There are many different types of people in the college world. The differences expand the further up the levels you go. I have met various personalities in the short amount of time that I’ve been at Hinds. One thing I have found is that many of us share the same goals and what we hope to accomplish in our college tour. I plan on achieving academic excellence, obtaining my degree, and meeting new people that could possibly be life-long friends.
Academics has always been a top priority in my family. My father has pushed making good grades and studying hard since I was in kindergarten. As the years have progressed, the studying has become easier and I have no problem taking tests. College has proved to be a completely different situation. Some of my classes are challenging, but I know that I must endure this to achieve a sense of satisfaction. On my journey of pursuing academic excellence, I know that I must be prepared to work hard, study, and put forth my best effort.
The next most important goal of mine is to obtain my degree. I am majoring in psychology, something I have been interested in since I was a small child. Getting my associate’s degree would mean the world to me and signify to my family and I that all these years of hard work have paid off. The college has an excellent psychology program and I’m very interested, which definitely makes things easier on me. I’m still just as interested in psychology as I was years ago.
Friends are an important part of the college atmosphere. My final goal is to meet as many people as I can in hopes of having some life-long friends. Being surrounded by people with a common interest is one of the best feelings I’ve ever experienced. So far, I have met tons of people that seem highly interested in the college life and are very goal oriented. This works for me because I am a very goal oriented person myself.
