Without the services and resources that Baruch offers it would be exceedingly difficult to become a successful college student. There is much more to the college experience than maintaining a GPA. Baruch offers the students many different resources that help them improve in generally every area of study and skills while building a strong resume.
In high school I was involved in many different organizations, clubs, and activities through the school as well as through the community. Soon after joining my first extra curricular activity my Freshmen year of high school I realized how important it was to be involved in more than simply my studies. At Baruch I have joined Cents Ability. We are currently working on a group presentation for the Freshmen SEEK students here at Baruch. During my time at the organization, I hope to improve upon my public speaking, group, and communication skills. SACC has been a major help when handling the stresses of my math class. They help to build my confidence in the subject and give me the extra practice that I need. The honor’s lounge and library have provided at great place to study.
Participating in the Community Service Project has helped me to research the events and services that I can obtain through Baruch. Finding an organization that met all of our needs was more difficult than expected. We had to call numerous organizations to find somewhere that we could all agree upon. The research we did showed us the great amount of need there is for volunteers. Without the library we would not have had a quiet, secluded place to go to discuss our presentation and the organization we chose.
Over the next three years, I hope to remain a member of the Honor’s community. I would like to obtain an internship before the end of my junior year in a multinational banking corporation. I also hope to hold a lead position in one of Baruch many financial clubs. I plan to gain all I can from Baruch and take the knowledge, skills, and friendships I receive beyond my college career.
