As a Baruch Scholar, my role at Baruch is to gain as much intellectual and practical knowledge as my brain can absorb and soak up. I look forward to taking insanely difficult courses with intimidating professors and learn from my outrageously smart peers in order to be the best student and ultimately employee, I can be. However, my role as a Baruch Scholar does not stop with just the intellectual aspects of being a student. Instead, being a Baruch Scholar means that because we are so unbelievably fortunate to be educated without having to pay a cent for it, it is our duty to become students who desire to give back to others less fortunate along with our local community at Baruch. As scholars, we are not entitled to have this amazing free education just because we all studied hard in high school. However, because we are given this unique opportunity, we should desire to help those in need, who are less fortunate than we are. My perspective on our role as Baruch Scholars is similar to the culture of service the Honors Program promotes. I also believe that not just the Honors Program at Baruch but colleges across the United States should have this emphasis on community service and on giving back to others around us. Considering that most of the world does not have this opportunity to go to college and achieve higher education, I believe our role as college students as a whole, should donate some of our time to serve our community.
