Hi, my name is Ariel. Coming from a private high school that was very lenient, the adjustment to college has been difficult. Although the transition has been difficult, I have begun getting used to college life and am starting to enjoy it. I live in long island, which makes the commute to school every day very annoying. Sometimes, when I don’t feel like going back home after school, especially when I end classes late at night, I sleep over at my brothers apartment which is located just a few blocks away from Baruch. This makes my life a lot easier because I can get an extra hour of sleep in which allows me to focus more in my classes. In my opinion, the major difference between college and high school is that in high school teachers care about students and care if they do well, but in college, professors wont hesitate to fail a student if they don’t earn good grades on tests.
During my free time, I like to go to the gym and work out. My favorite sports to play are basketball and football. I played these sports frequently during high school but during college I have had less time on my hands to make time to play. My favorite football team is the New York Giants, while my favorite basketball team is the New York Knicks.
For those of you that took the time to read this, I am sorry.
