Renting Textbooks

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

If you have not yet ordered your textbooks and are trying to find the cheapest option, I would highly suggest renting them on Amazon. I have been doing this for three years and I was able to rent all of my books this semester for under $100. They allow you to keep the books all semester and then return them when you are done. You can just go to a UPS store (there is one by Erbert’s and Gerbert’s) and send them back with free shipping guaranteed. Sometimes if a book is needed for your major and you think you will use it after college or need to refer to it in a later class, buying can be a better option, but for your generals, I would definitely look into just renting your books to save some money!

On Campus Jobs

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

On campus jobs are a great way to make extra money while in college and CSS offers a lot of different jobs for students that work around your class schedules. I have been working as a web developer on campus for about six months now and not only is it a great college job, but it is giving me great experience doing real world projects, as well. Furthermore, I am able to get credits to go towards my major in addition to earning money. If you are interested in an on campus job, you can go to to see what jobs are currently available.

First Day of Sophomore Year!

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

The day has come, happy first day of the 2018-2019 school year! My first day consists of no classes, as my anatomy and physiology lab was cancelled for the first week of school. So I am taking this day to prepare and get a head start on my other three classes, which include physics, US history, and religions of the world, which is an online class. I have to admit that I am nervous to see how the year goes with having physics and anatomy and physiology, but I am sure with good studying techniques that I will survive… Even though it is a wet, dreary day on campus today, it seems people are excited to be back with friends and learning new things. Here’s to the new year!

Prof. Eugene Bayiha’s Class

Tuesday, August 21st, 2018

I took a pilot course added in the School of Business last semester (spring 2018) with Prof. Eugene Bayiha. The title of the course was ‘Managing in a Global Environment’, and I believe it was worth 4 credits. Apart from the traditional in-class interaction and teaching, Prof. Bayiha stirred us to read, think and share global occurrences regularly. I liked the textbook content as well as this ‘sharing practice’ went hand-in-hand with the purpose of the course.
