Collegiate Objective

      On a personal level, I am entering college to take the next step in becoming the person I hope to be in the future.  I am going into college in order to better prepare myself for anything the future may throw my way.  As the first person in my family to attend college, there is a certain amount of pressure on me to do well. This pressure, however is not something I plan on allowing to deter me from my success, I plan on instead using it to push me to be better, and succeed that much more.

      I know what it means to my family that I am going to school; the importance of an education has always been something that my parents have instilled in me since I can remember.  My attending college and beyond will be another opportunity to make my family, and myself, proud.

      On a professional level, the education I will receive from Western Michigan University will give me the foundation I need to find a successful and profitable career. With hard work, a high GPA, and excellent focus, I believe I will do well in college. Though I plan on furthering my education after my graduation from WMU, the knowledge I attain here will be an amazing start.

     Another professional motivation is the job placement rate that Western Michigan University business students have is certainly something to look forward to.  Having a stable job after college would be absolutely fantastic.
