Starting the new semester will be a different experience as to the first semester. My first semester was a beginning to a new chapter, it was my first semester in college. Everything was so different compared to high school. Some things do not change when it comes to school instead, they need to improve, and in this case, it is being successful and not getting into bad habits. As the semester proceeds, there are things I hope I do not change, so they can help me succeed. There are also many obstacles that can get in my way, but with motivation I can overcome them. Some obstacles that might stand in my way of being successful this semester are laziness, distractions, and my social life.
I can’t believe my first college semester is almost over. Key word is “almost” because the weeks following thanksgiving break will be critical for me. Even though it’s almost over, I must finish strong. I wouldn’t want all my hard work to go to waste. All the A’s that I earned so far must remain A’s for me in order for me to be happy with my academic performance. These next 3 weeks are going to be hectic, but also relaxing.
“I’m so nervous, what if I do horrible!?” Marie looked and sounded really anxious. “Don’t worry, we’re both gonna do great!” I explained, even though I was nervous too. That was the day we were finally trying out for competitive dance at our dance studio, Bleker’s. Bleker’s used to do competitive
With that, I would like to ask any form of a bursary or financial assistance that this school can offer that would assist me with the additional expenses while I am continuing my study. My 8-year-old son is still required a babysitter since I would not be around to be with him right after his class at Winona Elementary School in Hamilton. Also, my husband is the only one who is earning in the family. Additionally, my husband’s family are living in Toronto, hence they would not be able to help us to accompany our
I am currently a freshman at the College of Charleston and my life so far has been great! College life is quite a transition from high school, but I am definately enjoying it. The first few weeks of this semester were kind of a struggle for me because I was away from home and had to figure out how to do everything by myself. In addition to that I had to get in the routine of classes, network with new friends, and get familiar with the campus. I am also involved with our school’s Bonner Leader Program, which is a four-year civic leadership and development program highlighted by regular training and reflection activities, along with the requirement of 200 service hours per year. Through this program, I got the opportunity of interning with Coastal
Over the course of the semester I have crossed many boundaries that I never would have thought of. Whether that be domestically or culturally over the course of the year and with that it has changed my identity. This semester I found who I am more than anything and gave
This semester I was a lot more involved than the previous semester. After settling down and getting used to the college atmosphere. I found that there was a lot more to do and get involved with than I previously thought. Some of things things I got involved with range from sporting events, class snapchat, major spotlight, career service (job shadows), dome concerts, union trivia, art exhibition, and UNI research studies. While participating in these activities I gained friends, experience, and memorizes. These activities made freshman year fly by and also gave me a feeling of what it is like to be a Panther. Also just experience a few things that UNI has to offer.
Another big decision I made, was to move my Children of the American Revolution State project to the Museum of the Southeast American Indian, which means I will not be traveling for CAR, as I was doing in the Spring. This project being located somewhere on my campus means I will be able to check in on the project whenever I need be around my class and study schedule. Even though its hard to stay away from people you have been with friends with for several years, I have realized how important having the right friends are this semester. Which is why I chose roommates who have positive goals and they set their goals and work towards them. These are the people, I need to be around to keep myself positive and working towards my own goals. In the course of the semester I have weeded out friends that are no longer worth my attention because they don't support my goals. One of these goals is to graduate and eventually earn my Doctorate in Education. My career goals, really have made me realize that I have to put aside organizations and a social life to achieve what I have my mind set
My first semester as a college freshman is finally coming to an end. This semester has been the start to a new chapter in my life and I am glad to have finally finished my first semester on a high note. Coming into college I never knew what things would be like and how would I adjust. All I knew is that I wanted to succeed and eventually graduate college. The courses I have taken this semester have had big impact on my learning and my future. Assignments that taught skills and lessons to be used in the future. I have learned skills such as being able to collaborate in groups because of projects in ASU 150.
As I start my journey of being a college student again, I will also learn and not to do the same mistakes I did in undergraduate years. I am eager to see the difference all of this will make, and with a positive mind set know that my time will all work out in the
This semester has flew by a lot faster than I anticipated. The akron experience has taught me quite a bit that has helped me in many different areas. Being successful in college to me means to organize and manage all the parts of your life so that you are content. College is alot to keep track of and managing this and the rest of your life is the main thing that will keep you going so you are able to take breaks. Without breaks you will get burned out and I learned this pretty fast. I would say I was successful this semester even if my grades weren't exactly where I wanted them I am getting the feel for the whole experience.
Hey you! Yes you, have you or anyone you know ever challenged a belief or an idea that they have had about themselves or things they have done and/or still do? Of course, they have, They are human and all of us end up doing it at one point in
I hope you are doing well! I apologize for this delayed update, but here's a quick summary of my first two semesters so far at Wake Forest :-)
Goals for second semester The first semester of school wasn’t the best, but not all are good. Now it is the second semester and everything has re-started. The new semester gives me a second chance to do what i didn’t do last semester.
Coming into college, one major thing I was excited for was the week of homecoming. In high school, I always had the most spirit and this week was one of my favorites. That being said, I looked forward to participating in the homecoming events this past fall football season. I gained from this experience is that both high school and college homecomings are sociological events that can be compared in many ways.
