I have fallen in love with UNCW after first-hand seeing it for myself last summer. I know a lot of alumni from UNCW and have heard nothing but positive things about the school, teachers, and its courses. I am interested in majoring marketing or business and UNCW excels in both of these areas for me. In addition, it provides many courses that assist me in meeting my goals for my career. I would love to attend UNCW because it is close to my hometown but also far enough to where I can be an independent. Not only do I believe the University of North Carolina Wilmington is the right fit for me and my future career but also has every aspect that I am looking for in a college. It has the perfect location, the perfect size, very affordable, and the
Yosemite National Park, is a beautiful piece of nature it is a 195 mile nature getaway from the urban life that is lived San Francisco, CA and 315 miles away from the fast pace and overwhelming life that is lived in Los Angeles CA. This place is like no other in the beauty of its nature. The park is “747,956 acres, and is the home to hundreds of wildlife species and thousands of Yosemite plants” (U.S. Nat. Park Service). Yosemite is known for so many beautiful features, from its granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, giant sequoia groves and biological diversity. And also for its two rivers which are the Tuolumne and Merced rivers. These rivers begin in the park and flow as far as west to the
Yosemite National Park is a spectacular natural wonder. Outdoor enthusiasts of all ages flock to this area of California every year. Since the parks establishment, it has been a worldwide tourist attraction. Upon entering the park, travelers are greeted by marvelous, majestic views. Once in Yosemite, serenity can be found. Yosemite is decidedly one of the nation’s vast beauties.
For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to attend UNC Chapel Hill. The only problem with going to a big university is the money and maintaining a certain grade point average. Chapel Hill is located near Raleigh, Durham which
I would like to attend Florida State University for multiple reasons. First of all, I already feel a personal connection with Florida due to the fact that it is my home state where I was born. The sense of familiarity gives me comfort. I also have family that lives in Florida if anything were to happen or go wrong. I would like to pursue a major in Arts and Sciences and also have a minor in psychology.
Yosemite National Park, founded in 1890, thanks largely to the efforts of John Muir, is 748,000 acres situated in the Sierra Nevada mountain range within the state of California. The park, home to over 400 species of animals, five separate forests and zones, eight types of rocks and cliffs, and nine waterfalls, attracts many visitors. The park’s landscape changes with the seasons; there is also a variety of activities that visitors can participate in depending on the season and weather. The National Park Service strives to preserve Yosemite; it is home to many threatened and endangered species, wildflowers that only exist in Yosemite, and all the park’s geological features and natural beauty should not be harm by man.
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
I could take advantage of research facilities like the Woodman Astronomical Library and enroll in classes that explore everything from the physics of our solar system to the history of our universe. I see myself joining interdepartmental clubs like Astronomy Club and Women in Physics and I hope to someday be a part of a research opportunity like the renowned IceCube Neutrino Observatory. In addition to working towards my major, I am thrilled at the prospect of being able to take the wide variety of classes available at UW-Madison. Throughout high school I have taken classes based solely on exploring new subjects for fun and to potentially discover a new interest, and I hope to do the same at Madison. I could fulfill my desire to connect with my Slavic roots and study Czech. I could empower myself with a class on gender and women’s studies, question my existence with a class on the meaning of life, overcome my stage fright with a class on music performance. With my aspirations held high and seemingly endless opportunities ahead of me, the sky’s the limit. At the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with my trumpet and my telescope angled high, not even the sky would be the
Not even a mile above the valley floor there are three stunning waterfalls. At this time there were many awe-inspiring natural wonders like Niagara Falls becoming popular American tourist destinations. There were many early settlers that tried to make profit from the wonders of Yosemite Valley, by charging tourists with expensive fees. Thanks to Albert Bierstadt’s popular paintings ,and Carlton Watkin’s photos, Americans who would never see the valley in person could see it in paintings and photos. These people could call for its preservation from crash commercial development.
In my highschool career I spent most of my time at the pool as a swim instructor and lifeguard and surprisingly this was what showed me that caring for children was my passion. By working with these kids and learning how to care for them it only gave me more confidence in my decision to become a pediatrician.This and my personal experience with children really opened my eyes to how what I truly wanted to do going into college was right in front of me. I plan to major in Biology and have a minor in Psychology.UNC Wilmington has an excellent Biology program that I would love to take a part of. Going this to university would be a fantastic opportunity because it is known for its diversity, affordability, and highly ranked programs. When I found UNCW I thought It would be a perfect fit for me.
In regards to the geologic components of Yosemite National Park, it essentially has two main parts. The first part is the deposition and deformation of the metamorphic rocks and the emplacement of the granitic rocks during the Paleozoic and Mesozoic periods. The second part is the uplift, erosion, and glaciation that took place with the rocks during the Cenozoic period. Yosemite National Park is relatively helpful in regards to observing the display of its geologic changes. When the Cretaceous period was ending which was roughly 65 million years ago, the granitic core of the range started to become
According to Larry Beck in his work, “The National Park Centennial: What the Parks Mean to Us Today,” Yosemite is far more significant than just a pretty place to visit. This national park holds a great significance in the hearts of Americans, for it represents the strength and determination of our nation amidst the crises which were brought on by the
For many young people the summer season includes plans to travel the world, take leaps in life, explore new things, and make lasting friendships. For some people summer means traveling across the country from Maine to California. Residing in one of the most beautiful places on Earth, Yosemite National Park. Allana Hall describes Yosemite as “a tight knit community nestled in tree covered wilderness that leaves you speechless and wanting more”. Yosemite is a unique city-like national park that lies far from most other civilization but is bustling with guests and locals within the walls of the valley. Allana states “everyone stays in canvas tents, were charged $7 a week for rent. Living here is simple, and everyone is like family. There is a
Spending time in nature is very important in order to know how and why we should protect it. The best way to enjoy nature is to have no interferences from the modern world, the government has places like these called wilderness areas, where there is no human interference allowed except for hikers, planes aren't even allowed to fly over. Wilderness areas are also great for providing healthy ecosystems for the animals that live there. This resolution would expand the wilderness areas inside existing national parks and create wilderness areas inside national parks that don't already have wilderness areas.
Yosemite national park faces many issues being a national reserve, and one of them is the
