How college changed my life in a positive and negative way. Graduating from high school, everyone, family members, loved ones kept asking me what college I would like to attend to become a better person in life. After several weeks and months, I eventually got admitted into a great college and I noticed that college has changed my life in a positive way. Having lived with my parents for a long period of time, I lived with them on the same routines and schedule. But moving into college and staying on my own, my life schedule changed due to the crazy schedule of college.
As I stated before, I believe physically and emotionally it influences us. Also, I believe our behaviors are directly related. This is only my second semester in college and I can always see and hear the negativity of others, especially on this topic. Some students are not engaged and focused on these classes, because of the fact they want to start with the classes for their degree. Time management is a huge thing in college, and when we are taking a general class and a class for our degree at the same time, most of us are going to spend more of our time on the class for our degree, because we believe it is more
At the beginning of each university semester, students receive a course syllabus in which all activities of each course, with their tasks and deadlines, are established. However, a large segment of university students postpones their assignments until the last possible minute because, according to Knezevic, students are predisposed put off until tomorrow what they should do today. Nevertheless, this practice is
Letting go of my impossible standards for myself and stressful schedule will allow me to be enveloped in the atmosphere of the college life and enjoy what I have been spending my last few years trying to achieve: attending college. Being able to relax and enjoy my first year away from home will take an immense amount of focus as I am set in my ways and stubborn about having perfect grades. I do not want to stress about trying to be the perfect student throughout my entire career, no one is perfect, and trying be such is too much stress for a single person to endure. I want to let go of the overwhelming stress I have placed upon myself and enjoy the freedom of college with my new
Since a young age I have been determined to attend college. As a first-generation student, the road to attending a university was not easy, but I have always had a passion or learning and college was something I looked forward to. In high school, I worked very hard to be able to attend a prestigious university taking a rigorous curriculum with AP classes, participating in extracurricular activities, and working a part time job saving up for tuition. Although I was certain I wanted to attend college, I questioned what I wanted to major in and what university would be the right fit. Halfway through my senior year I started to struggle with severe health issues which lead to surgery and a month-long hospital stay While I was at Seattle Children’s Hospital the nurses played a vital role in my physical and emotional recovery.
Elementary school, middle school, high school, and then college? We are told to “go to college” by friends, teachers, and family, but is college really worth all that hassle? The answer for every student will be different. Although, students may think that college is not in their future, it is strongly encouraged to think about post secondary school for a minute, because students will have a better income, more job opportunities, and will have a healthier lifestyle ahead of them. Students that think college is not necessary, may feel like it is too much for them to handle.
As students go through high school, many start thinking about their future after school. Some students choose to get a full-time job after graduation to begin earning money instead of going to college. Some people join the military. For the people who choose to go to college, the closer it gets to senior year, they start deciding which college is the right one for them. Some students think that a four-year college degree is worth the expensive cost of tuition, but others feel it is not.
I don't want to be procrasonating on classwork or projects because that is something that will not always work out for me in the long run. The teachers will remember me but in a negative way because i would always turn in my work late or it would look un I want the most out of my highschool years and to get all the help and benefits that I can while im here. I also want to get as many college credits as i can to help contribute to my college education. I really want to make sure I do an excellent job in my health science class because my dream job is to become a Registered ER nurse.
But, then again, I face a second challenge to pursue my passion when me and my colleagues have to choose our major as our principle in making undergraduate thesis. In order to achieve a higher score in the next semester, my friends kept busy asking their senior what major they have to choose if they want to achieve a higher score and pass the class easily. My friends who basically have no idea what major they are interested in finally choose the major which offer a safety net for their score. Honestly, at that moment I felt afraid of choosing what major that I have to choose. I was afraid because deep down in my heart, I know that I have to choose monetary economics major, yet I afraid that I will fail to pass the class since the major was famous with a professor who has a high standard for his student to pass his class.
Going to university is the same as stepping on a great journey. However, leaving a familiar place and to face new friends and environment can be extremely difficult (Mcaleer, 2015). The “new” will make students feel stress because of a fear of the unknown. Although as a freshman they will face many stresses, there still have some ways to release
