    ¿En Donde Encajo?

    Yo quería seguir una carrera en Ingles. Mientras la universidad se acercaba, esta decisión era una de las pocas cosas de las que yo estaba seguro. Mis padres nunca habían asistido a la Universidad, así que ellos no me podían decir que podía yo esperar de la vida universitaria.

    Yo no sabía cómo iban a ser las clases, si iba a tener la capacidad de manejar la cantidad de trabajo que esto significaba, si iba a poder tener un trabajo de medio tiempo, o si iba a poder hacer nuevas amistades. Lo único que me hacía sentir bien era que sabía que quería estudiar Ingles, porque escribir era lo mejor que yo sabía hacer.

    Dos años después, me di cuenta de que ya no estaba seguro de nada.

  • Finding a Second Home

    Finding a Second Home

    When I was a senior in high school, I simply wanted to go to college after high school graduation. I didn’t realize that my personal choice of going to the University of Dayton would impact my whole family.

    UD is tremendously far from home in Virginia Beach. My dad knew that I had to leave the nest someday. My brothers wanted me to stay home. My mother had the hardest time, dealing with the fact that her third son was growing up so darn fast. I knew that I had to grow up and to start experiencing what the real world would be like.

  • I Wouldn’t Change a Thing

    I Wouldn’t Change a Thing

    Close your eyes and picture yourself 20 years in the future. Do you see a family in a cozy home in the country? Do you see a busy life in a bustling city?

    Are you working 40 hours at a desk or out in the field? What do you see? This exercise will help you determine what you should do after graduation.

  • Where Do I Fit?

    Where Do I Fit?

    I wanted to be an English major. This decision was one of the few things I was certain of as college loomed closer and closer. My parents had never been to college, so they could not tell me what to expect.

    I did not know what classes would be like, or if I would be able to handle the workload, if I would be able to handle a part-time job, or if I would be able to make friends. The only thing I felt comfortable knowing was that I was going to major in English, because writing was what I was good at.

    Two years later, I realize that I was certain of nothing at all.

  • Jobs of the Future

    Jobs of the Future

    The jobs of the future are made up of vocations you may already be familiar with and those you may not have even known existed. The evolution of science and technology will continue to change the shape of and need for products and services consumers use every day.

    Future in-demand careers will not necessarily make you big bucks, but those in these vocations will have an edge over those who have basic job skills in vocations with average growth.

  • Don’t Worry, These Aren’t the Best Days of Your Life

    Don’t Worry, These Aren’t the Best Days of Your Life

    If the title didn’t draw you in, maybe this will: the things that most of you have lost sleep over in high school will mean nothing two years from now. In the grand scheme of things, if you’re lucky, the people you dated, parties you attended and teams you were on will be long forgotten. High school is a game, and the apparent “winners” are rarely winners in the long run.

    My freshman year, dozens of people told me not to get caught up in the petty, unimportant stuffÑunfortunately, I found this advice too cliche and completely ignored it.

  • Gap Year

    Gap Year

    Antonia Fraker was a motivated, intelligent, ambitious high school grad. But immediately after graduation she wasn’t headed to an Ivy League, or even a community college. At least not right away É and she’s not alone.

    With increasing pressure to achieve, more American high school graduates are feeling burnt out before they even receive their diplomas. But some, like Fraker, have found relief in a trick their British counterparts have known about for decades: the “gap year.”

  • What I’ve Learned This Year - Rachel

    What I’ve Learned This Year - Rachel

    This year so far has been a full on learning experience for me.

    Coming to Central Michigan University, I was unsure about what I wanted to pursue. I thought it would be fun to go into the broadcasting and journalism fields, but as I started to continue classes, I realized it was fun but something I didn’t want to make a life-long career. Both of those are my hobbies -- and don’t get me wrong they could make wonderful careers for someone out there -- but I knew it wasn’t my calling.

  • What I’ve Learned This Year - Ariel

    What I’ve Learned This Year - Ariel

    The answer to what you should not pursue may seem so obvious, yet it is so easily forgotten and overlooked: do not pursue perfection. Perfection is a myth that will drive you crazy. It will make you feel bad about everything, and make you find faults in everything.

    When perfection is your goal, you will feel worthless and everything around you will seem worthless. I know that sounds depressing. The sad part is many new college students begin college life with this “perfection syndrome.”

    I am very grateful for how my college life has turned out so far. This school year has taught me to pursue opportunities to develop myself in every situation. There is always something to learn.
