That was a week from D.C. I would never forget. What astounded me weren't the beautiful buildings but the people I've met there. We've met representatives from leading aviation companies such as Lockheed Martin and NASA, an experience that made me speechless. I also enjoyed time talking to students from Pennsylvania and New Hampshire who had the same ambition as I did. I chatted with the brightest students in the nation and it in part belittled me. This was the real world, the big league. What was I compared to these prodigies? Of course a proud student who's on the same line as they are. It was that moment I decided to become the very best at what I will be doing. That and the reason that we didn't win the first place in the
I have always known that I wanted to attend a top-tier university. The other details came later; the small size, the proximity to an urban hub, and my major itself. For a while, I was convinced that it would not happen; that I just wouldn’t get in. Now, I realize that I have an opportunity to do so. This is an opportunity I do not intend to waste.
When I first started thinking about college schools I never thought about going to MSU or Ole Miss. I wanted to go to the bigger universities, but I knew I wouldn’t do well if I went there my first year. My high school did not prepare me enough for University, and I hadn’t decided on a major either. I choose East Central Community College (ECCC) as the school I would go to for many reasons, and when I got here I knew I made the right choice.
I have attended my current school, City Honors in Buffalo, NY, since the 7th grade. While I cherish the education and experiences I gained during my six years there, my graduating class is very small and I feel ready to move forward, grow and utilize new opportunities. When I started my college search, I knew I wanted to attend a large, diverse university with strong academics and an energetic and enthusiastic setting.
Excellence motivates me to achieve, regardless of hardships and obstructions in my path. I put in effort and hard work to maintain a healthy balance with school, work, and extracurricular activities, so that I can continue to achieve. I have visited Rutgers University several times last year and each time lowered me in more and more. My first visit was to the Rutgers Camden Campus for Open House event. The information received sparked a curiosity inside of me to check out what the other campuses had to offer me. After doing much-needed research on what I really wanted to do with my life and career goals I began to have my eyes set on Rutgers University Newark Campus. I then made sure that I had to make it to the next upcoming Fall Open House to experience this wonderful campus for myself.
For my faculty member interview, I chose my historical perspectives professor, Jim Coons. In conducting the interview, I learned many interesting things about Mr. Coons and gained some insight on his views of college life.
The faculty and departmental meetings prepared me for a successful start of my college career at Seton Hill by allowing me to get to know my professors, and allowing me to receive a real insight into
Swarthmore's potential for creating opportunities to make important connections with people and companies caught my attention. The externship program intrigued me when I visited the campus, as well as the tri-college consortium. The cash-free campus and shuttles are wonderful additions that will allow me to explore and create many memories. The proximity to the city also allows for weekend adventures, and trips home via the train stations. I love the small class sizes and close-knit community that the campus nurtures. The campus itself is a work of art. Although I enjoy exploring the city, I always feel more at home surrounded by nature and fresh air. Besides the physical attributes of Swarthmore, the people make the campus irresistible. When
From That’s Why I Chose Yale to the Hogwarts-esque competition between which is the best residential college, Yale appealed to me due to not just the exceptional students and highly esteemed professors, but also the quirky nature of its community. With extensive academic and research resources, Yale will drive me to excel in my ambitions and achieve my maximum potential while collaborating with others. Through our integrated efforts, I could broaden my knowledge in several fields and utilize an interdisciplinary approach to my work, allowing me to develop the best possible results in my field of
At the open house, I got a chance to have an engaging conversation with some currently attending seniors [Nilay, Patrick and Celine] at the academy, and as we talked I felt that I could really relate to them, whether it be in terms of interests, hobbies
Campus involvement can be anything from dancing the night away to crossing my legs in a specific direction. Involvement at Oklahoma State University is very important when trying to leave a legacy or even meet new friends. I have attended many events; however, there were two that stayed close to my heart. Victoria Secret Zumba was something that I loved so much. I am a regular Zumba attender and this added one of my favorite stores with my favorite workout. The next involvement activity that I participated in was the business etiquette dinner. I am so pleased that I signed up for this event; I received much more than an amazing meal.
After high school, I watched all of my peers go off to four year universities and talk for hours about the college of their dreams. I could not relate—in fact, I hated almost every school I looked at. Whenever my parents would take me to any school I would complain the whole way through. Every school just did not seem to care about their students. Every tour felt vapid and like they just wanted my money. Then I saw Eau Clair. Before I even looked around at the campus, I heard about everything that Eau Clair does to try and help their students do well outside of college from the HIP idea to the councilor clusters. I was in awe about how much Eau Clair cares about their students and want to get them on the right path. After I heard about that,
Getting an up-close experience for yourself is better than watching it through someone else's eyes. When I received the grand opportunity to stay overnight at Denison University, honestly, at the time I had low expectations. However, after experiencing what Denison had to offer my mindset about this school changed. So what was it that sparked my interest? Well, for one it had to do with the classes and how much students were actively participating as well as asking the professor challenging questions. As a leader, I like to see other leaders take the initiative, questioning what they are learning while not just eating everything they are fed. Furthermore, the second reason had to do with the closeness of the group of African-American students
Cornell University was the first college I ever visited. Not knowing what to expect, I was in for a quite surprise. Everything about Cornell made me excited! The location, not being too close to a city, but not far from Ithaca, the friendly and inspiration tour guides, and the memorizing building, specifically the engineering building. My goal as a Chemical Engineer is to help those in society in anyway that I can. The devoted Professors at the
