Upward economic mobility is difficult to attain in this country. You implicitly know this; that’s why you’ve come to college. But just being in college isn’t enough. Using various concepts and drawing on a wide range of readings we’ve talked about in class, including strength of weak ties, the importance of peers, and cultural and social capital, you will write an essay outlining ways to get ahead in college and beyond. How can you increase your chances of getting better grades? Of graduating? Of getting a better job and improving your career mobility opportunities beyond that?
