Likewise, creating a cover letter taught me many useful strategies that I will definitely put to use when it comes time for me to submit an official cover letter to a company. One of the biggest things that I have learned from taking this course is that good content is more important than sophistication. Both are very important in essay writing, but it is more important to have clear content and material so that the audience can understand your position. Last year, I always seemed to lose points on essays for not having sophisticated enough prose, so I came into this class under the impression that the most important things in a
I attended college right after college because I wanted to add to what I’ve already learned in high school. Also I knew what I wanted to do and be in life. The things that was taught in high school was still be fresh to me. I was one of the fortune students who qualified for TOPS and federal grants to pay for my pricy tuition. I think if I would have had to pay out of pocket for tuition, I would have been one of those who would have set out for a while before attending.
I highly suggest that you complete your required classes by the end of your sophomore year. It will be beneficial to choose from more desired classes junior year because you are finally given that opportunity. The electives you choose can help discover your passions and your career path. So if you choose to apply to college, you have background information from your electives that could prepare you for your major. If you feel overwhelmed, you could choose to take a study hall to relieve stress.
I had a resume that I made for a high school class, so it was a start but it would not have gotten me passed the first round of reviews if I applied for a job where they had a lot of applicants. After the session, I went and completely redid my resume. I think I would now get an interview. I added a lot of new things like experience that include unpaid like my SAT in high school for our middle school agriculture classes. The next class, I hope to attend would be the interview class.
Introduction When I first saw the syllabus of this class, I was looking forward to doing the service learning project as I have only been to only one in the past. I believe that service learning is important as part of a quality college education because I believe that people learn best through experiences. Also, service learning is important as part of a quality college education because, during the service, there will be numerous opportunities for students to learn new things. For instance, I am a business major student but I know about the history of the Gold Park and the benefits of the plants there through the service learning project. Now, I also learn about the history of the Coast Salish Tribe and their culture.
The year and a half I spent after high school wondering what I should do with my life was a pretty low point in my life. I was confused and most of the time thought poorly of myself.

With the ability of being organized and self-disciplined will assist me in everything I do in college and at
From the three articles, Dweck’s mindset relates to me more compared to the two. Dweck an acclaimed educator, psychologist, and a professor, believes a person’s mindset is the most accurate measure of the future success. Dweck in the article shows best strategies that work for students in college under stress. Her strategies do show how students differ in school and what kind of student is best believed to graduate from college and have a stable career ahead. In her article, she first shows how college students differ by introducing the two types of mindset, the “fixed mindset” and the “growth mindset.” A fixed mindset is the one where the person believes that the someone’s personal qualities are carved in a stone, and the person who also always has an urgency to prove themselves over and over (6).

I came to Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) after transferring from Gallaudet University. I found that what I was required to take a pre-course before taking the real credit courses at TNCC called English Fundamentals 1. So, I took the class that my counselor and my interpreter, who worked in 25 years at TNCC, recommended me to meet Ms. Dubbé. This semester I have improved my reading and writing skills. I am a better student because I have learned effective strategies and pondered over my future goals.

My first year at Brookdale I joined the ALP program because I didn’t get a good grade on the Accuplacer. I decided to join this program so I wouldn’t have to take a English course next semester and be so behind. I joined Brookdale because I didn’t know what I wanted to do as a major and also didn’t know what four year college to go to. I didnt think Brookdale was going to all that great so I didn’t really want to go, but it was the best decision I made. Going to Brookdale was a good choice for me.
Finding motivation to attend college is easy, keeping the motivation to finish is the difficult part. I decided to enroll in college to earn my Bachelor’s degree in Business with a concentration in Finance. I hope that the degree will give me the opportunity to apply for a better position within the organization that I currently work for. A secondary goal of returning to school is to demonstrate to my son that attending college is required for many jobs and that returning to school as an adult has various difficult challenges. I have been working for the past nine years as an Assistant Financial Officer and am highly competent at my job.
Receiving college for free through the ECHS program and having the opportunity to emerge from high school with an Associate degree is the motivation for why I will be attending college throughout high school, I am extremely grateful and lucky to have the opportunity to attend college in high school as not all are as fortunate.

Beginning college is one of the utmost significant decisions that will impact my life forever and to be completely truthful, I am extremely nervous
