From Freshman to Graduate: How my University Experience Shaped me as a Person “These are going to be the best four years of your life”. A sentence a person often hears as they enter a university. However, the first thoughts that come to mind right after are all the parties, the gatherings, the coffee breaks, lunch times, trips, and fun activities. Most of us are quick to forget that the experience with its challenges and opportunities is what makes it the best. The University of Sharjah has provided me with a great journey, as I have undergone numerous times of self-reflection and personal growth. On my first day, I stepped in not knowing what the future held for me. Yet, the university was quick to teach me that staying in my comfort zone will always be the number one barrier between me and my ride to success. Therefore, I made it a point to invest in chances, commit to hard work, and value perseverance. Throughout all my projects, exams, and lectures, I have developed a deeper understanding in the field of business and a newfound respect for all the entrepreneurs. Nonetheless, my university has also taught me how to manage my time, and practice proactive thinking. It taught me the importance of team spirit, the efficiency of prioritizing my responsibilities, and how to utilize all the opportunities that life randomly threw in front of me. I have become stronger and wiser, more confident, and resilient, but most importantly I am grateful with how I have grown and the character I have worked so hard to build. I have met people who have been nothing but supportive and people that challenged my perspective. As I look back to the days I spent on campus and online, I realize how much I have changed, hopefully to a better version of myself. The challenges and achievements I have faced helped me become one step closer to the seven-year-old Razan’s hero. I am proud to have earned my degree in such a prestigious university and excited for what the future holds.

To study at the College of Business Administration was the best choice I could have made! I believe CoBA has carved my personality into a resilient, creative, and hard-working person. Being a student in a high quality, accredited college has not only equipped me with finest quality education but also with the needed set of skills and keys to join the workforce successfully and excel in my career. Our college is not only well equipped with great facilities, but also the faculty members are utterly amazing! Our professors are the best supporters and they put a lot of effort into making sure that we bring the best of us. During my college years I attended many events and forums. I also participated in extracurricular activities that gave me the opportunity to network with many inspiring entrepreneurs and successful businesspeople. Even during the pandemic, the faculty members proved their excellency by efficiently adapting to the situation and providing the best performance. After this wonderful experience, I can confidently say that it was worth applying to the College of Business Administration at the University of Sharjah, because CoBA allowed me to be one step closer to my dreams and the family of CoBA made me feel like I am at my second home!

My journey at University of Sharjah started in 2016 when I was accepted in the College of Business Administration with management major. By the end of the first year I wanted to get out of the academic routine, so I started participating in many competitions, whether they have a direct or indirect relationship with my major. I joined the innovation club as a member in the college, my first role was a tour around the UAE universities to promote for the fourth international forum of innovation and entrepreneurship. During the tours I thought about participating in the competition with “The smart library” idea, my belief in the idea and introducing an innovation that will benefit different segments in the society was the first goal of entering the competition, in addition to raising the name of the college with a special work. I participated in the process of organizing the forum in addition to being a contestant, I did not deal with other contestants as a competitor, because I did not forget my role as an organizer and assistant for everyone. The most beautiful thing in my life was winning the first place in the announcement of results in February 2019, here was the start for excellence. One of the most beautiful things in my college is its full support to me in all university participations, as it gave me the opportunity to participate in external forums through nominating me in cooperation with the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry to attend (the second forum of Arab entrepreneurs) in Egypt. And there I was chosen by Forum members to conduct a dialogue session as a first session manager from youth category and as a speaker in “creative ideas for inspiring youth” session. In 2020 I joined the Institute of Management Accountants club as a member, we organized many major events that were successful, and this was my last participation in the college where I graduated in the same year. The College of Business Administration contains many creative students. In the College of Business Administration, you will find the engineer businessman, the painter businessman, the doctor businessman, the innovative businessman, the player businessman and many others. As I always say to all students "Don't be the normal student" Let excellence be your goal by joining the College of Business Administration.

I had the best four years of my life at the College of Business Administration. During this time, I have met many amazing people and made long lasting friendships by participating in college events and activities. Everybody is extremely friendly and cooperative, including professors and staff members. In addition, getting a degree from an AACSB accredited college opened many doors for me as I was given the opportunity to continue my postgraduate studies at various top universities. Overall, I really enjoyed my experience at CoBA, both academically and socially

I graduated from the University of Sharjah in 2019, with a major in Business Administration. My years in the University is considered to be the most beautiful years of my life. I got too many opportunities as a student to participate in competitions on the University and UAE levels, and I got the chance to win two times in Think Science competition. In my opinion, the University of Sharjah is not like any other university, as the knowledge it gives to the students build and shape them to make them the future leaders

My overall experience in the University was an amazing one. My course was Business Administration and my emphasis was in Marketing. The professors were very informative in their lectures and they always help when you are in need of one. The course was an interesting one and I found it to be very practical and needful especially in these days where almost everything depends on marketing strategies due to so many competing companies. The course teaches also you to become innovative and broadens ones imagination. The professors also made all these possible and their teaching strategies were interesting. For me, my college years were the best and I wish I could turn back time and be a student once again.
