My school is not the typical high school I feel like. Although my favorite experiences go along the lines of the pep rally and football games, within the school I do not have many exciting moments. For starters, we have had 3 different principals in the last 4 years. Also, instead of forcing effort to apply to bigger colleges, they urge us to attend community. Our guidance counselor basically guides us down a path of disaster. He told my class that we shouldn't take the SAT more than once and that if we are good at science we should stick with the ACT, as if either of those correlate to us acheiving a better chance to score high on those tests. They even encountered some mistakes when it came to sending students transcripts out last year! They do not stress enough how important it is to keep up grades for college or how to apply to scholarships.
My first year at this college I lived in the learning commons, utilizing every resource I could, be it a math or biology tutor, a writing coach, the library archives, computer systems, seminars, you name it. This college provides so many resources that I never would have imagined available at a community college. I have gone to career services countless times for advice, guidance, mock interviews, network opportunities or career building information sessions. If I need help, career services is there, they all know my face and name and are always pleasant, kind, and ready to help.

I have already had 5 internships through this school which gives me the upper hand when applying for jobs. This program is well known throughout the country and recognized by countless zoo's that ultimately hired graduates straight out of this program. The ZAS Program has a very good reputation. In having internships during the program, students can find out what this job is really like, and can decide if they want to stick with it, some don't. These experiences have helped me receive job and internship position offers. The zoo world is a small world and these internships have helped me establish relationships with people that can help me in the long run.
