Managing Relationships

This workshop was probably to ease freshmen into college by telling us that now that we’re in college we’re going to have to balance our time with family/friends/others with schoolwork and such. They tried to explain how we should split our time and prioritizing and organization. This was useful and I learned about time management.

Mediating Conflicts

This workshop was very disorganized, despite the need to RSVP online (which turned out to be compeltely disregarded anyway), and everyone was just crammed into a room until fire safety hazards were at the limit. A psychology professor talked to the large crowd of people, seated in chairs, on the floor, or standing, about cliched situations of conflict and obvious ways to solve them. The only new thing I learned was about the Ombuds organization at Baruch, which I actually originally had a sense of anyway. I did not enjoy this workshop very much.

Your Life, Your Money

I went to an event held in the multipurpose room last November and it was a screening of a program called “Your Life, Your Money”, hosted by Donald Faison (that guy that plays Turk on Scrubs!), and a panel discussion afterward involving 3 people who were in the video and a HSBC (who sponsored the event) representative. It was supposed to educate the audience about personal finance. While it was not as informative as I had hoped it would be, it was still entertaining and fun. There was also a lot of free stuff! Free USB when you walked in, free dinner, free copy of the DVD and book, and I also won one of their raffles!

Gallery Tour: Mercedes Matters

Last month I went to the art gallery to see the Mercedes Matters exhibition. While she was not extremely famous, as our tour guide informed us, she is still important to the art world. There were two paintings from when Mercedes was a child. There were then many still lifes when she began her training as an artist. As she grew older, her paintings began to become more abstract, morphing into a conglomeration of colors and lines rather than shapes, conveying the feel of a portrait rather than depicted in a realist fashion.

Reading and Taking Notes

SACC’s workshop about reading and taking notes was very interesting. They discussed different methods and styles of note taking. They also discussed active reading and analysis and how to become better at doing these things. I thought it was interesting and helpful because I picked up a few new tips that helped me later on in the year.

WIB workshop

I went to a WIB workshop last Tuesday and it was interesting. A lady from Mary Kay (it’s kind of like Avon) came and spoke to us about how these sorts of companies worked and some of their products. She did a few demonstrations and took questions about the business. The people who asked questions got raffle tickets. There was a bowl of free samples at the end.

Bearcat: The Other Google

I attended the workshop on october 20, 2009 at the library. I doubled it up since the SACC workshop ended so early. Pretty much they talked about other resources besids google. Although i was already familiar with various database due to my previous school, i learned that there is even more that is provided by Baruch. It was really cool because i found new places to go to in order to get articles and stuff for my research paper. its actually pretty exciting, because literally as of now, i am actually using the database that i learned during the workshop.

Now this was a helpful workshop!

Meet the Greeks

i attended meet the greeks awhile back. it was on september 15, 2009 from 6-9, of course I didnt really stay for the whole thing. I remember them empasizing the importance of greek life during college. Personally I was not really into it, but i was intrigued enough to consider pledging. i talked to people from sigma beta rho and thought about joining their frat, but after awhile it was really time consuming. i was not able to manage my time very well because their time were not flexible.

overall, nothing important really came out of this workshop. if anything, it help me become more aware of whats going in baruch. for some people it may have been life changing, for me, it was just one thoseĀ  “oh thats cool” moments. nothing big.

Arts at Baruch: Gallery @ 22nd street.

I went to the gallery fair at 22nd street and lexington two weeks ago. it was actually pretty cool. it was pretty small though. i found it amazing that we even have a gallery in the first place. i was really intrigued by some of the paintings and of course puzzled with others. it was helpful in a sense that i guess i know where i can go just to stop and sit just to see art in the baruch campus. Like I said it is nice, but i think its just a tad small. And also, the line for the wait to get in was ridiculous!

Managing Relationships

This was a very interesting workshop. We talked about relationships and how time consuming they can be, but its always important to make sure that enough time is given to a relationship. It was pretty helpful and I learned a few things that I believe are helpful to my own relationship.
