EDU 470 Reflection 2.04.2011
As a junior in college I think back to my freshman year and all the stereotypes I had bottled up in my head. When I first came to orientation I had a blast and I assumed that college was just parties, having fun and pretty much everything you see in the movies. I thought all long island people were annoying with their weird little accents and I thought all fit and athletic looking people were physical education majors. I quickly learned that college is not all parties and everything the movie industry makes it out to be! I learned that some people from long island don't have accents and they can actually be pretty nice. I also learned not all fit and athletic looking people are phys. ed majors some are communications or athletic training. I feel if I wasn't open to learning about new environments and just everything there is about to know about different people and places I would have never learned what I know now! You can't just live your life with your set rules and assumptions on things, you have to take the rose colored glasses off and see things for how they could be.
