Art Class

Tuesday, September 18th, 2018

It is my senior year and I am finally taking my art general education. So far, I am enjoying the class a lot! I am learning a lot about the theories of color. In addition, I have completed two art projects as well. I love taking art during my senior year because it is a stress relief. I am not a great artist but I still enjoy doing art. I find it peaceful when I zone out and just do art. Time flies by so quick! It was a great idea to wait my senior year to do my art class. If I would of taken it my freshman year then that means I would have to fill in this class with one other class related to my major. I can’t wait to keep learning about the theories of color. I am looking forward to more art projects!

21st Annual Accounting Accounting and Audit Conference

Monday, September 17th, 2018

Tomorrow the accounting student will travel down to the cities for the 21st annual accounting and audit conference. This is a great opportunity to get a full-time offer or an internship offer. Students in the past have been able to receive great offers just by participating in this event. There are over 50 companies who will be at the event. In addition, there is a LinkedIn photo booth and several panels of successful accountants. Last year, I participate in the event and I had a great time! I also received an internship offer because of my participation. I think it is great that our accounting staff are taking the students to this event!

New tech in classrooms!

Sometime last week, I attended the first IT Help Desk meeting where we talked about new updates on campus and ramped up after a summer away from the Help Desk! The Help Desk is a fast paced environment and it requires knowing what’s going on with regards to the network system, tech equipment in classrooms and conference rooms etc.

Late Class

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018

Today for my first class my teacher got hung up doing a bunch of other things that they ended up being about half an hour late for class, and it was a really weird experience. All of us were there just waiting and trying to decide how long we should wait before deciding that class wasn’t happening. I had no problem waiting because I had a class immediately after and it was interesting to watch some others slowly wander around trying to decide whether they wanted to stay or go. It was really great because after some finally decided to leave we realized we should take attendance and the teacher finally showed up.
