In a frightening example of how competitive the job market is for young people right now, a McDonald’s outpost in Winchedon, Massachusetts, has just posted a call-out for a full time cashier – but insists only college graduates need apply.

And even they must have 1-2 years of cashier experience before they’ll be trusted with the Big-Mac-selling responsibility, according to the advert.

Holiday

It’s the start of the holiday season, which in Miami means decorating the palm tree with red twinkle lights and hoping it gets cool enough to wear your reindeer sweater for just one night.
While the rest of the year is basking in the chill of an early snowstorm, we’re still wearing shorts and a T-shirt. Bummer!

McDonald’s understands our frustration with endless beach days and wants to do something about it — like bring winter to us.
The fast food giant is holding a Winter Wonderland contest. The most festive snow-free city in the United States will receive a winter wonderland complete with snow, snowmen, seasonal giveaways, and lots of warm white chocolate mochas for everyone!

South Florida isn’t the only place lacking in the permafrost department. Other cities in the running include San Diego, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Dallas, Austin, Houston, New Orleans, Tampa, and Atlanta.

But we, of course, need to win this. After all, a Winter Wonderland scenario is payback for all the times we’ve hosted frozen masses of New Yorkers in search of a little sunshine and pina coladas. Plus, we’re kind of over the dioramas at Santa’s Enchanted Forest.

To help Miami win, tag McDonald’s South Florida Twitter page @McD_SouthFla, using hashtag #MomentsofWonder.

What Tallahassee’s beautification means

In my most recent article, I began to discuss the deterioration of student living around FSU’s campus. With the rise in popularity–and what would appear to be a sudden shift in socioeconomic climate conducive for–“luxury” student living, many working-class students find their options limited. They’re forced into less than safe or comfortable complexes and neighborhoods and find their peace of mind compromised.

There seems to be a massive beautification of Tallahassee underway. New, high-rent and high-security apartment complexes are popping up out of nowhere. We’re bull-dozing to make space for more money, and the obvious exploitation of students who are just trying to walk safely from their cars to their front doors at night. They want the college experience, and a basic sense of security. Unfortunately, this is coming at a much higher price, as more and more students are speaking volumes with their dollars. They’re saying, “I will pay a single-family home mortgage for one bedroom in a place the TPD will actually go to.”

Is this the real “college experience?” This motif of luxury doesn’t stop with our living spaces, but also where we go when we want to have a night out.

Tallahassee, Florida has long been the definition of a college town. It’s what drew me in. I’d visited campus a number of times before I transferred and was taken by the abundance of beautiful women and impossibly cheap drinks. This city is as cheap and easy as the cover for our flagship bars and clubs. We affectionately refer to our city as Tallanasty, and have never made any attempts to pretend to be anything we aren’t.

My first introduction to this city was through the ever tasteless Tallahassee Strip. My friends boasted it’s griminess as if we had inherited some fort of gold mine of shamlessness and underage drinking. Our parents would have been mortified. We went to what used to be Big Daddy’s and I slammed lemon drops like they were only bit of drink in a desert I’d been roaming for days.

We stumbled back to Bryan Hall, where I’d been staying, and I felt as though I’d tapped into some underground society where it was understood that we shouldn’t post those pictures on Facebook. I was nineteen, and to me, that was heaven. I feel in love with this city. I wanted a genuine college experience, so I transferred the very second FSU accepted me.

The infamous e-coli outbreak of 2011 put the strip out of commission for a while, but they’re back in business and just as live as ever. However, there’s a new girl in town and rumor has it, she’s got expensive taste. FSU College Town is a “mixed-use entertainment and residential district” where you can toss financial responsibility and bags of money into the wind, as you can both live and breathe the entitlement that comes with the price tag.

The rent is so outrageous that you can’t even find the rates on their website. Being that today is my day off of work, I have no better way to spend my time than do to a little research. You can be the proud liver in a one-bedroom, 583 square foot apartment for the low, low price of ,200 per month. Which would take you just a smidge over the 2 average monthly mortgage of a 2,000+ square foot home here in sunny Florida.

