So this is what being a bearcat is like huh. I’ve found Baruch to be such a different experience, by constantly meeting new people with different ambitions and getting to know them. I really didn’t know what to expect from the school, I knew that it was a commuter school so I figured it wasn’t really going to feel like a school but thanks to my block and volleyball I got to enjoy my first semester. I think Baruch exceeded my expectations by far, I didn’t plan on meeting such hilarious or motivated individuals. Especially Eddie, Mirlinda, Toni the tree, Kate, Jasmine, and Tori. Honestly I feel like the first semester flew by, after September everything just feels like a fast paced blur, well minus the ridiculous pain-staking long Precalc class we had to endure. Although I think I could have done better in classes, there’s always room for improvement, after all we were all still adjusting to the high school-college experience. But now that the semester is coming to an end, I know what to expect next semester and won’t make the same mistakes as I did this one. If I could start the semester over, I think I’d actually try to learn. Well, as in I’d give more effort into my work and try to be a lot more organized. I think procrastination hit an all-time high for me this semester and assignments are currently piled up and I dread having to face them. I feel now that I’ve experienced a bit of Baruch, I’ve realized this is the real thing, that no jokes aside this is where everything counts. I feel I changed in that now I realize how important my academics are and how far they’re going to take me. Now that I’ve realized this and luckily it’s early on, I will and have been a lot more determined on doing well lately. I’ve been open to different perspectives and more willing to hear others out. I’m content with the way my experience at Baruch has gone, and I feel like as from now it can only better.
