  5. I selected this workshop because my friend and I had planned beforehand to attend this one.  It took me outside my comfort zone because it was filled with professors and higher level students.
  6. This workshop failed my expectations and I would not recommend it to another student because the speaker read off her paper in an non-interesting and boring way.
  7. I did not learn anything from this workshop.  It was hard to understand the speaker and the pace at which she spoke made it even harder to catch what she was saying.

  4. It was suppose to show us the importance of first impressions and how to manage the way people perceive your image.

  6. I did not have any expectations because I just wanted to get it over with but overall it was fun and I would therefore recommend it to another student.
  7. From this workshop I do not think I learned anything but it was fun just to talk to other people in Baruch and find out why they decided to go there.

New York Piano Society

1. New York Piano Society Holiday Concert

2. Arts at Baruch

3. Saturday, Decemeber 5, 2009/7:30p.m. – 9:oop.m.

4. At this workshop, the New York Piano Society members came to play music on the piano at Baruch. These people who played the piano are not pianists. They have their own jobs (doctors, writers, journalists, etc.) but they love playing the piano, so they came to Baruch to perform.

5. I have maybe two reasons why I chose this workshop. First, I needed to get another workshop in for FRO and this was the last one. Another reason was because the calendar said it was going to be a holiday concert.

6. I thought this workshop was okay. I was expecting that some of the people playing the piano would have played holiday music. To my surprise this did not happen. For that reason I really did not enjoy the concert. Overall, however, I thought that these people are really talented and that they did not play bad at all. I stared at their hands and I just think it’s amazing how they could play the piano like that.

7. I would recommend this event to anyone who likes to listen to the piano, or anyone who wants to do something different. I had never gone to an event to watch and listen people play the piano and this was a good opportunity. What made it even better was that it was FREE. I should have been on the lookout for other events that were free also. This event was something new for me and I enjoyed it! (I would have enjoyed it much more if they played holiday music =[ )

5.I originally chose this workshop to fullfill the final requirement, but I ended up enjoying it because it was suprisingly useful. It took me outside of my comfort zone because I am not used to learning anything useful at Baruch workshops.

6.This workshop exceeded my expectations. I learned a lot of things that I never really thought about before concerning job interviews.

7.I would recommend this workshopt to others because it was suprisingly useful, unlike the other ones. Also, I found the elevator speech really interesting.

7. I would recommend this workshop. It was the most informative workshop. I thought it would be like previous workshops that just didn’t help me that much at all. But the presenters there ended up teaching me something and I feel more confident going into future job interviews.
