Reflecting on the past nineteen years I have been privileged to work with outstanding students, faculty and colleagues at the University of Wisconsin River Falls. I am humbled and honored being nominated for the University of Wisconsin System, Board of Regents Academic Staff Excellence Award. I have been asked to highlight my professional contributions and service to UW – River Falls, which I feel begins with my own philosophy regarding the work we all do for the students who live, work, grow, and thrive in our community of learners.
As a transfer student, I want to feel California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) such as my home. Being ambassador, it is the best to learn about my school, share my experiences, motivate other students to work towards their goals, look for help if they need, show other students our
My life has been an ongoing stuggle, but my hard work, determination, and enthusiasm for my education have enabled me to pursure my dreams. My academic plans are to major in pre-occupational therapy. After graduating and completing the prerequisite, I plan to obtain a license in Occupational Therapy by attending OT School. Success does not come from a pay check. For me, helping and assisting others acheive their goals is the purest form of success. I want to travel and eventually settle down in my hometown. My overall career goal is to give back to the community that shaped me into the person I am. I am a hardworking-dedicated student, who focuses on my work, yet I have always enjoyed being involved in extracirricular activities. As you can see from my application, I enjoy sports and clubs. In the following year, I plan to get deeper involved
Prior to high school, my uncle was my chemistry teacher. As a food scientist, he was to me a great inventor who knew everything about the magic of taste, texture, and aroma; I still remember his lecture on “good” chocolate and how cocoa butter—solid at room temperature—melts readily in our mouths. Raised on an early appreciation for the power of applied science, I am now driven toward chemical science by a desire to uncover solutions to challenges in the modern world.
The HLLC community not only provides students with accommodations of residential living but it rewards students with the opportunity to enhance their leadership capabilities and teamwork talents. By being a member of the HLLC community I will be guided as student but shaped into a student leader. I will be able to learn about the right ways of approaching and bringing awareness to social issues, An example in which would be my passion to increase cleanliness and education around the globe. I once saw a documentary entitle “On my way to school”, it featured 6 children and their daily difficulties. They lived in an areas filled with filth, but were happy and thankful to at least have a roof over their heads. These kids would also have to
Greetings, I am Winifred Knighton- Davis, Program Supervisor/Recruiter with Lutheran Services of Georgia (LSG). LSG is one of the largest non-profit providers of foster care services in the state of Georgia. This agency specializes in placing at-risk and special needs children in quality, highly trained, specialized foster care homes. LSG works in partnership with the Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) to ensure the safety, permanency, and well-being of children. Although I have been with this agency for ten months, I have devoted five years working within therapeutic foster care services. I have twelve years of experience as a social worker and have worked as a school social worker, in mental health, with individuals with disabilities, with the prevention of underage drinking, and specialized foster care. I received a Bachelor of Social Work and a Master of Social Work from Albany State University.
I discovered Loma Linda University School of Medicine through a friend who urged me to apply knowing how much of a devout Christian I am. I am aware that LLUSM educates its students in the teachings of Christ, and teaches them to heal patients and make man whole as Christ did. This in itself requires an understanding of Christianity and its application to medicine as a career. As a future medical student, I recognize that I will be required to act according to these Christian ideals, a privilege that I look forward to. I admire LLUSM due to its ability to spread love to its patients and inform them of Christ’s ministry. I wholeheartedly agree with the philosophy; healing a patient is much more than treating the symptoms.
This goals pertained to my ground expectations of where i wished to be upon graduation. And with the knowledge that Ucc would grant me that opportunity eased my heart as well as limited those opinionated facts of off
I am interested in becoming a member of FLOC because I know I have the potential to succeed as a leader at University of Texas at Arlington. My skills as a speaker and a guide make leadership something I can utilize to inspire those who follow me.
Hi there. My name is Genevieve (Jenna for short) and I’m proud to say I am a part of CCU’s class of 2019. I come from a small town in the middle of nowhere in Harford County, Maryland. I have two younger sisters, so I’m the first one of the family to tackle this adventure. I’m planning on majoring in communication with a minor in photography. I discovered my passion for writing/business/broadcasting when I was placed into a journalism class in tenth grade. I never thought I’d end up being the business manager and one of many reporters on a staff that created a 20-page newspaper every month for the next three years, and a main anchor on our daily morning announcements.
However, I am grateful that I have been able to identify the weak points in my learning efforts so early in my academic career and also been able to implement changes to them. The way in which I study is drastically changing and I have already seen positive improvements because of that. I have reprioritized many times, focusing primarily on my studies, and finally arrived at a balance that works best with my schedule. I have learned to not be reserved and to expose myself to all that is available at this university because some of my best experiences have come from unexpected moments. Overall, I have assured myself that choosing a liberal arts education was the best decision I made because it offers me an infinite amount of opportunities, both intellectually and personally. My goals have been reevaluated after my learning thus far and I am enthusiastic to continue to pursue them throughout the remainder of my time here. Academically, I plan to graduate with a competitive skillset that will set me apart from others in the workforce and also graduate studies. The education I am receiving here is phenomenal and I wish to translate that into my future career. To do so, I strive to be involved inside and outside of the classroom to further my knowledge in all subjects. Through involvement in various organizations, I aim to become more diverse in my abilities. Along with that, I have ambition
My eyes lit up as a saw all of the different clubs and organizations offered. I loved Quiz Bowl, Book Club, Dance, and Chess Club in high school and I would love to continue these in my college life. Furthermore, at Rensselaer I can pursue my personal interest in sustainability with like-minded students through Vasudha. I could quickly see that many people at Rensselaer share similar interests with me. This idea was further supported after my subsequent tour around campus. Students were studying outside or milling about in groups, but what drew my eye was a group of students in vests and holding nerf guns. I watched as they prepared for battle and then took off after one another, and I had to stop myself from asking if I could join. The people I met and the students I talked to showed me the fun and encouraging side of a school that is known for its academics. Spending a couple hours on campus allowed me to see the fun, studious, and unique nature of Rensselaer and I felt right at

Acting as a leader in an international organization called Cru is a human service activity I participate in while I am an undergraduate student. I am a professing Christian. Cru's mission is for everyone on Grand Valley State University's (GVSU) campus to know someone who is faithfully following Jesus. The
