The original plan was for me to discuss tips in avoiding sickness during the 1st winter weeks back at school, but I think WebMD and other sites have babbled enough on this topic. Instead, I wanted to share and perhaps get some advice on a proper timetable and action plan for financing my future academic year in the fall.
For those that are dependent in funding from sources besides your parents, I highly recommend looking into your next semester ASAP in the following ways:
Hello fellow Arts&Science’ers! I am studying abroad through the Discover Germany Program at the University of Kentucky, an exchange program that offers a 4-week introduction to studying abroad and emersion of German culture in Berlin, Germany. Therefore, I have decided to create a smallish blog series on my adventure to not only share in my hopefully interesting entries, but to catalog this life-changing experience. Thus far, my trip has begun with a set of already new experiences.
If you have read my bio, which I assume you all of course have done, I briefly mentioned my longing for any good reads and the lack of time that always prevents this need from being fulfilled during the semester. Through the glory of seasonal breaks, however, I was given a morsel of precious time that I willingly sacrificed for some recreational reading. Although I read this book some time ago, I felt it was due a revisit so that I may be able to share the brilliance I found it to be with all of you eager minds.
Sitting in a lecture hall with 100-150 other psychology students isn't quite the definition of exciting. If you're an undergraduate student considering graduate school, getting out of the classroom and into the field of research is extremely beneficial to both your resume and your knowledge in psych. I am in my 3rd semeser as a 395 under the direction of Dr. Ellen Usher. It's one thing to learn about Albert Bandura and self-efficacy through a textbook and powerpoint presentations.
This past Summer, I had the wonderful opportunity to study abroad with Semester at Sea. It was a fantastic learning experience and I was able to make many new friends. I was on the MV Explorer for a month and was able to see seven countries. With this program, you have the ability to study about a particular concept and then experience it in the countries you visit. I took a class in education on board the ship. My class then had the opportunity to teach in Honduras and Trinidad and Tobago. This was my favorite experience during my voyage.
