, that determines the greatness of ultimate distinction.
I went to music school, and I guess I was a difficult, know-it-all type of student.
In February 1991, I was rushed to the hospital in Los Angeles to have my feet amputated. Three years earlier, I had broken the national 100 meters hurdles record while a student at UCLA and was a favourite for the event at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.
When Facebook first started, and it was just a social directory for undergrads at Harvard, it would have seemed like such a bad startup idea, like some student side project.
I was a disinterested student.
I don’t come from a family that had the money to put me through college, so I left school with $100,000 in student loan debt.
I wasn’t a good student in high school. I mean, I got through it, but unless it had something to do with music, it didn’t really interest me.
My first student film was Orientation, which was basically the set-up for Animal House. There are a couple of scenes that we later borrowed in some form.
Interest in business ethics courses has surged, and student activities at leading business schools are more focused than ever before on making business serve long-term social values.
I was rather a poor student, too easily distracted – did a lot of gazing out of windows, fine for training to be a writer, but not a great way to achieve in the classroom. The truth is that I was happy to bumble along and do enough to avoid detention, but not much more.
I think any student of military strategy would tell you that in order to attack a position, you should have a ratio of approximately 3 to 1 in favor of the attacker.
What is the student but a lover courting a fickle mistress who ever eludes his grasp?
The Black Panthers was what we would call today a criminal gang that was formed by Huey Newton. Now, interestingly enough, I knew Huey Newton before he formed the Black Panthers. He was a student of mine when I was a teacher, instructor at Oakland City College back in the very early 1960s.
Kathy Dewar, my high-school English teacher, introduced me to journalism. From the moment I wrote my first article for the student paper, I convinced myself that having my name in print – writing in English, interviewing Americans – validated my presence here.
I was an excellent student before I left school. But I graduated early so that I could work longer hours on ‘90210.’
‘Breathe In’ was such a big deal for me. It was my first anything. Before that, I was going through ‘Backstage Magazine’ and applying for student films.
I was a horrible student.
I’m a student of Eric Church, and I say that a lot… I was drawn to it because of the honesty and because it’s got rough edges on it. He doesn’t shy away from anything, and that’s the way I wanted to be.
Every student has something to offer, and every student deserves a nurturing learning environment.
Many writers can’t make a living. So to be able to teach how to write is valuable to them. But I don’t really know about its value to the student. I don’t mean it’s useless. But I wouldn’t have wanted anyone to teach me how to write.
The vast majority of students probably emerge from college with an adequate grasp of no more than a single method of inquiry. Even this capacity may erode over time if it does not relate to experiences and problems that recur in the student’s later life.
Even reading my first bad review was an awesome experience. It was cool because you make something and not everybody’s going to like it. I felt like that kind of grew me up a little bit into a professional. I was a student filmmaker, and no one writes reviews about student films.
Being a student of hip-hop in general, you take technical aspects from places. You may take a rhyme pattern or flow from Big Daddy Kane or Kool G Rap.
One thing that improved my cooking skills was being a poor student in California… If you don’t have much money, you have to learn to cook.
I knew how to sell. I felt confident I could run a business. I was willing to outwork anyone. I wasn’t afraid to live like a student on next to nothing. So that meant I had absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain.
When you visit a foreign city you are in it, but not of it, separated by a glass wall. Once, while a student, I was getting dressed in my ground-floor room when a family of Italians crossed the grass to watch, as if I were laid on for their amusement and instruction.
I don’t like apartments – the idea of other people living, copulating and defecating above me – they make me feel as trapped as a slice of ham in a sandwich. When I was a student in Paris, I always rented attics right at the top of buildings, and as soon as I was making enough money, I bought houses.
All the jobs I’ve gotten in the last two years are because directors have seen the work I’ve done – indie films, plays, short student films, TV – since I moved to the states in 1996. I mean, I have an entire career in Canada that nobody has seen.
My mother was a Bible student, and when I was a youngster, both my mother and father would say, ‘If people would only live by the Golden Rule, there wouldn’t be the problems that there are.’ In other words, ‘treat people the way you want to be treated.’ If somebody mistreats you, two wrongs won’t make a right.
I’m a dad, I’m a husband, I’m an activist, I’m a writer and I’m just a student of the world.
The student community of Presidency College was also politically most active.
You’re a constant student, as a musician.
In reality, student loan forgiveness is welfare for the rich: a federal mandate that people who will make less money on average over the course of their lives bail out people who will make more money on average over the course of their lives.
