Journal #2 – What does it mean to serve your community?

What is my role in the Baruch community as a Scholar? First and foremost I am a student because my studies are more important than anything else. Because of my grades and two essays from high school I have been offered at seat in the Honors Program and my tuition has been taken care of. I recently received a letter stating how much I do not have to pay this year because I have obtained a scholarship from Max Brenner, a part of my community. So I feel the need, as a Baruch Scholar, to give back to my community because it was my community that allowed me to have an opportunity to go to school and learn for free. Doing volunteer work is very important because it shows that you are not just a student who goes to school and heads straight home after your classes because you get out there and interact with the world and meet new people all in the name of helping others. Steven, Ken, and I will be volunteering at a not for profit organization called Housing Works and we will be helping out in their Bookstore Cafe either organizing books, working behind the counter, or aiding them in any projects they may be working on at the time. Serving your community can also mean tutoring other students who don’t understand a subject such as math, science, etc. or don’t understand exactly how to do something. It is my responsibility to give back to my community because they have already given me so much.

If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass
