Hello everyone. My name is Eric Womack. I am a freshman at the University of Delaware with a major in Business Management. I'm originally from Long Island, NY, but I've lived in Orlando, FL for the past 6 years. My blog is titled UD in RealD because I want to show everyone, especially prospective students, what it's like at the University of Delaware from my perspective. Please feel free to ask me any questions.Ask away! Submit
A few days ago Chris asked me what I’ve learned from college so far. I went on to tell him a number of different things and when I was done, he told me that I was growing up. The funny thing is that he was right, I am growing up and I can credit that growth to the University of Delaware and my experiences here. Being in college forces you to mature; I’m just grateful that I’m able to do so at UD. In such a creative, practical, and nurturing environment, that’s also tons of fun. It enables you to grow as a student, a professional, and a person. When I think about all that goes into me attending this great university (i.e. time, effort, money) from this perspective, I realize that it’s more than worth it. What I get from the University of Delaware is priceless. I’ve gained knowledge and skills and I’ve made memories that will all last me a lifetime. Attending the University of Delaware was the best decision I’ve ever made and, for what it’s worth, I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Hello everyone. Now that I’m on spring break, I’m looking forward to having more time to blog and more topics. If you follow my blog, then you know that I have a younger brother, Chris, who’s a senior in high school. Well, like every other senior in the country, Chris has started receiving his acceptance letters to different colleges. So after his first one I asked him how it felt. Not surprisingly, he was at a loss for words. Overcome with so much joy and excitement he couldn’t quite articulate his emotions. I’m sure anyone that has been through this can relate; I know I was awestruck when I received my acceptance letter to UD. Even now I can remember that moment in totality. Pulling into my driveway after school, walking over to the mailbox (as I did everyday), and seeing a bright yellow envelope that said “Congratulations!” At that moment I felt so many different emotions but the most prominent was definitely relief. Relief that all the hard work, all the hope, all the prayers, and all the wishes that went into that process had paid off. There was nothing more I wanted than to get into the University of Delaware. By the time I received that decision, I was head over heels for UD. I had received all my other decisions and had been impatiently waiting for UD, my number one overall. Once that letter came, I knew it was a match made in heaven and it has turned out to be even more.
Although I’ve been mostly unproductive this entire break, I have begun my search for a summer internship. I’m hoping to get one in the areas of marketing, management, or sports management and to have it in Orlando or Newark. A few websites I’ve used are www.simplyhired.com and www.internships.com They have been very helpful. I’m still tweaking my resume and my cover letter before I actually apply for any though. Glad that I’m getting an early start though.
Hey guys. So my first winter break is going very well so far. I have done absolutely nothing productive with my time and that is exactly what I wanted to do, so I have been thoroughly enjoying it. This relaxation time has been beautiful; sleeping in, laying on the couch, playing video games, and watching movies. I needed to unwind after exerting so much effort on a daily basis for 15 weeks. The lack of productivity will probably continue for the rest of this month, being that my birthday is tomorrow and the holidays are fast approaching. However, I’ll be back to work in January when I go work with my mom at her accounting firm or with my brother at Chipotle. Thanks for following and Happy Holidays!!!!!
