You do not learn only about the major that one studies but achieve knowladge from different subjects as well, expands our way of thinking making us more creative. Success is a small word with a big meaning attached to it, in order for one to succeed he or she must work hard and strive towards a particular goal and accomplish what he or she wanted to achieve. Only through well preperation and hardship could life smile back at us.
Honestly, I don't brag about my school. I am transferring to Kansas State University in the fall. When it came time to research and choose a college in high school I avoided it. I was not ready to be done so I tried to put off the inevitiable. Because of that decision, I was absolutely miserable my first year and a half of college. Be active in your college search, don't just put it off and then take the easy route like I did. It is a decision that will affect the rest of your life.
I like to talk about how Kirkwood's class sizes are so small. The average class is around eighteen students, which allows for more one-on-one time with the professors. I think that this is more valuable for students compared to a university setting where there can be three hundred students in a class. With so many students, there is little to no interaction between the professor and student.
The instructors are wonderful. They seem to really love what they teach & teach it in such a way to make it easier to learn.
There are so many majors you can do, and I love the variety of classes when it comes to history, lit, or hummanity classes.
