UT Lead Experiences and lessons learned

Being in UT Lead I have learned a lot. I have become better acclimated to campus. I have learned some things about being on my own and responsibility for myself only and not others. The many meetings and activities that we've been having have been helping me to become more sociable and more accustomed to speaking out. It has also raised my confidence level a little, not only about coming to college, but also about myself.! I have matured so much in the past few weeks that we've been here. Although I may complain every now and then, I am very grateful for having been chosen to be a part of the UT Lead experience.! :-)

Career Services

The last two days I've been to career services at Dunford Hall. It was okay. I liked that they gave me information about how to look up stuff about my major. It helped me to see if my major is right for me. I disliked that it was a two day process that it basically told me i should have an artistic major. I'm not exactly sure if that is what I want, but I do love the arts. I had already decided that I was going to major in Forensic Psychology and minor in dance. I think that is still what I'm going to do. Maybe I'll join the choir or something to fulfill my "artistic" nature. Only time will tell. I'll keep you posted. :-)

What Stands Out About College?

When you think about college, what stands out?

College, college, college. What stands out about college? Generally when people think about college they think, oh no! Four more years of school! Some also think PARTY, PARTY PARTY! Finally I'm Free of Parents! Very rarely will you find someone talk more about the education, library, and actual responsibility that will be enthroned on them when first leaving for college. Yes, I admit, I am somewhat of a nerd. I look forward to long nights in the library working on a research paper that i didn't start on until the day before it going to be due, rather than in the latest party by the kappas where all the "cool" people will be. I look forward to getting an enriching education that I know I will be working endlessly toward. Not to say that I haven't ever thought about partying and just having fun. It has crossed my mind quite a few times, but it still isn't as appealing to me as the library. But i know that I can be all work and no play. :-) So now I'm with the rest of them. PARTY PARTY PARTY!!!!! lol. =)
