I led twenty-two students during their first year of college to provide them success as students. I co-taught a class that focused on study skills, UNK resources, and involvement on campus. My ability to communicate and adapt to the diversity of the class was shown through creating different learning activities to employ in the classroom. I exemplified team work by collaborating with another instructor. Through my experience as a Peer Academic Leader, I was able to hold two counseling sessions with each student per semester to provide myself as a resource.

During my time at Sacopee Valley Middle School I believe I had a positive impact on the school. I can also say that I have had a positive impact on the middle school during my four years attending Sacopee Valley High School. One of my strong beliefs involves giving back to those who give to you, whether it be little or small. While I was a student at Sacopee Valley Middle School, I was a member of the Civil Rights Club for two years.
By the time I graduate high school, I will already have my college associate degree that I will have earned through my hard work and dedication. Even though I went through a lot at such a young age, it has shaped me in every possible way. I was exposed to a whole different language and culture, but I was able to succeed through my strong desire of success and dedication. I am thankful for every challenge that I had to go through because if it was not for them, I would not be the person I am
I have a lot of friends who join clubs that have to do with their majors. These clubs enable students to practice doing tasks that they would do in their job after college. For example, one of the finance clubs focuses on investing stock with real money provided by Ohio University. Students that want to go into investing know that this is a great opportunity to practice their skills and stick out from a group of job applicants. There are many other clubs just like this and tons of students are signing up to further their academic careers.
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
At the end of their high school career, they may receive an associates degree based on the program that the campus offers. Attending such an incredible program allows individuals to begin their careers ahead of time as well as to get familiar with the overall college environment. According to statistics, about 94 percent of early college high school students graduate with some college credits, the average being 38 ("Early College High Schools Get Results"). Due to the determination of the students to become successful, they have instilled a mindset within themselves to achieve their every goal though they are still young. It may be argued that students who attend an early college or who begin preparing early experience burnout, physical and mental collapse due to overwork or stress, because of the excess amount of schooling they may have to complete and the competition of acceptance into universities.
I first began hearing about the possibility of a gap year between high school and college when Malia Obama (Former President Obama’s daughter) announced that she would be taking a gap year before attending college. I have sense had many friends consider taking a gap year and some of them have gone for it. The study of the benefits of a gap year is very interesting because there are so many factors that play into a successful gap year. These factors include what you do on your gap year, how much of your gap year is academically focused, when you take your gap year (some people take a gap year once they have completed a few years of college or an undergraduate degree), and where you go. Other things that can contribute to whether or not a student takes a gap year can be socioeconomic status, vocational and professional plans, as well as GPA and standardized test scores.
I belong to many task and relationship groups currently. However, a few stick out above the rest. For starters, Upward Bound is a task group that I consider to be problem-solving. In Upward Bound, especially in my senior year, we have had the problem or obstacle of preparing for college. We have gone through, as the DeVito text would define it, a set of procedural rules to follow to achieve success.
