    Everything in college is so far so good, I like the life on campus. I have been living on campus since middle school, as a freshman the courses are not too hard to understand, and homework are not much to be completed. So academic study and living independently are no problems. But sill there are things

    The most dificult part for me in the transition from high school to college was the change in activities. At high school, I was always going straight from class to class and then to whatever sport I happened to be playing, or work. I never really had any time off. Another drastic change was the workload.

    I have considered very many majors at Marietta College. When I first applied to Marietta, I put down Information Systems on my application because this was what I thought I wanted to do at the time.

    My major at Marietta College is finance. I believe this is the major for me, my mother is in this field and I I know details on the job. The process of me discovering this major is from details of my moms job, my research online, and my desire to make money. I’ve been to

    Before I came to Marietta College I didn’t know what major I will be studying in. After a family meeting I finally set a temporary milestone for a Finance major.

    I have not decided on a major yet, but I have considered a few different majors and they have all been in business. I’m interested in accounting, finance, or international business. However, I’m leaning towards majoring in accounting and maybe minoring in finance. To make my choice, I will need to first take some business classes

    I decided on a major that dealt with computers when I was in high school. I decided on this when I took a computer class in high school and first started learning about the software and the way that they operate. I thought it was extremely interesting and I really enjoyed it.

    Social media has become a very popular and useful tool for people in today’s society.  People can use social media to impact society by sharing information about news, current events, and entertainment.  While most people I know use social media to spread true information about news or entertainment, many people in the world do not.

    I think social media should promote good behaviors and appropriate content to benefit society issues. However, not all of that happens there are negatives too.
