Clubs and Organizations at Assumption!

May 17, 2015 in Academics, Alive Campus, Campus Life

The second you step foot on Assumption’s campus, you’ll have people encouraging you to join clubs and to participate in any organization that you can. Assumption has a number of clubs and organizations to join, so it can seem overwhelming. I’ve narrowed them down to the best ones that I know of and have heard of, if you’re thinking about going there…here it goes.

Assumption Relay for Life!

Assumption Relay for Life!

1. CAB: This is more of an organization than a club, but it’s probably the biggest one on campus and the one that you will hear about the most. CAB stands for campus activities board, and it’s exactly what it sounds like. This group of people or students organizes many events on campus from Sibling’s weekend, to weekly events with comedians and musicians. Basically, when you go on a tour and a parent asks what “goes on” on the weekend, the tour guide will talk about CAB events, rather than the binge drinking and parties. CAB puts on some awesome events, and you technically pay for it with you’re tuition so I have tried to go to a number of them. You always get free food, prizes, and other fun stuff. As far as joining, it personally wasn’t my cup of tea, because I hate planning things and just never had enough time, but the people that I know that were in this organization absolutely loved it and made so many friends. If you’re looking for something to be involved in, this is a great way!

2. Reach Out Center: If you’re into volunteering, or just have some free time, I would encourage you to join the reach out center. They have so many opportunities for you to take part in, and the handling of everything is pretty professional. Through this club you can volunteer in many different places in Worcester that people have already volunteered at, so you will be welcomed and they will be familiar with an Assumption student their. It’s also really nice because at the end of the year they have a “social” where you get free food and t-shirts. This is the best way to get involved, volunteer, and make a difference on campus!

3. Academic Club: Of course, Assumption has an academic club for almost every major on campus. If you’re really passionate about your major or a subject, I would suggest joining one of these clubs. They’re a great resume booster and you can meet other people who have similar interests as you!

4. Relay for Life: This is  one of my favorite clubs/organizations on campus, because I have seen it grow tremendously in my four years there. The relay committee plans and puts on the Relay for Life event each year, and they spend almost the entire year preparing for it. Over the year they have fundraisers and other fun things to raise money to put on the event and to donate to Relay For Life. So many people on campus have gotten involved in Relay because it is for a great cause that has affected so many people, and because the event is awesome! From what I’ve seen, people involved in this absolutely love planning it all year and then seeing how great the event turns out. Each year, the event gets stronger and the money raised increases as well – they also pick really cool themes for each event that make them really fun! Just this past year, Assumption’s Relay committee and event raised almost $30,000! That is amazing for a school as small as Assumption. If you’ve ever been affected by cancer any way, or if you just want to help raise money for a great cause, I would highly suggest participating or even joining the committee!

So, there you have it – these are my favorite clubs/organizations at Assumption College that I think you should pursue! Of course, there are over 60 different clubs that you can choose from, so if you decide to go to Assumption, make sure your attend the majors fair that will showcase them all! Good Luck!

Wheelock College: Graduation May 2015

May 15, 2015 in Alive Campus, Campus Life, Career, Colleges

I am proud to announce that today, May 15, 2015 I have finally graduated from Wheelock College! I am the first one in my family to graduate from college and it is an achievement and dream that I am proudly to announce that it has come true. A lot of people say that college are the best years of a person’s life and I have to admit college was more of an self exploration and self change, according to my experience and thoughts, than fun and exciting. Don’t get me wrong it was fun and thrilling to explore the new independence from my parents and meet a lot of new friends, but the most part of my learning and experiences happened within myself and not with the friends I made.

Wheelock College Graduate!

Wheelock College Graduate!

The best times were the times when I gained new views on social justices, feminism and other controversial topics within the classroom and outside the campus. During these four years, I have learned to rethink, explore, and re-explore my ideas and views. I have never learned so much about my self in any other setting in my life and I have to say that it was thanks to the professors and staff at Wheelock College that enable me to explore and experience something new and different from my views and gave me a new gateway to the same ideas.

Aside from the discovery of new ideas and learning about myself, especially my passions and views, the teachers at Wheelock College are the most wonderful staff members and I will miss each and every one of them very much. I will miss a lot of professor who have pushed me to the fullest and challenge me not only in the classroom setting, but helped me achieve many goals outside the classroom. I will miss those teachers who were patience and understanding whenever I had a difficult time submitting an assignment and when I had a family problem that will affect my academic performance.

