In my life, I have had to make made many difficult choices, each with their own consequences, but the most significant choice I made occurred three years ago; I decided to leave my home state of Maine, and enroll in Texas A&M University. This decision has had a major impact on my life, and continues to influence my life today for better and for worse. I've grown to be more independent, but as the same time my debt increases every semester.
The hundreds of things I experienced during my time at Lone Star College have forever changed my life. Every professor and student I encountered helped shape me into the person I am today. In high school, I would constantly struggle with my work and dreaded going to class. The moment I graduated high school I was given two options, go to college or move out of the house. Considering that it would be impossible to support myself fresh out of high school, college was my only option. I started off thinking college was a waste of time but I was dead wrong. Lone Star College gave my life guidance and skills that have contributed to my success.
Before my admission to Houston Community College, I was lost on how to succeed in my courses. However, my admission to this institute exposed me to different courses which educated me on different lessons on how not only to survive in college, but also how to succeed in my classwork. There are two main lessons that I wish to pass on to other students on how they can flourish in their courses.
Ever since I was younger I was full of wonder, which could be argued that it translated to a love of math and science. As I began to mature this wonder would keep me intrigued in learning an created an excitement for school. I started my education in Houston and am excited to continue it at such a great school like Texas Tech and thanks to this scholarship that will be possible.
I fully understand the reason for my suspension from North Central Texas College. At the time of classes, my grades were too low and did not show my strength as a student. I would like you/ the school to reconsider my enrollment for classes.
As summer concluded the new school year approached, senior year. Not only was this year going to be full of surprises, but also stress about college planning and admission. Having moved to three different high schools I was excited to finally settle at Coppell and graduate in Texas. Even though this location was new to me I was satisfied with how well I fit in. I then decided to apply to schools around Dallas. The University of Dallas offers not only the class-size I was looking for the but also the academic standards and location I was hoping for. The university is very close to my home town as both are located in Irving. Having moved around to multiple schools within my educational career attending a local college would be essential to
Traveling, listening to music, shopping, and studying different cultures are distinctive things that embody what I like to do, but being unique is what really defines me as a person. Being fashion-forward represents a part of my life, but just because something is on trend doesn’t mean I’m going to follow it. I’m an active listener with strong leadership skills. Fluent in English and Spanish written and communication skills. I’m able to make decisions individually and comfortable interacting with all levels of the organization and publicly.
Hello everyone. I moved to the United States 5 years ago when I was 15, and started my high school experience at Coppell High School. Right now, I am a sophomore in college and about 20 years old, and I was living in Dallas for all of those years except this year because of the University that I am attending, the University of Texas at Austin, so I am currently living at Austin to be close to the University. I have attended Dallas Community College for my freshman year, and I still take my general classes there. My major is Electrical Engineering, and I am deciding to major in three sub discipline of this major; Communication, Circuit, and Software Engineering. One of my best experiences was studying at the Dallas Community College because
Why Tulane? There are plenty of obvious reasons for wanting to go to Tulane. For one thing it’s in New Orleans, and who doesn’t love New Orleans? I live on the North Shore. I could come home every, single weekend and I would never miss a holiday with my family. Groceries and laundry wouldn’t be a problem.
After graduating high school I began taking classes at Austin Community College. Focusing more on my business and marketing classes, working as a manager at Ashley Furniture Homestore this allowed me to use what I was learning in the classroom and incorporate these skills into the work environment. Over my time at Austin Community College, the classes were becoming harder to fill many of my classes were dropped or the Dean of marketing substituting many of my courses for other courses. I became Frustrated with this process and decided to finish my certification in marketing and return to college at a later time. Following graduating Austin Community College I became sick and was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. This diagnosis had an enormous
Imagine having a relax evening and walking around to explore College Campus with your classmate and professor. Do you like to enroll in one of this classes? I definitely likes it because I can spend times with my classmate and my professor's which can bring our relation more closer. Most professors are intelligence
Working on campus in an influential department, such as the undergraduate admissions office at Sam Houston State University, can present a multitude of opportunities to engage personably with prospective students from all walks of life. Like any other ordinary day in the admissions office, I respond to phone, walk-in and email inquiries related to SHSU’s admissions procedures and policies for prospective students. Unbeknown to me, however, this “ordinary day” would be an office visit that I would never forget. I recall meeting a remarkable freshman who had an aspiration to become an attorney and was interested in majoring in political science, but had some reservations. The student explained that at the age of sixteen he was diagnosed with
Life is timed and things happen for a purpose. One day when I look back at the time that I began gaining ownership of my life, I will remember of Houston Community College (HCCs); despite the downfalls I experienced regarding my academic achievements. In this journey, every person that I had the opportunity to spend some time with, thought me a something. However, there is one that although we spent just one semester, it felt like a life. And I call her the professor who changed my life. She was my instructor from the introduction to communication class “Speech 1301,” her class helped to boost my confidence and shaped me into a person that I am today. Transferring will open doors to new experiences, new challenges and it will be one step ahead
The majority of my academic tenure at San Antonio College has been on some kind of nonacademic probation period. Much of this stems from when I had enrolled at the college I was not aware of the direction I was headed or if I even had made the right decision to enroll into college period. Much of the SOBI reports filed on me many of them I had felt they were injustices and even unfair nonetheless even some of the sanctions. This is just my opinion but I felt I could have appealed many of them and possibly some would have had them overturned by making the choice to follow the appeal process.
When I first came to Kansas State University I thought I had it all figured out. Coming in as an Animal Science major I was more than certain I wasn't going to be one of the students who "changed their major at least once." But I did. My second semster of my first year I decided to take MC 110 as a replacement for a history requirement, little did I know that I would come to love learning about how mass media transformed over the years. From then on I made it priority to take a mass communications class. I was enjoying my mass communication classes more than my animal science classes and I knew I had to make the switch. So this past summer I switched to the A.Q. Miller School with the intent of focusing on advertising. MC 120 taught me a lot
