Being selected and serving in The National Honor Society would truly be a honor. Being selected into this program would be important to me because of the opportunities it offers. I have heard of The National Honor Society but never had to the chance to serve in it. This being my first time would really allow me to immerse myself in beneficial learning and serving along side my peers. I will be able to expand my leadership skills while being able to serve my community that I longing wanted to give back to because of all it has given me throughout my life here in Columbus.
Because I am not from Alabama, I knew that this program was going to be an excellent way to get involved and meet people in a smaller setting before classes start – but I never expected the impact that the people I met this week would have had on me. Whether it was the amazing student leaders or the freshman in my project group at Taylorville, I met some of the most genuine people in my life and they really helped to solidify my view of this school and made me feel like I belong here, like I’m home. It wasn’t just the fact that we spent a majority of this past week together that made us connect, but it was our drive to
Cultural Thank you to everyone who nominated me for Cultural Chair. For me, I was involved with cultural events throughout High School. I was involved with International Festival and Vietnamese New Years. I always wanted to learn more from other cultures because I know it is important to know about others if you want them to understand about your culture. It is quite unique how few cultures are similar to each other.
It 's all about finding my home away from home. I love South Carolina and I 'm not ready to leave yet. I am ready to explore the other beauties South Carolina has to offer, and USC Upstate 's campus is beautiful. When I first heard about USC Upstate, I knew I wanted to because I want to grow and experience the cultures of the diverse population around the area and a growing school like USC Upstate will help me to see all I could all around
Georgia Daze was very impactful in my decision in coming to the University of Georgia. As a high school senior, I was a bit skeptical about attending a university where the Black population is less that 10%. Georgia Daze showed me that I would not be alone on this large campus. The organization welcomed me into the “BUGA” family with open arms. Though I was with a group of strangers, I never felt uncomfortable or out of place; the feeling of family was overwhelmingly beautiful.
Claflin University is one of the most significant academic institutions in the state of South Carolina. Despite the small size of the campus, Claflin University has much to offer to its students and faculty. Therefore, during my first semester, I fell in love with five aspects of the university and I learned to appreciate the heritage of Claflin University. Although the campus may appear to be boring at times, Claflin University offers a safe environment for all of its students. This is one of my favorite aspects of Claflin because without a safe campus, it is impossible for the students to learn effectively.
I’m originally from Chicago, IL but I’ve always fancied myself to be a southerner transplant that grew up in the Windy City. My interest in Historical Black Colleges and Universities has always been strong but that interest reached a fever pitch as my high school graduation date was soon approaching. I was fortunate enough to take part in a Historical Black Colleges and Universities College Tour and visit campuses across the United States. I loved each and every school that we visited especially, the SWAC schools. There was always something about the atmosphere at a HBCU.
I love meeting new people who share the same interests and passions as I do. It’s hard to explain just how much this program means to me. When I am older I hope to run for Kentucky State 4-H Teen Council President, and can contribute back to this amazing
During my time with the club I often met with Kiwanis (A organization of volunteers), soon I learned that Kiwanis created The Key club to give high school students an opportunity to serve their community. I also uncovered that The Georgia Institute of Technology also enjoys a Kiwanis club. In terms of service I believe that through community service, I may make a positive contribution to Georgia Tech upon arrival. I am very excited to join Kiwanis in college. I have always served locally, but I am exuberant to assist broader
It’s not with every college that one may come across opportunities such as those Westminster offers to its students. After visiting the school and attending a breakout session for the Honors Program, I knew that I had to apply. The program immediately appealed to me for multiple reasons, a couple of these being its challenging nature and uniqueness. In not many other places can students have sit-down conversations with guest speakers and get one-on-one attention from professors. In not many other programs would I have the opportunity to write a graduate level Honors Thesis my senior year.
When I initially signed my bid for Chi Omega, I had no idea the impact that it would have on my life. As a junior, I was much older than a majority of the girls in my pledge class, and even the sorority. Thankfully it didn’t make a difference in our connections and I felt that I had finally found my home. I knew that I had made a decision that would make a huge effect on my life in so many different ways. The first improvement Chi Omega has made in my life is academic.
For the past couple weeks I had the opportunity to volunteer at an Intergenerational Community Center of Lucille W. Gorham, in the south part of Greenville. I always had the passion for helping others, especially kids but my schedule seemed to always arise conflicts. However, I found time throughout my busy class and work schedule to volunteer and pursue my passion. Out of luck, I believe I picked the most welcoming place off the possible sites to volunteer. With high expectations of children 's after school care and safety, walking through the foot of the door, this center exceeded just that.
He has always encouraged me to become the best I can be. He would always tell me: “Strive for success and don’t stop until you reach your full potential.” Being able to see the mistakes he made will help me succeed at Allen. This past season really opened my eyes because I was offered multiple scholarships from many different Universities and Community Colleges. Looking back at my performances has made me realize how far I have come from when I set my goal when younger. I have exceeded my goals and I never imagined being as far as I am now.
In addition to that I will get to see way more stars at Augustana than in Chicago. Furthermore, the people on the campus are extremely friendly and helpful, which fits me well because I am extremely friendly and will need a lot of help. During my college search I wanted to make sure the school I attend had classrooms that were small so I could get the one on one with the teacher that I need. According to US News, 62% Augustana classes have 20 student or less and 38% of classes have between 20 and 49 students in their class. Their classes are generally smaller than the classes I have at Epic or at any other colleges I got accepted to.
I hope to be on the list of valedictorians, to be the president of the FCA club, to be the captain of the Varsity water polo team, to be a stronger individual, and to be known by all my teachers as a hard worker and a kind student. By then I hope that my dream college, Vanguard University, knows of me, and has put me on a list for an academic scholarship for music and has noticed all of my hard work. I’ve already emailed the colleges that I am interested. Such as University of California Los Angeles, Cal Poly, Stanislaus University, Fresno State, Vanguard University, and Fresno Pacific. There is so much I want to accomplish before my last year of high school and I am going to do it
