Rose House is a close knit community that allows me to freely express my opinions and collaborate with my fellow peers. Being a Rose Scholar, I have realized how attending events allowed me to broaden my intellectual ability and bond with my peers. I have made my closest friends from participating in the Rose Scholars events. I feel Rose has a lot to offer to its residents and being a student assistant will allow me to pass my experiences to new and current residents.
As a transfer student from a community college, Cornell was and still is a big transition for me. At one point, it became overwhelming since I thought I was not fulfilling my loved ones’ expectations. College was not a new experience, but Cornell was. I was not sure if I would fit in this new environment. At times I found myself in libraries for hours. I would skip lunch or even …show more content…
After a few weeks in, I realized that this lifestyle is not healthy, for my physical and mental wellbeing. And luckily, I had Rose Scholars. Initially, I had applied to the program to get guaranteed housing. However, I found myself enjoying the events. Often times, I would attend more than one event. It not only gave me a break from my stressful week, but also allowed me to bond with my floormates and other Rose residents. Most of my friends are from the Rose House. And when the SA position came to me, I thought what could be a better way for me to share my experiences as a transfer student to other students. I can perhaps advice other transfer students for the challenges they might face in their daily lives. Students find themselves lost because of one bad prelim, but
Senior year is winding down and three things that has been on my mind lately, one of which is UChicago. As I am artsy fartsy and I have written a crap poem to showcase my love for UChicago. Will anyone read this? Probably not, but I will share anyway and probably change some of the wording and add it to my quality blog (Grapesofcontentment.tumblr.com; high quality) University of Chicago To my dearest love, I pardon that my deep affections towards you are unrequited, And that you have many fine suitors that beseech you as well, As my love for you is immortal; an inevitable consequence of Your profoundness, your passion, your splendor, and intellect.
My first year at Brookdale I joined the ALP program because I didn’t get a good grade on the Accuplacer. I decided to join this program so I wouldn’t have to take a English course next semester and be so behind. I joined Brookdale because I didn’t know what I wanted to do as a major and also didn’t know what four year college to go to. I didnt think Brookdale was going to all that great
The beauty of the campus and close-knit community I observed was so welcoming and made me feel very comfortable. When touring the campus, the small class sizes and the fact that I wasn’t just a number to a professor was a big plus. Learning more about Jesuit aspect of the university was most impressive to me as I really admire how SCU prepares students with its three pillars of: competence, conscience, and compassion and motivates them to make a difference. I could already tell that this was the place in which not only students but professors and faculty would wholeheartedly support and guide me in pursuing my aspirations. Both my family and I knew that SCU was a home away from home which would: engage, prepare, and encourage me for my next leg of
My first semester as an RA at Ithaca College has come and gone with its own unique set of challenges, lessons, and experiences. Over the past four and a half months I have adjusted to a new kind of college experience, formed many new relationships, and can honestly look back at it all and say I am truly gratified and appreciative of the opportunity given to me. All of these factors have driven my decision to try and further my role with Reslife and pursue a position as an Apartment Assistant. There is an abundance of obvious reasons as to why I, or anyone else for that matter, would be interested in working as an AA. It is clearly a nicer living environment compared to the average room in the Res Halls providing more freedom and privacy.
Since my fourteenth birthday my life has been a series of perfect catastrophes. An outsider would unquestionably deem my life desirable, although nonetheless average. Since fourteen I’ve appeared to have it all; and if you look the part you’re halfway there, right? I say this because people who don’t know me very well will likely describe me as “pretty, popular, and smart,” which are all great attributes to have, but the outside doesn’t always match the inside. I’m not going to tell you I was utterly miserable from the day I entered teenhood because if I did I’d be lying, and wouldn’t that be an awful way to introduce myself to the individuals who hold the power to better my life for the next four years?
Next semester, I will be a Resident Assistant in Baxter Residence Hall, simply applying for this position was a big step for me. The amazing community that God has provided me here at PBA is purely the only reason I had the courage to apply, yet alone accept this
My history as a writer has been a bit of a struggle of slow development. From a young age I had a hard time with spelling and this is still a trouble area for me, even with the help of autocorrect. As I grew in age and as a writer my problematic area became not including enough nitty gritty details. My bad experiences that I recall would always involve the start of writing because I struggle with beginning paragraphs. Also, I tend to use the ending paragraph to just repeat myself, so overall my first and last paragraphs are usually shit.
