Advantages of a Catholic school

by / March 30th, 2018 / No Comments »
Attending a Catholic school comes with lots of advantages, and one of them being Easter break.  We had a short week due to Easter coming up. Not many schools get to have an Easter break and I feel proud to be part of this community that upholds christian values. Every student needs some time off to either catch up on courses or just reflect on what they have accomplished so far. We all go through tremendous stress, assignments, exams, finances etc and having a few days to just cool it off helps a lot. I'm using this break to do some assignments and of course watch some Netflix. Another advantage of a Catholic school is that the environment is safe and supportive. We are not scared to go to professors for help when we do not understand course material. They are there to help and support us. Read the rest of this entry »

Exam coming up…

by / March 22nd, 2018 / Comments Off on Exam coming up…
I have an upcoming Human Bio exam tomorrow. Exams can be a lot stressing. I tend to wait till the last minute to study for all my exams, something which I do not encourage anyone to do. However I have managed to survive all of them since I am able to focus under pressure. This is the third test I'm taking for this class and these exams contribute a lot to the final grade. My trick is to pull an all nighter, revealing the study materials I have. Of course I would have to take a little nap in the afternoon. I have noticed that after studying the night before an exam I will not be able to forget the information at all. We also did a review of the exam in class so that helped a little bit. She also gave us study guides which I always find helpful since you will have a clue on what the exam is all about.

Mentor Connection Event

by / March 20th, 2018 / Comments Off on Mentor Connection Event

Tonight I attended the fifth Mentor Connection event. This is a series of six events lined up through the academic year for students to be paired up with professionals in their anticipated career. The mentor is there to provide guidance and advice on steps to take for your career.  The program by Northforce, is meant to help us students before we venture into our desired career paths. During these events we will engage in discussions on various topics that may affect us in business world. Tonight’s topic was on volunteering in the community and how that makes a huge difference in the community. Volunteering is also a way to know your skills and apply them in your career. I have learned a lot from all those past events and would encourage every student to at participate in Mentor Connection. Besides, this might be a good chance to create lifelong connections with mentors, who could hire you after school. The program is free to all CSS and UMD students, and there is lots of bonding, and well of course good food at each event. Read the rest of this entry »

End of Spring Break

by / March 18th, 2018 / Comments Off on End of Spring Break
Spring break came and went by pretty fast, but I definitely enjoyed every moment of it. I was not lucky enough to travel somewhere but I got to sleep in and watch lots of Netflix. The feeling of not having to stress about assignments and deadlines was just awesome. On the other hand the weather this week was perfect so I did a bit of hiking. Now that registration week is coming up, I have to figure out which classes I'm going to be taking next year.I will set up a time with my academic advisor and take care of this. I am definitely looking on to the next half semester as well, cannot wait to get over spring semester. I am not taking very hard classes so I should be able to cope up well. And well I'm also looking forward to the Easter Break!
