University of Puerto Rico-Ponce Top Questions

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?


If I could go back and give myself advice, I would tell myself to study hard and take school seriously. I would tell myself to stop being childish and work hard to achieve a higher education and to not blow it off like a spoiled brat. I would tell myself that education is a precious privelage and to learn to cherish it.


I know that attending a college is not easy, it is a big step in your life and you may exploit this opportunity. The kind of student that you show in the university is going to open you a lot of chances as a porfessional. You are going to have experiences that you would like to forget, but don't worry, these kind of experiences are going to make you a better student. I really advice you to be part of everything you like (extracurricular activities), apply for interships and be awared about you are living. Is not just study, but is not just friend either. You have to make a balance and make this journey the best experience of your life. It is your preparation for your future, so do everything you need to reach your goals. Don't worry about what could happen, be happy since you cross the door and show what you really are as a person and as a student.


Perseverance. Enjoy, learn and look to the future.


If I could turn back, I would say that regardless of all obstacles that occur never surrender. Follow your dreams, study to learn and to be the professional you dreamed as a child. Do not study to make someone feel better go to college to grow as a person, to help society, to make you feel good as a human being. Study what ever you want, study what you feel safe and comfortable. It does not matter if you do not find how to continue your studies because you have nothing to afford them in the end we are always rewarded for the good we do.


To choose a career that you like, not for the money or that your paretns want, becasue in the future this will bring problems in your college and even at your life as a professional. Be sure and focused in the career that you choose and don't let other people of things broke your goals.

This sheer determination and drive of mine has lead me to always have a very rich and rewarding experiece. Not only has college taught me to set speacific goals for myself but it has also taught me that with hard work I can achieve them.

I'm finally moving forward.


My college is unlike other colleges. It is small but we are a family there. It is a school full of women ages ranging from eighteen to fifty. Everyone at my college is just trying to make it in this tough economy. We all try our hardest just to make other people happy. We are training to become licensed cosmetologists. This school has been very valuable with the flexible hours and all the hands on experiences. Our instructors go out of their way to make sure we are getting the best education we can. This is why I am asking for this scholarship money. I wanna make a difference in the world and to people just as I have benefitted by others wanting to accomplish this same goal. Thank you.
