For this writing scenario, you have been asked to write a short essay with sources on an issue important to college students in the 21st century.
You will submit this essay to a student journal that is publishing a special issue on topics important to modern college students. You may choose to write about issues of costs and financial aid, balancing work/school/family, access to technology, or another issue you feel is important. The topic is up to you, as long as it fits the scope of the special issue of the journal. You notice the journal usually publishes short student essays, with a few sources.
Your task is to write a short essay, 750—850 words, on the topic above. Your essay should include at least two outside sources, which should be cited according to APA guidelines. You will draft your essay during Week 9 for a Week 10 peer review and will submit your final draft at the end of Week 10.
