Returning to College and Your Unfinished Degree
Returning to College and Your Unfinished Degree

Too often, college students abandon their degrees for any number of reasons: the work is too demanding or unappealing, the student needs to devote more time to working or other personal commitments, the finances to support tuition run dry. Whatever the reason, going back to school after any length of time to complete an unfinished degree is always a good investment that is guaranteed to pay off in the future with dedication and hard work.

Student Jobs to Consider when Choosing a College
Student Jobs to Consider when Choosing a College

The costs of college can seem sky-high, but through the benefit of financial aid and holding a part-time job as a student, attending college does not have to indicate a personal debt crisis. Working during college is not only a great way to keep money in your pocket for unexpected or personal expenses (such as dinners out, socializing with friends, traveling home for visits, and materials for class projects), it also shows potential employers your ability to multitask, handle a good amount of responsibility, and manage your time wisely.

This fact still holds true, but employers look for more than just a college degree from graduates. The college degree has become a requirement for employment rather than an extra bonus for employees. Now, more than ever, you must have qualifications other than a degree from a reputable college or university. Even more than this, your university degree must match the standards of recruiters and hiring managers.

Math Minds and Creative Minds

Starting around high school is when students begin to realize whether they are math minds or creative minds. The creative minds lean more towards writing and theater while the math minds revel in math and science. Whichever category you fall into can make the other subjects difficult. Take this from a creative mind who has dreaded math since sixth grade. For the past seven years math has been a black cloud hanging over my head pointing and laughing the entire time.

Sometimes taking a college course only once is a pain, but imagine having to take it for a second time? This is not uncommon in college and a main reason why students end up having to take summer courses or wind up staying for more than four years. Something that students tend to forget is that one way or another the school is going to get paid for those courses. You will either have to pay now or later, so wouldn’t it just be better for you if you only took and paid for it once? This can be easier said than done, but trust me taking it again just is not worth it.

Entering the world of college is a new experience for those who have just graduated high school. The expectations are higher and there is a whole new pair for shoes for you to fill. It can be scary going from high school to college with simply an orientation to prepare you. There is more to know than any orientation can inform you of, but doing your research beforehand can help you become more knowledgeable before the big day arrives.

Your Future Starts Now
Your Future Starts Now

It takes a lot of time and energy to constantly think and worry about your future. Your best bet is to stop putting it off and take action now. Even if you start preparing for your future like saving money or applying to college makes a difference. The hardest part is getting started but after that it is usually pretty smooth sailing. You just have to know where to begin and it all does not need to be done right away. Doing a little bit everyday will help; you just have to find it within you to start.

Make Yourself Irreplaceable
Make Yourself Irreplaceable

With all of the courses available in college, schools should begin to stress the importance of being a valued employee. This seems like common sense, but many students are clueless as to how to go about doing this once they get into the real world. Showing a company that you are irreplaceable is a hard task and although no one is really irreplaceable you can at least make it hard for the company to do so.

Where Do You Want To Be?
Where Do You Want To Be?

Knowing what you want out of a life is a big decision to make. Everyone realizes what they want in life at different times, but many have whiffs of where they would like to be during college. The issue here is that people change and so do hopes and dream. There is nothing you can do about your changing feels, but when you have a strong feeling about something you should jump on it. If you are one of those people whose dreams change every month, you might want to reevaluate where you are in your life now and where you see yourself in the future.

Start College with a Plan
Start College with a Plan

A mistake many students seem to make is attending school with the intention of just graduating. When you first enter college, graduating should be part of the natural process, so why make that your main plan? Students should develop plans that are much more in-depth than graduating. These plans do not have to be made alone. Advisors can be of great assistance if given the chance.

Patience is a Virtue after College
Patience is a Virtue after College

It is not a secret that college students have no patience. They are continuously rushing and becoming agitated with those making them late for the next class, next appointment, or next available time to boil some noodles and study. Once college is over, students have to gain a better perspective on life and realize even though it was their time while in college, it is no longer as self-involved. Once graduated, students need to bow to the demands of a career and their new superiors. Adjusting to this can cause personal turbulence but the sooner it is learned the sooner they will be acclimated with their new demeanor in life.

Should You Walk for Graduation?
Should You Walk for Graduation?

You have probably not given much thought to whether you want to walk or have your diploma mailed to you. Your main thought up until this point was likely, “I cannot wait to graduate college…period”. There are some pros and cons to both experiences, but students need to do what is best for them and maybe consider family members when making the decision. It can be hard thinking ahead of your next exam, but give your graduation plans some thought before the day finally arrives.

Let Your School Work for You
Let Your School Work for You

You do a lot of work for school, so why shouldn’t you make your school work for you? With the amount of money paid in tuition, it hardly seems worth to just go to class and go home. You should try to find ways to utilize your school’s tools and allow the programs to help you. It will require you to put in extra time on-campus, but the benefits will certainly outweigh the negatives.

Build Your Job-Hunting Skills
Build Your Job-Hunting Skills

Gaining job-hunting skills is just as important as building your résumé. You have to know where to look, when to look, and how to look. These are all vital steps to learning how to properly look for a job. Some people are happy scanning through the career section of the newspaper to see what is available, but that is actually not an effective way to actively look for a job.

Second Languages Take Backseat
Second Languages Take Backseat

From the time we were in elementary school we have always been taught the value of learning a second language for our futures. But now that we are pretty much there, have you seen much need for this second language? As a recent college student I have found that many college-aged adults have taken the time to learn languages such as Spanish and Italian. The issue that has come about is that they have no need to use it. This is not true for all who learn a second language, but a decent number are experiencing this.

3 Questions Every Student Should Ask
3 Questions Every Student Should Ask

New students and current students have a lot on their plates. There is a lot of information to be known and much of it is not presented to you unless you specifically ask the right people. You should always feel free to contact your professors with any questions you might having regarding classes or the school. If they do not provide you with the information you are looking for, you should move on to the administration. They are the ones who should know the ins and outs of the school and provide you with the answers you are looking for.

4 Perks to an iPad
4 Perks to an iPad

The iPad is becoming very popular with students as well as the business world. It does not do exactly what a computer can do, but it certainly passes the time and allows you to do what you need to do. Many companies are coming out with different or cheaper versions that are very similar. With the iPad you might have to pay an extra monthly fee for 3G service, but if you just have wi-fi there is no monthly fee. This option is up to you depending on where you will need to use it.

3 Ways to Make Extra Money in College

It is always nice to have a few extra bucks, especially when you are in college. There are many ways students can earn extra money aside from the job they already have.

BlackBerry vs. Droid
BlackBerry vs. Droid

Students are coming to rely on their smartphones on a daily basis in order to communicate with friends, reach professors, and be in on the latest news for whichever field they may be in. Some students care about the device that aids in this process while others just want one that works and is reliable. The BlackBerry and the Droid are both very popular phones and serve the same main purposes. The Droid can do a little more and has more computer-like qualities, but the BlackBerry is an old favorite.

4 Ways to Get a Better Sleep
4 Ways to Get a Better Sleep

Whether you are in high school, college, or in your career, sleep is essential to functioning at your very best every day. It is becoming very common for us to rely on little sleep and a boost of caffeine to truck through our days, but our bodies need sleep to operate properly. Energy boosts are great if you just have a long day or are behind on work, but using them as a supplement for lost hours of sleep should be avoided. We all like to get a good night’s sleep but with a lot on our minds it can be hard to get into that “sleep-mode”.

4 Homework Tips

After going to class and listening to a professor lecture you anywhere from 90 to 180 minutes the last thing you want to do is leave class only to continue on with the lesson by doing homework. This method works for some students as they like to get their homework done and out of the way. Others like to take a break for a few hours or a few days, and some even like to pretend that the homework doesn’t apply to them and they forget about it altogether.
