All about finals

At the end of every semester, time moves twice as fast. There are tests, final projects and, of course, finals. The tasks that need to be accomplished are overwhelming if you think of them all at once. More than anything, this is a test of survival and you should prepare accordingly.

How to choose a major that fits your life
Tuesday, November 11, 2014

How to choose a major that fits your life As this is my second time in college, I feel that the years I have spent in school have indelibly taught me a few things, one of the most valuable being how to choose a major. While some students know from the time they are a small child that they’re going to own their own business or cure cancer, I was not one of those children. At five I wanted to be a garbage collector; at eight, a flight attendant; and at ten, a professional soccer player. I am now twenty-nine years old, have never worked in these industries, and can safely say I never will. Read the rest of entry »
