Within a later conference held in California, other campuses took up the name and Black Student Unions became widely accepted. James Garrett is one of the founding members to kickstart the Black Student Union at San Francisco State. He is sixty-seven and a retired lawyer/dean of instruction at what is now Berkeley City College. As a member of the SNCC as well as CORE for six consecutive years, he originally arrived as a student upon the campus but had hopes for a greater change. Garrett hoped to move the Black Student Movement from the larger community to a more focused, younger group within a campus setting.

During my time as president of the honor society I was able to receive an additional scholarship for outstanding leadership.
One thing that Cruz has always believed is that education has a profound effect on success. Due to this, he attended college in Princeton University and graduated in 1992, and later graduated from Harvard Law School in 1995. Cruz has a plan to reignite the growth in our economy. “America’s economic strength has been smothered by years of Obama’s broken promises, and
Instead, education is “an ongoing process because the law is always evolving.” Perhaps this is the Chris Leopold Law Office’s most distinctive characteristic: its capacity to evolve in a rapidly changing society while ensuring that its clients receive adequate monetary compensation along with competent, affordable legal counsel within an overall framework of earned trust and integrity. All of these qualities make Attorney Chris Leopold a shining example of a Black business owner who has established a record of success necessary to generate long lasting collective progress. For this reason, the Spendefy Team celebrates his work as indispensable and a motivator for us all to
In Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford the structure could be defined as an epic hero structure, because Henry Lee faces many trials and tribulations with the help of an older mentor; and gains self knowledge as well as a new insight on Chinese Japanese relations. “ … the hero is given a resource or special gift by an older mentor for use in his or her journey.” (Campbell). “‘No matter what happens to us, Henry, we’re still Americans. And we need to be together… wherever they take us. But I’m proud of you’ …” (Ford 134).
Wilson’s efforts to expand Princeton into a complete university included raising the academic standards, creating majors, and initiating lectures held by professors. Princeton honored him by establishing the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs in addition to its residential complex also in his name. Here, it is evident that Wilson has created a positive learning environment that eventually turned into one of the greatest institutions in the country and has in a way, earned his high regard. However, the murals of him, quotes by him, and other reminders of his efforts can also be seen as controversial because it is a constant reminder of his history of wrong doings against black people. By removing black officials from
78 has been considered one of the most influential pieces of work in the field, as it lays the ground work of what he believed was the role of the court. Since then, many scholars such as Robert Dahl have weighed in on how that role has changed. In the Federalist No. 78, Hamilton lays out that the Supreme Court is designed to settle constitutional disputes as well as act as a check towards congress in order to ensure the minorities interest. This was accepted to be the primary role of the Judiciary branch for a long time.
My professor and Phi Theta Kappa advisor, Dr. Blake Ellis, has had a tremendous impact on me. He is not only the most brilliant person I have ever met, but he is also extremely passionate about his career choice, education, and about living life to the fullest. I believe there are to many people who simply go through college only to obtain a degree. Sadly, I used to be one of those people. However, once I met Dr. Ellis, my view on my own educational journey changed completely, and for the better.
Please accept my resume to showcase my interest in the position of Resident Assistant. I believe that I am an excellent candidate due to my leadership ability, my academic achievement, and my overall attitude. I am a firm believer in academia being the top priority while in college and I have proven this attitude through my performance over the past semester. As a Political Science and International Business double major at Monmouth College, who is on the Pre-Law track, I aspire to work in politics one day as a Political Campaign Manager. My academic attitude, I believe, is important for a Resident Assistant to hold because as a RA, one should be a role model for the other members of the hall.
But what really gave me a better picture was the last workshop where I heard a line that I’ll never forget, “your college degree isn’t just for you . . . it’s also for those who come after you.” That line told me that I needed to become, not only the best student, but the best person I could be, so I can set an example for others and be in the
After changing my major a couple of times, I decided to make History my major, which was originally my minor. After that switch I began to thrive, academically and personally. Queens College is my choice for graduate school, because it has one of the most outstanding History and Library Science programs I know of. With my determination and passion for the field I have chosen, I am prepared to gain as much credentials at Queens College. I hope to work along with Queens College faculty such as, Dr. Joshua B. Freeman or Dr. Kara Schlichting, since they have both studied the history of New York City.
