Student Development - College Now

By: Christine Rivera

Truth be known, at first I did not even consider doing the Student Development class. I have heard that many of my peers were joining the program, but it never interested me. It did not interest me, because I did not really understand what the program was. I began hearing from other students that I might not even survive college, without taking the Student Development course. I started looking into it; I started to ask around, trying to figure out what the class was about. Soon, I learned that the class is very important and beneficial for me. The class I heard would help me prepare for the whole college process. I decided, then, that I needed to take the Student Development class because of how beneficial it was said to be for me in college.

I hope this class will teach me a lot of new things that will help me get through all the years at college. While in this class I hope to learn to manage my time in college. I also hope this class will help me ensure the college major and future occupation that is right for me. Already, I have learned a lot from only two sessions of the class. I have learned college vocabulary that will be very useful to me, such as G.P.A., internships and transfer credits. I have recently learned what it takes to get through college. I need to have money for books, food and classes. I also need a good G.P.A. I need to be independent and responsible.

So far, I am very happy with my decision of joining the Student Development class. I feel that it will greatly help me survive through the tough years of college. So far, I have learned a lot and I am sure that I will learn a lot more in my other sessions. I think that taking the Student Development class was the right choice for me, and I am very appreciative of all I have learned and will learn.
