Overal-LC Experience

So, since the final day of class ended, this is the last blog I’m posting. Overall it’s been great and definitely worth it. I’m glad I got to meet so many interesting people like you guys at Baruch, so I know these four years aren’t going to be borning or dreary. In this LC, I got to see a Jay-Z concert courtesy of Krizelle asking how to get tickets to a supposedly booked concert, I was introduced to halal and the beauty of the tasty gyro, if it wasn’t for Jason mentioning the sheer awesomeness of Fuerza Bruta, I probably would not have gone when the opportunity came, and most importantly, I got to make a lot of friends that I hope will last these four years at Baruch. As for the LC requirements, the seminars were not to be looked forward to, and yeah, these blogs were somewhat tedious, but overall, the experience was worth it. Here’s to the best for all of us! LC 02!

Finals Week

Our final week of class has officially ended and now starts the beginning of final exams. For the most part, we’ve knocked down the Library course on the list. The only ones left are English, Art History, History, and Math (in essence, everything else). Studying for these and completing them in a timely manner is going to take a lot of patience, diligence, and discipline. What is making the concentration so difficult is how close we are to a one month vacation where we can spend that time relaxing, or partying, or doing anything else (the choice is yours). However, that one month vacation seems like a blessing and a curse. It feels almost as if getting back into the groove of things for the second semester is going to be a lot harder than the one week vacation we would get in high school. Guess the best thing to do is not to treat it too much like a summer vacation.

Trip to Philadelphia

As most of you know, our college, along with Student Life and USG organized a trip for student to attend an overnight trip to Philadelphia. For those of you that had criticisms on the lack of a social life that the Baruch campus has, this was the trip for you. For those of you that have an infatuation with Philly Cheese steaks, this was ALSO the trip for you. I can truly say that this helped me to get to know people in Baruch experience its diversity, and to interact with other people outside my LC and classes in a completely different environment. It was great to interact with faculty and USG leaders and get to know them on a personal basis as well. Despite the cloudy day that it was during the day we toured Philadelphia, the city was still beautiful (and the cheesesteaks were delicious!). Overall, the trip was planned very well and it was definitely a trip which everyone should have taken advantage of.

Resume Writing Workshop

This was a workshop I attended a while back, once upon a time when these were mandatory. At first, I was not in the least excited to attend this one, because my previous experiences with the workshops weren’t so great.  On the contrary, this was probably the most helpful workshop I attended. In this workshop, they discussed the components of how the resume and cover letter should be and what to include, strategies to excel in interviews and the resources at the STARR Career Development Center. The most informative aspect of the workshop was the explanation of the STARR Career Development Center elaborating on job fairs, and the resources available to us as students on their website. Overall, this is a resource that I am glad I have in the event it is ever needed.

last week!!

My first semester in Baruch College is going to the end. I think the time is going so fast. This week is the last week of classes. I have a lot of papers and tests during this week. I need to spend more time to study. I am so tired and sleepy. But we will have one month vacation after that. Thus, I have to work hard for the last week. I hope I will have good grades in my first semester. I think all of my professors and classmates are very nice, so I will miss them after this semester. On the other side, I am looking for a part-time job right now because I think I should find something  to do during the one month vacation.

arts workshop

i went to the misckin gallery and saw the mercedes matter exhibit. at first i though itwould be about space and the galaxy but it was about a woman and her paintings and her actual name was mercedes matter, wow. but her painting were pretty good, they were very abstract and you couldn’t even tell whether a red spot was an apple or not. and the exhibit was arranged very interestingly, in the way that there were three rooms, one containing paintings from her youth, middle life, and older life.

registration

Regristration was extremely hectic. Even though I made two copies of what my schedule should look like, it came out to be completely different when making my official schedule. Only one of my choices were open, while the rest were completely filled. The site kept on lagging as well, so I had trouble looking for available slots. I hope I get a seat for POL2353, but as of now, no one seems to be dropping any classes from the courses/teachers I want. Additionally, when making the schedule, I have to consider free time and work time. This is going to be one fun spring term…

personal enrichment workshop

While attending the academic advisement: student services for the personal enrichment workshop, I was able to gain great knowledge on all the different resources Baruch offers. From athletics to financial aid, there were various counserlors to help guide the freshmans into using these sources that are available to everyone. I grabbed as much flyers and pamphlets as possible for future references. I learned the most in his workshop because in order to recieve credit for attending, I had to go to at least 10 tables and listen to what the counselor had to say. I then had to ask for their holepunch on the card, which indicates which stations I went to. Even though it was pretty crowded, this workshop really helped me with my freshman year.

registration

On the registration day, I was excited and confused. I was sitting in there and waiting for my appointment time. When there was my time to register, I typed all my classes’ codes to there, but two of them were closed already. Before the appointment time, I saw there still had spaces. I was so upset about that because I thought that was my prefect schedule. However, I had to choose other classes to take. Finally, I took five classes for next semester. There are English, anthropology, history, psychology, and public administration. Although I can not get all the classes I want, I hope that I can change them later. I think that is not fair for freshman because freshman is the last one to choose classes. Thus, we can not choose all the classes we want.
