Transcript: Sturdy Just like a tree I have learned how important to be sturdy and strong. I have faced many hardship in my life from leaving my home of New York City to the late death of my mother, now in college I have to stand strong. This one semester is showing me how focused I mist be from here on out. Lots of Hidden Potential Just how a tree is not just a producer of oxygen, but also a home for squirrels; I am not just a student, but a leader. Coming from a YMCA background I took part in my Y's Leaders Club (or Y-Scholars/Teens In Action as we liked to call it). These very skills that I learned in this program has helped me in fitting in with the strong sense of leadership on Springfield College's campus. Needs Nourishment Every seed could use some help growing same with me as a student. To the Academic Advising Center to the Counseling Center I plan to make full use of the services that Springfield offers. Along with the offices to help me academically there is also my peers. This semester has shown me that everyone needs help from time to time and it is nothing to be ashamed of. Forced To Face Hard Weather A strong tree needs to be able to withstand harshness of Mother Nature the same way I need to be able to withstand the multiple stresses of college. Regardless if it is the frigged cold of the first day of classes or the scorching heat of finals I have seen from this semester that I will have to roll with the punches. I am sure that I can become a tree that can beat any tornadoes or Hurricane Sandy's that is thrown at me. Deep Rooted To SC In the past three months that I have spent in Springfield College I can honestly say.... I love it here and I have no intentions of going anywhere. Just like a tree I have planted my roots down here. This is where I have decided to stay and through hell and high water I am going to do everything in my power to ensure I stay here.

Transcript: Oak Tree. I took an acorn and put it in a pot. I then covered it with earth, not a lot. Great pleasure was mine watching it grow. The first budding green came ever so slow. I watered my plant twice a week I knew I would transplant it down by the creek. One day it will be a giant oak, To shield me from the sun a sheltering cloak. Lovers will carve their initials in the bark, An arrow through a heart they will leave their mark. It will shelter those caught in a fine summers rain, Under its leafy bows joy will be again. Creatures of the wilds will claim it for their own, Squirrels will reside here in their own home. Birds will build nests and raise their young, They will sing melodies a chorus well sung. Under it’s branches grass will grow, Here and there a wild flower it’s head will show. My oak tree for hundreds of years will live. Perhaps the most important thing I had to give.
