They would rationalize that a college degree was an invaluable and necessary document within our modern world. In addition, my parents were experts at strategizing finances. We decided to take out smart loans for my college education, which allowed my parents to help finance my interest while I was still in school. Overall, the economic approach is important in explaining my search process. Although I cannot consciously remember my parents performing a cost-benefit analysis, my college journey was set in motion from the moment my parents moved.
However, there is still much to be done. As a sophomore in college without any idea about what my future holds, I think that I would like to be a part of this movement in one way or another, so I am majoring in Diversity & Community Studies. Before doing the I-Search, I knew a little bit about the Diversity & Community Studies major. This major has the potential to lead to many different jobs, most of which seem to serve the community or society in some way. I also knew about some of the classes that are required for completion, such as a class called Public Problem-Solving that I am in this semester.
Why are you planning to attend Oakton? Include your educational goals/career interests/professional aspirations and your plans to meet these goals. I am planning to attend Oakton because having known my financial situation for some time now, going to community college is the best choice for me. This is especially thinking in the long run. My goals at Oakton are to graduate with a 3.5 or above GPA and to take courses to help me get my general education out of the way which will allow me to focus more on the classes that I need in order to succeed in my major and to help increase my understanding with the job I hope to pursue.
In high school I was able to choose an elective that had great appeal to me- Chicano Studies. This was a new course at my high school, it was providential for me that the course became available because of the large impact it had on my life. In this course we studied, the history of Mexico and its influence on current culture, past civil rights leaders, and the topic that struck me the most, current events. Our teacher, Mr. Pisano, expressed his alacrity to teach the course to the administration at our high school, and with appeal he was able to teach one section of the course. Not knowing what to expect exactly, I signed up for the course eager to learn more about my Mexican-American roots.
I have also gotten involved in SAA here at UNI. That stands for Student Admissions Ambassadors. In SAA we give campus torus and invite, inspire and inform anyone who comes in contact with UNI. This is the organization where I really learned more about Student Affairs. I sat down with my advisor and we talked about my career goals and aspirations.
As a Criminal Justice graduated student who is presently pursuing a master’s degree in Applied Philosophy and Ethics at Texas State University, I am writing to request a potential opportunity of employment as an entry level U.

Throughout my undergraduate career I maintained a 4.0 GPA and currently hold a 4.0 GPA in graduate school.
The Bexar County Community Supervision and Correction Department is the location I spent doing my internship this past fall. During my academic career at The University of Texas at San Antonio I was preparing for my exit and ultimately my career opportunities that would be offered or sought after my graduation. While attending UTSA I was fortunate enough to receive an in depth perception of the many job fields that majoring in Criminal Justice offers. Overall I was satisfied with the academic preparation of the curriculum, networking opportunities, internship expectations and my personal achievement in the internship. The internship is an important aspect of the degree plan in that in helps to incorporate what has been learned in academia
Senior Year: Social Justice Seminar My senior year at Loyola, I attended my first social justice training seminar as part of the Peer Advisor’s new initiative to include social justice into their curriculum. The seminar’s main focus was the discussion of race. The mention of this topic initially made me feel uncomfortable and embarrassed; race was seen as a taboo topic within my family and school life. However, the seminar was far from uncomfortable; we unpacked the benefits inherent in Whiteness, the social construction of race, and what it meant to have privilege. As I learned new concepts with my peers, I began to understand my identity as a White individual on a deeper level.
Sophmore year was an awakening for me. It was the year that I could apply to college classes at George Washington University. Taking classes at GW was my ultimate reason for going to School Without Walls high school. I desperately wanted to graduate with an Associates degree. I wanted to be able to show that I was capable of handling college assignments and that I could reedem myself.
Introduction When I first saw the syllabus of this class, I was looking forward to doing the service learning project as I have only been to only one in the past. I believe that service learning is important as part of a quality college education because I believe that people learn best through experiences. Also, service learning is important as part of a quality college education because, during the service, there will be numerous opportunities for students to learn new things. For instance, I am a business major student but I know about the history of the Gold Park and the benefits of the plants there through the service learning project. Now, I also learn about the history of the Coast Salish Tribe and their culture.
I chose to write about the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. because I am very interested in the history. I have heard many things about the African American Greek life and I want to learn more. I feel that being on campus here at Oklahoma State University, I need to take advantage of the African American organizations offered here in Stillwater. Not just yet, as a freshman, am I going to pledge for anything
As a hopeful future undergraduate at IUPUI, I am eager to participate in the nursing program. Currently I am taking a class at my high school that will allow me to become a certified nursing assistant if I pass the state exam. Although I have only started this school year, I can tell that I have found my passion through nursing. With this simple goal, I plan to focus on my school work and dedicate my time at IUPUI. Besides the school aspect, I also want to participate in numerous extracurricular activities offered.
After a few meetings, I was intrigued with the leadership of ASUW’s cooperative organization and was elected to be senator. My experience as a student senator has developed my innate leadership and challenged me to grow. It has inspired me to continue to devote my time to represent the underrepresented. I have learned
Why do you want to participate in the Bridges Summer Program? Participating in the Bridges Summer Program will help me greatly in the transition between high school and college. Reading about the program I have learned that this program is meant to help students transition to a college-level work environment and I know that I need this type of help. The good thing about this program is that they help students individually and this way students will have a better chance at really being prepared to start college in the fall. I want to participate in this program so that I can take advantage of how the program will help me to reach my career goal and transition from Valencia to UCF by directconnect.
Similar courses, coupled with photography offerings, would allow me to further advance my skills. After traveling solo in India and Nepal during the past two summers to teach English, I grew inspired and eager to experience as much as possible in the world. I am interested in a global classroom and eventually studying abroad, possibly in Africa and Asia. Lewis and Clark’s Indian Region Area Study Program would allow me to take
