The pain and agony due to the fact that I might not be prepared for college class was on my shoulders. Since day one of highschool, my biggest desire throughout school was to be engaged in learning while being well prepared for the next step in life: college. What class was the answer to this class desired? It was in a meeting with my guidance counselor in eighth grade that struck me and sparked the interest in my heart to do well. All of my highschool career I have never known what it actually meant to do well and be ¨successful.¨
Success 101 is a one-semester course designed to help students achieve success in college and beyond. The course will focus on the strategies, habits, and values necessary for students to take charge of their own academic and personal development. Emphasis will be placed on self-assessment and goal setting, written and oral communication skills, critical thinking, time management, and study skills.
This course will show videos on just about everything when it comes to being a better college student. I have learned about reading and writing strategies also. Watching the videos provided on Blackboard helped me because I am mainly a visual learner, for all you visual learners out there these videos will help you too. My most significant learning experience from this course would be learning how to do better on my tests. Future students, just breathe and relax when taking tests, if you fail there is always a way to do better.
In college, they learned to keep pushing and never let one thing knock you down. They have told me countless times of how they had to work to go to school and change how they acted around classmates. I learned that if my dad didn’t have that degree I wouldn’t be writing this journal entry right now. It made me appreciate what I have and try to give to others that need help. Encourage people to shoot for the stars and attend that class because something as small as money for a bus ticket can change a person’s
I learned what it took to be successful, that I couldn 't just go through the motions. I learned one of the most important lessons of my college career thus far, and it is this- in order to be successful here (at Texas A&M), you must immerse yourself in every lesson, every lecture, every class. Everything must be 100%, and not a second should go to waste. Each moment is a moment to learn and to better yourself and your knowledge. There will be concepts that you just don 't understand, and when that road block is reached, immediate action must be taken; there 's a commonly spoken line that I never really listened to until recently, and that line is, "don 't be afraid to ask for help!"
An example of this is Laramie Project, I didn’t like the start of the book at all and then once it got going I ended up enjoying it a little bit more. Usually classes in high school involve skills that wont be used later in life but this class helped develop skills I will use. I saw this as a set up class for real life situations. It prepares you to be informed in a controversy like gay rights or learning about communities you didn’t know about
You should also eat very healthy because a healthy body is a healthy mind, you will not be falling asleep in class. I know that high school didn’t really get me ready for college at all because I came here not being well set up. I learned that APEX really helps a lot people to be very success in college. I know that when I am note taking that I will use Cornell style and my own form of note taking. I know that outlining and main ideas of a lecture will help me when I will be review for a test.
Students will learn and comprehend the importance of college, which will motivate them to graduate high school and start their journey after. Knowing about all these things are important benefits that students will learn from attending and participating in these types of
College is full of experience and to get that experience students need to get involved in campus and use all the resources that their campus offer. For my first semester at university I learned lots of information that helped me go through my first semester and I will keep using this resources until I graduate. and these resources are not just for school but also for my personal life. The first thing I have learned in college is how to manage my time and it's important to know that skill so that I would not waste time doing nothing and get schoolwork done and it won’t make me stressful because I have many assignment and project to do. and to always get done with my priority first which is my school work.
I learned that any barrier you face there is always an option to overcome it and be successful. I can grow by working my hardest on my school work and never giving up, even when things get hard. I also learned that time management is a very great skill to obtain at this time in my life, because college courses take time, effort, and lots of patience. I must give myself time to prepare for class work and especially exams. Having a schedule for my school work and my personal life is the best choice to help me stay on track.
English 102 Reflection During the course of English 102, I took this year of the spring semester. I have accomplished a variety of goals I once thought were impossible. I have not only grown as a writer and a student but as an individual as well. I feel that through my experience of this English course, I have achieved knowledge and self-confidence to step out into the real world.
From this class I learned that social work is the route I want to take in life. I loved the lesson we learned on how to not take the day home and to leave it in a tree and pick it up on the way back to work. I definitely will be using that one. This class has made me feel useful and I feel that because of it, I will be able to help others in the near
Which improved my skills, and my grade tremendously. Taking the same course with two different professors I knowest that each professor has different approach to the course, and how they help their students. Once I got use to the change from high school and college
Not only was I proud of what I learned in those classes, but I was recognized and rewarded for it as well. My goal could be achieved; my hard work could be rewarded. This realization gave me more confidence in my academics. I now feel driven by the fact what I set my mind to can be achieved when I give it my best effort, and believe in ability more
