I don’t really have much to say about whether my experience at Baruch lived up to my expectations or not. I didn’t really have any major expectations before coming to Baruch, except for the usual “lots of reading and papers.” I just viewed it almost as a continuation of high school. So I don’t really have much to say in this area. Though I will say that I miss gym class. That’s about the only thing that disappointed me the most about college. I had tons of fun during gym class in high school; now, I can only reminisce about those times.
I think my first semester at Baruch went pretty well. I got decent grades, but just not as good as I would like them to be. But finals week is coming up: one last chance to redeem myself?
I think I will work a little bit harder to get perhaps slightly better grades if I could do this all over again. But whom am I kidding? I know that I’ll still slack off. And maybe I would join a club. It’s near the end of the semester and I still haven’t gotten to doing that yet.
I really honestly don’t think I’ve changed at all. Or maybe now I’m willing to spend more time doing schoolwork, but I think that’s about it. Nothing major happened during the first semester that would’ve changed me.
