I believed my life was pre-determined the moment I began college. The five-year plan I constructed detailed how I was going to graduate with a computer science degree in three years and become head of a tech start-up company. I was going to be a female Mark Zuckerberg by the time I was 25, and nothing could stop me. My world was meticulously ordered down to the minute. So when that plan failed spectacularly, I was destroyed. The life I had set out for myself unraveled before my eyes I could do nothing about it. Worse still was that the failure was my own doing.
I graduated back in 2013 from a pretty decent school district. During high school I wasn’t an A student or a B student, I just did what I needed in order to pass. Once I got to my junior of high school I started taking things more seriously, I started making A’s and B’s. Once my senior year started the pressure was on. Everyone asking “what college are you thinking about attending?” “What do you want to do?” I didn’t have the answers to those questions, I thought about it a lot, but I Just didn’t have the answers. Now being 20 years old at my third community college, I finally have the answers to those questions. Why am I at my third community college? Simple I didn’t know what I wanted to do, but I had to go to college, I didn’t have a choice
my Wilmington id: kchep43681, I had applied for a transfer student. 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
I am awakened by the bright light seeping through and around my black-out curtains. The clock on my night stand reads 3:02pm. I realize it is Thursday my night off from work and that I actually slept 6 straight hours with no interruption (that’s a record since I started working nights at the hospital). Still drowsy I toss my covers off and peel my listless body from the comfort of my cozy bed. I stumble down the stairs to the kitchen where I turn on my Keurig and realize it is “THURSDAY! Oh crap!” Shasta college classes start on “MONDAY!” I have yet to sign up for the fall semester. Once my cup of coffee has brewed, I grab my laptop from the kitchen table, make my way to the living room, sit down on the couch, open my laptop and immediately sign into my “My Shasta account”.
While preparing for college I already knew what I was going into. Coe College is roughly the same size as my high school in my hometown. To be honest, I had a grand plan to do well in college. By my senior year I would like to say I was very accomplished; In four years I became a model student and I was in leadership positions and became voted homecoming queen. People told me that college was going to be the best years of my life but I was sure that high school was already best four years. The genetic diversity was not something that phased me. Sycamore is a community of three-story houses and golf courses, and my government subsided home was called the ghetto ever since my family loved in more than a decade ago. From an early age, I learned
Before I began looking for colleges Syracuse to me was just a school with a really good Basketball team. But, I didn 't become interested in Syracuse University as a school until when I first started looking for colleges of my liking. Throughout my search for colleges, Syracuse was a school that stuck, it had everything I was looking for: top of the line education as well as a great business program in the Whitman School of Management. Sparked by my interest in Syracuse I prompted my guidance counselor to plan a trip to visit while in my junior year. When I visited the college I first noticed how gorgeous the campus was. All of the buildings looked amazing while walking around the campus. While walking around the campus, I was able to realize
Growing up in the small town of Clarksville, TN my whole life, I never had to be the new girl at school. I went to high school with the same kids I went to pre-k with, up until my junior year. One afternoon, I heard about a new opportunity for me- Middle College at Austin Peay State University.
How was my developing education during Freshman year and Senior year? When growing up in my house there were two different types of language based on parents by my dad only speaking Spanish and my mom speaking both English and Spanish. And at the age of 8 years old my mom and dad took me and siblings to Mexico and studying, but learning new ways how to write and read. Made me suffer a lot, even though my mother and father always made me practice and not forgetting allowed me to understand many things. And at the age of 13 years old my mom and my dad brought me back to the United States to study and for me it was really difficult because I was already used in writing and ready in one language for me it was basically like for me knowing a new
As a first time student attending Spokane Falls Community College, I honestly thought the only buildings and areas of campus involving my class schedule would be of importance. Little did I know that one room encountered would become my safe haven. I remember the first day stepping out onto the campus and seeing only a giant riddle waiting to be solved. Bountiful parking spaces, buildings, rooms, classes, and students bombarded me. Just after my first class, my mind overflew with information. Due to this stressful situation, all I wanted was to relax. I came across a room conveniently located, possesing plenty of comfortable couches, and radiates the attributes of a casual environment. I found the room helps students stay refreshed between
When I originally came to Eckerd College, I was super excited and nervous about leaving home and coming to new area. Also, I was super nervous about not knowing my major. I was in between a couple of majors and couldn’t decide because everything interested me. I also was super nervous about not being able to make a 4 year plan once I did pick a major. But once I got here my peer mentors guided me and helped calm me down when I picked my first classes. Once I found out about Eckerd College’s core requirements for graduation, I started to calm down knowing I could take classes I was interested in and at the same time fill requirements, if I didn’t choose to stay in that area of studies. For example, I was interested in Anthropology, but was unsure
I remembered your first year at Claflin University. You were always happy and could light up any room with your personality. I would like to thank you for all the laugher and joy that you bought into my life this year. I truly will never meet anyone like you , which is a good thing. Good luck with everything that you do in life. And remember to never change for no
I am an international student who have been in the United States for six years. My plan is to transfer to an university to achieve an undergraduate degree in Marketing. I am originally from Vietnam and my family has a business of producing and exporting furnitures overseas. We have been taking orders from foreign countries such as New Zealand, Australia, and America. I choose Marketing as my major to help the business develop and become more well-known to the world. I decided on Seattle University as the next movement of my college life for many reasons. I find that Seattle University is located in the North of the United States and it has an outstanding environment of study. I have been living in the South area of the country
In 2014 I was set in stone to attend Cottey College, an all girls school in middle of nowhere Missouri. Sounds terrible? Not to me, especially since this college was transferrable to Smith College the school of various influential women such as Betty Friedan, Madeline L 'Engle, and Julia Child.
For as long as I have remembered, I have dreamed of getting into a good college. If i take the early college pathway, my life will be way easier after I graduate, and get into a college, because I will only have to take a couple of years to graduate. If I take the early college program, I can enjoy the rest of my life after college, because I will only have to take a couple of years.
My first day at Miami Dade College is an important event in my life. For me it is an unforgettable day in my life, since it was a goal proposed and fulfilled. College life is a life of freedom. I was waiting on the day when my university life could start, the expected day finally arrived, and it was a very light day the sky cleared. When she arrives at the Miami Dade College, a person named Michelle gave me a tour around the college to explain to me where are the parking lots, the offices of the councilors and the classrooms where they taught to the subjects. I was happy, but at the same time a bit nervous about making new friends and learning new topics. The university is different from high school.
