Growing up with high expectations my mind has always been set on the idea of college. However when thinking of the “right” college for my future, I never knew If I would be able to fully commit and choose which one was best for me. I wanted something that would be comfortable for me that also meets my criteria that would make the college transition a bit easier. Since I’m going into something new, my decision would end up being based on the class sizes, the costs being affordable, the majors and degrees available for Nursing, and the location and how close it is to my family. It was a hard decision however one school had it all, which is why I’ve decided to further this chapter of my life at West Texas A&M University.
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.
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
Hi, I am Anna Wysmierski, and I live in Farragut. I am originally from Elyria, Ohio, but my family moved here to Tennessee when I was eight years old. My summer was busy, but it was very fun. I spent the first half of my summer at East Tennessee State University participating in the Governor’s School for the Scientific Exploration of Tennessee Heritage and the second half going on college visits and doing summer swimming at Village Green. Regarding work, I worked a couple of lifeguard shifts at my neighborhood pool this summer. Next year, I plan on majoring in either math or actuary science at the college I end up attending. Honestly, I do not know much about personal finance, so most topics will be new and interesting for me to
Where do I even begin? Well, first off…. THANK YOU! You have no idea the impact you have made on not only my life, but so many others. Speaking on behalf of my peers, you truly are a one-of-a-kind and remarkable professor. In my time at Eastern Kentucky University as an undergrad in the History Department, I had my fair share of good, bad and okay professors. You are in none of those categories because you created one for yourself.
My experience at North Carolina A&T has been great in many ways. I appreciate the activities offered on campus, the football games, and also the parties! There are only a few things I dislike about the school which is the food and the housing. I wish there were different alternatives to choose from in the dome, like Chinese food, Zaxby's, or KFC. I absolutely hate having a roommate, since I have never had to share a room before. If the size of my room was bigger, I wouldn’t mind. My first choice was to attend Clark Atlanta University, but I received my scholarships to late. I have been trying to decide whether or not I should transfer to Georgia, which I have not made up my mind yet. All in all, I believe NCAT may be the right school for me.
I am a junior majoring in computer science. I earned my Associate of Science at El Paso Community College in Fall 2015 and my high school diploma at TMECHS in Spring 2016. This is my first year at Texas Tech University. I am required to take this course, but I’m looking forward to learning how to respond to situations that aren’t so black and
On September 21st, a group of classmates and I joined Dmitry for a Tennessee soccer game versus Auburn. We met up at the college of business around 6:30 pm and he drove us over to the soccer stadium. Over the course of the night we talked about campus life, got concessions, and, most importantly, cheered on the Lady Vols!
I am Micah Head, and I don't know what I want to major in at this point. I really enjoy working with children, and I volunteer with our special needs class at our church. I also work at a daycare. I don't think I want to teach in a classroom, but I am still not sure exactly how I will work with children. This is the end of my first year at Jeff
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.
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.
By participating in my First Year Aggie Connection, which is Cultural Exchange: International and domestic students, I have many good opportunities to listen to stories of students who were from many different cultures. I learned we grew up different cultural but we all have a passion for study and student life in UC Davis. Also, I learned that many domestic students are interested in foreign countries’ cultures or people from foreign countries. So, as I participated in the Connection, I have come to feel that I am not alone, and there are many students who might be interested in my experience as an international student. Also, during the meeting, some members shared their experiences in Davis such as club activities, internship, and
There are tons of “10 things college has taught me”-type articles out there, but I wanted to make my own piece. Moving away from home this school year to attend a university turned out to be a lot different than I imagined. While attending the Early College Program back home in high school pushed me two school years ahead of my peers was great (financially and time wise), it has made my “freshman experience” here at Florida State University, a very different experience than any other freshman would go through. The pressure amounted on my shoulders sometimes became unbearable. Out of everything, I first learned that I have to take everything one step at a time. While I did decide to slow down my class load, I came across a number of other things
The first week of graduate school has now come to an end and reflecting back on this week makes me both excited and nervous. Looking back to the summer and my prediction of what graduate school and what I actually have experienced are very different. Everything from starting my assistantship at the College of Dentistry, being a house director for PIKE and classes just seems to evoke my passions for student affairs and student at the university.
