My first year at Jamestown Community College as a student, I accomplished making Part-time Dean’s List two semesters back to back. Beginning college that year my personal goal was to strive making new habits to get the best experience out of college, while keeping up with my grades. I took classes to guide me through learning paths, but it they taught me ways of accomplishing what you wanted out of life and other significant information in classes. Prior, to entering to college I received a scholarship called Chautauqua Educational Opportunity to attend Jamestown Community College. It is significant to my study because in high school I constantly strived to push myself to get the grades I wanted to be proud of. I was part of a couple activities
During my first week at Langara College School I know from the start that school was not the one for me; therefore, I started asking around where becoming a nurse would be fast and easy to get into a school and could instantly get a job right after I graduate. From there I did some research on my own and ask previous students who graduated at Sprott Shaw Community College if all the extra money that I will be spending it in a private institution instead of a public institution is worth it. In the end, I do not regret anything going into Sprott Shaw College because this is the appropriate school for me and would recommend to anyone who is confused or lost what they want to do in the future.
My month here at Roanoke Valley Early College has been a great month because this place has way more to offer and the teachers are amazing- I just love learning new things. I met new people and I feel like everyday I get to experience college life. I feel like my best experience has to be just the growing up part. I know that I only have three more years in high school then I am off to college so I feel that this school is showing me how to grow up and the right way to do that. It just shows you a whole different light while you are basically an adult in college and you are you now finding out who you are as a person and so on.
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.
Again. It was the first day; it was the beginning. Again. On Tuesday, January 17, 2017, spring semester began at Nassau Community College. All morning long and, up until one p.m., events, both of my own making and those beyond my control, made me unhappy; within the classroom, however, within the classroom with you, I was happy.
There are two main goals that I would like to achieve by the end of my first semester of college at Youngstown State University. First, I would like pass all of my courses with at least a B. Second, I need to realize that I am paying for this expensive college education so I need to go to class regularly and be prepared to learn. These are my two personal goals that I wish to achieve by the end of my first semester of college at Youngstown State University.
Well I'm hoping to transfer within the month but I want to make sure that the credit that I do have will be transferred over, and to understand what classes that I would still have to make up, also that the 504 that I have now will be accepted, like I stated previously the school I went to before; I don't know how to put it in a polite way they basically screwed me over and I lost all of my junior year credits even though I had multiple 504 plans and Doctor notes. I would like to set up a meeting to talk more about what I would have to do to be a student at Deer Valley.
“Okay, do you have everything?” My mother seemed to ask me for the tenth time within five minutes. I rolled my eyes and nodded at the older woman.
My first year starting out at Edinboro University was very hard. Coming to college was very challenging. Edinboro University is known for being a school to accommodate students with disabilities. During my last year in high school Edinboro university had a representative come to my high school to talk to me regarding their school and why I should go there. My disability was asthma. I went to visit the campus and I saw how well they do accommodating students with disabilities. They also gave me a scholarship. My first year I was very nervous because this was a university it was not high school. Starting out it was very challenging.
Hello I know it is early but I was just wondering about how to go about becoming a student here next september. I am going to into my second year of Westchester Community College in Westchester. After my two years I would like to attend John Jay, what would be the steps in attending? Is their a certain grade I need to get in order to get in. Also while I was in high school I never took the SAT/ACT would that be a problem ?
My time at Michigan State University, so far, has been more than I could have hoped for. I’ve celebrated personal and academic victories. I’ve had the opportunity to attend every home football game with the Spartan Marching Band. Attended a victorious B1G Ten Championship game. Attended the Rose Bowl and Cotton Bowl and have more friends than any other time in my life. While sometimes it can be stressful to be a college student—managing due dates, social events, working, and maintaining focus away from Facebook and my phone—having a major I’m actually interested in, makes it all a lot easier. I have friends who, in my opinion, should not have the major they do. They hate all their classes, both pre-requisite and their actual major classes. To me, it seems a little ridiculous to continue spending money and time on an education in something you clearly have no interest in, not to mention planning for a career in the same field.
Although many schools claim to be the best, the University of Michigan truly holds this spot in my eyes. When talking to people about it, they always comment on how cold it is, and they wonder why people would ever want to live there. My answer is simple; I was born in Michigan and love everything about it. From the bitter cold, to the prestigious colleges, I take pride in being born here. When I researched great law schools and found one located in Michigan, my attention was immediately
I toured many Universities while searching for the perfect fit. I wanted an academic focused school, one with well know school spirit, and one where I felt like family. The University of Florida was the last school I toured. As soon as I walked under the Plaza of Americas and into the stadium I knew. I felt a sense of community and belonging. I felt like the University of Florida could be my home, and that was something I hadn’t felt at any other campus. It was an enthusiastic welcome, a welcome to the swamp, and a welcome to the gator nation. The University of Florida has become my home away from home.
