Since earning my diploma at West Genesee High School, I continued my education journey to Onondaga Community College. Here I had some ups and downs like any other student their first semester at a new school. Trying to adjust from high school classes to college class. During my first semester I struggled with Calculus, I tried college hour with my professor, and the tutoring center that is offered on campus. I ending up not doing very well in the class, and took it the next semester. Which improved my skills, and my grade tremendously. Taking the same course with two different professors I knowest that each professor has different approach to the course, and how they help their students. Once I got use to the change from high school and college
The infamous answer to the question, “What is your primary goal for going to school?” is “to further my education, get a job, and be successful” such a cliché if I must say myself. My goal attending school is to make my family happy, as well as myself. In high school, I did not apply myself like I should have done because I was not sure if college was in my favor. Also, being the child of a single parent wanting to attend college seemed impossible, especially far from home. In a family where no one has surpassed the first two years of college, I feel a spotlight is on me to not only finish, but also finish strong. I know how proud my family will be of my accomplishment and how rewarding it will be for me trying to obtain a decent job in the
When my older sister went off to college, I had never seen a more driven, mature and intelligent 18 year old look so terrified and reluctant to leave her home just a few states away. Caroline had spent the majority of her high school years stressed, angry and tired, holed up in her single room acing more APs than I can count with two hands. My sister knew from the time she could read that success meant getting into an Ivy, even if the price was throwing away all human contact or not.
When I was was younger, I was a caterpillar crawling around trying to get through life, waiting to turn into the beautiful butterfly I know I could soon become. I made good decisions along with bad ones, saw the beauty in life as well as the unpleasant. I was like everyone else trying to be their own person, but now as I look at myself in the mirror I can finally see who I really am. I see myself as the beautiful butterfly I once dreamed of becoming, ready to fly down my own path. I have been in my chrysalis and I am finally out and ready to fly into my bright future. Christopher Newport University is the direction I am ready to fly. Transferring to CNU means a brighter future, success, and being one step closer to reaching my goal to become an astonishing kindergarten teacher.
Picking to attend a Community college for me is the best choice that I picked for my education. Community colleges provide a great service to students in many more ways other than just education. They help students who are unsure what they want to do or are unable to attend a four year university. Community Colleges also provide continuing education even after they have gotten a degree and a job.
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. I would also give my time to the Honors College community since I expect myself to be working because I’m planning to be independent of my parents so I would be
College ruins the world. Everyday families struggle financially to send their children to college. Why should we spend money on more education. Isn't twelve years enough? Since college is, and will always will be in high demand, the prices are always increasing. Instead of families worrying about how they are going to pay for their food or home, students will not go to college at all.This solution benefits all parties involved. Parents will have peace of mind knowing that their family is stable, children will be less stressed and can focus on what’s really important, work. Even the government will thrive with the flow of capital. Overall eliminating college as a whole is the best way to eliminate the increase in college prices.
Many people come across roadblocks through their journey of life. I know I've had my fair share of them. The biggest bump in my academic life was changing it completely upside down.
Upon arriving to Miami Dade College, you will never imagine all the resources offered to students to succeed during their scholastic years. I’ve been lucky enough to been advised by some of the best staff at their Interamerican campus. From their advisement office to their profoundly knowledgeable professors. As a current student of ENC1102, we were required to attend one section with a tutor at the writing center. I always thought I had sufficient knowledge of the English language and taking time out of my busy schedule to attend a section with a tutor was absurd. However, and luckily to my surprise I was very happy I attended. I’ve always had issues when using words such as you’re or your, when to use commas, and I would admit it I would
My proudest achievement would be getting into Cumberland International Early College and making it oy my
Jackie Robinson stated one of my favorite quotes, "A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives." For two semesters, I have participated in the Community College Completion Corps. I have served as both Sub-Chair planner and Vice President of membership; in the former position I led the campaign. This event educates Tarrant County College Southeast Campus students as wells as faculty members about the importance of graduating from community college. By holding a three-day event, the committee members promoted the benefits of completing community college. We planned for this event for approximately two months and executed it in three days. The result was that more than 2,500 students pledged to complete college at the end of this event. Consequently, our membership rose by approximately 40%. All these accomplishments were significant achievements for our chapter as a whole and had a great impact on me. The Community College Completion Corps event was particularly important to me because I was always told that I would end up married and without a degree.
My most significant endeavor since attending community college would be helping my community to receive an Adult Daycare. Thought this endeavorer I have applied my knowledge that I have learned about the disease to educate others in my community who may not have to know the impact of it. I have also used and sought the aid of my relationship that I have built by being at my community college. This Adult Daycare service or Coltrane LIFE center is something that I am passionate about having in my hometown. My grandpa has Alzheimer's and I have seen the stress that tolls on the family and caregiver. To have an Adult Daycare in my area would ensure a safe and calming environment for elderly patients. Also, provide help and relaxing time for the

I had submitted my documents and I had given my transfer form in my dso they said they updated and sent to Wilmington university and even further they said you were accepted my transfer form but when I look in my documents status its still looks incomplete could you please it and confirm
Three years ago, my life took a turn for the better. I moved from Virginia to North Carolina after my freshman year and it was one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Throughout my transition of moving and living in North Carolina with my family, I have reached my full potential and have thrived in my academics. I have pushed myself to be the best of my ability in my academics. I am also an active member of my community through spending my time volunteering in many different forms.
The first half of this semester was swift and I can’t believe how fast it passed by. College is a whole new world for me that I had never imagined with a lot of new experiences that I hope will shift me into a better and smarter person. There are more things I can do in college that I would have never dared to do in high school and I am happy for these new freedoms. I am able to eat in class, leave class without asking and they don’t care if I pay attention or not. My high school teachers would always tell me to wait for the bell, sometimes would not let me leave and if I did not pay attention they would yell. However, I still feel trapped due to the immense academic stress. Academic stress is the worst as it defeats the “freedom”
