If Madison High School students were asked, “What is a Bronco?”, they might say a redneck, a hick, or a kid that goes to Blackfoot. When I am asked “What is a Bronco?”, the answer is simple--I am a Bronco, most of my friends are Broncos, my teammates are Broncos and the student body at Blackfoot High School are Broncos. We are each unique, but when our strengths and talents are combined as a whole, the Blackfoot Broncos are amazing.
Long Island is a coastal city made up of many different towns or suburbs adjacent to one of the largest, in scale of population and popularity, cities in the United States. It contains two different counties, Nassau and Suffolk, the richer areas of the Hamptons, home to many celebrities and wealthy individuals looking for a good escape from urban living, and two of the 5 boroughs of New York, Queens and Brooklyn. If it wasn’t already known, it is an Island. Long Island is connected to the city by an underground tunnel and the George Washington Bridge, which subsequently, are the only ways out of Long Island. The island includes relatively flat land with no mountains and with access to a beach being no more then an hour in any direction. Since
Finding Tufts was like grocery shopping: I had to pass through aisles of lackluster Wonder Bread before discovering the scrumptious sourdough I needed. I was captivated and surprised by the endearing personality that shone through the articles I read. For an institution, I found Tufts to be quite human. “Pax et Lux” is not just an aphorism above a doorway; the ultimate advice of the dean himself is to “be kind”. It was apparent that in addition to academics, kindness and character is of utmost importance, which assures me that at Tufts I will have the most comprehensive college
While some researchers have focused on both males and females in student affairs, Henry (2010) focused on African-American women. Henry (2010) purposed to add to the body of knowledge regarding African-American women in student affairs, as women student affairs are rarely researched and little information is available about their experiences. Henry (2010) interviewed three African-American administrators in student affairs regarding their experiences to answer questions regarding (a) what are some of the positive work-place factors for African American women in student affairs? (b) what are some of the work-place challenges faced by African-American women in student affairs? (c) do African-American women in student affairs experience or perceive racism in the workplace? (d) what advice do African-American women in student affairs offer to new African-American women entering the profession? (e) what services and resources can colleges and universities offer to assist African American women
Hi-Lighters is a club devoted to spreading positivity and instilling healthy lifestyle habits into members of my school. All high school students, myself included, experience stress sometimes, whether from school or family matters. Our goal at Hi-Lighters is not merely to encourage an optimistic outlook, but to work with members of my community to recognize sources of stress and strive to find ways to properly handle this stress, whether it be by developing stronger study habits or finding small ways to add movement into their busy schedules. Hi-Lighters also encourages students and faculty to recognize the incredible efforts faculty put into their work, with our popular Teacher Shout-Out Box. This is an opportunity for students and faculty
Documentary maker, investigative journalist, and author, Gini Sikes, spoke to UCF students on Thursday about workplace inequality, pregnancy discrimination, and equality laws.
Saint Bonaventure was a scholastic theologian and a Cardinal who was born in 1221, at Bagnorea in Tuscany, Italy. He is also one of the Doctors of the Church, and he is usually commemorated and remembered by Catholics on 15 July. As well as that, as an infant, he had been diagnosed with a dangerous illness and he had supposedly been brought to St Francis of Assisi, hoping to be cured, and Francis had cried out ‘O Buena ventura’, which means ‘good fortune’. This may be where his name was derived from. He graduated at the University of Paris and studied theology. In 1254, he became a master of theology and was also awarded a doctor degree. And soon after, he was awarded the position of being the minister general of the Franciscans. The Order
Being raised on the eastside of Atlanta, simply meant to me that I lived in one of the most highly black-populated cities in Georgia. I never knew that a city with so much heritage, history, and culture would be considered to a Chocolate City. Chocolate Cities was more than simply a place where many African-American lived. Rather, it symbolized an area of blackness that consisted of culture, companionship, spirituality, soul, and refinement (Hunter, Lecture 2). Stone Mountain, in particular, would become the Chocolate City that cultivated and crafted my individuality and black identity. Stone Mountain taught me what it really meant to be black and powerful simultaneously, but moving to other locations of the country taught me what it truly
Attending Notre Dame excites me because of the school’s rich history and prestige. Travelling to a university where the only person I know is a friend’s ex-boyfriend is scary, but I know I am prepared for this step in my life. Notre Dame is different than other schools because of its Catholic heritage. While I am not catholic, I have attended mass before and have this sector of Christianity to very beautiful and I have developed a great appreciation for it. I would call myself a creative person that enjoys the arts and it excites me that Notre Dame emphasizes the importance of arts in the school, especially after attending a high school where football is everything. Don’t worry, I enjoy football, too. Overall, attending Notre Dame would be
Since my childhood, I have been disturbed by inequality and injustice in the world. I felt like a solitary beacon of humanitarianism upon a coast of apathy and egoism. The idea of college life, then, was unnerving to me; I imagined attending a school full of ruthlessly competitive students of my own caliber or higher, indifferent to the plights of others.
During my first year in college, I did not foresee the barriers I would face being a first-generation Latina college student and not having a family member to ask for guidance in navigating my college education. Before attending college, I was aware that once I graduated from high school I would need to work and help my family financially because the occupation that my father held, selling ice cream in a truck, was not stable. Growing up in East Los Angeles and attending James A. Garfield High School, an overcrowded and poorly funded school, made it difficult to navigate my education. My knowledge about higher education was limited by the minimal interactions I had with counselors at my high
Freshmen students should be required to live on campus because freshmen will be able to adapt to their new social environment, they will gain their first steps of independence, and the experience will provide freshmen students an easier transition between high school and college. By living on campus, Clark Atlanta University (CAU) freshmen students will have a greater chance to excel not only academically but also socially. There are many advantages of living on campus that are beneficial to students which can have an impact on their future.
We all grow up with certain stereotypes about what makes us “normal”. These stereotypes, of course, depend on our particular cultures, but they do exist. From the average office worker working a 9 to 5 job in Chicago, or the Jewish banker in New York, or even the call center worker in Mumbai, India. However, as we grow as individuals, we suddenly are faced with the greatest paradox of all. Even though we are taught the standards of normality and its importance as children, people are not valued or celebrated for being “normal”, they are valued for being “abnormal”. Children grow up learning about what “normal” means, and what it means in their culture. The crowd mentality shuns outcasts and anyone who strays from the social norms and rewards those who stick to it. However, as children grow
Scrolling through the campus of Winthrop University I catch a glimpse of many diverse students. As I stroll, my mind tends to wonder why are we here? Why did we choose to attend college? Some of us chose to go to college to be a part of different organizations such as Greek life, sports, the school newspaper, honors society’s, etc. Several of us chose to attend college to enjoy hanging out with friends, occasional partying, attending campus events and cheering on the school basketball teams. While many college students can agree on these conditions being part of what drove them to go to college, most can agree that the real reason we are here is to receive an education. But what does it mean to have an education? Furthermore, what does it mean to be educated? Even further, which concept of thinking threatens us the most from being “educated” an open or closed mind? Frankly, the third question I can answer right away, and that is being too closeminded.
