Personal Narrative: My SIUE Experience

Decent Essays
Transferring to SIUE was not particularly my first choice after graduating in Robert Morris University (RMU). I was applying to transfer to different Universities such as SIU, SLU, WUSTL and UIS and other nearby university that is not to far away from home. I was accepted to five universities and I went to visit all of them where I admired each campuses. I was getting pressured from my mother to where will my next destination be, and I did not know what to tell her at that time. I came across to my aunt who has a son that attended SIUE, they brought me to the campus and gave me a little tour of what is what. As soon as I went home, I grabbed my laptop and started to learn more about SIUE, I called the admission office to schedule an appointment …show more content…
I started caring more when I was told that I might not be able to graduate and a chance to get kicked out of School of Business. I then began to study and have more time focusing on my other classes other than my computer class. I learned about economics, accounting, finance, production and managements. Those classes are my least favorite since they require more calculations. My SIUE experience has taught me a lot of things such as taking one step at a time, focusing only on one thing before jumping into another, taking it easy, and just enjoy all the things that I’m being taught and be thankful for every single moment of it because there are others out there that will trade my place anytime. But don’t get me wrong about enjoying all of it because there are also times where I just cry out my frustration because of all the homework and exams being due at the same date, but majority were a fun learning …show more content…

    When I first began this class I thought that this would be just another introductory class that is required to orient you to the expectations of the particular college. Now, after completing this class, I know that this is not the case. Personal Dimensions of Learning has been a great help, not only to my school work, but also in my daily life. Before taking this class, I thought that learning, and completing daily tasks, were mostly memorizing the order of the way things are supposed to be done and just completing the task. I never liked this strategy, but it always seemed to be the most convenient way to get things done at school, home, and work.…

    In my high school experience, I have learned many techniques that will help me later on in life. I have learned writing and reading techniques that I will always need. Without school, I would not be able to read, do simple math, and write. Although school can be boring, everyone should enjoy their learning experience.

    I enjoyed meeting new friends in this class and getting to work with people I didn’t know. I liked that you allowed us to pick our own groups and I also liked how you basically let us determine what kind of grade we wanted. For example, if I tried in this class I get an A and if I didn’t try I would probably fail. Something I more so liked about you as a teacher is that you didn’t really check the answers for all the chapter work. I never really wrote the right answers or when I had trouble I would just skip it or write a completely random word.…

    All the classes were are almost always fun and not boring to where I would just want to sleep through. I'm pretty sure i speak for all of us when i say we learned a lot more than we do in other classes. Like i said earlier though we learned more than just science. We learned the values like getting work done on time, teamwork is key, and to be what Mr.Pj calls the students profile or what a student should be. When I mean getting work done on time, I mean Mr.Pj would always push you to finish your work not for his sake to grade it, but for you to understand what…

    I’ve been thoroughly enthralled by psych since before I took a psych class. However, there were certain things we covered that just seemed to stick in my noggin like glue and made the class periods fly by! For starters, I adored when we learned about relationships. Though I try not to analyze things too much, I do really enjoy having an understanding about how people respond to things and why some people stay together and some don’t. So since I have only ever had one boyfriend and we are still together, I thought a little friendly analysis wouldn’t hurt.…

    The strategies I used specifically for this course became more and more intentional as the weeks went on. With reading material, I made sure it was always quiet and my phone was turned on silent and flipped over so my mind could push through for the hour and really focus on what the conclusion of the material was. There were a couple of times I had been lazy and the Chapter Quizzes were getting harder to do because I was skimming and rushing through the information I needed to retain. With the Discussions, I have always enjoyed those because they were organized and arranged in a way my brain could function and finish the assignment with a better grasp of that Week that I was Learning about. I definitely finished the Discussions first before any other homework I had.…
