At my graduate assistantship at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ), the graduate students from Monmouth were introduced to a few of the key offices that work with Residential Education and Housing. Through this introduction, I was able to meet Kelly Hennessy, who is the current Associate Dean of Students in the Department of Health and Wellness at The College of New Jersey. As a future Student Affairs professional, one of my end goals would ultimately become a Dean of Students, so it was exciting to interview Hennessy and see how she got to where she is today. Originally when Hennessy first started her college years, she thought that she wanted to be a teacher. After working with the professionals in her Residence Life Office and Leadership Office at the University of Buffalo, where she received both her bachelors and master’s degrees, she realized that her passion was no longer teaching, but rather to become the professionals she was surrounded and inspired by every day. Hennessy has worked in Residence Life for majority of her career up to about two years ago when the Department of Health and Wellness first started on TCNJ’s campus.
Oakland fell into the Alternative Education Law program. Students worked at their own pace and speed to complete school. Oakland High School generally graduated between 15-20 students a year. Several smaller programs existed within the school, such as Region 5, or ALC (Alternative Learning Center) program or Lincoln Tree Farm. Region 5 were for student who were in transition from just being released from either Echo Glenn or Green hill youth jail facilities. They worked with a JRA representatives and would complete school work and prepare to reenter the comprehensive high school setting. They would have no contact with the remainder of the building and programs. This program ended during the 2007-2008 school year.

McDonald’s is not some ordinary fast food restaurant with its trademark logo advertised almost everywhere in the U.S., many people all over the world know about these famous golden arches. The McDonald’s franchising started in 1955 and in less than fifty years, McDonald’s was introduced all over the world in countries such as, China, Japan, Great Britain, Sweden, France etc. McDonald’s global expansion has intermingled with cultural traditions because these countries are becoming more westernized. Since East Asia is becoming more westernized it also means that there is a cultural difference because of the influences from outside the country. The cultures are being changed because of how ideas are expressed by people and not by their
After taking some time to read the university website and student testimonials, I was able to gauge my “fit” candidacy at Pikeville. Having traveled to the area previously to visit family has also been factored into my decision. It is the college’s involvement with the community that is most enticing to me. I participate in my own community and wish to continue community involvement while in medical school. The humanistic tradition and the intrinsic osteopathic philosophy held by Pikeville obviously resonate with me due to my interest in the osteopathic approach to medicine. These facets, delivered with a patient centered focus, are what I desire to provide for my patients in the future. The campus’s interest in delivering high quality
I have lived in Newbridge all seventeen years of my life and I would never imagine living anywhere else. Newbridge has a population of just over 20,000 people and is located on the Eastern coast of Florida, about halfway down the state. Newbridge is not known for being a tourist location; most of the outsiders that travel to Newbridge come here because they have family in the area or previously lived here.
Why Should I be chosen as the recipient of the Gaylon Raney Memorial scholarship? After learning about your father, I know I would be absolutely honored to win a scholarship in his name.
Communities are all over the place, multiple people belong to all types of communities. The community I belong to is the community of Fox Hall. I’ve lived in Fox Hall for the whole time I have been attending the University of Massachusetts Lowell. I have met numerous amounts of people and made several friends while living in Fox Hall. Fox Hall is a fascinating building because it has eighteen floors of residence. Fox Hall is the tallest building in Lowell which is very interesting. Since I have been here, I was curious about all the activities that have been going on in Fox Hall. I chose Fox Hall as my residence hall because it offers many opportunities to meet new people and make new friends. I find it important to see how people react during
The Court scene in the movie, in which Johnny is put on trial in the movie features a extremely staged and surreal element to the film are questioned in a medium shot scale similar to how Kitties is staged in Chris’ painting. With a plain backdrop, and no real background except for brief moments featuring the judge, this scene is the most unrealistic in the film as it attempts to narrow in on focusing on just the characters in the film. With the film being shot in a studio most of the shots in the film, attempt to be as realistic as possible so this scene initially perplexed me, as the portrait style is not only unrealistic in how the characters are stages but features a lighting style that puts them directly in the light,
Apuleius' Golden Ass, the only surviving novel of the Roman Empire, is a tale of a Greek nobleman devoting his life to the goddess Isis following his transformation to an ass and back. Although a work of fiction, the novel reveals a great deal about religion in Apuleius' society. This information, however, must be viewed with a critical eye. He incorporates stories from Greco-Roman mythology not to affirm their validity, but to reveal their commonness to society. Apuleius insults other religions that are not of the Pantheon with severe viciousness, while the general public may have been more open to them. In the end, he praises Isis and Osiris as the supreme gods while giving first hand account of their righteousness.
