Baruch students are usually not your typical teenage movie college student. We don’t have the campus, the house parties, the professors that live within walking distance from us. When I first came to Baruch, it was hard to socialize and to make friends. It really did feel like high school all over again but with a ton of more people. However, I have been a college student for a little over 2 months and the experiences I have gone through are priceless. As a Baruch Scholar, I feel that my role is to use all the benefits given to me and to use them as best as I can. I also represent the college as a whole. When you say Baruch College, people just think that it’s some second or third tier college that can’t compete with the Ivy Leagues. Oh man are they wrong. When people told me college was going to be easy, especially Baruch, they were definitely lying to me. The classes here are hard, the workload is a lot and there are enough hardworking and determined people here just like there are in the Ivy Leagues. Being a scholar, I have to prove to others that Baruch does “have game” and we get everything for free (which is always a plus)! Baruch College offers so many services heres, from the many clubs, to the different Greek organizations, the cheap movie tickets, to just about everything you can possibly think of. I am definitely taking advantage in a lot of them and it’s helped me make so many new friends that I will keep for the rest of my life.
