My experience at Baruch College was great. It didn’t live up to my expectations, but it wasn’t as bad as i thought it would be. I always wanted to go to Syracuse University, and i feel that that school would have been a better fit for me but its alright. Everyone I new who attended Baruch told me it was going to be bad, and i was going to hate all my professors, but luckily i didn’t. I met a lot of new intelligent people and made a lot of new friends that i enjoy being around. I honestly don’t know how well i did my first semester at Baruch. I guess i did OK but i could have done much better if i just tried a little harder. My first semester made me realize that college is no joke, and that i have to get my act together if i want to succeed in life. If i were able to do the whole semester over again, I probably would have took school much more seriously and tried much harder. I don’t think I’ve changed much from Baruch, but i definitely have matured living all on my own in the city. Living on my own made me realize i need to get my act together and start taking school very seriously if i want to succeed in life.
