Everything I learned in this class has helped me in some way from learning how to do an interview, making a resume, talking about myself in a short manner. To start my search off I used the Vandiver center for career development resources, indeed, and Charlotte agenda to locate internships. I received call backs for the Special Olympics of North Carolina Development/ Programming Internship, a marketing analytics intern, and lastly an internship for the admissions- even though I did not accept any of these internships they all said that my resume was well formatted and impressive. Learning to send follow up emails were also helpful because it allowed me to find out more information without pressing too much. Also I learned that when you are not prepared for pone interviews then you should not answer the phone and call back when you feel prepared and
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?
My instructor Jennifer Jackson said this time “ Bravo! This is one of the strongest revisions I’ve seen yet.” This essay gave me so much confidence and made me feel I can actually write something interesting. Also, I sent my paper to The Writing Center, after I submitted my paper to my instructor to see any other mistakes I could have to improve my writing skills. I received a very good feedback from them after three or four days of submitting my paper, they said, “ my paper was pretty good. I needed to work on some minor mistakes such as spacing, omitting the work “that” when I did not need
I did this by writing out the die dates and making sure I was using all of my free time in school to complete my assignments. I will not allow myself to put my educations and grades at risk anymore. My education is valuable to me and I’m fortunate enough to be given the chance to take advanced classes before I start college. I now know how to write a college level paper, complete research for that paper, and make sure that I turn the paper in on time to be sure I get the highest grade I can. I have learned to make use of the time given to me so that I can create the best work I can.
With college comes freedom and with freedom comes a lot of opportunity to make a mistake. It’s no secret that colleges around the U.S. are known just as much for partying as they are for their academics. Some would argue that college has become a place where many kids go just to party, but I have seen first hand that this argument is flawed in many ways. With how competitive our job market has become college students know what is at stake if they can’t get their degree. Most students know that academics come first in college and, as a whole, college students are very serious-minded when it comes to academics.
College is full of experience and to get that experience students need to get involved in campus and use all the resources that their campus offer. For my first semester at university I learned lots of information that helped me go through my first semester and I will keep using this resources until I graduate. and these resources are not just for school but also for my personal life. The first thing I have learned in college is how to manage my time and it's important to know that skill so that I would not waste time doing nothing and get schoolwork done and it won’t make me stressful because I have many assignment and project to do. and to always get done with my priority first which is my school work.
Anyways, I was going to wait until next year, but my mom pushed me and she told me that I should give it a try. Then I ran for Spirit Commissioner and everything was new for me. I had to learn how the procedures work. First, we had t get at least twenty signatures from the school that are going to vote for me. Then we had to do a poster with a photo of us and the position we are running for.
Everything goes in a flash. I liked how my DH2 explained what she was doing to me, what changes I have to make with my oral health, and what procedures that are needed to be done. Plus, she provided me a few pointers and tips on what I have to do when I am in her position next semester and how I have to act professional and to be prepared for anything that suddenly happens. I liked my DH2 she was very nice and the overall experience with her was good. I remember on the first day of the appointment, I was very lost.
During my senior year at federal way high school I was allowed to participate in the running start program at Highline Community College. Although I was only in the program for one quarter I continued attending Highline for another six quarters. Regretfully I also began to work and soon started to fail my classes. So I decided to work full time and put my education on hold for the time. After working a few different places and being laid off I soon decided it was time to look toward my future.
So, I questioned myself, "What it takes to finally be familiar with those rules?" This experience taught me that writing is not the same as speaking and that requires me to have skills that go along with it. Writing this particular assignment about 9/11 as a topic has taught me what is like to deal with writing a research paper in a college-level, for the first time in my senior year. That was for my high school broadcasting class. However, after I gave my paper to my teacher, Mr. Williams, the next day he told me that it still had a lot of errors in it.
When you run for Dairy Princess, you need to give a speech and I was really nervous because this was the first time I would be giving a speech. If I joined earlier, I would have more practice writing and giving speeches. Likewise, I would have been able to meet more people and get to know them. I have met many people the past two years, including the president of the college I want to go to. I enjoy meeting new people and talking to them.
In the next four years of my life at Furman, I plan to cultivate a spirit of discovery, collaboration, and civic engagement. Because Furman is a liberal arts institution I believe that there will be so many chances to discover things I have never even heard of before. I plan on joining multiple organizations including the Heller Service Corps and the Shucker Center for Student Leadership. I believe that being a part of both of these organizations will allow me to not only expand my horizons and learn new things but help people at the same time. I will also be able to discover amazing new things by studying abroad.
Also I thought I signed up for one of your classes, but apparently I did not. Once I realized what I did it was too late and I had already filed for FAFSA. Do you think there is anyway I can still be able to take the course? And I still am interested in the laboratory job offer you made in class. Please keep me posted!
I selected WRTG 101 because it was a required class towards my undergraduate degree. This is a class that I should have taken earlier in my pursuit of my degree; it would have been extremely beneficial to me with my writing assignments for other classes. Being a student of WRTG 101 employs me to use my critical thinking skills in conjunction to my writing skills. Prior to taking this class, I thought that my writing skills were above average; however this class has provided instruction and feedback that I needed improvement in several areas. Each Monday, I would log onto UMUC.com to read the Course Content/Alerts to see what the status of my progress.
My teacher really has my fellow classmates and myself ready for reality. She taught us everything we needed to know from the simplest to the most difficult techniques and has us prepared us for college. From the way she would teach us and also the way she treated us was an excellent way to show how the real life of a college student really does face on a daily bases. I’ll leave the class by having the prior knowledge of knowing what and how to write an argumentative essay and know how to simply justify the reading side and confront my face my fierce. This year taught me so much that I use certain techniques to help me in other subjects.
