As a Baruch scholar my responsibilities include those within the Baruch community as well as the outside community. I must maintain my GPA and over the next four years and build up the best possible resume I could possible build. I must strive to do every task I can and not just aim for the minimum requirements. As a Baruch scholar I must serve as a leader to the school as a whole and in each and every class. During class I must serve an active role and push myself so I can learn the most that I am capable of. As the years go on I should engage in the Baruch student government and help make Baruch a better school and one more suitable to the student body in my eyes. My duties in Baruch will never always be fulfilled because there are endless opportunities that I can complete.
Relating to the broader community, I must complete a minimum of 15 hours of community service. I must set an example and prove to others that community service is not something to stress about, but should be done voluntarily. In a tough economy, the possibilities of service are endless and we as Baruch students must fulfill these possibilities. Therefore, as a scholar it is my duty to not just do 15 hours of community service, but to do many more hours. By the end of our four years, we should be experts in time management and be able to help others in every possible way we can.
As a Baruch scholar I accept the service requirements that I must do, and look forward to surpassing them. I am almost positive that I will continue my community service job in the summer at a local basketball camp as well as complete more community service. The requirements set I think are perfect, because if you want to do community service it should be done out of the “Goodness of your hearts” and not required. This is related to the culture of the honors program because we as scholars understand that we are completing the service, not to check off a box, but rather because we want to do community service.
