The way I was raised has influenced me to be confident, mature, and selfless to not only get through life, but to succeed in it. I make it my obligation to signify the four pillars of National Honor Society everywhere I go. I know that I am evaluated on my character and abilities in and out of school. That makes me responsible to represent not only SHDHS, but my family, my clubs, and my sports
Integrity is fundamental to everything we do in college, I don’t think we can have genuine learning without integrity. The important thing about academic integrity is that’s what learning is all about. It provides an opportunity for an academic institution to come together as a community, because it provides the legitimacy to the pursuits of all students. For example, would you like to go to a doctor who
Marywood University incorporates a mission statement where they base a campus state of well-being off a list of core values including, empowerment, service, excellence, catholic identity and respect. We are working towards a goal in a community at Marywood that presents these core values as a set of words to live by on campus, but in our hearts we have to connect meaning to them. Sometimes, it might be hard as a college freshman to know these words by their definition but rather what they mean to them and how they can actually put them into action. The book “A Good Man” and the speech “This is Water” represent the Marywood core value of Excellence in two completely different ways in which a Good Man represents the physical actions of Excellence
However, it is also important to consider the varying degrees in the value of a liberal arts education across the globe. This is dependent on the different backgrounds, cultures and conditions. In the case study of Singapore, competitiveness is a known and common trait. This stemmed from the government’s continued and persistent emphasis on progress and development since the early days of independence. As such, people looked towards avenues which could bring about tangible results such as economic growth hence placing importance on the Science.
There are countless reasons why having a college education is so imperative. Being a single mom and role model to my son, the possible opportunities and experiences, and simply the knowledge of having a college education are my top three reasons for continuing my education. Being able to support my son and myself and having a stable career is the long-term goal of my college education. The possible opportunities and experiences that come with having a college education will be my reward for working so hard. Finally, the knowledge I will obtain through my college education is the key to everything in my
Since I was a little girl I have always been told to be on top of my studies and to go do what I love most. However, with college I am able to take on and obtain new knowledge to further my studies and do what I love most. I see college as another stepping stone into a great life and future. Being able to attend college is a blessing, this will help me understand and see the different perspective of the world around me. The final reason that led me to college is to experience the" life of as a college student".
“If you’re going to do something, then do it right.” This quote is a great representation of my attitude towards my education. With that, I always make sure that I excel in all my classes and join organizations that will benefit me in the long run. Knowing that being a possible member of the National Honor Society will highlight my academics, leadership, character, and service, I believe that NHS will also give me the opportunity to shape myself and continue going in the direction of a successful future. Primarily, my background has pushed me to work well and take on the rigorous challenge of applying for NHS. Living in a small province in the Philippines, it was very difficult for my family to gain an education.
To assure it is sustainable, we have trademarked the project, worked with community leaders in Charlotte for funding, construction assistance and shipping. While ContainIt continues to help others, it has left an indelible mark on each of us involved. Not only is ContainIt transforming the community of Pine Ride, but it has opened the hearts and minds of students, who are now committed to participating in positive and lasting change for a lifetime. I enter college more confident in my abilities and look forward to Appalachian State University to afford me unique opportunities to continue discover how my talents and interests may intersect with service to others. I look forward to the opportunity to be an active member of a University that embraces the same mind and spirit of Covenant Day, a community that fosters academics and conscience.
An advanced degree is a potent symbol of commitment. The pursuit of college education requires the ability to explore ambiguities, to research and to defend positions on a variety of subjects and to express this information cogently. Each course of study mandates completion of peripheral learning activities necessary for comprehensive education. This type of learning is possible to attain independently.

The final formal theory that I have found influential is the Ethics of Justice. Shapiro and Gross (2013), defined justice as a “mode of choosing that is universal, a rule of choosing that we want all people to adopt always in all situation”. This acts as a platform for the Ethics of Justice which deals with laws, rights, and policies, and “implies procedures for making decisions that respect the equal sovereignty of the people” (Shapiro & Gross, 2013, p. 22). My personal philosophy aligns to this feature because I find that lawful behaviors make a safe and equitable environment more obtainable. Furthermore, by teaching students these concepts, they will become more concerned for the “welfare of the school as a community, a concept that extended beyond the school’s walls and into the local environment” (Shapiro & Gross, 2013,
