I used the image of Christopher Columbus discovering the new world because this picture clearly defined my experience here at Baruch. Coming into college is kind of like an adventure your not really sure exactly what to expect, what your professors are going to be like, and if you’ll make any friends. Its a journey that requires courage and patience. Everyday I learned something like what type of services are available at Baruch and where I can find them. Sometimes you make journeys alone at first and later on find people to come with you. During your journey you run through obstacles and find ways to overcome them. This is how my experience at Baruch has been like. It has been a continuous journey of good days and bad days. At first I was lonely and I wasn’t knowledgeable about my surrounding now I have a few friends and can help direct other on where to find a classroom or professor. Every journey is a lesson and a reward presents itself. If someone we didn’t take a risk we might not have discovered America or go to the moon. You have to be open to the journey and whatever may come along with it. So far I have had a decent time at Baruch and I’m still open to what this journey has in store for me.
