Personal Goals as a University Of Phoenix Student - Articles Surfing

Personal goals I want to achieve as a University of Phoenix student.

There are many goals I want to achieve as a student of the University of Phoenix. Some of them will be easier to achieve then others, but I will be doing my best to accomplish them all. One of the obvious goals is to achieve the highest grades as possible. Throughout High School this was not a goal for me and I chose not to apply myself and was happy to settle for just any grade. In doing so I missed out on a lot of material I could have been studying and learning about. Settling for any grade also posed a problem when I graduated High School. When I graduated High School and began looking into going to college I found I was limited in the colleges I could apply to. I found I was limited due to the below average grades I received. When I started my Associate Degree my outlook on education completely changed and I was not willing to settle for any grade. I also did everything I could to learn and take away as much information I could from each and everything course. As!

I am starting my Bachelors Degree at the University of Phoenix I still have the mindset of obtaining the highest grades as possible. I feel even stronger about obtaining and maintaining high grades. To achieve this I will stay committed to reading all of the material provided and will complete all assignments to the best of my ability.

Another goal I have is to stay organized in school so I will have free time for friends and family. I have been doing this by listing out everything, which is required for me to do during the school week. I list out the assignments and readings as well as deadline for the material to be completed. I have been able to stay organized this way by doing a little work each day. I find pacing myself has been a big help instead of attempting to do everything all as one and waiting until the last minute. I recently began using my lunch break at work to complete some schoolwork as well. This has been extremely useful as it allows me to spend more time with family and friends since a good portion of my daily schoolwork can be completed. It is very helpful having a good portion of my schoolwork done before I even leave from work.

An additional objective of mine is to be able to assist others during the time I am obtaining my degree, as well as after my degree is obtained. I really enjoy meeting others and assisting people any way I can with issues and problems they may have. Assisting people with their problems is a big part of what I do as a police officer and that is one of the biggest motivators that keeps me in the profession. With the education and experience I am receiving at the University of Phoenix I am able to take the skills and experiences and apply them on a daily basis to assist coworkers as well as members of the public whom I deal with throughout the day. I realize some people are not as fortunate to be able to continue their education and feel those fortunate enough to have been able to continue their education have an obligation to assist others. During my schooling I hope to assist my peers with any problems or questions, which may come up. I have some skills in t!

he area of computers, which may be helpful to those who have no had the opportunity to get behind a computer much.

My final goal is to learn as much from my peers as possible. During my Criminal Justice degree program at the University of Phoenix I will have the opportunity to meet and speak with many different people who are doing the exact same thing I am doing as a police officer. Some people will have less experience and others will have more, but most important everyone learned things from their own experiences. A goal of mine is to learn from each and every one of my peers and to take something from each person. Each person will bring to the table different strengths, which will assist me in my field now and for years to come. I hope in meeting new people it will give me the opportunity to build up many more contacts and recourses in the field. These are a few of the many goals I plan on achieving as a student at the University of Phoenix. With determination and discipline I believe I will be successful in achieving these goals.