Lastly, I want to say to all the freshmans, sophomores, juniors, and soon to be seniors that you can do it! Graduating from college is possible if you put your mind to it and do not give up. I know some have circumstances that enable them to struggle through college, but don’t give up; the end of that dark tunnel is going to be the best day of your life. Talk to your professors, academic advisors and other faculty members whenever you have any problems or need some advise. You will see the different opportunities that will arise in your life as you see people are willing to help you achieve your goals.

I never thought that this day will ever come and 4 years of college went by so fast that by the time I realize it; it was graduation day.  Enjoy your time in college and never forget that you can make a difference in the world by being yourself and as Wheelock College’s mission statement states, “inspire a world of good” and create change by “improving the lives of children and families”.

Top 10 Goals For College Students

May 13, 2015 in Alive Campus, Top 10 Lists

College Goals

College Goals

It’s important to set goals for ourselves throughout college. It’s even more important to push ourselves to actually pursue those goals. I’ve compiled a list of the top 10 goals I feel all college students should aim to work towards, either in preparation of the real world or simply as a form of accomplishment for themselves.

1. Get a 4.0 at least once. This is a hard thing to do, but not impossible. Even if you can only manage to get straight As one semester out of eight, that’s a huge accomplishment in itself and something to be proud of. Set a goal for yourself at the beginning of the semester if you know it’s manageable. But if you’re taking Organic Chemistry, it’s probably best to wait until an easier semester.

2. Find an internship. By junior year, you should start looking for an internship to gain some real world experience in your field. It’ll give you substantial clarification if your major is the right choice for you. Chances are it will also lead to great connections that will assist you in your job search after you graduate, in addition to making your resume just a little more impressive to companies.

3. Meet your bridesmaids/ groomsmen. In other words, find a close group of friends you know you won’t lose touch with after you graduate. College is the time to develop amazing friendships that will last beyond walking across the stage at graduation. A handful of the people you meet should be the ones that you envision in your wedding party years down the road.

4. Learn how to grocery shop. Living on your own means you have to grocery shop instead of running to Chipotle every night. This doesn’t mean easy mac and ramen noodles should be your go-to meals on weeknights. You should be buying a variety of food groups at the grocery store once a week so you have plenty of nutritious food to make for yourself.

5. Cook healthy meals at least 4 times a week. It’s better to start taking care of your body earlier than later. If you know how to cook a healthy meal in college, then you’re doing it right. If not, look up some affordable and easy recipes that will keep you on track to staying healthy and avoiding fast food almost every night of the week. It will eventually catch up to you, so why not start adopting healthier habits now. You’ll thank yourself down the road, but always remember to treat yourself at least once a week.

6. Join at least one campus organization. This is always a great resume enhancer and also the perfect way to meet friends that share similar interests as you. For example, if you’re an English major, check out the campus magazine or newspaper.

7. Find a part-time job. It’s always a plus to make some extra spending money in college rather than relying on your parents. Plus, it’s a great addition to a resume that exemplifies time management and responsibility to prospective companies you may be applying for down the road.

8. Travel. This can either mean study abroad or simply take trips with your friends, whether that’s on a cruise, to Disney, or a short road trip. Whatever the case, find time to treat yourself to a vacation and break free from the stress of college. Those vacation days will slowly start to disappear once the weekends are your only “summer break.”

9. Learn how to dress professionally. Chances are, you will have to go on plenty of interviews during your post-graduation job search, so it’s beneficial to know ahead of time how to go about doing this. Invest in some work attire that’s age appropriate so you’re not completely lost the night before your interview.

10. Save money. College is a good time to start budgeting yourself rather than spending money on a new outfit for the themed party you have on Saturday night. Every little bit of money saved is a step closer to learning how to manage your money and spend it according to what is needed rather than wanted.

TV for College Students?

May 13, 2015 in Alive Campus

TVAs a cadet at the Virginia Military Institute with a hectic schedule, there isn’t much time to watch TV shows. Most cadets really do not have the time to watch the shows they wish they could, or they skip their homework and binge watch their favorite show and watch their GPA suffer because of it. However, on rare occasions when cadets do get free time they have their favorite shows they like to watch on Netflix.

