yeseniapereyra 3 / 8 1 Feb 6, 2013 #1Please provide a statement (appr. 250-500 words) that addresses your reasons for transferring and the objectives you hope to achieve.After a few semesters in community college I had high school friends whom were transferring already; my disposition was that we had just become familiar with the school and they are already leaving. However, after building experiences and drafting the right blueprint for my educational plans I am prepared and anxious to be part of an engineering program in an university. As I come close to finish the basic ground for the degree, I am eager to study and explore ideas that pertain to my passion for the environment. I anticipate joining the engineering department where I can learn and seek guidance from experts in the field and work along-side of peers whom share similar interests. Another prospect I look forward to is to partake in Engineers Without Boarders where I will fulfill my goal to study abroad and validate a strong engineering foundation.During college I was able to grasped experiences from being a staff writer for the newspaper on campus to creating a sports club, among others, that empowered me to become more cosmopolitan and exerted my performance in academics and in my life. Through my involvement I also became acquainted with various professors and tapped in to multiple resources that helped me navigate through college and helped me succeed in my classes. However, more than ever I endeavor to be involved with hands-on work that will specifically educate me and challenge me in the areas of sustainability, hydrology and clean energy. I look forward to partner up with inquisitive peers and experts to undertake research and projects that can lead to new discoveries and understanding; when I transfer it is a top priority to participate in research. I also seek resources that can prompt my professional career; integrate to the strong alumni network and take advantage of the internship and work opportunities that are disposed for students.In a community college the social experience, community and student network are difficult to capture since students commute, go to class and then hastily leave to attend personal responsibilities. I am always in search for an atmosphere that fully devotes itself to academics and where campus life is an integral part of the college experience. When I transfer it is my goal to dorm on campus and to integrate to an environment where students are dedicated to contribute to their community and are animated to collaborate outside of academics. I am excited to be part of an environment where I will have the opportunity to enrich my academics and also stimulate my personal life by making long lasting friends, participate in activities such as intramural sports and experience a new dimension of the educational world.
