Merry Christmas

Dec 19, 2014 | Author: Dillan Torres

Christmas is around the corner and I hope everyone is working hard trying to give their parents the best possible gift that they can ask for. What I feel this is, is to see their child being a prosperous and intelligent student that they know they are. This way once we all show our parents the grades we got and they see how great we have been doing as well as how responsible we have been they then would love to give us the gifts that they bought. It will show them that we deserve it. I know I have the grades to show my mother and I cannot wait to see that joyous smile on her face, which is all I need to make my christmas a merry christmas. I want to wish all of UC a early Merry Christmas and best of luck on your grades.

Advice while on Winter Break

Dec 19, 2014 | Author: Dillan Torres

So being that Winter Break is here, there is some advice that I have to offer. Yes, Im  sure that everyone is tired of school work and would like a break from doing anything, but one great thing to do while on winter break is trying to go back to an old job that you once had. This not only continues to add to your resume, but it shows responsibility and allows you to collect some money for the spring semester. This helps you so that you do not have to go to mom and dad for money during the spring semester and you start the semester with some money in your pocket. As I mentioned you want to continue to build your resume as well as just have something to keep you busy and out of trouble. So my advice to all is to go out there job searching if you haven’t already done so and best of luck finding something in time. Happy Holidays.

Finals/Internship

Dec 19, 2014 | Author: Dillan Torres

Finals and internships are finally over and have come to an end. I hope everyone has put there all into studying and have tried their best to receive good grades  not only on their finals, but for the semester. As for me I did the best I could reviewing all I needed to review for my synthesis final, but it was hard trying to study being that it was all based off of concepts and  not memory. It was a 3 hour long exam that took the full three hours and then some. After I took the exam my brain was fried, but I was ready to just go on my fieldwork. On my fieldwork experience I did everything that was asked of me and then some. I was always seeking out opportunity to learn in different areas of OT as well as other disciplines that you see in the medical field like PT, Social work and speech-language pathologist etc. This was a tough semester, but I got through it and am ready to go on christmas break and enjoy my time off. I hope everyone did there professor opinionnaires, hope all get good grades and happy holidays everyone.

Finals Sminals

Dec 18, 2014 | Author: Michael Defone

There’s only one thing on everyone’s mind the last weeks of school every semester, and that is finals. Now, it’s not the actual word “finals” that get people all fired up on Red Bull and coffee; it’s the stress that follows that haunting word. Here are a couple ways to remember that you’re smart and it’s just a word.14189202329892121147476

The first way that I found that was very effective is you just pretend it’s another test. The simple fact of the matter is the kids over hype finals week. If you paid attention all year and did your work, it’s literally just another test, and an easy test because you studied all year. Just remember that, if you’r worried about finals you, either might fail or you didn’t study as hard as you should. Trust me, I know this because I’ve been in that situation.

Another way to calm your nerves during that week is to find time to settle down, relax, and get your mind off studying. If you study for too long your brain will go to mush. I have a very close friend who would  study for 11-12 hours a day straight, and by the end of the day, she couldn’t every form simple sentences unless it involved her field of study.1418920192645-571210582

My last tip for you guys is just study all year for your finals. Everyone is so scared and nervous about just one simple word. Everyone who is at college earned their way there because they are bright human beings. So next semester, don’t let finals be your downfall; let finals be the icing on your cake. So, I’ll see you next semester, and may your finals week be great.

Importance of Resumes

Dec 18, 2014 | Author: Benjamin Mehic

Besides a college degree or an internship, building a solid resume is arguably the most important step to landing a job after graduation.

Some college students make the mistake of thinking I’ll build my resume after I graduate, when it’s time to job-hunt, but in reality, you’re supposed to start working on your resume way before graduation.

Getting an internship often requires a resume, and believe it or not, other college students will apply for the same internship. Like any job or career, a resume could separate a good candidate from a great one when searching for an internship.

Constantly updating your resume with volunteer work, activities you’re involved with in school, and past jobs is essential.

Here are some tips via Monster.com,

Many students have part-time, seasonal or temporary work experience that is unrelated to future career goals. You don’t want to pack your document with irrelevant details, says Feldberg. On the other hand, prospective employers value candidates who demonstrate dependability and a strong work ethic, even if the experience is in a different industry.

Having experience, whether a part-time job, internship, or volunteer work, is obviously important when building a resume. Still, tweaking your resume for certain applications is also important. List the experience you have in the order of the requirements the employer is targeting. Not every employer is seeking the same requirements, so update your resume as need be.

