The company of others

As of right now, I feel as if I have minimal to no role in the Baruch community. School spirit could be a little stronger. The lack of people in costumes during Halloween kind of shot the spirit of Baruch for me. Yes, I do enjoy the loud music playing every Thursday on the second floor. However, I feel that there is a need for stronger school-wide events, in contrast with small group commitments, as seen by the many sorority and fraternity logos everybody carries around. Don’t get me wrong, I do like the school and I commend our Bearcat mascot for walking around randomly, but I do want to see more school spirit.

Based on the Baruch Scholars community, however, I feel a little more in place. The idea of the learning community at first seemed a bit of an elementary school thing, but I have to admit that I like it. It becomes a bit like a family since we see each other frequently and at the end of the day, we always know who we can turn to if we need anything related to school. Everyone says that being a Baruch Scholar is working hard in college, but I see it more as a live blog of our college life. My friends are always telling me to work hard, and I am always reminding them to take a breather and relax. If your in college, you know that you have to work hard, so a Baruch Scholar is just like any other student. The difference is that we are able to share the opportunity together.

I agree with what all the adults say about all the smart kids in our school (Although, when they keep repeating it, it becomes pretty irritating). Many of us have been “honor” students for our entire educational careers and we’re all used to being handed good grades. We have always been surrounded by so many intelligent and fortunate people and given so much opportunity that we forget that there is an actual world out there. Being a Baruch Scholar brings us back to reality. All our education since our birth finally has a reason and a meaning. With college, we are only beginning our true lives where the Baruch Scholars are expected to take the place of leaders in the real world. So, there is no better way to start than going back and giving back to the source of our great education and opportunities through volunteering at local not-for-profit organizations.

And that couldn’t be more correct right here. Having said that, let me reveal to you just what exactly did give good results. The authoring is very convincing and this is probably why I am taking an effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, even though I can certainly notice the leaps in logic you make, I am not sure of just how you seem to unite the details which inturn make the final result. For the moment I will, no doubt yield to your issue however wish in the foreseeable future you actually connect your facts much better.