If you’ve got a wealthy, dead grandparent, this is totally up your alley. Grab your nicest yacht jacket and head over to College Town. Think of all of the money you’ll save on cab rides after you spend an average of a drink at the Madison Social, just a few belligerent waddles away from your super-elite pad on the Doak side of campus.

This is not the college experience. Madison Square does not pander to an authentic college experience any more than Big Daddy’s re-enforced liquor laws. Madison Square is tailored to fit the contours of the wallets of a select group of privileged FSU students’ parents. To market this as such is presumptuous, elitist, and simply out of character for the Tallatrashy I fell in love with years ago.

I learned a lot from this city. One of the biggest lessons was how to survive on almost nothing, and rely on myself. I lived with people who had to do the same, and we helped each other out when we could. We worked, we partied, we didn’t take it for granted. I hope that FSU, and the city of Tallahassee, will let others do the same, and send them off with a genuine college experience. We should graduate as not just educated people, but people who understand the value of working hard for what they want.

Rewind six years: Students were excited to be teachers. They saw opportunity, and flowed into Florida State University’s College of Education. This prosperous time in teacher training didn’t last long, but history may be repeating itself soon.

Between 2007 and 2009 attendance in the educational training programs at FSU was high. Students were interested in becoming educators, and the department was reaping in the benefits.

After 2009, the recession hit, and the number of students awarded education degrees at FSU went from 1,028 to 677 as of last year. The whole state suffered from this dramatic drop, including FSU.

“Across the board in the state, that a lot of programs in education were either cut of suspended. We cut our physical education programs at FSU, for example, and we had some programs suspended,” said Amy Guerette, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs for FSU’s College of Education.

As Guerrette puts it, the department is now “holding their breath,” as the program begins to recover by making an active effort to recruit new students.

“We’re hoping to see the numbers go back up to what they were in 2008, 2009, because we know that our state does need teachers, so we’re trying to do our best to make sure students are aware of our program that we have,” Guerette said.

Guerrette and the rest of the department may be able to finally let out a sigh of relief. According to an article by NPR published Nov. 20, due to the fact that many middle-class jobs fail to exist any longer, more students will turn to teaching.

The piece goes on to explain that this incoming wave of students will call for higher university standards to be risen, such as GPA and SAT scores. Though this may be logical enough, Guerette can’t confirm it.

“This is all based on an assumption that all students would be coming to a college of education. We just don’t have anything to support that. We don’t know why students come to the program; if it is in fact from economic times,” Guerette said.

Though Guerette can’t confirm that the requirements for students interested in FSU’s education program will be raised because of the economy, she can ensure that they will be raised by CAPE legislation of Florida.

CAPE give universities, like FSU, the minimum requirements they must set in order to be an accredited program. As of now, CAPE’s minimum GPA for future educators is 2.5. By 2015-2016 this will be raised to 3.0.

The reasons for this increase may or may not have any correlation to economic factors. Guerette gave the reason she knows of for certain:

“Higher quality teachers is what it comes down to,” Guerette said. “They’re wanting to make sure, especially in our undergraduate programs, using the GPA as a measure of how well have students done in their liberal studies, for example.”

Legislation designs it’s restrictions to be ensure that future educators are well rounded in liberal studies, math, science and literacy. By raising minimum GPA, is it a sure way to know that more able students will be in training programs.

The minimum GPA for this field may currently be 2.5, but Guerette says this is far below the GPA of students currently accepted to FSU’s college of education.

“Right now, for students admitted in 2011, 2012 our average GPA was a 3.45, so we are well above the state minimum for students who are coming into our college,” Guerette said.

Some programs within the college of education are particularly exclusive, allowing only 30 students in per semester. Therefore, the department only accepts the highest GPAs for this training program.

The reasons why legislation will be raising the minimum GPA for students admitted to educational colleges are debatable. It is likely it is due to the economy, but by 2015 or 2016, FSU will be perhaps be churning out more high quality teachers than ever before.
