Changes During College Have you changed since you started college? “Does Coming to College Mean Becoming Someone New?” by Kevin Davis talks about his journey through college and how the school system made him hate what he thought he loved. The question arose in his article: do you become someone different when you arrive at college? Through my experience here at SUNY Oswego for the first year, I would say you definitely learn to think differently when it comes to your major. This is not always a bad thing, in fact, it’s a positive benefit. Thinking differently and more critically about things helps you grow as a person. Myself being a broadcasting major, watching TV is very hard for me now. Coming to college changes your outlook on your major or field, yourself and even life in general. Before I started taking video production classes, I never realized all the work that goes into even just one thirty-second commercial. This class has drastically changed my perception of the broadcasting field and has gotten me more excited to graduate and find a job. Davis states that his teachers made him think a certain way as an English major, “When I became an English major, I didn’t just learn certain understandings of what I read; I also had to learn a particular way of reading and writing.” (Davis 115). Some people like this new way of reading and writing, and some people believe that their way is better and refuse to change their ways. If you are going to learn and advance in your college field, you are going to have to change your outlook to some degree in order to get a job in the real world. For example: the industries right now are using a program called Avid Mediacomposer to edit their projects. If I decided I didn’t want to learn that program because I was already sufficient in Finalcut Pro, then no one would hire me. You have to mold yourself to what the industry is looking for at the time. If you truly love your field, than this should not be a
After finishing my first semester as a college student, the challenges and changes that college bring aren’t as frightening as they once were. And while there are certain aspects of my future that still scare me, for the first time in my life I feel like I’m where I’m supposed to be. I have grown and developed so much as a person over the past three months, and I owe it all to my experiences at SUNY Oswego. College is an opportunity for people to grow and change, and be who they….
A Time for Change in College Attendees Independance
In response to the growing independence of college kids, writer Michelle Willins argues that college kids should have less independence in her article, “College Kids Have too Much Privacy.” She effectively builds an argument to persuade her audience by using pathos, a personal anecdote and stunning and startling facts.
Willins uses pathos to reach adults by providing series of examples that may apply to parents. She states that, “They can binge-watch….
you couldn’t catch a ball, to the time when it hurts just to stand, there are risks with any sport. So whenever college athletes step on the court, field, or wherever they compete, they are putting their bodies at risk, as well as future paychecks. In the history of NCAA there have been many professional careers either derailed or stopped forever because of injuries. In the 2006 college football season one of the best players, Michael Bush was playing for the Louisville Cardinals when he suffered….

presented with a host of exciting new opportunities. The Kent State University Honors College is one opportunity I am particularly excited about.
I decided to apply to the Honors College because I am a student who loves to be challenged. At my current university, I am not enrolled in an honors program, or am taking honors level classes. The reason for this is that as an incoming freshman, I was anxious about what my college workload would be like, and chose not to apply to the honors program. This is….

I am a student who feels that the college I am applying to is the perfect college for me. Entering my senior year of high school, I realized how independent I have become and what kind of student and person I am. The experiences of having my first job during this summer made me realize that through new experiences you can learn so much. I also realized that having a job for the first time may not be the most exciting time of my life, but I definitely learned a lot about working and being more independent….
College and high school have the same goal; which is to educate students and give them knowledge that will help them along the way in life. They both allow for growth and development, but have two completely different experiences. While high school is mandatory and helps prepare students for college academically, it can also teach life lessons that will never be forgotten. College is typically for students who would like to continue their education at a higher level and work towards achieving their….
