What is your role in the Baruch and broader community as a Baruch Scholar in the honors program and what do you think it should be? How is this related to the culture of service the honors program promotes?
In Baruch, I believe my role as a Baruch Scholar is to excel in my academics as well as extracurriculars. As a Baruch Scholar, I feel the need to represent Baruch Honors Program by being an active member of the Baruch community. To do so, I think that I would have to join clubs! In regards to the broader community, I should definitely give back as a Baruch Scholar. Being a Baruch Scholar is a great privlege. Not many people can graduate from college debt-free. Seeing that I can, I definitely should do acts of charity, no matter how big or small.
This is related to the culture of service the honors program does because the directors already acknowledge that Baruch Students are privleged as well. And they also acknowledge that in order to be a well-rounded person, we must learn the essence of humanity and giving before becoming professionals.
Learning the balance between giving and taking is an important quality to possess in life. And Baruch Honors service program is just another way to enforce that ideal.
