A survey was conducted at Texas A&M University in which the “Big Five” traits of Psychology were measured. The focus of the research is to use descriptive statistics to determine the average personality across the Texas A&M University student body and compare the results to the average personality across the University of Texas student body. Descriptive statistics describes the data that the researcher is analyzing in terms of the average and variability of the sample. Two types of descriptive statistics exist to describe the data: central tendency and variability. Central tendency describes the average of a sample by interpreting the mean, median, and mode. Variability describes the difference in the set of scores through the interpretation of standard deviation, variance, and range.
Being a first generation college student is something that I hold very close to my heart, growing up watching my parents struggle is what drives me to work hard and do better everyday. When I envision my future, I see a strong independent woman who works hard to give back to the community and the people that helped shape the person she is.
At Roanoke Valley Early College we expect the best for all students and teachers. And we want what’s best for all our students because we know that they are all capable of graduating with a high school diploma, associate’s degree in their choice and/or certificate (optional).

I want to join the FIU Honors College because it offers its students the opportunity to obtain a greater involvement in FIU and the community as well as being able to pursue their academic interests with a diverse group of individuals. This is something I would love to be a part of and contribute to during my upcoming years at FIU.
I strongly believe that every failure is a learning experience that should be taken as a lesson to grow from. I previously attended a 4 year university that became too much for me; attending school full-time, working 35 hours per week while trying to figure out what it is that I really wanted out of this university experience. I ended up failing most of my classes, putting my health at risk drowned by the tremendous amount of stress and just wanted to completely give up. Looking for a fresh start I decided to leave my university, and attend Norwalk Community College. Though this decision created self-doubt in the beginning, it soon came to my realization that it was the best decision I ever made. Immersed in an environment full of positive people, I was able to grow from the experience.

What is the main thing that students look at before attending a school? Tuition fees. Everyone have a tendency of looking at the tuition fee and setting there life goal if they should spend that much just to attend school.

I’m writing for a request of a reconsideration of my final grade (EDU 600 Professor Dresser). The last couple of months have been extremely difficult on my personal life. On April 20th my husband passed away and the week before graduation my farther fell ill. He suffered with violent seizures; I slept in the hospital (in a chair next to his bed) the week prior to graduation, only to leave to attend the ceremony. Four months to the day of my husbands passing my father passed but not without complications (Two intubation, tracheostomy and peg feeding tube). As his health care proxy I was left to make extremely hard decisions for his life.
I believe each and every student is capable of learning and achieving academic success, however some children require individualized support to ensure their success. A strength I posses that supports high academic expectations for all Houston ISD students is my ability to motivate and empower young children of all types to want to be successful. I am committed to creating a classroom culture where high expectations are set and most importantly constantly communicated to students. I have the ability to lead and differentiate engaging lessons where the diverse learning needs of all students are supported. I am a teacher that believes high academic expectations will be met when lessons are presented in a way that suits all learning styles. I use classroom management strategies to set students up for success.
Throughout my high school years, I have challenged myself to maintain a high GPA yet, be involved in various student organizations. I have learned to manage my time and to become a responsible student by fulfilling the requirements and duties of each organization. I am involved in National Honor Society, Educational Talent Search, Book Club, Art Club, and Technology Student Association. I was selected to become a National Honor Society member my sophomore year and was accepted because of outstanding academic achievement, good service to the community, and leadership. This organization has helped me grow as a person and it has allowed me to contribute to the community. We take part in activities such as the annual toy drive, Thanksgiving food
The three colleges I have chosen to apply to are Hinds Community College Vicksburg-Warren Campus, Alcorn State University, and Copiah-Lincoln Community College. The reasons I have selected these three colleges are based on location, financially feasible and great reviews I have heard from others about their own personal experience or had a family member who attended one of these colleges. I have a handicap Uncle that I help take care of so I need to be close home in order to help my mother. I have talked with mother and a few friends about my interest and goals and I have their complete support in my endeavors. Also I received great reviews on these colleges from other people and this is how I chose the three schools that will meet my
I feel that my GPA is not indicative of my current academic strength. During the first two years at the University of Illinois, I struggled to adapt to a new education system and a different cultural environment. However, in the following years, I excelled within the classroom. Despite originally declaring myself as a General Management major, I pushed myself to take more data driven electives. As a result, I was able to graduate with an additional Business Process Management major.
When I was seven, I had to witness my older brother be kicked out of the house. This was such a traumatizing experience because my older brother was my role model. Additionally, as a young child, my little sister and I were frequently home alone due to my parents always working double shifts. Thus, once my brother left, I had to take on his responsibilities; consequently, I learned how to be a leader at a young age. This experience has allowed me to develop values such as excellence, leadership, truth and service that will contribute to the vision and legacy of Howard University.
'Tis the season for college applications, and as a senior in high school this bring a lot of stress to me and I am not the only one. "Teens across the U.S. are standing by their mailboxes, waiting anxiously for the envelopes that will seal their academic fate. It's college admissions season and for many students a lot hinges on how well they performed in standardized testing"(Sheffer). As I have gone throughout my high school career I have achieved a 4.0 GPA. However, despite my hard work, my GPA will be looked at but the main focus of the decision process will be based on my ACT scores, and because I received a 25 this is very stressful to me. Although a 25 is not horrible, it will jeopardize some of the chances I would have getting into a
