Where did you come from and where are you going?

College, the turning point in a student’s life. No longer could you come in late everyday and not expect repercussions. No longer could you skip classes just because the weather wasn’t “A-ok.” No, now we had to carry a little something called responsibility on our backs. If a professor says to write an essay by a certain date, there was no handing it in a little late. It will be hard getting used to the first semester, yet nothing is harder than learning how to properly manage your time. Back in high school, we had a choice: a social life, good grades, or sleep. Pick 2 out of the 3. However the difference in college is that we have much more freedom. 2-3 hour breaks everyday aren’t meant to be playtime but in fact is valuable time that should be spent studying and doing homework. No wonder there’s a 24-hour library across the street. Yet time management isn’t the only problem. We also have to behave as adults. Courtesy, professionalism, little things like wearing shorts and sneakers to class can send a powerful message, though not in a good context. Sure, it’s really comfortable but now isn’t the time for that. We have to be furiously thinking about our future, about the image that we send to others. Seeing a person dressed in business casual attire shows that they are ready for the next step, that the person knows what he/she is doing.


Great post, Miro! I’m glad you’re noticing the differences between college and high school. I understand what you mean when you say that there are so many things to consider all at once. Professionalism is emphasized a lot more at Baruch than other colleges. I know there are days that I just want to come dressed in a sweatshirt and any old pair of jeans, but that just seems so out of place at Baruch! I hope that now that you’ve noticed these differences from Baruch, it will be easier for you to get accustomed to college life.

Definitely Sam, my entire outlook of being a soon-to-be professional has completely changed since my first days of entering through the fortress-like doors of Baruch. Not only does it look more professional but it also helps me feel more confident of myself and the goals I am expecting to achieve. Thanks for your comments Sam!

With that said, this is one of the best tech gadget I’ve ever owned. The unanimous rave industry reviews (and very positive end user reviewers, even taking wifi issues etc. into account) aren’t wrong.
