Asinine Advising

Students often complain about not getting enough help from their advisors

by Published: Nov 10, 2010

I have heard a vast mul­ti­tude of hor­ror sto­ries from both friends and strangers about hav­ing issues with their advisors.

Students being one class short of being able to grad­u­ate, not hav­ing enough classes over the 300 level to grad­u­ate, tak­ing classes that they did not even need, and being told a required course trans­ferred when it really didn’t are just a few exam­ples of these prob­lems. (more…)

Skillful Selling

How to efficiently buy and sell textbooks

by Published: Nov 10, 2010

Textbooks are an obvi­ous neces­sity for col­lege, but it does not mean you need to buy all the rec­om­mended books from only one bookstore.

Most of us have already reg­is­tered for our spring semes­ter classes, and we will be prepar­ing to sell back our books from this semes­ter and replace them with a tower of new books. (more…)

Make the Call Home

Though parents seem to check in too often, they deserve the time of day

by Published: Nov 10, 2010

As I fin­ished up my senior year of high school, I could not wait to get my freedom.

Sure, I loved my par­ents and my home, but there was just some­thing so entic­ing about a fresh start, about mak­ing my own deci­sions, about essen­tially hav­ing my own place to stay and being able to keep it how I wanted it. (more…)
