Packing for College

 
Sending a child away for college and helping them pack brings up so many emotions and memories. As you remember back to your days in college or anticipate their days, don't forget some of the most simple things that may be needed and should be packed. It's easy not to forget the daily necessities like clothes and toiletries. But, don't forget the carryall they will need to bring their toiletries to the bathroom with them. Personalizing a bag or container for their items is a great idea. Help keep them organized with laundry bins, bags and other containers to make it easy to bring their items to the washing machines and/or back home for washing by mom or dad....
 

Too Much to Read and Too Little Time

 
I spent the better part of 17 years in and out of higher education. Eleven of those years were invested in taking classes and pursuing degrees. In the process of having to read a lot of books and articles that I didn't really have time to read, I began asking myself, "Isn't there a more effective way to do this?" Like many of you, I had a life outside of the academic world. I had a family, jobs, responsibilities, and the desire to enjoy some portion of each week. Reading was necessary, but it wasn't something I always enjoyed....
 

Distance Learning Degree Program - How to Study

 
The format of distance learning courses is different than what most students have experienced. The teaching style is more student directed and you will have to become accustomed to these differences. Distance learning relies heavily on technology. If you aren't computer and internet savvy, you will need to learn new skills, in addition to your coursework. Look for classes or workshops on computers and the internet. These are often available in public libraries or community centers. You may feel overwhelmed at the thought of taking another class, but the time you spend learning to use the technology will save you time in the long run....

Online Nursing Degree For Busy Nurses

 
Many who work in the healthcare or nursing industry know without question that free time (time within which to relax and call your own) is at a premium. In this regard, they work in extremely demanding jobs: both in terms of the jobs they do and the hours on the job they spend. Notwithstanding this, many would like to advance their careers. To do this, nurses nearly always need to spend time studying. But, as we have said, nurses' free time is a premium - so how can a nurse combine study with work, when there is (a) so little time available;...

College Residence Life Staff: Speak to Gain Respect

 
When you speak, do residents listen or ignore you? If you're having trouble commanding respect, it could be the way you're saying it. Here is a list of words that can sabotage your effectiveness as a communicator. See if you recognize any of these red flags in your speech: Should, Have to: These come across as condescending. Instead of telling people what they should do, offer suggestions. Then let them decide. Always, Never, Everyone, Nobody: These words rarely paint an accurate picture and come across as over-dramatizing....
 

Self Marketing 101 - Why Students Should Tell Lies

 
Everybody lies, and storytellers are some of the best liars around. But here is the problem: People like storytellers. They hate liars. The meaning is similar but different. In the South, storytellers sit on porch swings and drink ice tea. Liars stare down the barrel of shotguns. I should know. I'm from the South and we shoot liars all the time. Of course, I'm lying. But I can't help it. After all, I am a "Southern" storyteller. I emphasis the adjective because I believe Southerners tell stories for reasons that are not always apparent to our friends in other parts of the United States....
 

Prepping for the new SAT I

 
On March 12, 2005, high school juniors across the country were the first to take the new SAT I test, the standardized testing used in the college admission process. The test is 3 hours and 45 minutes, instead of just 3 hours, and contains a third writing section. So, the new test has three sections: Math, Critical Reading, and Writing, each scored out of 800 points, for a total of 2400 possible points. To prepare for this test, students must realize that the test has not changed that dramatically and in some ways it is easier with the insidious and ambiguous analogies eliminated from the reading section....
