My Personal Experience In College

Good Essays

I feel that I have grown exponentially my first semester at UMD. Reading the letter I wrote to myself at the beginning of the semester, I realized that I didn’t have anything extraordinary to say to myself. The person I have evolved into over the past months is a lot more aware of the future and how the actions I make truly do affect those around me. Also, academically, I have learned about the educational system, the life around us, and how to relieve stress in my life. I can apply this knowledge my life and teach others about what I have learned. I am so blessed to have received an outstanding education. Personally, I believe I accomplished a lot this semester. I am doing fairly well in all of my classes, I have made amazing friends, I am learning how to ice skate, I declared a major, I joined a Bible study, I tried swing dancing, and so much more! It wasn’t always so great though. When my friend lost his father that event made my heart break for his family and made me miss mine. I will continue to miss my family sometimes, but I need to remember that they are just a phone call or Facetime away. Advice that I would give to an incoming freshman would be to reach out. Go outside of your comfort zone and find people who will be there to support you no matter what. I am so thankful for everything that I have learned and accomplished at UMD.