I myself never really watched many TV shows before getting to college. I would much rather watch a movie any day. Additionally, I do not have Netflix and we are not allowed to have TVs in our rooms. Therefore, I do not have access to watch any TV shows. However, the one TV show that I like to watch, So You Think You Can Dance, takes place during the summer so I am usually able to watch it. If you are into contest TV shows and like any type of dancing, then this is the show for you. It is similar to Dancing with the Stars, but the contestants are not celebrities. Contestants compete in all genres of dance in order to be named America’s Favorite Dancer. It’s such a great show, but is not for everyone.

Now for the more up-to-date cadets that are on top of all the hottest TV shows, like my roommates, here are the TV shows you need to be watching according to them.

1. Breaking Bad: This show is about a chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with terminal cancer and teams up with a student to make meth. Need I explain more?

2. House of Cards: This show is about a congressman who works with his wife to seek revenge on the people who betrayed him. Sounds rather conniving, doesn’t it?

3. American Horror Story: This TV show probably beats them all. This is one of my roommates’ favorite shows. The plot of the show is about a family that moves into a haunted house haunted by demonic creatures. So if you are into scary movies, I would say this is the show for you.

4. The Walking Dead: This show is my other roommates’ favorite show. The general plot is about people trying to survive after a zombie apocalypse. So if you like zombies then this is the show for you.

5. Game of Thrones: This seems to be the show that everyone is talking about. It is a medieval fantasy epic about two powerful families playing a deadly game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. So if you are into medieval fantasy I would say this is the show for you.

6. Orange is the New Black: This is another show that everyone seems to be talking about. It is about a woman running from her past. She is a powerful businesswoman, but is put behind bars for her association with a drug runner 10 years earlier. She soon makes her way through the corrections system and adjusts to life behind bars making friends with many eccentric and unexpected people.

Overall, these shows seem to be currently on the hot list right now, so if you have the time or are looking for something to watch in your free time you might give these a try.

Community College Edition: Sports

May 9, 2015 in Alive Campus, Campus Life, Events

 

 

There are so many things I miss about high school. Prom, for one, was the best experience ever. But the sports makes a close second! I remember being so competitive; Rooting for my team and hoping we would be victorious (the competitive side in me made no choice for losing). But now those memories, are just… memories. I left my love for sports with my high school career and I haven’t had a need for it since. Fast- forward four years, and now I am in college. College is a HUGE experience and widely known for its sports. So what are college sports like? Well my pretties, here is the Community College Edition. #enjoy

1. No One Really Knows the Who, What, When, and Where

This, of course, is debatable, but at least at Pasadena City College, no one knows what sports are being played and at what times. I tried to get into college sports so many times during my first semester, but it was merely impossible. You could ask everyone in your class what games are that day and no one would know, nonetheless care. At a community college, sports are just so watered down. I think this may be because everyone is just trying to get out and into a four- year college. No one has time for sports, besides, there is always time for that when we get into the college of our dreams! *cough cough* UCLA Bruins.

2. School Spirit Is Dead

Of course, no team becomes victorious without its fans! But then there is the moment when you realize, your community college team(s) have no fans… I believe school spirit makes the game more interesting. It is just so fun being able to trash talk rival teams and to wear temporary tattoos of your school’s mascot. But community college is different. With everyone studying so hard, we all just want to go home and sleep at the end of the day, NOT stay at school. Of course, team spirit varies at every school, so don’t feel terrible if you plan on attending a community college; only YOU can determine how great your college experience will be.

3. You Find Out Your Team Loses Anyway

See #2 and #1

Because what point is there winning if no one knows when the game is, goes to the game, and cheers their team on?

4. HOMECOMING! 

Before you get too excited, let me elaborate: No gorgeous gowns are involved, no curls, pearls, and nail polish is optional (GASP!) It’s just football, and that’s all it will ever be. The days of crowning Kings and Queens are over (at least at PCC), and wearing your school spirit is a must. On the contrary, people actually do attend the Homecoming game. So for one night, you will experience a TON of high school nostalgia and wish those days would have never ended. #trustme. It is a night of pride, spirit, and becoming united as a school. So enjoy it while it lasts! But hey, if you must wear a flowing ballgown and 6 inch pumps, don’t let me stop you! You do you, girl. #girlswillbegirls
