Finally, FAU is perfect for me because of its location. Both the climate and its distance from home strengthen my resolve to go to FAU. The college campus is only 45 minutes away from my home. This will allow me the freedom to exercise my independence, gain new experiences, and still feel the security of being near
Attending Kennesaw State University has been a very rewarding journey. As a current senior in college, I have been given the chance to experience the University environment. An environment full of my interaction with my fellow classmates working in study groups and tutoring sessions. Also having the option to sit in on my professor's 2nd lecture that you did not understand fully during your class period.
Although my parents graduated from a small college in Miami, they recognized what it would mean to be a Gator and attend the University of Florida. They told me that when you are a Gator, you are more than just a member of the school, you are a part of a family and a nation of people who I would create lifetime bonds with. Additionally, they also told me that being a Gator is not just doing the “chomp” and going crazy at the football games, but living a life that can impact others in profound ways. Through the Florida Cicerones, I hope to inspire and educate students who might be interested in the University of Florida and that being a Gator is a lifestyle you live and carry with you forever, not just a short 4-year
As a military brat, I was born and raised in Jacksonville, North Carolina; and have lived here for most of my life. Recently our family was stationed in San Diego, California, and the move was a great eye-opener for me. When I moved to San Diego, I was surprised by the diversity of cultures, the abundance of activities, and how the crowds of people never stopped. It is an excellent place for people who enjoy being amongst other people; there is never a lack of entertainment day or night. Jacksonville, North Carolina on the other hand, is more for people who like a relaxed and quiet family oriented lifestyle.
I am attending Marshall University because it truly feels like this is the school for me. I have attended activities on the campus during my time in high school like the Summer Healthcare Pipeline Initiative and I feel that through those experiences I have been able to experience the campus enough to know that this is where I belong. When I have talked to students in the programs for the major that I am interested in they always have nothing but good things to say, and I think that's says a lot about how this university. Lastly, I appreciate that the location of Marshall is close enough to my hometown of South Charleston for me to stay close to my family and friends and it is far enough for me to be able to gain independence.
I chose NDSU because I feel like I was pretty well acquainted with the campus during my time in high school. Each summer, for FFA, my chapter, along with others from across the state, spent a week here competing in different agricultural competitions. Also, I talked with alumni from this nursing program, and they all said it was set up very well, and also put them on a track to getting a good job afterwards. When I came for a tour earlier this spring, I got to hear a speech from the Dean of nursing, and I just sort of felt like this was the right place. On a side note, I like being here because of the agricultural side of NDSU as well, even if I’m not necessarily going into a field pertaining to it. It seems more like home to me, when the person next to me, going into Vet Tech, rides horse as much as I did.
One thing I needed in my college of choice was that it had to be small because I knew I would be able to focus better. My first choice, Towson University, was a large school and all my friends currently go there, but God, and my perspicacious mother, clearly knew I should not go there because of the countless distractions that would have hindered my success. The small atmosphere of Catawba enabled them to have a family style relationship all around campus. I am used to this family style because it reminded me of my high school. Another reason I chose to enroll at Catawba was because of its six hour distance away from my home known as the DMV, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia, area. I have been in that area all my life and living somewhere else for I think would be greatly beneficial to my development as a person and would broaden my perspective. The other aspect of moving away from where you have been all your life is that you have to leave behind all your family and friends and that is one of the hardest parts. However, you will have a newfound appreciation for them that
The main reason I see UCF as one of the best colleges for myself is the campus’s distance away from my home. The UCF campus is within driving distance of where I currently live, allowing me to live in the same house while I attend all my classes each day. Reputation has also always been important to me when looking for a college. If a place does not have a good reputation, I do not see much reason to give it a chance. However, UCF is known as one of the biggest colleges in the US and one of the most successful. I also had two friends attend UCF, one for the exact same major as I plan to go for and one that took a very similar major. Both of them have highly recommended UCF for the major I wish to take. Though having this kind of reputation is nice, I was told multiple times to visit the campus myself because not every college is made for everyone. So, I took a tour of UCF on a school sponsored trip and found everything I had heard to be true. The campus was beautiful and the staff were all very kind. After spending the day on the campus I knew this college, after everything I had heard and where it was located, was the one I wanted to
When I toured the school and got to stay overnight with amazing student hosts, not only did I fall in love with the campus, but with the welcoming people, California weather, and the thought of the numerous opportunities awaiting me. It was simply a home away from home.
The institution that I have decided to attend is the University of Central Florida. The main reason why I chose this school was because it will help me save money and I won’t need to travel anywhere to get my degree. Another big reason as to why I chose this school is because they have many great programs that will help me be better prepared when I begin my career such as their Modeling, Stimulation, and Training Epicenter which is used to prepare nursing students with different types of scenarios that they might face while working and also helps them work hands on rather than watching someone else do the job. UCF was also a good choice because their Medical Mission trips could help me and other nursing students travel to other places in the
My final goal is to be able to run my own business and be successful with the business. I have strong faith that to be able to conquer all of these goals the school to study in should be Johnson University. I believe to achieve these goals in life I have to put god above it all and ask him to help me make the right choices and decisions. I also feel as if Johnson University can help me spiritually grow in god and in his faith. Besides the fact that the school allows me to play basketball, the environment in which the school has is very welcoming and peaceful for me, I think the size of the school is perfect for me and that since the total population of the school is so small that if I lack in a subject I’d be able to get extra help to be able to graduate with high honors as I wish to do as one of my life goals. The administration there also seems as if they truly do care for their students and I feel like they will be able to help me build up my own business I know they will guide me with the right classes and steps to take to be able to become very
I arrived on Augustana’s campus on August 8 for football fall camp. Compared to the non-athlete students, I have been here a couple weeks longer. Overall, I have enjoyed my time here so far, it has been an amazing environment! From football to classes, I have been able to meet some amazing friends which has just enhanced my experiences so far. Academics wise my expectations for Augustana were very high, especially knowing how prestigious this college is. With getting a first hand experience with the academic side of school, I have been very impressed. Not only have I noticed how prestigious this college is, I have also been able to make great relationships with my professors. This allows me to have a better connection with them, and
