Discover Your Major Day was a very informative event and helped me realize that I needed help to really figure out what I wanted my major to be. The event also made me really understand that a minor or a concentration is a wonderful thing to have. The faculty that I spoke to assisted me greatly and I appreciated that. They were able to explain to me everything I was having trouble understanding. I am very glad that I attended the Discover Your Major Day event because I feel as though if I did not go, I would not have realized that I wanted to add a minor or a concentration to my four years of study here at the University of Memphis.
I genuinely care about my sorority. I care about our reputation, as well as the safety and well-being of my sisters. Going through rush as a sophomore gave me a unique perspective about joining a sorority. I wasn’t there solely to make friends or go to socials and date nights. I was there to take advantage of everything a sorority had to provide for me at UGA.
How will you hold yourself to a higher standard as a SET leader? As a SET leader I will hold myself to a high standard by showing the new PC’16 was it means to be in a sisterhood. Even since I was in the new member period I wanted to be a SET leader. It is pushing me beyond my comfort zone and putting myself out there to meet people within Kappa Delta. What was your favorite thing about your New Member period?
What followed was an intense sense of gratification for doing something for the benefit of others. From there, I dove into as many community service opportunities as possible, including sports, school clubs, and mentorship programs. While my responsibilities as freshmen class vice president were small in the grand sceme, my experience on the student council were perhaps the most enlightening. Primarily, I learned the importance of teamwork and inclusion because I had to work with other class officers to organize events, including spirit hall decorations and my high school’s annual air guitar
Another concern I had was how I would pay for the program cost, but after learning about the scholarships offered I feel it wouldn 't be much of a problem. Nevertheless, all the benefits far outweigh the challenges. Studying abroad would be such an amazing experience for me to learn about a different culture and improve my personal development, academic commitment, and career development. It’s an important period of anyone’s life and has a deep effect on students because people from all over the world come to one place having different backgrounds and different school
I enjoyed reading Goffman article “The presentation of self in everyday life”, it reminded me of sorority recruitment or “Rush” as it was formally referred to. With Henslin introduction and quoting Shakespeare I was able to reflect to sorority life. Depending on what sororities are present on campus could affect the how rush is perceived. There are days were the chapter all matches and everyone appears to be friendly and interested in the potential recruits. The potential recruits want these upperclassman to like them and invite them into this secret organization.
Now being at Rowan University I enjoy my profession and practice course as well as my life span development course. All three professors did not make the course dreading with meaningless homework. They would make sure you studied exactly what you needed to study, they gave you assignments that would help you with your career goals, the professors made the course a course that you can say you enjoyed and took something from it. So attending grad school is something that I find will be useful so I can be exactly where I need to be and gain all the experience and then some before working the youth. As you can see I always had a passion for working with children ever since I was young which is why my future goals are to build my own recreation center for kids eight to eighteen which will be called “Kinship Unity”.
Homeroom Reflection Junior year I have grown as a student this semester by watching the mala movie. This has helped me grow as a student because it showed me how just one voice can change so much in a community. From this experience I learned how Mala was an ordinary girl but who ones spoke up for what she believed was right for her community and the people all around her. After she started to change her community on a positive way for example, have more schools so students can have an education and making sure girls were able to attend school more often. Therefore, when she spoke up for what she thought was right and changed people 's life there was some who didn 't appreciate what she was doing so decided to shot her and ended up shooting her on her forehead.
I have had the opportunity to make amazing friends in and out of my sorority, meet impressive alumni at our international conference, and learn about and actively advocate for our wonderful philanthropy. Furthermore, being in an organization with 200+ girls really helps you learn about yourself and others more than any other experience in college. I am proud, blessed and thankful to wear my
Up until this time, I was unsure as to what I wanted to study in college. I came to the realization that I want to become a teacher, ideally in mathematics. I believe a teacher’s role is to lift up her students, help them gain confidence, and give them unlimited opportunities to succeed and most importantly, celebrate one’s differences. When I become a teacher I will always make sure I help all of my students and give them all the same opportunites to do what they want. Not having certain opportunities because of my size has truly affected me, and I would never want a student of mine to feel defeated.
“I joined because my older sister was already a member of Delta Gamma and I saw how much she enjoyed being a part of a sorority. I liked the idea of living in the house and getting to meet tons of new women with the same morals and values as myself” (S. Henry, personal communications, August 4, 2015). Although some of the chapters find themselves in a competition to be the best sorority, it usually makes each sorority want to do bigger and better things. According to Henry, the best part about Greek life is the fact that everyone supports everyone and everyone is there to help others. Many of the members overpay their due by completing more services hours than necessary.
I will help motivate my peers to take on more community and school service projects. I am not afraid to break out of my comfort zone to benefit those around me. The past two years I have worked to come out of my comfort zone and try new things. This lead me to many clubs and extracurricular activities that I know enjoy. For example, I am an active member of the FPC band.
Becoming the Vice President of Public Relations for the Rho Beta Chapter is a Phi Theta Kappa activity that has had a profound impact on my life, both socially and academically. When I initially joined Phi Theta Kappa, I was unaware of the high caliber of company that I was joining. The Phi Theta Kappa community is one where members encourage each other to challenge themselves academically, and invest wholeheartedly in their community. Running for and holding an office in the Rho Beta Chapter has given me the opportunity to meet and develop relationships with my fellow members. Since holding this office, I have met and befriended many new people who continuously inspire me.
