I may not be the most decisive when choosing a degree, but my basis will stay the same, to make some sort of change big or small. College is a way for me to try things out and to find what I am talented at and enjoy. Applying to a university like SPU is a risk. I have never lived or been away from Hawaii for more than two weeks.
Throughout the essay, Charles Murray stresses the idea that college is the wonderland of finding oneself and to find the career that one would want to follow for the rest of their lives. “College is seen as the open sesame to a good job and a desirable way for adolescents to transition to adulthood. Neither reason is as persuasive as it first appears.” Murray, C (2008) Practically spoken, this is not normally the case. College is a fair amount of work, much more work than one would normally acquire through any course of a high school or secondary school setting.

Having the right attitude people will be able to avoid senioritis with full force.

If someone decides to start not caring during his or her senior year and go through the whole summer break with no school work, it will be hard to get back in the swing of things when the first year of college comes. Another way Weisman(2014), says to avoid senioritis is, take classes that give college credit (Weisman, 2014). Taking college credit during high school will save many people money and time in college.

The moments that may seem small or insignificant have the greatest chance to change one's life. For me, my small, insignificant moment happened sophomore year. Being in FFA was something I did not think could have such an impact on my life. But the moment I decided to run for our chapter office, was a moment that changed my life. I decided to take a leadership role through the FFA chapter, but it has turned into so much more.
When I first saw that ACA-122 was a required course to complete your Associate in Arts degree, I thought it was an unnecessary course to have to take. What else could I possibly learn about College Transfer Success at the end of my degree? To my surprise, as I come to the end of ACA-122 class, I find myself to be a more prepared student and future employee.

Now, to end everything off with a good impression. I hope you will consider me to be part of National Junior Honor Society with everything I have stated in my paper.
