Although I knew about the reputation of the University of North Florida (UNF) as one of the top Graphic Design & Digital Media Educational Facilities, I was not aware of all the services within the graphic design and digital media department. Both printmaking and screen printing, for instance peeks my interest because I want to further my education in graphic design and become well-known as a talented designer within the digital media arena. As a hard-working, determined, and persistent individual, who plans a head, meet deadlines, and set goals for my future. The graphic design and digital media program at UNF, stages my creativity, gift of art, and my amazing designs. In addition, the graphic design program at UNF affords major opportunities to broaden my creativity for future projects. Therefore, UNF is the university of my choice to earn my Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design.
The transition from being a child, dependent upon parents for everything, to an independent adult is one of the most stressful times a person will endure. Legally speaking, 18 is the age when you become an adult but the number doesn’t describe the responsibilities and independence you must take on. College is seen as the “big step” into the real world and many people struggle in choosing where to make their transition. I would like to take my “big step” by attending Florida Atlantic University.
“CLANG!” The cell door slammed open, snapping me from my dazed state. Two years ago, I was intoxicated to the point that I fell asleep on the basketball courts adjacent to my apartment, was arrested, and in the process of that arrest, ignored the lawful requests of the arresting officers. That night and the following morning I found myself alone in a cell with nothing but thoughts of incredulity, self-disappointment, and regret running through my mind as my future at Clemson University remained in question. In the morning, as I was being processed, one key idea, like a lighthouse’s beacon, flashed through my mind; that I was solely responsible for my decisions and the consequences they wrought. This is a fact of life that we are all taught from birth, but it was one I never fully appreciated until there were real-world consequences. That realization,
For the past ten months, I’ve been working as a Technical Helpdesk Technician for the largest school district in the Coachella Valley - Palm Springs Unified School District. The Education Technology and Information Systems (ETIS) department aims at improving the archaic pedagogy of teaching for staff and students. While also striving to support the district’s business needs and goals through implementation of modern technology. In the past ten months I have spoken with current cohorts, many of which are WGU alumni, who have given me the information and support to finish my collegiate studies. This has sparked my drive to continue education through Wester Governors University where I am asked the following question: “What is your Motivation
Instilled since childhood, we were all taught to pursue a college education. When asked about attending a postsecondary school or program, the hands of each student would shoot upwards into the air as if their dreams were already in reach. In fact, many students consider a college education worth the time, money, and energy since in the long run, the effort will pay off in the form of higher salaries, steadier careers, and an overall healthier standard of living. However, though I believe attending a college is important for all the same reasons, I also consider universities to have much more to offer than the amount my paycheck has to offer each week. Completing a postsecondary program is an opportunity that can provide the resources never
To begin, I consider myself as an auspicious individual who strives to achieve everyday success. Looking through the vast history of CAU, I immediately became aware of many accomplishments and what the university could offer me. Building a foundation in the face of adversity is a concept I am able to identify with all too well. I also noticed before Atlanta University and Clark College became one, AU held the title in being the “nation’s oldest graduate institution serving a predominantly African-American student body.” I instantly smiled, because I knew CAU keep a plan and a clue.
My knowledge and experience from attending CSUF and working in the retail/customer service industry has allowed me to better understand the field of Marketing. During my employment at Fullerton College Writing and Tutoring Center, I took on multiple roles. Aside from being the front desk receptionist, where I managed scheduling appointments, I also tutored students on computer fundamentals (MS Office programs, Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and emailing). I was responsible for creating flyers for its services and available workshops. I worked closely with the center’s coordinator in developing and posting flyers throughout the campus and on its website.
My excitement for Northwestern can be embodied in the words of Professors Julio Ottino and Gary Saul Morson, “It is in the augmentation of possibilities—the things we never knew—where remarkable opportunities exist at the intersection of engineering and humanities.” I learned first-hand the value of such collaboration across disciplines to solving global issues like HIV, working on my research at USC. The unique opportunity to combine the best of a Weinberg and McCormick education—one that emphasizes a broader definition of computer science to leverage the school’s other amazing departments, including Economics, Sociology, Kellogg, and even Journalism is extremely appealing. There, I can explore connections between these fields and discover new ones by pursuing unique courses like Social Network Analysis or Technology and Human Interaction and research at the renowned Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems. I’ve been corresponding with Professor Noshir Contractor, and I would be very excited to join his research team in investigating the dynamics of online social and knowledge networks.
I would like to study nursing at Notre Dame because it is a truly Catholic university where I can safely study nursing with the assurance that the ethics will follow the guidelines of the Catholic faith. Other universities may be prejudice against my Catholic faith when they assume the authority to teach me practises like abortion and euthanasia. If I went to another university, though I am able to stand up against their wrong teaching and defend my beliefs, I cannot assume that they would listen to me and I would be at risk of not passing as a competent nurse in their eyes. I do not have much experience when it comes to dealing with people who want to go through or perform morally wrong procedures and I would not know the right way to deal
Within the next two decades, NASA plans on executing the first manned mission to Mars in history, an event which the world would remember as more monumental than landing on the Moon. My entire life I have dreamed of being able to witness such a great leap in science. Growing up would watch movies like Star Wars, enthralled by the prospect of space travel and exploring new and exciting worlds. I loved reading science fiction, which allowed one to experience this thrill of exploration right alongside its characters and really see what it may feel like to take part in all the action and excitement. As a result, nothing has made me more enthusiastic than the fact that these first manned missions to other planets may happen right in a time when I could take part in them. In taking steps to fulfill this dream, I am applying to Carnegie-Mellon’s College of Engineering for a degree in mechanical engineering.
“Anyone can have a job, but not everybody can have a career." My sister instilled this notion in my mind causing me to make my education a main priority. Those wise words encourage me to be an excellent leader that may help this school keep its original mission of having educated the minds of students in all ways possible. I am committed to maintaining the relationship between God, friends, and family. Notre Dame provides various types of courses that establish a foundation for my growth and bonds of both education and faith.
My parents have always emphasized the importance of collecting and analyzing data. They once brought me to a stock exchange to watch how all the values change in real-time, and they explained that stock traders need to collect, analyze, and interpret millions of data points in order to understand whether the stock prices will rise or fall. Since then, they have inspired me to see things through the lens of a data scientist. Whether I am reading news articles online, following the stock market, or doing any other activity, I try to examine the underlying data to grasp an even deeper understanding. At North Carolina State University, I applied my passions toward a double major in statistics and economics. Both of these fields share a common principle of data-driven research and analysis. My goal is to continue my studies through the Advanced Analytics program at North Carolina State University.
1. I choose to participate in UYFA because it gave me the opportunity to improve on my leadership skills, to help my community as well as abroad and to continue strengthening my relationship with God to be the best man I can be headed into college.
I am applying myself to Indiana University’s apparel merchandising program because of my personal interests and passion for the apparel industry. My main focus in my studies here at IU is in business. I am a pre-Kelley student aspiring to be a marketing major with a minor in apparel. Indiana University is highly regarded for its business program, post-graduation is overly promising, and I was in search of a challenge when deciding on my major. Along with that, I still wanted a way to express my creativity, have change in my daily schedule, and I wanted to expand my knowledge on the fashion industry. Of course, I already considered myself quite knowledgeable on the topics of shopping, advertising, and clothing due to my frequent experiences
