I was very excited when I saw this essay prompt because diversity is actually one of the main criteria that drew me into NC State. All throughout my schooling life, for as long as I can remember, I never attended any schools that were diverse. There was always one extremely predominant race or gender, and it’s something that truly disturbed me. I am excited to attend a college that is so diverse in many aspects, that I will be able to benefit from in multiple different ways. I will be able to learn and understand new perspectives which will help me gain an open mind and heart to be able to accept different kinds of people. I will be able to familiarize myself with different backgrounds and cultures, because I am so accustomed to my own, I
East Carolina University is and has always been a dream school for many students including myself. I have grown up hearing about the University and it is nothing short of spectacular. Many family members of mine have attended East Carolina, and I have always pictured myself at this school. It would be an honor to be a pirate. Throughout high school I have struggled in Science and Math. I know I could have done better in high school but in life you can always do something better, im eager to push myself more and work harder than ever to succeed as an adult, if given the chance There are many times when I should I have put school in front of my extra curricular activities such as dancing, art, work, tennis, and swimming. However, all of those
The diversity of NC State would benefit me by allowing me to experience new relationships and skills. I learn and develop through my experiences, and the mixture of the campus, culture, and nearby cities would give me that growth. These new opportunities
Growing up in a multiracial, multicultural household I have been fortunate enough to experience diversity at a young age. NC State’s diverse campus would expose me to different cultures, religions, and ethnic groups, all focused on enhancing the legacy of NC State. Exposure to these different lifestyles would increase my knowledge about different issues minorities from around the world have been faced with. The diversity would allow me to help implement new ways of increasing diversity throughout society, and college campuses, allowing NC State to be a model for the world. Campus diversity is important in making sure all students are comfortable in their learning environment. Being able to share my life experiences and background would allow
My Northern State University (NSU) American Indian academic advisor, Lara Nelson has inspired me and encouraged me for the two years of my collegiate career to be extremely involved and active in leadership roles. She is the leader of the Native American Student Association at NSU as well, and has encouraged me to be an active participant in the association and consequently, I was elected as the treasurer of the association in September 2016 and I also serve as student advisor on the NSU American Indian Advisory Committee which serves under the direction of the university’s Provost. In these positions, it is necessary for me to communicate and organize so that we can fulfill the organizations goals. We have been instrumental in helping shape
Coming to Virginia Commonwealth University with a major in social work has been one of the best things I have done in the year of 2016. I can remember awaiting my acceptance into Virginia Commonwealth University and instantly choosing to attend. For the remainder of my senior year of high school, I couldn’t wait to pack up and leave for VCU. Before I knew it, it was August 20, 2016, move-in day. Aside from leaving my parents and hometown, I was a bit upset about having to quit my job, the anxiety of being a broke college student hit me before I even stepped on campus. On move in day I was a bit anxious and a little nervous to leave my parents but at the same time I was ready to leave and explore something new on my own.
Living in Chicago in the 21st century is not a necessarily easy thing. Everyday, I live with the fear that a loved one of mines could be taken away from me at any moment. Or the fact that my life could be taken away just from walking out of my front door. I dream of going to college and making something of myself. Often, other students tell me I can not achieve my dreams because I am an African American student. I pushed and struggle so hard to prove these students wrong. Because I am African American, many people view me as just a number. And that number is 33.1%; which is the college graduation rate for Black males. I would like to be one of the many people that will increase this percent. Recently, I was given the opportunity to take part
UNC Wilmington has been my top pick for the college I want to attend to obtain my Bachelor’s degree in Business ever since I was a Junior in high school. I applied for the fall 2016 to spring 2017 semester my senior year of high school and was not accepted into UNC Wilmington. I knew I had a big decision to make and I needed to figure out what I was going to do since I was not accepted into UNC Wilmington. I had been accepted to other universities and I could have easily attended one of them instead but I knew where I really wanted to be was UNC Wilmington. I finally made the decision to take one year at Cape Fear Community College and work hard to get my GPA up to where it needs to be in order to be considered for the fall 2017 semester. I realized that
Today was a great day, it was time for someone to make a change. Four African American college students were brave enough to start the change and they were Blair, Richmond, McCain and McNeil, they attend the same college as I do, but I don’t really talk to them as I might get caught from the professors or even my peers and can get a beaten.
Hello I am Rey Rodriguez, and I’m still currently a bit undecided on what I’m majoring in. I love teaching and all things entertainment such as acting,singing,and production so I may start looking towards a major in which I can do a little bit of it all. I’m looking into hopefully transferring to Cal State Northridge or possibly Cal State Long Beach by next fall.Sociology has always been a subject I have found very interesting so I’m hoping on furthering what I already know and look forward to learning things I didn't know. A big part of me is music, I’m constantly listening to music or singing to myself. I enjoy going to live shows and concerts that is definitely a big hobby of mine, I also enjoy just hanging out and going out to eat with
When I originally set out to join the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, I really did not know much about them. While I was at first hesitant to attend the induction ceremony, in the end I was very glad that I chosen to go, for it proved to be the perfect place to learn everything I needed to know. From meeting the officers to knowing who sponsors the NSCS, the induction ceremony was packed full with information.
During my time at A&M, I was involved with The Big Event as a committee member. The Big Event at A&M is the largest one day student run service project in the U.S. where over 20,000 students come together to serve residents in College Station. I worked with the Operations committee, where I helped organize our fundraising events and managed tool distribution on the day of the event. I also led a group of staff assistants who interacted with community members and checked job sites.
Being in a diverse community as strong as NC State, it would definitely help add to my college experience. Being on the North Carolina State University college campus with a mix of students with different backgrounds and different interests will educate me and allow me to meet new people I would not have met if I had gone to a less diverse college. Attending a college with a diverse student body would also give me the opportunity to learn about different hobbies, religions, ethnicities, or backgrounds I have not been exposed to before. I could truly learn a lot from this
Entering into Wichita State University I knew it was going to be an adventure freshman year, but I thought it was going to be completely difficult with no time to fool around. Well, my prediction was half way right and wrong. College turned out to be more adventure with a splash of difficulty at times. To get the full feel of the college lifestyle I decided to live on campus in the dorms. In the long run it could have been a mistake, due to the fact that my expenses would have deducted significantly. However, in the future I hope a job with good pay gets me on the right track to take care of the debt. Enough of the debt, let us talk about the 5 main aspects I love about Wichita state university.
