I believe that the mission of a student ambassador is to promote the vision, growth and quality of University of Maryland, by optimizing the experience of current students, prospective students and special guests. I would like to be a student ambassador primarily because I want to get more involved with the university; not to mention the positive impact it will have on my CV. I would also gain experience in public speaking, building friendships with fellow ambassadors and develop my leadership skills. Furthermore, this offers a responsibility that can be both challenging and extremely rewarding. As a student ambassador, I will actively participate, inspiring pride in Maryland University, upholding university’s reputation and serving as liaisons between students and administration.
Posted on the website and around campus, Marywood’s core values are just words to some people. Excellence, in this case, was shown not only as someone’s life in Mark Shriver’s,“ A Good Man” but also as a perceived way of thinking in David Foster Wallace’s graduation speech, “This is Water”. When we can apply excellence and relate to yet another outstanding theme in our everyday lives, we no longer have the “word” excellence we have the envisionment of a power above ourselves, one of the core values to incorporate into our day to day lives in the Marywood Community and
This framework will allow me to better understand “the complexity of students’ experiences with power, privilege, and oppression” (Patton, Renn, Guido, & Quaye, 2016, p. 31). During my undergraduate years at Loyola, I worked in the office of First and Second Year Advising as a Peer Advisor in the University 101 classroom. I taught a Bridge to Loyola course in which many of my students were first-generation students of color. Looking back on my experience, I now realize how I could have used the framework of intersectionality, or Critical Race Theory (CRT), in order to give these students a more meaningful classroom experience. CRT acknowledges that those in student development must “consider their own race and its intersections with other social identities […] as well as the social identities of research participants” (Patton et al., 2016, p. 28).

As a student at Iowa State University, I have been introduced to a broader realm of English mechanisms at the professional level. During the semester, I was able to apply the skills I have learned in this class and others to my papers. While working with MLA guidelines, I was better able to clearly define my sources during research as well as better organize my own WOVE articles. Throughout my English 250 process, I have learned a fair amount about the basics of English at the college level. As a general education requirement, English 250 has provided me with a basis of knowledge as it pertains to effectively summarizing articles, websites, and other forms of communication found in our modern world.
But with the work ethics I have that I’ve learned throughout high school, and will continue to learn in college will help me accomplish these much easier. Other goals that I will have is to help my family with their goals. Helping family and friends is a big part in this world today. By helping my family and friends they will help me
Assessing student’s social responsibility and civic learning Reinventing commitment have been started by campuses as to public services through central coordination of community partnership activities, support for curricular-based service learning activities, and recognition of civic-minded practice in evaluation and promotion of faculty work. Student who enrol into colleges are also eager to engage themselves into civic learning. There was a survey known as the Freshman Survey (TFS) which is administered by Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) has record of students who indulge themselves in community service or volunteer work as a part of experience since 1990. The trend had increased over two decades and in 2011, their involvement
From January 2016 till present, I am specialized in two modules SD (Sales and Distribution) and QM (Quality Management). My responsibilities are gathering requirements for upgrading functionalities, analysing and proposing solution, designing business flow, data flow for integration, performing system configuration and key users training. My university studies and work experience give me a broad understanding of the business world, and it is because of this perspective that I have decided to focus on operations management and organization studies for my future career. In preparation for going abroad, I have been studying English intensively, and I recently earned excellent GMAT and IELTS scores, as shown on my CV. Because business management is an inherently international field, I know that I could benefit greatly by undertaking further studies overseas, which is why I am applying to your
Quantitative Research Methods – Prof. Cheung Shu Fai Critical Review 1 Dorji Wangchuk - yb67301 Rationale This is a critical review of the article, A Comparison of Student Achievement and Satisfaction in an Online Versus a Traditional Face-to-Face Statistics Class by Jessica J. Summers, Alexander Waigandt and Tiffany A. Whittaker (2005). I chose this paper as I am currently helping the Department of Communication in designing an online module for undergraduate studies. Our concern is how best to deliver the course using the best technology and techniques available. Besides that, I am also a firm believer in the power and the affordances of technology to address some issues
In my activities outside of work, I will also be depending on others, similar to KOPPI, a political awareness club, and Greener Greenwood, activities that rely on multiple people to do their jobs. Knowing how to be cooperative as a team is essential to the success in almost all examples; the Honors College will enhance my current leadership abilities. The Honors College presents leadership opportunities within the College itself, such as the leadership programs and groups, and promotes involvement in campus activities and organizations. This environment creates natural student role models for peers to reach out to and look up to as examples. Combined with the community aspect of the Honors College, networking is extremely accessible not only with the faculty that students work closely with, but with other students as well.
I eventually had to recruit my PI to help. This experience has shown me what it is like to be seen as a collaborative leader and is something I have incorporated into my job as a clinical coordinator. My experiences will allow me to continue to learn in a collaborative setting while also focusing my learning with the ultimate goal of benefiting the
Therefore, I am eager to have the opportunity to learn from a support network of peers and mentors that are dedicated to Lookout Scholars. Reflecting on my background as an immigrant and witnessing the opportunities that I have as a first-generation college student, I realize how vital it is to be both humble and eager to learn from others who can impart their wisdom, while also equipping myself to be a leader and to share my knowledge with others. Thus, being mentored by a Carolina Firsts Advocate and guided by the Lookout Scholars Director will allow me to make the most of my education by gaining the insight, knowledge, and experience that I can one day impart with others who have similar backgrounds to
Institutions committed to the purpose of making a good human Colleges and universities should prepare students to be global citizens. This means there should be guiding principles to development inclusiveness, integrity, innovation and creativity among colleges students. During my tenure in higher education, I have seen administrations who have been fully engaged with developing students to become global citizens. College students should not only see themselves as global citizens there should be a commitment by college administrators. College administrators set the tone for the institution and with the help of different campus partners, the vision and mission of the institution is developed.
