Spencer, I found it rather illuminating to see what research and work in research could mean for a person, especially an undergraduate student. This interview made me realize the amount of work I will have for next semester, from balancing classes with research and managing my time much more efficiently than I currently am. I also enjoy the fact that Dr. Spencer will somewhat know me before I begin his RDC course, which will hopefully mean I will be able to rely on him for help in a more common and professional manner. I hope this interview can be the gateway into a more productive and professional relationship with Dr. Spencer, with whom I am extremely excited to work
I learned about the different search portals that the Mabee library offers. I had only known about the ones that the Kansas library offers. It will be very beneficial when I am writing papers for the remainder of the semester. If I was to choose what I would have done differently, it would be to not procrastinate on the assignment as much as I did. Although the assignment was not difficult, it did take a lot of critical thinking and a lot of time to complete.
For instance while thinking about the synthesized essay and the amount of resources needed to write it, I made a plan which helped me manage everything on time. Planning for the structure of my essay helped me use a good amount of recourses and write a good essay. Since I am still in my Freshman year I think that such skills are going to be very helpful in the future. I think that I will be using what I learned from this course in many other courses including, Surveying lab, writing 204, and many other courses. This shows how significant this course
After filling out FAFSA I have found my financial situation to be just short of ideal, and shown through my years of hard work and dedication to education I believe that I am qualified for the university scholarship. As a student eager to become a Temple Owl the wide variety of classes and activities would not just keep me busy outside of school, but further enhance my college experience overall. I am a student eager to study computer science, a field that connects to my interests in gaining a broader understanding of computer concepts and software. The wide options in careers including software developers are ideal for me due to the courses ' abilities to mold
As this program helped my partner practice English, it also helped me gain self-esteem and confidence to express myself openly about what my academic and personal challenges were to the people who know me best. [In the summer and fall 2016, I was able to excel in my classes again because I was enjoyed the classes that I took, in addition to the help that I received. During fall quarter of 2016, I began my first computer science class, and was thoroughly interested in the subject. Although it was disappointing to repeat my English course, my second English course had provided me a new perspective to achieve better grade than previously. Despite the fact that I had to repeat my second computer class in Spring 2017, I was quicker to learn, manage my time, and present all of my course work clearly to excel in the
If you pay attention to the present, you can improve upon it. And, if you improve on the present, what comes later will also be better (Coelho, pg74)." According to "The Alchemist", if one pay attention to the present and improve upon it, one 's life can also get much better. If students who are worrying about the university or their future career focus on present moment, their future will also get better. Therefore, "The Alchemist" should be a required reading for all future students before graduation since it allows one to focus on the present
Although this Fall semester was really difficult I am glad that I was able to complete it and manged to pull through it with the help and the support of others. For future learning or situations I will look back on what I learned In English 110 because, it was not just a writing class but a class that has given many students the opportunity to learn themselves and provide for the community. I am also much more confident about the following semester and hope that things will work out well because, I was taught to manage my fall semester the hard way but now I will be better at
Reading and Writing are Important Stephen King's "Reading to Write" (72) give details about King's methods on becoming a better writer. To become a better writer, you must read a whole heap of books. There are so many other things you can read other than books like magazines, newspapers, labels on food, and papers. As a student in college, I understand Stephen King's methods. Reading and Writing will help me further my college education, and it will help me get to my goal.
As an English student this semester, I have learned how to develop essays in an appropriate educated way in English 101. I have learned how to find and properly use different sources in my essays as well as improving on MLA format. This class has also improved my writing skills in my work place. I presently work as a secretary for a company, and my job consists of writing letters to people from time to time. The skills that I have learned has dramatically improved those letters, allowing them to appear more professional.
This year in Humanities my confidence in sharing my opinion with the class dramatically increased due to the great work environment you provided. Going into this semester being my first year in college I was not planning on speaking up and giving my opinion in class. I had been a to myself person throughout high school and to some extent I still am but what i've learned is when I ask questions and give my opinion not only does it help me but it also gives the rest of the class a different perspective. Now with my new perspective as a student I believe it's my job in a way to bring up points because there's a good chance someone else in the class has a similar question and if I remain silent as well as my classmates we are only hurting ourselves. As a class I believe that we had very good attendance, personally I didn't miss a class.
Pancho S. Statement of Intent I want to be in AP Literature and Composition because I think it will prepare me for college. I heard that students who take AP classes in high school graduate college at a much better rate than those who do not take AP courses in high school. This is probably because they are better prepared for the level of work they get in college. I want to be ready for college. So I thought just being in an AP will let know what to expect in my future college, if I go to one.
For this week I have been using Zotero to organize and look up useful academic journals to use for my three new citations. Combined with Zotero, I have also been using Ebsco to help find some interesting topics related to the setting that I wanted to focus my points on. Zotero’s feature of allowing me to save the PDF and bookmarking useful articles was really convenient and saved me a lot of time. Zotero’s feature of creating bibliographies also saved me quite some time, as it allowed me to go straight to the annotations for my readings. Everything went smoothly and efficiently with the combination of Ebsco and Zotero together.
I am writing this paper after successfully completing my first half year of college on campus at Dakota Wesleyan University. I have done numerous things here during the fall semester of 2015 that have helped me mature and ultimately grow into a stronger person. My Learn Strong 101 class taught me some essentials that helped me with getting through the semester. One of the first things that I completed in this class was campus clarity. I think that this was a very helpful program.
