Brief discussions of cultural periods and movements such as romanticism, modernism, and transcendentalism put individuals in context and lend perspective." From the U.S.
There is a poster in the guidance office of my high school that reads, "What would you do if knew you could not fail? ? The question is easy to ask, but for me the answer is elusive. When I ask my fellow classmates what they are majoring in, they reply in less than a second, and then conclude with, "Hey, it makes good money ¦ so why not? ?
"Why not? ? In a world driven by money, I wonder how many have compromised their values and not pursued their dreams because they have been allured by the almighty dollar. Even though I have not chosen my major, I want to enter college with an open mind. Keystone offers many courses that I'm interested in-- graphic design, forensics, culinary arts, and teaching. If I am accepted to Keystone College, I will use the Pre-Major program to discover and pursue fields that I am most interested in.
I plan to implement all the tools available to me. I will seek out teachers to obtain information about the variety of courses that appeal to me. I anticipate an active exchange with other students that are majoring in the areas that I am interested in. This will help me discover what study is right for me.
During my visits to Keystone, I felt welcomed and comfortable. I feel this atmosphere will be an ideal learning environment to broaden my horizons and find my niche. Through my education from Keystone College, I hope to acquire the knowledge, confidence, and determination to succeed in a career that I am passionate about.
