As a new freshman at the University of Evansville, time management stands as a recurring challenge of mine. Between taking 15 credit hour classes, which consist of three honors courses, working and studying, my time to live is pretty much gone. Since being in DISC 110 Student Success Strategies, which I found crazy at first to even be in, I have learned strategies to successfully manage my time management challenges to ensure I stay on track each semester and for the rest of my academic career.
In spite what I was told, I gave the Air Force a try. I did not score high enough to get recruited, so then I started college within the same of year of graduating High School. The adjustments I have made to ensure that I would not encounter difficulties in my educational endeavors is by alternating my work and living environment, more flexibility in time, exercise weekly and changed my diet. A balanced lifestyle includes physical fitness and a healthy diet. I believe this allows students to focus mentally throughout their daily task or projects. I now see college as a second full time job with putting in at least twenty one hours a week of studying time at the library. Study sessions will insist on 3 hours Monday through Friday with a minimum of 5 hours on weekends. In addition to the changes that I have made in order to succeed, there are challenges in the aspect of coming into the Information Technology world with a healthcare background. Healthcare has its own language as well as the Information Technology. Even though learning the language of Information Technology will be a challenge I am confident in my strength in persistency. I’ve learned my strength is being persistent in finishing a task or goal. With diligence and persistency I will accomplish my goals. For example, an unexpected emergent situation occurred at work. There was an active shooter present within the building. .
College is a life changing adventure, and I want it to be the best experience I can possibly receive. Attending Medgar Evers College, I have set high hopes and expectations. I hope to interact with people of diverse ethnicity. I want to learn more about different cultures and the individualization of people. And so far getting to know people on campus has been one of my greatest experiences. I have met so many wonderfully different people here. I hope to develop more independence. To be more responsible for keeping up with my schoolwork, preparing for tests, and making most out of my classes, even when they start early. Being successful in college is about more than handing your work in on time and passing classes. It’s about staying motivated. I know for a fact there will be a lot of demanding of my time. I know that procrastinating is not the best way of approaching situations. It is my responsibility to try to regularly motivate myself, even if it’s pulling
I’m proud of my accomplishments thus far in my academic career as a result of making the right decisions in the challenging courses I take that have all been possible through organization and paying attention to my teachers. Through cross country and track, I’ve been able to meet amazing people who share the passion of running and are focused on making the best future for themselves. I’ve benefitted from being a self-motivated student to continue working hard in and out of the classroom. An essential skill I learned was how to manage my time better. As I continue to add activities to my schedule, I use a planner to make sure I am dividing my time evenly to academics and
I need to do the best of my abilities academically in school to earn a scholarship to afford college without taking the risk of student loans. I have already started my community service and at the moment I have a GPA of 4.1600 (weighted) and 4.0 (not weighted). I constructed the plan to be a Neurosurgeon at middle school and have done high school classes at that time. Now all I need to do is sustain that GPA high. To do that I must take AP and honor classes in school and in the summer, AP classes online and pass them. I must prevent myself from getting tangled up in the web of distractions so that I may swiftly walk the trail to success with fewer hurdles to overcome on the way. Once I am able to maintain my GPA to an abundant amount, I can purposefully go forward to taking clubs or sports which would attract more attention to colleges. I have also been going to Khan Academy to prepare for SATs and by the end of my high school year; hopefully I have acquired a scholarship which would increase the chances of me being a Neurosurgeon. Although, in four years my plans can change, but I can easily adapt to the changes because all that could change would be the major or career I would like to partake
As I began my junior year, I found myself juggling a rigorous academic schedule, varsity tennis, a social life and a new job. At first, I figured I could balance all of these activities. However, I became humbled by a 32% on an early Physics test triggering sheer panic regarding future applications to college. Knowing my grades needed to trend up as a junior, I dug down and did everything possible to improve my grades. I committed myself to a nightly study regimen consisting of intermittent on-off study blocks. Diligent removal of all distractions, including my I-Phone while studying was a major key. Also, I reduced my hours at work and often went to school early to meet with my teachers to review material. This action plan ultimately led to the improvement of my grades in all classes, culminating with a “B” in Physics and meeting my overall goal of a 4.0 GPA. Yes, I had failed a single test, but the real failure was not prioritizing and planning my activities proactively. The lesson I learned from this
Keeping a personal schedule or calendar can assist in prioritizing important dates, deadlines, and goals (Martinez Tucker, 2002). Asking for assistance from friends, family, and neighbors can also provide support. Finally, engaging in various stress relieving activities may prevent students from feeling overwhelmed.
I am currently a dual enrollment student enrolled at Hudson High School. With the opportunities that dual enrollment gives me, I hope to walk across the graduation stage with both my associates degree and high school diploma. After graduating high school, I will work on a master’s degree in computer hardware engineering. My university of preference would USF because of their excellent engineering programs as well as the proximity to Tampa. If I feel a need for it, I may pursue certification in actuarial science either during school or after graduation. Besides English, the other classes I am taking are Introduction into Chemistry, Intro into Public Speaking and Pre-Calculus. Pursuing and advancing my career is one of the most important things
I am mature enough to manage my own deadlines, schedules, and academic interests because I am an accountable student and have had consistent experience dealing with these responsibilities. I am well-organized and use good time management skills which helps in handling deadlines and scheduling. Deadlines have greatly affected my academic
Imagine you are entering college on an academic scholarship you have earned through your high school career by playing a sport. You have a full course load from 8am to 3pm followed by practice, an hour in the weight room, then conditioning, an hour of studying strategies followed by homework, dinner, shower and studying. This is now your schedule everyday, for the next 4 years. Sounds hectic right? Well it is.
The purpose of the Multi-Year Training and Exercise Plan (MYTEP) is to document MMC’s training and exercise program priorities for a specific multi-year time period. This is a living document that can be updated and refined as needed. These priorities are linked to corresponding core capabilities and, if applicable, a rationale based on existing strategic guidance, threat assessments, corrective actions from previous exercises, or other factors. This Multi-year TEP identifies the training and exercises that will help the organization build and sustain the core capabilities needed to address its training and exercise program priorities.

Barack Obama says “community colleges play an important role in helping people transition between careers by providing the retooling they need to take on a new career”. Junior year of high school is where students starts to think, and prepare for college. There’re some students that are well prepared, and knows exactly what career path to take. Also, there’s those students that are set to go to their dream school, but there’re also those students who struggles until they reach college school still trying to figure out what they want to do in the future. Although the 2-year program and the 4-year program both offer degrees, the amount of benefits that the student can obtain have a significant difference. Compare to the 4-year program 2-year program is more flexible in admission, tuition fee is a lot cheaper, and has distinct types of degrees to offer.
