Lexi Saari - Why I chose LCO
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
The reason I was inspired to go to college was because my family knew that I was struggling with deciding on what I wanted to do with my life. So they kind of together the steps for me to be able to go to college and guided me and pushed me and supported me into applying and attending, which I am now, and I am happy about that. The reason I chose L. C. O is because, um, it's more. It's not like a big, giant, cold, sterile college, and there's a lot of support. It's also like based on the Native American people and helping people in the name American community, which I think is more what I'm looking for, especially because I can go into, like, fields based on that or learning more about my culture. So that's why I would choose L. C. Over a different college, the type of students that would thrive at my school, or people who apply themselves, who are dedicated and come every single day, do all their assignments, ask questions, get help, anything that they can do to be successful. If I could tell my pre college self something now, it would be that college is not as hard and unattainable as I thought it would be and that it's actually pretty fun. It's exciting knowing that what I do now can put me into a career, just make my life more fun and easier. I think that the college represents community to me because you can go down the hall, you can call up a friend. I feel like everybody knows everybody, but not necessarily. It's just like you could go down the hall and they're going to treat you like they care about you and that you're important. You don't have to necessarily know them or be related, but that sense of like trust and my favorite thing about L. C O College, which is that it's affordable, anybody can go. They do not turn anybody away based on race or gender.
