When my physics professor told me that, I was rather upset than happy. I am here to learn, not to only know couple of equations for the test. College classes are designed to challenge students, not to give easy A’s. My time with Harford Community College was great but not challenging enough. I desire more hands-on experience and research projects, which my community college both lack of. This is when I realize that I need to transfer to somewhere that would give me a lot of opportunities to shine.
This year, 2016 and 2017, was my first time at Early College High School. I was very worried and scared at the beginning of the year, but now, I am more comfortable at this school. From re-dos to essays, I have learned a lot this year from my English class. There are many things that I will forget, however, there are also memories and actions I will keep. Lastly, there is advice that I will provide for the upcoming sophomores.
In the fall of 2005, I took my first steps onto the campus of Appalachian State University with my sister who was entering as a freshman. One of my most vivid memories from my childhood is walking hand in hand with my then eighteen year old, wide eyed, and prospective sister into the Watauga dorms. Afterwards, as we left down King Street, I distinctly remember gazing back towards the magnificent North Carolina mountains and yearning to stay. Even at the age of five, I knew that one day I would follow in her footsteps and become an Appalachian Mountaineer.
When I was a senior in high school my father had his second heart attack and had to have open heart surgery. Upon Graduation from High School in May 2016, I made the decision to move in with my Father who is a sixty-eight-year-old Disabled Vietnam Veteran with many health issues. During my Freshman year at Pearl River Community College, his health had declined and the doctors discovered that he had an aneurysm in his chest and blockages in his legs. Thankfully after his surgery was completed and he was able to come back home, I was to be on break so I could stay with him and help with whatever he needed. I am one of six children and have chosen to take care of him and live there in lieu of working outside of College. The two oldest of my
During my high school days and the last few semesters when I was at Sandhill Community College I was way too comfortable. I slacked off and all I was thinking about was just getting doing the minimum to just be finished already. Recently, I was pushed by the looks of my grades that I just needed to get things done; I wanted to be free, not to do my best, just to finish so I could say I passed all my classes. Now I realize life isn’t about just getting by, but about bringing all you have to be able to become successful in what needs to be done. In the next paragraphs I will explain what I expected to happen, what actually happened, what I learned, and how I will apply what I learned to future plan.
Upon my return to Penn State for my junior year, I soon came to realize that I need to find out a way to realize my dream. Based on some research I did, U-Mich just come straight to my mind, and I firmly bought a ticket to Ann Arbor. When I visited Ann Arbor this summer, I was impressed by the breath of offering of LSA, especially the Statistics departmen
Throughout high school, getting involved was easy. Joining clubs and running for leadership positions was not intimidating, because I was comfortable with my surroundings. Playing in and attending varsity athletic events make up some of my fondest memories. Beyond extracurriculars, I was able to navigate high school with the same close group of friends. No matter what the occasion, there were always familiar faces surrounding me.
After graduating from TCU I hope to discover that I am equipped with a superb education and that I am more than qualified to compete for employment in the global market. The internships I serve, while attending TCU, would have made my resume stand out from the rest. I would hope to discover that because of my experiences at TCU, I am able to do great things throughout the world, connecting with the very accomplished alum from TCU. I also believe that having attended TCU would only continue to strengthen my Christian
I am from a small town called Boring, Oregon. However, I have lived in five states since then. My most recent home is Arlington, Virginia. I am an Elementary Education Major. I was homeschooled until college and studied at NOVA community college for one year prior to starting at Concordia. Along with SCI 110, I am taking Art 121, EDU 199, LDR 198, MTH 133 and REL 221. Five years after college I would like to be finished with my master's degree and working full time as a 1st or 2nd-grade teacher. What makes me special is that I have moved every two years since I turned eight, that I have four older brothers, that I have been to 48 of the 50 US States. The people I grew up with and the sites I have seen
My freshman year at Community College of Philadelphia was interesting and a great learning experience. Being a criminal justice major we have requirements that is needed to be completed. I tried to take the easy way out and it backfired on me. I took SOC 101 online and the professor taught me a lesson of tough love. He failed me and told me “come back when you’re serious.” I was embarrassed and disappointment in myself. Since that day I took college seriously and every experience been good.
For as long as I can remember I have dreamed about becoming a student at the University of Arizona. I was born in Tucson and as a little kid I would always look at “A” mountain and believed that one day I would be a wildcat. Though I was not raised in Tucson I lived fairly close, I come from a small town Mammoth, Arizona. Many people from this town after they graduate from high school usually get trapped into working at the Asarco mine. I knew that I did not want to work there.
I think I substitute taught for your great ESOL students on Friday, November 17, 2017, and that day was my first time at Northwestern High School. I apologize for not contacting you sooner, but I accidentally forgot to mention what I am writing now.
I could make this essay a sob story but i am not going to do that i am going to give you no other option but to accept me into your school. My mom always told me to do what is right, and by attending this school i feel it would be the right choice for me to further my education beyond high school at Palm Beach State College. I am full of energy and eager to learn about my new career path towards my future life, and this could all be the beginning of it all right here at your school. I am willing to keep an open mind about anything the admissions office has to say and anything they are willing to offer. Once I get accepted in this college my life will start to unfold right before eyes.
I begin my college career at Armstrong Atlantic State University in August of 2010. Of course as any incoming freshman, you struggle with the adjustments of being on your own and self-sufficient course learning. My freshman year to me was more of an adjustment to the true courses load. During my sophomore year, I became more focused and understood what was require to get the right grades. It was towards the end of my sophomore year that I had to withdraw for a semester due to my father’s diagnosis of cancer. My parents felt it was best to help out financially and to lend a hand with the care of my father. At this point of time, my life and education endeavors was put on hold for the sake of my father. I decided to go back to college after
I have had a great experience while attending Wallace Community College. I chose to come to Wallace because I got a full scholarship to attend and it was closer to home. One experience that I have had here is the teachers and faculty. All the teachers that I have had the pleasure of being in their classrooms have been nothing but exceptional. All of them have taught me valuable information that I will be able to use not only in progressing in my academic career but also in life. Every teacher always goes above and beyond to make their students feel welcomed and that you have a reason for being here. Secondly, another experience that I have had is the variety of classes you are able to take while attending Wallace. Even though it is a community
