Ryan Amann 12/1/11 Final Check In I’ve had a great and enlightening time so far at the University of Maryland. I have in no way been overwhelmed by work and I take pride in that. I’ve done a great job of prioritizing and ensuring that I finish my work before I hang out with friends. That being said, I’m not happy with two of my grades and realize that I need to work harder in classes I struggle in and earn the grades I would like to receive. I have realized that nothing is handed to you in college and that you determine your own destiny. If you want to be successful you need to be able to balance everything in life. I certainly knew this before college, but it’s been more apparent since I’ve been here. My experience in college has been a lush and cushy one, thus far. The View 2 (the apartment building I’m living in) is incredible and has several high-quality restaurants on the first floor of it. My roommates and I all get along and I’ve been able to go to the gym

Unformatted text preview: everyday with my best friend here, Eddie Martin. So far I can say I’ve been blessed but I’ve also been responsible and have represented myself as well as I possibly could have. I am proud of all the work I have done so far at UMD and do not regret much. One thing I definitely regret, though, is the fact that I have C’s in two classes. I have only ever gotten one C before in my life and am working hard to ensure that I don’t get any this semester. It’s going to be tough but I am convinced that I can do it. This is the small bit of adversity I’ve had to go through, and quite frankly, I don’t mind about my grades quite as much as my parents do. I recognize their importance but also realize that a degree from UMD will get me to great places in life, and that grades are not the most important lesson you can learn in college....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
