I will not lie to you UNC Wilmington was not my first choice of schools, I was the kid who wanted to get out of the area and explore. My dreams originated elsewhere in big cities living in the fast lane and no turning back. I felt this way all of the way up until about two weeks ago, this was when I realized everything I want and or need in life is right here in Wilmington. Love also played a big factor in my decision to want to attend UNC Wilmington but a love much more than that of any significant other this love is for my school. I attend Heide Trask High School, it is very small and the athletics are very lack luster at best. Instead of the person that is ready to get as far away as they can from their high school I have now come to realize that my heart is in Rocky Point. I feel an obligation to make Trask great.
Philosophy is the love of wisdom. The Greek roots of the word philosophy, “Philo” and “Sophos” mean love, and wisdom, respectively. If asked “What is success?” philosophers provide different answers, but acknowledge superior education as imperative to success. As SUNY Geneseo claims, “Engaging in philosophical thinking is essential to a superior liberal arts education.” As a school of excellent repute, SUNY Geneseo offers the excellent education I require to succeed.
I am interested in Howard University because it is an HBCU that encompass the themes of cultural diversity and education. Your commitment to scholars ensures me that at your school I will be right at home. Since I intend on on going down a medical path, I know that Howard University will provide me with best resources to follow my dreams. As a child I was always interested in the worlds around me and how things worked. As a result I participated in a Summer Enrichment Program located at Indiana University in Bloomington. There I explored all of the different STEM fields. From the experience I have developed a love for biology and learning how small things affect larger things in the world around me. The next summer I participated in the Summer Science Research
The heart of New York City is New York University. By joining the network of NYU, I will be able to study at an institution that has a long tradition of academic excellence among private universities in the United States. Additionally, I will be able to be part of an internationally recognized learning network with locations all across the globe. It would be a pleasure to study at a globally recognized university. A friend of mine who is a recent graduate from NYU College of Nursing has praised the program and conveyed to me a very positive experience. The curriculum allows students a hands-on medical approach in the Clinical Simulation Learning Center for those that are enrolled at NYU. The simulation lab has high technology manikins that resemble a real patient. These
Picking to attend a Community college for me is the best choice that I picked for my education. Community colleges provide a great service to students in many more ways other than just education. They help students who are unsure what they want to do or are unable to attend a four year university. Community Colleges also provide continuing education even after they have gotten a degree and a job.
As a senior at Little Falls High School, I truly believe my time here has brought me various opportunities to succeed and accomplish goals for not only myself, but my school and community as well. The opportunities given to the body of students at Little Falls stays true to the school 's mission statement: To be educationally affective and academically effective. Personally, all of my high school achievements, activities and future goals have and will continue to represent my experience at Little Falls.
Thank you for your generous award to me from the Paul W Priebe Schorlaship. Your support helps me to pursue my education, to meet the achievement of a lifelong dream.
“I’m going to go to Italy and take BUL3310 and also MAN4340”, I blurted out to my friends as we talked about our future endeavors. I remember saying this but not knowing how to really put those words into actions. Going to Florida State University, I wanted to take advantage of more than just the football games. I wanted to be able to travel, grow, and learn. Maximizing my resources is an important trait to have in regards to actually being in college. At the University I am enrolled in there is about 1,391.54 acres of land and school buildings. So I wanted to at least conquer the International Affairs Programs building and also maximize my resources in the Advising office.
The first day of school, I made a group of friends that I stuck with all four years. For three years, I was a varsity member of the debate team. Just this year, I graduated as the valedictorian. I’ll never know if I would have succeeded at the other school, but I don’t regret my decision in the
I was standing there at the edge of a fifty foot tall cliff petrified with anxiety and fear. This wasn't a stupid attempt at suicide, rather a stupid attempt at having fun before summer inevitably comes. I knew my summer already wasn't going to be fun, I signed up for algebra 2 summer school classes. So I and a few friends decided we would go to Maunawili Falls a 6 mile hike to a waterfall with a 50 foot cliff. It took us 2 hours of being covered in sweat, going through bushes, up and down hills overrun by mosquitoes to get there. Once I got to the waterfall I immediately dropped my stuff at a nearby boulder and began climbing up a slope leading to the cliff. Being ahead of all my friends up the slope, I could feel my heartbeat beating harder as every step went by while simultaneously thinking "if I turn back now it'll be easier to go down the hill". But eventually I made it to the top, with the first thing that I saw was a
I am currently a graduate student working toward my master’s degree in Sports Business at NYU. I have worked multiple internships over the last three years focusing on a variety aspects related to the sports industry. However, it was not until I worked for the SMU football team that I realized I wanted to be apart of the football side of the industry in the NFL. While working for the SMU team I was able to travel to all away games and got a chance to see and understand what it takes to run a Division I program. I parlayed my time with SMU into a training camp internship with the New York Jets working in their Football Operations department. This was another successful step in the right direction. I was able to learn first hand the logistics that go into running a NFL team. I was able to interact with players, coaches, and the football staff. Now as I look toward the future I would love the opportunity to experience the NFL at the league level. I have experienced the club side and now would love to learn more about how the NFL operates on a daily bases.
I have always felt integrated in my love for education. Discrimination never stole from what felt like an intellectual thirst I could not quench. Attending college had been a goal of mine since I was young, conceived from the curiosity of the world I could not touch with my hands. Unfortunately education in our society is no longer seen as freedom to explore culture and world knowledge, but as mandatory attendance in an institution where the individual is only perceived as successful when their degree is in practice.
I was given an opportunity that most students looking at colleges didn't have, I had the opportunity to live with my brother for a week at Syracuse.This was the best college visit I had ever done because I got to see exactly what student life was like, something that no tour that I have taken has given me thus far. My visit was at the right time because school spirit was at an all time high. The basketball team was on their way to the final four, so everyone was incredibly proud to be a part of the Syracuse Orange. In addition to this I really felt as if I was home, even though I was 14, I did not feel out of place once. Everyone I came into contact with was genuinely nice. Students walking around campus were always smiling and laughing.
In the beginning, my comfort level on a scale from 1 to 10 with 10 being the greatest comfort, I was a 1. I was unsure of what to say and how others would react to what I said. I have never been the greatest actor either. After working with others in my triads, I realized we are all in the same boat. There are some students that are great at what they say in the session and others like me, who are still unsure. Watching each classmate, I noticed we all began getting better acquainted and comfortable with one another. As a class, we grew closer. I began getting more comfortable with my fellow classmates and my comfort level did rise to at least a 7. A 7 is progress for me and progress is always great to feel.
The school of my dreams resides in the melting pot of the world 's most sophisticated theories and ideas - New York City. Compared to the institute I am enrolled in now, New York University would provide me many opportunities to become exposed to different cultures and ideologies given the diversity of New York University’s students and New York City’s population. New York University would further expose me to diversity and submerge me in creativity and individuality that cities such as New York City thrive on. My focus as an International Business Student would greatly benefit from these aspects of New York University as I hope to work in future environments where I am constantly introduced to, and interacting with people from all backgrounds.
