Reflection on ID 106
The ID 106 class is a perfect class to get first year freshman acquainted and prepared for any tough academic adversity a student may face throughout in college. From learning lessons on how to handle note taking, to getting the most out of the resources this college provides, the ID 106 course is a beginner's guide for successful college life. I truly believe that I will walk away from this class with an advantage above the rest of my peers who were not able to take this inciteful class. After my four years of college, I want to be able to say I had a liberal arts education experience that made me prepared for the real world, and, after this class, I can fully say my end goal has been put into focus.

The process to get a meeting with the person I needed to was kind of confusing, and, to be honest, I feel like I gained nothing of value from my personality meeting. My reasoning is such that I feel like I was not told anything that I did not already know. With that being said, I am sure other students benefited more from the ACE certificate assignment, I just did not find it as helpful. One thing I think this class should consider adding to the curriculum is a lesson over e-mail, Microsoft Office, and Blackboard. Coming into college, in the first week or two, it was a harder transition to those programs than it should have been, and I feel like an early lesson over the basics could sort any confusion freshmen could have. Overall, I feel like just about every lesson and assignment were beneficial, and without this simple class, I would not know about half the things I can do on campus. I am grateful for the opportunity to be able to take such an inciteful class, and I cannot wait to use some of the things I learned inside some of my harder

    I did succeed in making my grades but by the last months of the semester I realize that the stress that came with procrastination wasn’t worth in ad I started working on time management. In high school the words time management are repeated but never really explains. I grew up hating the simple idea of time management, but I have since learned that is means balance. It is easy to think of staying in and doing nothing but studies, but true time management is the balancing the responsibilities you must complete and the things you want to do. This realization has taught me that I can have a “fun” college experience without forgetting the reason I am at a university.…

    To earn an associates degree from Guilford Technical Community College (GTCC) one must take and pass certain classes in order to transfer to a four year institute. One of these many classes is ACA 122-College Transfer Success. It is a one credit course designed to help students who are new to the world of community college and transferring to succeed in the future. For me personally I was not so lucky. This is my last semester at GTCC so this class has been a bit of an annoyance rather than helpful, because a large section of the class is geared towards planning out one’s course schedule for their remanning semesters at GTCC.…

    It would be a sin to add a pronoun in the essay because it would result in a lower grade. Based on that, I have come into college with a positive aspect that my previous writing skills were very well developed, and the Critical Thinking that was done for every essay prompted me to write very well. I feel that high school has taught me very well and I have grown from my very first essay to now. Throughout the last few years in school, I hope to achieve many different goals. I hope to do better in academics than I did in high school and not slip by just to pass.…
