Hey, Everyone! It's Connie. Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. If you're dying to know, I've been busy with school, work, etc. I've also been busy making alot of observations; observations about students, observations about myself, and observations about UWM. So, I started thinking, "What do students, myself, and UWM have in common?" The answer: We're all moving forward toward something. Hopefully something bigger and better than ourselves. But, it seems in all the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we occasionally forget why we are here. Why am I here? Well, I have a passion for linguistics and Spanish and I want to pursue that passion. I also hope that someday I can positively influence my community or where-ever I may go through my work in language. I'm not exactly sure where I'll end up, but I know where I'd like to go. Though, I am certain UWM is a great starting point for me.
All that's been said, I'd like to introduce a series of blogs called The College Experience. In these blogs I'd like to challenge you to think about what you want to get out of your college experience. I'll give you some advice and tips on how to handle everyday college life along the way. ;) Perhaps, I can even help you out in someway. In any case, I would appreciate the same, as I am a first year student.
Before we end this little get-together, I'd like to ask you one thing...
Why are you here?
In answering this question we can figure out what we need to get the most out of our college experience.
