It’s hard to believe that my junior year of college is almost ending and that I will be a senior in…
After I receive that bright, shiny diploma, and I am no longer required to attend school, I plan on running away to join a circus. I am an amazing tightrope walker.
Just kidding. I have terrible balance and would fall as soon as I no longer had solid ground beneath my feet.
I hope that a similar demise will not befall me when I attempt my real post-secondary future.
If one will pardon the cliche, the first few weeks of college constitute a tremendous window of opportunity, an ever-so-brief time span that can very easily define what one does with the next two or four years of his or her life, and maybe more.
Gone are the needless cliques and the pointless reputations that influenced the ways others saw you, and perhaps the way you saw yourself. This is your moment to uncap a brand new marker and write the newest and finest chapter of your life to date.
The fall of one’s senior year is a crucial, confusing time period. It seems as if everyone and their mother has a plan for what they want to do with the rest of their lives, a game plan for what it’s going to take to set themselves up for these opportunities and a substantial drive in even the most unmotivated students to enact that game plan.
Many have been getting involved in their future fields for years Ñ making connections, gaining experience. They’re all ready to take the plunge in either the collegiate or working world. Everyone, that is it seems, except for you.
I always knew that I wanted to go to college; it wasn’t
even a question in my family because my parents (both
teachers) had always instilled in me the importance of
an education, and above all else the value of learning.
I believe I selected the right path because I know that where I
am is where I want to be and that feeling is entirely dependent
on the fact that I chose the right college.
Yo siempre supe que quería ir a la universidad; en
mi familia no cabía duda de eso ya que mis padres
(los dos siendo maestros) siempre instilaron en
mí la importancia de la educación, y sobretodo lo
importante de aprender. Creo que elegí el camino adecuado
por que sé que estoy donde quiero estar y ese sentimiento
depende totalmente en el hecho de haber elegido la universidad adecuada.
Profiles programs you may have never heard of but that could be big in the years to come.