I learned to prioritize and stay on top of multiple projects while maximizing my service as a Student Worker. Working alongside with a team of enthusiastic individuals has taught me to always have a positive attitude and to be passionate about every aspect of the job. As a NYU CAS Transfer Orientation volunteer, I had a great experience collaborating with other dynamic team members. As a team of previous transfer students, we understood the fear, confusion, and uncertainty one could have as a new transfer. We incorporated our experience to design individualized activities to smoothen the transitions of the new transfers into the NYU community.
Attending Hobart and William Smith College in the fall semester of 2017 was a bitter-sweet experience. Some moments I felt astonished because of the freedom I had from my family and the choices that were mine and only mine to make. The option to do what I want when I want was surreal as if I was in a fantasy. Other moments during midterms and finals I felt overwhelmed and felt like I was running out of gas because of the academic pressure from all my classes at one time drove me insane. I felt trapped as if two walls were closing in on me
Office of Residential Life. My experiences have taught me how to build strong relationships with different groups. In the past, I have explored other options and have since built a clearer vision for my professional goals; as I want to reach my full capacity with an organization I believe in. My abilities are backed by my experiences and knowledge. I assure you that this will allow me to successfully help ensure a safe living environment, where residential students feel welcomed and comfortable with their living arrangements, as we work together to build a strong community and Stockton family.
While I had never been to the New Student Programs building, thanks to the campus map, I was able to find it rather easily. Professor Korey, after I had waited a few minutes in the waiting room, as he is assuredly a busy man as he is an associate professor of the Biology Department and a director of the First Year Experience, greeted me back to his office. The office itself had enough room to fit in a decent sized desk for him to do his work and a table for meetings comfortably, but was a little cluttered with papers, books, a few soccer bags, presumably for his children, and his laptop which he had been working on before our interview. After speaking with him for a few minutes, it was obvious that he is passionate about his work in the nervous system of fruit flies and crustaceans as he has an incredible interest in the inner workings of those systems and has since his days as an undergraduate. To further his work he himself, with the help of graduates and a couple of undergraduates, work extensively researching different parts of the nervous system.
Cornell’s College of Arts and Sciences, offers countless intellectually exciting opportunities. I genuinely believe that Cornell places great importance in seeing all of their graduates succeed and best prepares them to make the changes each student desires to see in the world. The college is a wonderful place of higher learning that encourages academic freedom while finding your passions. All of Cornell’s graduates are all well-rounded individual’s because of having such an incredible opportunity to study various subject matters within Cornell’s College of Arts and Sciences. Even outside of the classroom, I have been told by several Alumni and Alumnus, that they didn’t just learn within lecture.
Twelve hours and thirty-two minutes. 805 miles. One flat tire. That’s how long it took us to drive to the Big Apple from small town Georgia. Of course, that doesn’t even factor in the stops we had to make when someone’s stomach growled or they couldn’t hold their bladder any longer.
The Rose Parade is a beloved American New Year’s tradition that has enchanted me for as long as I can remember. As a first generation immigrant who traveled six thousand miles to start a new life, I never dreamed that I would have the chance to participate in such an incredible tradition. But, in 2015, my color guard teammates and I marched in the world-renowned event. The opportunity to be a part of the Rose Parade with an organization that meant so much to me remains one of my most memorable life experiences. But my road to the Rose Parade was a long and hard one, paved with many trials and life lessons along the way.
The service learning project was a an interesting experience that made me see how to approach resident`s physical, spiritual, and psycho-social well-being of each resident that I worked with. Throughout the interview one to one (room visit), I noticed how I can make a different in someone`s else daily routine by communication with the person and I liked to see their smile and they were happy to talk to any staff visit or volunteer with a positive response. I learned that one to one programming , the programming to residents who will not or cannot effectively plan their own activity or residents needing specialized or extended programs to enhance their overall daily routine and activity pursuit needs. Program of activities includes a combination
