The plight of waking up at 5:30 in the morning is a small price to pay for an education. This is what I tell myself when the dreaded alarm goes off and the time comes to prepare for the school day. I may gripe. I may grumble. But deep down, I know that I wouldn't have it any other way. School is a means of self-improvement, an investment in one’s self. That being said, throughout my four years at Wake Forest anything can and will transpire, but on commencement day at Hearn Plaza, there is one thing that will be certain: I will be better than I was when I started.
One thing that is certain is that I will learn. Class after class, I will leave knowing more than I did when I entered. But outside of class, I will spend hours on the infamously quiet top floor of the Reynolds’ library honing what I have learned. Knowledge spawns such magnificent things and best of all it can’t be taken away. I could be beaten and bruised, breaths away from the face of death, but I still have my knowledge.

Essay on High School vs. College: A Personal Experience - High School vs. College During high school, I did not have to study as hard as I do now that I am in college. Usually, I would be able to study the day before the test and score a hundred percent. Although, occasionally, I would be able to skip a few classes and get the notes from a classmate or of course, resort to guessing. However, now that I am in college, the lectures require much more attentiveness and are more complex: composing more information, meaning that one has to proportion time more responsibly and take an advantage of good study habits....   [tags: high school experience, college experience] 547 words

Lowering Drinking Age Essay - Society normally views teenagers as rebellious kids with an impulse to live new experiences. These experiences range from going to their first party to having their first alcoholic drink, and are sometimes as drastic as trying their first drug. Drinking alcoholic beverages is something that involves a lot of responsibility and can bring a plethora of negative consequences. This is the main reason why the United States has established a legal drinking age that I consider to be relatively high. With the legal drinking age being so high, while intending to avoid harmful situations, brings many repercussions that are equally as harmful....   [tags: alcohol, teenagers, drinking, college, US]

Nursing Students Need Better Clinical Experiences Essay - Hospital, only one word but somehow is thought of in a bad connotation.

Student or Athlete: The Age Old Question of Paying College Athletes Essay - Take a moment with me and reflect about what the most important things to you are.

Approximately the average population is 7,225,784,900 people, how many of them care who wins the big game, and how many don’t give a notice to sports and question why it matters.

Essay on The Privilege of the College Experience - The Privilege of the College Experience At age four, I was a firewoman, fighting to save the spirits and possessions of those faced with devastation.

Nothing more notorious than a thief seemed to cross my 10-year-old mind. Unpractical but whole and with an intense fancy, I lived one hundred lives....   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 501 words

Essay on College and High School: Two Very Different Experiences - High school to college are two very different experiences. Many students enter college expecting the experience to be the same as the one they had while at high school. These students are wrong to make that assumption since they are so different. College costs more, presents more academic challenges, and offers a more social environment than high school, while both still provide students with knowledge and skills that could, and will, be useful in the future. First, in terms of cost, college is more expensive than high school because of tuition, living expenses, and books....   [tags: Cost, Workload, Activities] 834 words

Free College Admissions Essays: The College Experience - College Admissions: The College Experience In High School, college seemed to be the scariest thing that I could think of. Whenever I thought about it my stomach would immediately begin to spin in circles. Although I was ready to go off and be by myself and meet new people I was scared to death at the same time. I didn't know much about the "college experience" and what I did know (or thought I knew) scared me. I pictured hard classes that I wouldn't be able to keep up with, people that wouldn't like me, long hikes to get to my classes, and horrible food....   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 1215 words

Free College Admissions Essays: An Experience that Changed Me - College Admissions : Describe an experience that changed you The black pirate hat danced around in the air, weaving and bobbing to some Disneyland music. Attached to it was my head and the rest of me, being dragged along on this wild ride. The only sounds I heard were ones of trumpets soaring higher and higher, trying to hit an absurdly high note. The pirate hat and the warm Florida night had taken control, and my self-consciousness went right out the window. I danced, not greatly or with any skill whatsoever, but I danced....   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 1360 words

Free College Admissions Essays: My Experience - College Admissions : My experience To whom that cares!!. At this moment when I am sitting down here writing this, I suddenly think of this time last year when I was fresh out of high school, hearing about Berea for the first time. I sent my application to Berea with lots of confidence and hope, and I knew I was not accepted. College to me, as much as to many others, is so important. At the time I heard the news of my being denied, I was disappointed, but soon I realized that my failure was just among the many challenges that anybody has to face during their lifetime....   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 708 words
