Greek Myths

Literature is a very broad topic for study. The reason is that different countries have their own literature and famous authors of a certain genre. Literature reflects the culture of a country and people. It was a way to show us what they look like and what kind of people they are. One of the examples of literature reflecting the country is Greek myths written by people in Greece. They are widely known for their famous list of Greek myths and stories written by poets and authors. Even now, people still love to read Greek myths and legends, such as Icarus.

Daedalus fashioned two pairs of wings from wax and feathers for himself and his son. Daedalus was the first to try his wings, but before attempting to escape the island, he warned his son not to fly too close to the sun and not too close to the sea. Overcoming the dizziness caused by the flight, Icarus took off into the sky, but at the same time came too close to the sun, which because of the heat melted the wax. Icarus continued to flap his wings, but soon realized that he had no feathers left and that he only waves his bare hands, and so Icarus fell into the sea and drowned in the area that bears his name today, the Ikarian Sea near Ikaria, an island southwest of Samos.

There was a list of Greek myths from various authors and poets. Some of these myths were very famous. Although there were some that were not widely read by people. Greek authors have created a family tree of some gods who are also associated with humans. The gods even have children from humans who were called demigods. Just like Perseus, Achilles, Aeneas, Helen and many others. Each demigod also has their own stories, including about people who were part of their path. The gods have their own stories too. Some of them were about their successes during the war, as well as about the people who dedicated them. However, Zeus was a very famous god because he had so many different stories even during his unknown birth until he became the God of all gods. Reading the list of Greek myths can be very interesting and very fun.

When we speak of Greek myths, we easily associate it with the bravery of the people in Greece and how devoted they were to the gods. Although perhaps something has changed from the past, their famous stories and myths are still widely read by people. Centuries ago, these books were considered simple literary works of art, but now they are considered one of the most priceless literary works of art, written by various Greek authors.

With the costs of higher education at an all-time high, the American Dream of a college education can seem like just that — a dream.
However the reality is that there are lots of things a prospective student can do to help offset the high costs of higher education.
If you’re trying to figure out how to go to college for free, we have some advice that might help you on your way.
We’ve covered a wide range of options from how to get free tuition through a grant to various service opportunities.
Take a look at these and other ways you might be able to score a free college education.

8 ways to attend college for free

1. Grants and scholarships
Financial aid — the traditional way of eliminating college costs — is still available. To increase the odds of landing grants and scholarships, Doug Hewitt, co-author of “Free College Resource Book,” advises students to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, and then focus on local prizes.

“There are more scholarships you’ll qualify for in your home state than nationally,” says Hewitt. “Look at local organizations and talk to your high school (guidance) counselor.”

And remember to start your search early. You won’t be the only person wondering how to go to college for free and scholarships can be limited to a first come, first served basis. You should also keep in mind that you don’t need to wait for your senior year to start hunting for scholarships. There are grants and awards available at all high school grade levels.

2. Give service to your country
The U.S. Coast Guard, Air Force, Military (West Point), Merchant Marine and Naval academies offer free college opportunities to students who serve after college, but cash is also available through ROTC programs closer to home.

Service requirements for ROTC programs vary, but all require students to complete military training on campus and commit to up to 12 years, depending on the branch of service. Students leave with training, a guaranteed job and opportunities for more free education.

AmeriCorps, a national service organization that offers education awards in exchange for community work, provides an award of up to $5,730 for each full year of service. Maximum years of service vary among AmeriCorps programs. Members also receive a living stipend while serving in the program.

3. Work for the school
Schools charge students tuition, but their employees often can get a free education. “This is a great option, especially for older students with job experience,” says Reyna Gobel, author of “CliffsNotes Graduation Debt.” “If you’re 18, you might not qualify for a job that provides (tuition) benefits.”

Schools typically provide benefits for full-time workers and sometimes require a certain level of experience, Gobel says. Future students can find out about their school’s policy by calling the admissions office.

4. Waive your costs
Some students can get a free pass based on academic performance or other factors.

The North American Council on Adoptable Children in St. Paul, Minnesota, reports that Connecticut, Kentucky, Virginia, Maine, Massachusetts, Texas, Florida and Maryland offer waivers at certain public schools for adopted and foster care children.

Other schools offer waivers for Native American students, senior citizens and dislocated workers. To find out what your school offers, call the financial aid office.

5. Become an apprentice
An apprenticeship is another solid option when you’re determining how to get free tuition. They can also open you up to job opportunities post-college.

Overall, your average apprenticeship program will take 1-6 years. You will probably be required to put in that time along with at least 2,000 hours of field work annually. The good news is that there are apprenticeships in more than 1,000 occupations, which can give you more options.

In exchange, the sponsoring employer pays for college or technical training and provides a salary. A list of available programs is available at the ApprenticeshipUSA website.

6. Have your employer pick up the costs
Another way you might receive a free college education is through your employer. Often given in the form of an employee reimbursement, there are plenty of employers that can help curb the cost of higher education.

7. Be in demand
Another great way to find out how to go to college for free is to determine if your field of study is “high-needs.” Will your studies result in a career that’s high in demand? Ask yourself this before you even enroll if you’re trying to cut the cost of college.

Generally, schools will offer incentives to anyone focusing their studies on math, science, nursing, teaching, and social work. There are also additional opportunities available through organizations like Teach for America, the Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program and the National Institutes of Health.

The nursing program at the University of Portland in Oregon has offered scholarships covering approximately 80% of the final 2 years of undergraduate study, if students sign a 3-year employment contract with the local health system, Fabriquer says. “There are similar programs in (high-needs) fields across the country,” he adds.

8. Choose a school that pays you
Last on our list of ways on how to get free tuition, and probably the riskiest. There are, indeed, schools that will pay you to focus your studies in a single subject (which they dictate). Schools such as the Webb Institute and the Curtis Institute of Music offer a select range of academic programs and pick up the tuition cost for every student. Just think long and hard about your decision before you commit to this course.
