I can make the National University proud of me after finishing my degree by letting them know that their vision and mission for students like me were effective. Their mission for students is to mold them into ethical, spiritual, and responsible citizens. Letting the NU community know as a graduate, I am already an ethical, spiritual, and responsible citizen. Another thing that I can make the National University proud of me after finishing my degree in college is by letting them know that I implemented their virtues, attitude, and behavior in daily life.
Showing that I am an ethical citizen demonstrates respect, empathy, and compassion to everybody. A citizen that builds relationships based on fairness, humility, and open-mindedness. And an ethical citizen that accepts responsibilities and duties and acts accordingly. Showing that I am a spiritual citizen embrace feeling even the uncomfortable ones. Understanding the feelings of humans are healthy and necessary: and that is the part of me being spiritual. Being a spiritual citizen has to do with having a sense of purpose and peace. Showing that I am a responsible citizen who knows the knowledge about my role in the community, state, and the world. And I am a responsible citizen that has a role in making the world a better place to live and a change agent that acts out against injustice in social, economic, and environmental sectors.
I can see myself being a part of the NU community as a graduate by knowing that I have the knowledge of the virtues, attitude, and behavior of the National University. A student of National University should have an attitude of integrity, compassion, innovation, industry, respect, resilience, and patriotism. Being honest, being fair, and doing the right to anybody at all times is my way to show integrity. Showing how much I value people, how I treat each other with care, and how I understand regardless of any situation is my way to show compassion. The way I show innovation is by having critical thinking, always thinking creatively, and having the right decision making. Simply working hard and knowing how to manage my time, effort and resources is my knowledge about being Industry. Having respect is a big thing for being a student at National University because this how we treat something or someone. Simply listening to what other person has to say is a basic way of respecting. Being resilient is proof of the strength of my character that can’t easily be discouraged by trials and tribulations.
