If you’re a college student, you’re probably done with your spring semester classes. It’s officially summer and you don’t have...
"GET. YOUR. MONEY."
Making your schedule in college takes almost as much effort as writing a ten-page paper or studying for an exam. You have to make sure you get the classes you need, and they all need to be at certain times so there isn't any overlap (we don't have Time-Turners in muggle world). One of the hardest parts about making a schedule is picking your "easy" classes.
This week my college goes back to school. I'm not going back. Since graduating, I've been wondering when it will hit me that I'm not in college anymore.
We've all been there: the class you planned to take next semester is now full. Even though you need that class to qualify for another upper-division course, accept that dream internship AND graduate on time, there just aren't enough seats. How much would you pay to add that course? Is that even fair? Is that even legal?!?
Here at the University of Alabama, I've been really fortunate with my class experiences. I graduated with a class of 102 students, so coming to a large SEC school was definitely culture shock. My first class had 300 students in it, and I felt like a number.
As I write this, I am about to embark on my final semester of my college career. Weird, right? It almost seems like yesterday when I was a little freshman moving in to my dorm. Except for the growth part, a lot has changed in these three and a half years. I’ve learned the hardships of picking the right classes and managing my social life and my studies, but it was all worth the ride.
It's the summer after you've graduated high school. You've finished your exams. You've finished the college application process. You have your diploma, you've taken the pictures in the cap and gown and you finally decided on a college. So now all you want to do is kick back and relax and enjoy an entire summer free of responsibility and full of hanging with your friends before you each go your separate ways to start some new adventures.
Brace yourself ladies, because today is not just any other Friday. Today is Friday the 13th.
There are a lot of different illness associated with different times of the year. There's flu season in the winter. Allergy season in the spring. Sunburns in the summer. But around early April and May a different disease starts to take hold, and it goes after a very specific group. College seniors.
Since it's that time of year, the time for choosing colleges (and for some, leaving college) Jezebel has decided to depart some wisdom on all the high school senior hopefuls out here, asking them to really think about what they want out of there college experience, about why they're choosing the schools they're choosing, and the effects those choices will have on their college careers.
The semester is winding down. Soon there will be papers to write and finals to study for, which means cutting out the procrastination and cracking down on the studying, which isn't always easy. But fear not, our resident Web Spy has done her research, providing CollegeCandy readers with ten surefire ways to get organized and start studying.
It’s finals week. You’re living on coffee and chocolate. Your days are spent in the library. Your nights are spent in the library. You’re wracking your brain trying to remember historical facts no one knows about and chemical equations you will never use. You’re stressed and crazed and far from in the mood to write. But write you will have to do.
