So all this week I’ve had the bloggers equivalent to “writers block” (basically not knowing what to write) for the past week or so. I’ve been struggling to figure out what to right about as I normally base it off of my week. Fortunately enough, something came along right before the week ended!
This week I was inducted into the Chi Alpha Epsilon (Otherwise known as XAE) National Honor Society. To me, this was a huge deal for me. In order to be a part of this organization I had to maintain a 3.0 GPA and above for a period of time and be a student under Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) here at NYIT. Reading this you’re probably thinking “Just a 3.0?! That’s easy!”, but to me it was the complete opposite.
Originally I was an Electrical and Computer Engineering major which was not a pleasant experience for me at all. Unfortunately I had to realize how much I despised the major by taking a programming course that was not for me at all. Long story short, being an engineering student really, really, really took a toll on my grades.
Since then, I’ve worked hard enough to bring up my GPA dramatically and it continues to go up and my work is finally showed for by being invited/inducted into this honor society. I also had to give a short speech to the current freshmen students within the program which was pretty cool! Bottom line, this was definitely a memorable experience and I’m glad to see my work finally pay off.
