The first time I attended UCF, I was straight out of high school. I found housing off campus. My roommates were upperclassmen, and big partiers. I thought I wanted to be an engineer, but soon realized, I wanted to party and live the "college life" instead. This caused me to get academically suspended from UCF. 12 years later, here I am, back in school, persuing my true calling (physical therapy). My early college years taught me alot and showed me what I shouldn't do to get my degree. Although, my early college years set me back on my goal, it gave me time to really figure out what I am meant to do. I wouldn't have done it any other way, (I just wish I hadn't waited 11 years after my suspension to go back.) Such is life. I've been attending a Community college for 2 years now, and about to re-enroll in UCF. I brought my GPA from a 1.66 to a 2.54. I have my previouse college experiences to thank for that.

What I feel is unique about Mary Baldwin College is that class sizes are no bigger than 20 students. The teachers live near campus and are always available. There are numerous tutor sessions around campus that are available most nights of the week.
While attending Mary Baldwin College, I have grown into a confident and compassionate change-making leader. I have been involved in student leader positions, played varsity softball, and been a part of the only all female corps of cadets in the world. I have been able to come from a low middle class home and take the values that were instilled in me and use them in my life away from home. I stive for excellence in all I do and never take failure for an answer.
I feel the worst things about Mary Baldwin College are the dining services. There are set hours in which you have to go to eat, or you do not get a meal. Also, you are allowed three meals a day and you can not take coffee or even a piece of fruit out of the dining hall. Most of the meals they serve are exotic. They do not know what a simple meal consisit of . Who in college eats pigs feet for lunch? EW.

Attending Mary Baldwin has made me a stronger more independent person. I was afraid to be on my own but the community here has made me feel more secure. I like not having a mass amount of boys around because I feel that it gives me more time to grow as an individual and not worry about relationships. The classes here are amazing and I have learned quite a bit in just one semester. The friendships I have made here are great. I feel like an all around better person after coming here. I never had much school spirit in high school but I truly do love Mary Baldwin and can not wait to spend the next three years of my life here.
One of the best things about Mary Baldwin is the social atmosphere. It is a small school so your professors have more time to focus on your school. The small campus also makes it easy to get from one class to another despite having them in different buildings. We are also an environmentally friendly campus relying on local produce and our own community gardens. Just to be clear, for the girls who think ill of an all girls college, there are male students here, just not a lot.
The hills are by far the worst thing at Mary Baldwin. You will not get used to them untill the end of your first year. They make going from lower to upper campus dreadful. Some people dislike the small town feel, but personally I think it gives a more relaxed atmosphere for study. There are less distractions at Mary Baldwin. Despite this we manage to have a ton of fun in our spare time.

College has been extremely beneficial to attend. First of all, I have learned to be very independent. You are the person who will determine if you are successful or not. I have also learned to expand my critical thinking and look at the world in a more sophisticated way. To learn more about what is going on around you, will make you more like to succeed in the future. Attending college has also given me more of an opportunity to experience and get an understanding of what careers I may want to look into. I was able to enter an internship with the local fire department through my school. There I have been able to gain valuable experience in a field that I am interested in. Attending college has forced me to grow into an adult and that I am fortunate.

I have always believed in the strength of femininity and equality among the genders, and this belief has been enhanced by my experience at Mary Baldwin. Also, as an English major, I have had an incredible variety of professors from all over the world. They are brilliant in their knowledge of the subject and caring toward the well-being of their students, and in regards to these professors, I have gained more of an appreciation for the English language. On the whole, I have become a self-assured woman, confident in my English abilities and strong in my individuality.
The kind of person that would do well at Mary Baldwin is the artistic, creative type. She should be proud of her femininity and strong in her beliefs, as Mary Baldwin will help to enhance such pride and strength. A woman who wants to be empowered mentally, intellectually and creatively should attend this college.
The most frustrating thing is probably the use of blackboard for certain classes. The program never works correctly and is especially slow. Other than that, I really have no complaints about MBC.

I've been playing piano for almost fourteen years; however, I never thought music would be a career choice. I received my AA for art in the spring of 2009 and didn't plan on going back to school; I wanted to focus on becoming an actress. But it always seemed like I was being led toward the music. I work as an accompanist at my alma mater and I've been a member of the choirs at College of the Canyons for almost two years. Being a member of the Chamber choir has truly inspired me like I never thought I would ever be as a musician. Being around so many talented people who know that's what they want to do forever, made me realize that I want to make music too. I have learned so much, not just about music, but as Me, the musician. I never considered myself a true musician until I became a part of the Chamber choir. So, for the actress who wasn't planning on going back to school, I do have to say, that I have never been so excited to start the rest of my life as a musician. [

MBC is really friendly, and very good if you're looking for a psychology/English degree, but to be a science or math major, you're going to have a lot of research opportunities, but not the best classes; there is an early college program here, but, to be honest, it's awful and the staff at the program seem more interested in money than the well-being of their wards.
The early college program is, frankly, the only reason a straight person would even consider coming here, and it doesn't deserve to be nearly as prestigious as it attempts to brand itself; however, MBC offers a LOT of financial aid, I suppose that's another reason. And, because it's a small school, undergraduate research is very easy to snag.
As student in an early college program, I can truly say that my situation is unique: my parents moved out of the country before my freshman year and left me to pursue my life. College has allowed me to find academic challenges that weren't available in high school. I've made lifelong friends and learned lifelong skills. When you start college at 15, there's a lot to adjust to in addition to suddenly being away from your family. People ask you to make your own decisions before you're even an adult. Traditional students discriminate against you because of age. In many such situations, I think I would feel like I'm missing out on the real "college experience", but I don't. I am a stronger, better, more mature person because I have had to become so, to be able to consider myself a college student. College has made me more motivated and more independent. I wouldn't trade my experience for any other.

I have gotten a wonderful life experience that I truly love. I want to be able to change schools but I skipped high school to attend college at Mary Baldwin. I love this oppertunity their program for exceptionally gifted young girls have given to me. I try my best and I love all I do at the school. Aside from the stairs I also wish there were more guys around to hang out with. A bunch of girls can get pretty anoying. But I still love it.
People who want to skip high school. Military geared students and anyone who wants to go to an all girls school in the middle of nowhere.
A quiet, small, engaged school.

I would say, get involved in on and off campus activities. Talk to people and get out of your comfort zone. College is about making new freinds and making a network of people. Try everything, but most of all be responsible. You are an adult and you are accountable for your actions. Know your limits, and above all take care of yourself. Know when you need to study and when you need a break. Have faith that you will get through those hard days, and enjoy the days that make you smile. Always find time for your self. Ask the obivious questions, and always read your text books. Get enough sleep, eat well, and excercise. Finally I would say, don't be afraid to be who you are, people should like you for YOU and not someone they want you to be.

If I could go back in time and talk to Sharon as a high school senior I would tell her that it is extremely important to stay focused and determined. College is an experience that not many individuals have the opportunity to take advantage of. Regardless of circumstances and every day life situations, which are very likely to arise, if you stay motivated you will be able to attain your goals. The longer you wait to pursue your higher education, the less likely it is that you will go. Don't let anyone bring you down or speak negativity on your life. If you fall off in school, have enough fortitude to get back up again and keep moving. Tradgeties and unexpected set backs may occur, however if you know where you are trying to go, you can always remember that it doesn't have to hold you down. Definitely don't take too many breaks from school because this will only push you back and could cause you to lose your motivation. Going to college guarantees that you will gain more knowledge that no one can take away from you. Seize the opportunity!
