The reading the material of last week was very interesting, as it described the term “Helper” as of someone like counselor, psychotherapist, friends and family. It is so fascinating to have this type of description when it comes to counseling. The class discussion was very important as we get to see our first role play between the professor and a volunteer student, and the whole class observed their role play.
I chose NDSU because I feel like I was pretty well acquainted with the campus during my time in high school. Each summer, for FFA, my chapter, along with others from across the state, spent a week here competing in different agricultural competitions. Also, I talked with alumni from this nursing program, and they all said it was set up very well, and also put them on a track to getting a good job afterwards. When I came for a tour earlier this spring, I got to hear a speech from the Dean of nursing, and I just sort of felt like this was the right place. On a side note, I like being here because of the agricultural side of NDSU as well, even if I’m not necessarily going into a field pertaining to it. It seems more like home to me, when the person next to me, going into Vet Tech, rides horse as much as I did.
I decided to go to UT because I always wanted to go to this university for a long time. A lot of my family members have gone here. Therefore, it always seems the right choice to go here. Also, I came to UT because I wanted to get out of my comfort zone. Most people that graduate from my high school always ends up staying at home. However, I wanted to be different. Lastly, I came to UT because of the immense diversity and many different opportunities here.
It has every program I was looking for along with a gorgeous campus and it’s in close proximity to the sea.The innovative nature of UNCW is what really made me think UNCW is the school for me and give me an opportunity to explore different horizons and allow me to be
I find Brigham Young University most appealing because of its affordability, and the ability to live in a comfortable atmosphere where I will not meet the same constant challenges of my religious beliefs that I have had to face in high school. I want to be able to enjoy my college experience without having to deal with the social pressures of drinking, sexual immorality and drugs that are often tied with the college freshman experience. The environment at BYU will allow me to really focus on my
Most importantly, it has the major (Agricultural Science) that I want to take and study in. With an acceptance rate of 39%, it will be challenging to have a chance but I am willing to go through with it. Its location is also convenient that it is in Pomona, California. This school would be a good fit for my personal needs and career aspirations because it has the major I want, is locally efficient, and is one of the few universities that teaches students by having them do it themselves. I will pursue admission to this college and see where it leads me in the
Arizona State University has so far exceeded my expectation of what I had imagined of my college experience. My hometown is in extreme contrast to Arizona and this university. I was born and raised in a both sheltered and exponentially smaller town in Colorado called Monument. I was never exposed to a diverse culture before I had moved to Arizona. I was raised in a community of a synonymous religion, race, and over all culture. The summer going into my freshman year of high school, my older sister had decided that she wanted to attend Arizona State University, the school of her dreams. My family decided to make the move from Colorado to Arizona in order to grant my sister in-state tuition. My high school in Arizona was at first overwhelming
To me, Mount Wachusett Community College represents the ability for me to take on more challenging educational goals. College education is a privilege for me to have an opportunity to take advantage of means the future to me. Some may see it as the credits earned towards their 4-year college, but for me it means so much more than credits. It has provided me for an immense resource for learning and experimenting with topics I have an interest on. The professors are there to inspire me, helping me find my passion and myself. People will go out of their way to show you something and not in just a textbook, but in a real way. College has been introductions into how I can shape my future not just feel that my future solely belongs to my destiny. It is the first time in my life where I can have it my way and know that the work I have put in will be rewarding in fulfilling my future to come.
I am applying to the UWM, because it's a large school with outstanding credentials, a strong community and lots of school spirit. This is exactly what I'm looking for for in my college environment - a large population where I can meet new people every day, get involved in many activities, and build relationships with my professors. I also look forward to living in snow again - I moved from Denmark to California a few years ago, and I miss the winter weather!
Baylor University has been a dream of mine since I saw Brittney Griner and the Baylor Lady Bears go undefeated in 2012. The amount of school spirit and tradition Baylor offers in all of their sports really increased my interest. As a senior in high school school spirit is a tremendous deal and one of the qualities you look for in a school. Overall the number of traditions here will allow me to contribute in numerous ways to the community.
I selected Governors State University because I earned my Bachelors there and because of the small classes and the diversity of the school. The professors there help you through the courses and are dedicated to their students. I am captivated about succeeding, but even more passionate about Counseling. GSU has started me towards my career and I am positive it will lead me to where I belong in my field. As a student, I am an active participant in academic and clubs. My priority has always been to make good grades and learn in school. Since I was little I always been that person who helped others along their way.
Something that really sold me on the atmosphere at Illinois State University, was how many people there was and how they presented a more serene environment. On the other hand, Western Illinois University had an abundantly rigid atmosphere and I felt like it wasn’t good for me. Walking around the Illinois State University campus there were numerous people I saw that were wearing the Illinois State University colors, and that showed me they had pride in their school. By the same token, Western Illinois University did not have a large number of people who were wearing the school colors which struck me as odd because the majority of the colleges that I have visited had a myriad of people in their school colors. The atmosphere at Illinois State University seemed more active to me which I felt would give me an academic edge that could push me over the top. Western Illinois University did not really make me feel like I could do well there. At the end of the day I went with what I felt was the best
What do you think works in the world as far as beliefs go ? Do you believe in superstition? I do and this is my story of how it it all played out in Anderson field 1.
I enjoy watching Toronto FC in action at BMO Field or anywhere they play. I started to watch Toronto FC play when I was 9. My favorite game to watch was just happened recently, When TFC faced Philadelphia on October 3. I mostly enjoy watch Giovinco, Bradley, Altidore, and Osorio play. So I hope the best for you guys in the MLS playoffs. I will be watching you guys on my TV or will be at the game. Either way I will still be cheering you guys on.
On a cool, slightly windy evening in the beginning of April I was able to visit the Islamic Center of Johnson County. The unassuming building lacks characteristics one often associates with mosques, or even churches, or synagogues; if not for the sign indicating what is was I would have missed it. In 2002 it was decided due to the increasing number of Sunni Muslims moving to the suburbs that a closer, more convenient center of worship and education was needed since the next closest one was Kansas City, Missouri, just under twenty miles away. So in 2003 a building was purchased and at 9001 W 151st Street in Overland Park Kansas, the Islamic Center of Johnson County was officially made. After contacting the ICJC a few days prior, they invited me to observe Asr or their early evening prayer which on April 3, was at 6:05pm, though I arrived earlier and stayed later to ask questions; around seventy five minutes I’d say. An interesting side note, when I asked about what to wear, nothing was said about wearing a hijab or any sort of head covering. Nevertheless I wore a head scarf because I wanted to show as respect as I could and minimize my disturbance. My mother was gracious enough to come with me; she had
