Not necessarily for college applications, but moreover on the experience that I will gain by being a member. In fact, the opportunities such as giving back to the school and the community will surely hold more value than it would in my college applications. In addition, if I do get accepted, I will surely not be the first to write that I was an NHS member, so would it really make much of a difference? I believe I will be a great contribution for the National Honor Society. Growing up in an unfortunate family, I have learned to take my education seriously and apply for organizations to serve as an inspiration.
When my friend recommended that I should be a part of the team, I did research on what the team did in the college community and instantly wanted to be a part of this ground-breaking team. I feel like communication skills and being comfortable with many views are both great necessary qualities to have when dealing with a diverse college campus. I am very open minded and respect other people’s views even though they might not agree with my views. I possess great social skills and find myself very personable. I get along well with multiple different people which I think would be a great addition to the counseling team.
I plan to utilize the lessons I learned in high school to continue to excel in the classroom. I love the idea that by being in the JMU Honors program, I will have access to smaller classes, engaged faculty and experiential learning. I am excited at the thought of living and studying with other students who have my same academic focus and I look forward to taking advantage of every opportunity the program would offer. In summary, I think I would be the perfect candidate for the JMU Honors program because I have a desire to continually challenge myself and to strive for excellence. I want to make the most of my four years of college and, just like high school, I plan to excel academically.
Avid has academically shaped me through leaps and bounds. I had always maintained pretty satisfying grades in school, but Avid has improved me so much. It had helped me stay organized with my school work along with how to manage my time. The main reason I had joined Avid is because I want to be prepared for college when it approaches. Avid will hopefully help me find the right school along with steering me in the right direction.
I would love to share my experience with others to help ease their transition into college life. An Honors Ambassador should excel in a few skills such as: clear communication skills and being able to connect and relate to a variety of potential students and their parents. They should hold good student values by attending every class, staying involved, or going that extra mile to express the best of their abilities. My communication skills have substantially improved since I started working as a front desk receptionist at McCorkle Sales in Claxton as a high school senior. For example, I must be able to maintain a friendly personality to every incoming customer and
Many kids in this generation have grown up being told to get good grades in order to get a scholarship, which in turn allows them to go to college. Is college worth it? From my research I have concluded that college is in fact worth it. Although many college graduates end up having debt, key aspects such as wider range of opportunities, connections and higher pay add up to an overall conclusion supporting that college is in fact worth the cost. A major benefit of going to college is the amount of opportunity that arises from having a degree.
One shouldn’t ask how can I get my degree, but rather how they can get the most out of their degree. The audience of Becoming a Learner is future or current college students. This is a wide range of people, but this story can be beneficial to all who will be in search of a job after college. By telling his audience how to become a learner before they graduate with a degree they will be able to apply his ideas and get the most out of their education. This medium is very important because it gives the audience purpose for reading the piece.
Education could open a new learning experience between languages and cultures so that traveling could be a qualification. As the travel continues, helping others succeed is another option (The Value of Education). Teach what was learned in college and inspire other students to succeed in their careers all around the world. College also helps grow mentally (The Value of Education). With all the knowledge and experience gained through college, the mind gradually learns ways to understand new ideas and thought processes.
To the Younger Generation, oh how I wish there was an easy way to get through this thing they call high school. To be honest, I would search for that every day of my life as I go through high school and I can say that there is no easy way. High school is a necessary evil that is different for every single person that attends. It is fun and then it is not want you would like at all. As you venture through it you will soon realize these things and this is my way of telling you how to best go through it with the most ease.
I can contribute my hard work to the Honors College community. I think that I am hardworking and I love to work with others to help solve problems because two heads are always better than one. I would contribute my ideas to the lessons and help others when they need it. I love to be able to work with other people outside my comfort zone and be able to hear their ideas and combine ideas to come up with something that will benefit everyone in the community. I hoped that my contribution to the Honors College community would be beneficial to the ones that are in the same mindset as me.
