Looking back on this past year, my first year as a college student, it is amazing to see how much I have grown through my academic and personal life. I knew accepting admission at the University of Illinois for a mechanical engineering degree would mean that my schooling would be a bit more competitive and stressful, however, I am glad that I did it because my experiences here have been like no other. As I mentioned in my other essay, my goal is to receive an education that will allow me to get a job where I can positively impact the world. With my experiences from the past year in academia, I feel that I have learned how I can do just that. In fact, I believe that I would be the best possible candidate for the ASME Chicago Section Scholarship because I would be able to use it to
I believe Brebeuf Jesuit would be the best school for me because I feel comfortable when I am there. I already know and have met many people at Brebeuf. They have told me about their great experiences, and what it is like being a student there. I am very connected to many people at the school, which has brought me much closer to the school and the people there. Personally, I really enjoy the sizes of the classes.
I am a member of many different associations at Canyon High School, but the club that has made the most impact in my life is Leadership. Leadership is a selective program on campus that invites students who have shown leadership qualities to improve them to make a bigger impact. I was nominated into the program my freshman year and have carried on with the program all throughout high school. The club’s main focus is to encourage students to use their leadership qualities to prevent and stop bullying. As nominees, we undergo a two-day training session that exposes us to ways to improve ourselves and those around us.
I chose Bronfenbrenner’s theory because it is relevant to the topic and provides guidance on how to achieve the ‘subject knowledge and methodology competency’ and ‘organisational competency’ as listed in the TE-TEX course plan. By utilizing this theory, the student teacher attempted to set the young learners in the center of the ecological systems, thus his lesson planning, teaching methods and management techniques were adjusted accordingly based on the situation and the overall learners’ needs. However, I was only capable of giving attention to the students’ first circle, the ‘mesosystem’ due to the fact that he had limited time during the practice period and had restricted authority as a student teacher. Therefore, the best indications showing the student teacher’s efforts to create an engaging and vibrant learning environment can be seen when he was directly involved and taking charge in teaching his own
The 2016-2017 school year is one I both looked forward to and dread. I perceive it will bring many new beginning and ends of things I have been enjoying for many years. First, I plan on completing my high school education in the fall of 2016. As you can probably imagine, the idea of finally finishing the four year adventure is very exciting and a chapter I will be happy to end. However, with the end of high school comes the beginning of college.
I am writing to express my interest in applying for the Sophomore of the Year Award for the University of New England. Through my experience as a second year student at the University of New England, I have always been determined to be a leader to and a supporter of my peers. Some qualities that show that I am worthy of the Sophomore of the Year Award includes: Leadership: While a student at UNE, I have dedicated most of my free time to the development of programs on campus such as UNE’s Crew Team, UNE’s Housing Staff as well as The USG Sophomore Class Representative. As a member of UNE’s Crew Team, I have encouraged 6 students who are only involved with one other club to join crew and stay active. Without a good amount of rowers, only a few of our 7 new boats would be filled.
The skills acquired throughout two years in that class has gotten me an offering for a job as a secretary after I graduate high school. Having this job will be a great help since I plan to attend a community college while working, and afterwards leave to a university. In conclusion, my goals for college are to complete my first two years locally and be certified in marketing. Then I will
This network can be very useful when I embark a new job search, developing my career path, building business relationships. Thus I can easily establish businesses to create employment for my community members which will help reduce the unemployment rate in Ghana. I already have some knowledge in environmental engineering due to the fact that I have a civil engineering background. Also, during my undergraduate degree, my results in environmental engineering courses were great and my GRE results are equally good. Furthermore I possess excellent analytical skills; planning and designing skills hence this program will be a best fit for me.
On the threshold of my high school graduation, I had my heart set on studying Social Work, as being Vice President of Student Union of Chu Van An high school, I had always loved designing and organizing social activities and events . Nevertheless, as the highly competitive university entrance exams approached, my parents had other ideas for me. Since the world was still reeling from the global financial crisis of 2008-2009, they urged me to major in courses related to business, which were very promising majors at the time. As is customary in Vietnam, I followed my parents’ wishes, and in hindsight I am very glad that I did. In my freshman year, however, I struggled constantly having to meet the requirements of classes focused on Philosophy, Informatics and other general subjects which are supposedly irrelevant to my own major- Business English.
My plan for academic success My plan for academic success is to graduate high school, go to college and then become a nuclear engineer or a professional athlete. I also believe it is important that I find a job that makes me happy, a job that I like doing and enjoy. For the next three semesters graduating high school will have the most importance to me. Then of course I would go to college after high school to help further my education and help prepare me to be more successful in life. Then to the real world with a job in a form of engineering, which I have planned for since high school.
I also believe that I will enjoy learning about mathematics and other various subjects provided, and I will be able to share my experiences to my fellow peers. I think that this program is designed for me, because I love learning new concepts, and I love being challenged to think outside the norm. I also am very responsible and hardworking therefore I believe that I can gain more skills through this summer program. I am a type of person that can’t be just sitting around, and I love being involved whether it be something new or something I’ve already covered. I also love meeting new people and I think that meeting new people especially geared towards my interests, make it even more exciting!
Additionally, COS 100 makes the case that working together and communicating is the best way to advance the sciences. Being a passionate fan of science, I now support more collaborative efforts. I am also doing undergraduate research with the Statistics department here at NCSU. This more than anything else shows me how powerful a group working together can still be after first seeing it during my Order of the Arrow Ordeal many years ago. I have definitely gained a healthy respect for the power of group effort.
As for the teachers themselves, they are always supportive to their students and help students to achieve their goals. The future of the program would stay the same, the goal would still be to make the youth respectful and productive members of society. Students benefit greatly from being in the JROTC class. That I have proven in this essay. Take it from the cadets themselves, this class has given them the opportunity to get a lot of community hours and a lot of fun opportunities that other classes don
I think that two of the most important benefits of being an APTA member as a student are the student study resources and the ‘getting involved’ information. I think that all the options in the study resources tab would be an invaluable tool to use in researching different topics and scenarios for future classes and clinical rounds. It is nice to know that I can go to a reliable source to search for answers on topics I need more clarification on. The other neat benefit is the special student interest groups in the ‘getting involved’ tab; this sounds like a great way for students to further themselves as future physical therapists. I think it would be quite profitable to be a part of one; it sounds like a great way to communicate and work with other students from Texas in a smaller, more focused setting.
