I could observe the Broken Windows Theory in the restoration projects I took part in, cleaning up neighborhoods and helping to plant greenery to support a cleaner environment. I observed the presence of Differential Association Theory in the afterschool involvement programs, the academic tutoring groups, and the mentorship programs where I witnessed elementary through high school students learn important skills from both undergraduate and graduate students. I participated in these community service initiatives since I have served as a Service Saturday Site Leader beginning the second semester of my freshman year and additionally spent three semesters as an Impact Weekly Site Leader. Additionally, during my sophomore year I served as a Community Service Ambassador. During my tenure in this position I assisted both organizations and students find and form research projects for themselves and others to take part in.
Finally, at the concluding Future Physician Leaders Reception at the UCR Palm Desert campus, my teammates and I presented our project to Congressman Raul Ruiz - the founder of the program - in hopes of persuading him to enact change within our community. We were able to show him how access, not just affordability of healthcare, is an increasing predicament within Riverside Community. It was through this effort that my team hopes to help both the low-income and homeless members of our community and achieve more adequate access to healthcare in Riverside
It 's a learning experience for a few veterans, but with the help of Point Park veterans have their admission fee waived and get early registration. This helps take a little bit of the strain of college life off their shoulders. In addition, veterans are encouraged to go to the student veteran service if they need any help. Point Park 's veteran 's representative Deb Bateman is there to try and help them with any problems. "I am privileged to serve this population, it 's
This is currently my first year enrolling in Richland College, but the experience is just the beginning. The earliest memory of reading was all the syllabus that each class had before school started. I chose to be in college because I’m striving for a better future, instead of working at a retail store and less pay for all the work I’ve contributed. Being an expert reader can help me out in the long run because it helps me with comprehension and critical thinking when I encounter a real world problem. Now getting in idea of what we are doing in class, I think you are doing just fine helping me prepare for what is ahead of me and I greatly appreciate that.
Transitioning from high school to college was a big difference. Materials from high school was provided to all students free of charge. Students only needed to buy materials they needed; pens, pencils, notebooks, etc. While in college you're responsible for everything, either you're living on campus or not, it was your responsibility for all materials. I knew college was going to be expensive, but I never realized a simple history book would cost me $250, without tax.
The first improvement Chi Omega has made in my life is academic. To begin with, I can remember that having four hours of study hall a week was overwhelming with everything else I had to do. Over time though I became grateful for the requirement that I actually had to sit down and focus for a little while and not multitask on several different projects. I found that I was much more organized because I was setting time aside to plan while putting away all other distractions.
I have now buckled down and have focused all my energy on my school work. I am about to be the first person in my family to have a college degree. This couldn’t have been possible without my fiancé help and support. He puts in extra hours and works side jobs just to pay all the bills, while I focus on my school work. He even is supported of all my activities that I try to plan for other students.
This text discussed the important skills that every successful collaborative leader should have. The first skill collaborative leaders should have is the ability to understand what needs to be changed before changing it. In my high school we had many students who came from low income families and were unable to purchase their own clothing, I wanted to change this. Another skill is to be able to obtain followers who share your same beliefs and values. It took some work, but I was able to get some of my fellow classmates to come together and help me create this club.
I am incredibly grateful to have received this scholarship. I am currently on the way to graduate with my Early Childhood Education degree in the spring of 2018. It has been a bit of a rocky road for me in my college years; I support and live by myself, and the cost of paying my tuition has weighed heavily on my shoulders. By being selected to earn this scholarship, I can now focus more on my education instead of my financial issues that comes with paying tuition. After I earn my degree, I plan to work in a school district in Licking County as a preschool/kindergarten teacher.
There is always a group of students after graduation or even before graduation who cannot see their selves continuing school for another four years. Especially when they have alternative options some students in high school would spend most of their day at high school and after lunch, they spend their day at a trade school. During their time at a trade school, they get a further learning on skills that high schools do not provide. Skills in plumbing, automotive, cosmetology, fashion design, heating and cooling, and many more different jobs. Most parents stress that important it's getting into college after high school because degrees look good on your résumé, and it can get you further in your career.
