The institution provides a variety of support services for online students through the “Center for Learning and Advancement.” For instance, my student services advisor functions as both an academic counselor and a financial aid resource. As I transition to the second course, the advisor is an excellent contact for assistance about the systems and resources of the school. Given the fact that the doctoral journey is at least three years, the advisor might change during my term in the program, but the school will inform me of the change when that happens.

Therefore, I plan to continue my active involvement in extracurricular activities while I am a college student. As a junior in high school, I was inducted into the National Honor Society for doing exceptionally well in my academic endeavors and actively participating in volunteer events. My contributions through this organization have made a significant impact on both my personal development and my community’s support services. The numerous volunteer projects in which I have participated have prepared me to continue helping others in the future. Through projects such as building houses from the ground-up with Habitat for Humanity, I have developed teamwork skills, discovered my management potential, and increased my social network, all while working to provide services for less fortunate individuals in my community.