I was a student at Kent State University in May of 1970. I was also a musician in a regionally popular band called the James Gang. I was still going to class and stuff, but I was in and out because we were playing a lot.
Although I don’t come from a musical background, I was given piano lessons along with my sisters, but I wasn’t what you would call a good student. I tended to write songs rather than do scales.
The year in school of a student is another factor that affects how an instructor interacts with his or her class.
I often imagine that the longer he studies English literature the more the Japanese student must be astonished at the extraordinary predominance given to the passion of love both in fiction and in poetry.
I don’t think I’m in any position to call myself a martial artist. I’m a student of the martial arts.
I’m here not just as an actress but as a woman, an African-American, a granddaughter of Ellis Island immigrants, a person who could not have afforded college without the help of student loans and as one of millions of volunteers working to re-elect President Obama!
I’m still a novice student.
I wasn’t a very good student in elementary school and had a hard time with reading and writing.
I was a very studious student and usually got A’s. I did not like school, because I wasn’t popular – I was a nerd.
Certainly, every student and school ought to have standards and evaluation, but who sets those standards, and who writes the test? Whoever controls the test controls the school.
As another has well said, to handicap a student by teaching him that his black face is a curse and that his struggle to change his condition is hopeless is the worst sort of lynching.
Lucio Tan Group has had an historic interest in education. From my days as a struggling working student, I knew that education is the key to escape from the clutches of poverty.
I graduated from Jones College, man, in Jacksonville, Florida, baby! I couldn’t get in anywhere else, man. I was the worst student ever. I couldn’t get in anywhere else. My father insisted I go to college, so I graduated, made the dean’s list and everything.
I consider descending chromatic lines and arpeggiated chords basic skills learned by any student of the guitar.
I went to school like any other regular student till Class VIII, and my favourite subject was math. From Class IX, things got a little difficult to manage. I was inclined towards studies, but then I also had to give time to badminton.
Excitement in education and student productivity, the ability to get a result that you want from students, go together and cannot be separated.
What is a diary as a rule? A document useful to the person who keeps it. Dull to the contemporary who reads it and invaluable to the student, centuries afterwards, who treasures it.
I wanted to be a teacher, but I was a lousy student, one of the slowest readers. It was a tremendous struggle. But I’m lucky I had some teachers who saw something in me.
As long as I keep it real, I learn something from everyone. And when you view yourself as a student and not as somebody who’s bigger, there is still learning that can be done every day, and that keeps you open-minded and more ready to learn about life and love.
While still a young student at film school, I was lucky enough to get a golden ticket to a Martin Scorsese master class at BAFTA in Piccadilly: fancy, but technically still ‘the flicks’.
In 1989, a lone and still-anonymous Chinese student stood unarmed in front of a Chinese tank and gave the world an enduring image of the determination of China’s young to change their nation. He didn’t text message the tank or share a video on YouTube.
I was a terrible English student.
When I was a student at Princeton University, I was working part time in a grocery store. I saw an ad for teachers of a prep course. I don’t remember what it paid, but it was easily double or triple the minimum wage.
A lot of Ivy League schools have presidents who are very politically active. And I don’t think it has an impact on whether a student chooses a school or a donor gives to a school.
During my first year as a graduate student, we worked on a measurement of the isotope shift and hyperfine structure of mercury isotopes.
I was a fantastic student until ten, and then my mind began to wander.
As a graduate student I studied mathematics fairly broadly, and I was fortunate enough, besides developing the idea which led to ‘Non-Cooperative Games,’ also to make a nice discovery relating to manifolds and real algebraic varieties.
The last state to admit a black student to the college level was South Carolina.
I think a lot of teachers feel like they’re teaching to a test. Our response is you teach to a student, you really teach to the kid.
I spent eighteen months as a graduate student in physics at Columbia University, waiting unhappily for an opportunity to work in a laboratory and wondering if I should continue in physics.
Negativity sells. I have been labelled a rebel. If I had been one, would I have got married at 23? Would I have been a straight A student?
I was a decent student but not a great student.
No teacher ever skipped the student process… if you want to be a leader, you have to be a follower first.
The day is past when schools could afford to give sufficient time and attention to the teaching of the ancient languages to enable the student to get that enjoyment out of classical literature that made the lives of our grandfathers so rich.
When ’36 Chowringhee Lane’ was released in 1981, I was a student of the Film and Television Institute of Tamil Nadu. Everyone who had seen the film was very impressed with its flawless direction and acting. But we, cinematography students, were stunned by the visual style, which was truly international.
Where is instruction in relationships, in the management of career, in the raising of children, in the pursuit of friendship, in the wise approach to anxiety and death? All this sort of stuff I craved to learn about when I was a student and down to this day.
The nice thing about student drama is that you’re allowed to get things wrong, because it doesn’t mean no one will ever hire you again.
I just want to go to university and have fun – I want to be an ordinary student. I’m only going to university. It’s not like I’m getting married – though that’s what it feels like sometimes.
I treated as few patients as I could as a medical student, and I never practiced medicine.
My father is a college professor and that’s about the extent of my college experience. I’m sort of a professional student forever. I think just as human beings we always have a student who is alive in us and is waiting to pop up and make us feel like we are 16 years-old again.
I met Hilary Vaughan at a Student Ball in 1944 and we married in the summer of 1946, as soon as I graduated.
We know what the birth of a revolution looks like: A student stands before a tank. A fruit seller sets himself on fire. A line of monks link arms in a human chain. Crowds surge, soldiers fire, gusts of rage pull down the monuments of tyrants, and maybe, sometimes, justice rises from the flames.
I used to be a reasonably good student.
I was an ordinary student at school and, at the same time, an actor. But I was not the popular kid, which helped me to play Peter Parker better.
I had no choice but to work hard. I was a straight-A student, went to college, and I loved business. I never thought I was going to be a singer myself.
To be completely honest, I think if I hadn’t been bullied into the band, I would have been happier as an art student. I would have been happier in a Brian Eno world.
The idea that computers can ever replace teachers and schools reveals a deep lack of understanding about the role leadership plays in student success.
Remembering who I am is a really active task for me. And I often have to tell myself, ‘You’re a graduate student,’ ‘You’re a daughter,’ et cetera, in situations where I’m supposed to behave like one.
I spent some time at White Memorial Medical Center as a senior medical student doing a rotation in surgery; however, I felt I wasn’t getting enough time assisting.
I was a first-generation college student as well as the first in our family to be born in America – my parents were born in Cuba – and we didn’t yet know that families were supposed to leave pretty much right after they unloaded your stuff from the car.
I was not an outstanding student. I did a reasonable amount of work. I got generally good – pretty good grades, but I was not that passionate about getting straight A’s.
I’d like to be a student in Rabindranath Tagore’s school in Santiniketan in around 1915, dancing in the dance-dramas he wrote.
For a true artist, life is a real academy. I am always both a student and a teacher. I have been teaching art to children since the age of eight. Now I am a co-founder of Akiane Arts School at Foreli Academy, where we are now enrolling students.
I’m a student of patterns. At heart, I’m a physicist. I look at everything in my life as trying to find the single equation, the theory of everything.
I’m a student. I want to do better, and I want directors who can find the actress in me and be my teachers. I’m interested in the whole process of editing, post-production and direction.
My freshman year, I ran for student class president and lost. The next year, I ran for student class vice president, and I won.
You can’t be a professor without having been a student. You can’t be a consultant without having been a research associate. So, if you outsource the least sophisticated jobs, at some stage, the next step of the ladder has to follow.
I can always see what I’ve done wrong. I’m always learning. I’m the perennial student.
I love being a student, if I could, I’d stay in school forever.
In 2007, a very inspired New York University Ph.D. student counted all the models on the runway, every single one that was hired, and of the 677 models that were hired, only 27, or less than four per cent, were non-white.
I do not care to put out any ideas for pictures. They are too valuable and can be appropriated by any art student, defrauding me out of a possible picture.
‘We Will Rock You’ is one of my favorite shows. I first saw it when I was a student at the Royal Academy and loved it.
I’ve never bought this idea of taking a therapeutic distance. If I see a student or house staff cry, I take great faith in that. That’s a great person; they’re going to be a great doctor.
I met Milos in 1967. I was working on a student film. And there is Milos Forman. So that’s how I met Milos.
During Vietnam, I was in college, enjoying my student deferment. The government wisely felt that, in my case, military service was less important than completing my studies to prepare me for my chosen career: comedian.
Suppose you want to be a great archeologist, and you join a successful archeologist as a student assistant, and he tells you where to dig. You dig up a marvelous discovery. Now I ask you, who should get the credit: the director or the digger?