How to Make the Most of Your Winter Break

Dec 17, 2014 | Author: MaryEllen Fitzgerald-Bord

Finals are over! You have no idea how thrilled I am to say that… And I’m sure if you’re a college student reading this, you’re just as thrilled. So now, you have an entire break stretching out in front of you. The first few days are for the very necessary sleeping days and recuperating days after all-nighters and study binges. However, once a few days have passed and you’ve recovered from finals, you find yourself with a plethora of free time you haven’t had to yourself since August before classes started. So, this blog post is going to help you manage all of your free time…because it can be harder than it seems.

Actually get dressed some days: While it may be tempting to just lay around in pajamas every day of break, resist the urge! Maybe set aside one day a week as your “lounge day” and wear your pajamas and messy hair to your heart’s content. However, the other days of the week, you should actually put on real clothes, and look (at least a little bit) presentable. It’ll make you feel more productive, even if you didn’t really do anything.

Set an alarm: While it may be tempting to sleep your entire break away, sleeping until the late afternoon wastes valuable morning time! You don’t have to get up insanely early, but make sure to be up before regular people are eating lunch! The early bird gets the worm, and all that. But also, it won’t be as big of an adjustment when classes do start again and you have to be ready for 8:30s.

Make a mini winter break bucket list: Take time out before the craziness of a new semester sets in, and do things you wouldn’t have time to do during a semester. Plan little activities with family and friends, and make the most of your free time. Go to the movies, go shopping, and especially take advantage of all of the holiday activities!

Forget about your grades: If you did the student opinionnaires, you’ll get your grades December 23rd, and for those that didn’t, you’ll get your grades a week later. That can be a stressful time. I know whenever I check my grades, I get incredibly nervous, and my heart beats fast. It’s fine to freak for a while, either good or bad. But, don’t let a bad grade ruin your entire break. If you didn’t get that A or B you were aiming for, don’t beat yourself up about it. Either let it go, or figure out if you need to retake the course…but don’t spend all break on it. Deal with it, and then put it to the back of your mind.

 Don’t forget about your classes next semester: Check your email! Order the textbooks you need for the class. Look if your professor wants you to read certain materials. Don’t completely forget about the work you are going to have to do next semester! Brace yourself, and prepare.

The most important tip though is to have a great break! Enjoy the time off because before you know you’ll be back at Utica College ready to start a new semester!

Things to Remember Before and After Break

Dec 15, 2014 | Author: Tessa Lamper

I know it is the last day of finals, and some people have left already, but I, like many others, am not able to leave until tomorrow! It is inevitable: every break, I always manage to forget something to take home or to bring back… I also know some of you who have the same problem as well! This winter break, I have a fool proof way of remembering everything to take home and bring back.

Before Break:

1. Go through your daily routine and put all of your necessities in a pile (even if you still need it). It gives you a visual of what you need to take home and helps remind you of everything when you are about to leave because you have already seen it all there!

2. Do not forget your fish… or other pets… (I had hermit crabs for my first two years at Utica College!). Also remember to have a plan of how to transport them. I kept my Beta Fish container that I bought my fish, Leonardo in just to transport him. IMG_0734 Leonardo DiCaprio is all ready to go!

3. Do not forget to clean your room, do your laundry and take out your trash! You do not want to come back to ants and a stinky room!

4. I also take home everything I do not need, such as my Christmas decorations, summer clothes and whatever other things I do not use or need anymore at school. I live 5 hours away so I do not get to go home very often to do these things!

5. If you are driving home, make sure you check your car! Make sure the tires and oil are safe and ready to go and make sure you have your phone charged in case of emergency. JUST DONT TEXT AND DRIVE! :)

After Break:

1. Remember to bring back your necessities, such as all of the items you wanted to make sure you did not forget before leaving! Last year, I forgot my hair brush (which is extremely important or else I will look like a caveman. Trust me, it’s for all of the safety of the civilians of Utica College!).

2. Make sure you have all of your clothes and whatnot cleaned and ready to go so you don’t forget anything important, and so you do not need to do laundry as soon as you get back.

3. If you are like me and will not be able to go home until the spring break, remember to bring back spring clothes and jackets; you never know what will happen with the weather in Utica, New York!

4. Make sure you have your classes figured out, your payments made and your books are bought! It relieves a lot of stress to know you just need to worry about studying!

5. Bring your game face! It’s a new semester, so if you did not get the 4.0 fall semester (which was my original goal…) you can still accomplish it this coming semester! Be positive and ready to work hard, and you will be off to a great start! IMG_1251 I am so excited to see my horse!! Hopefully I do not forget anything due to the near-bursting excitement!

 

Grade Anticipation…

Dec 15, 2014 | Author: Tessa Lamper

IMG_1344Today, Monday the 15th, I finished my last final exam at 10:30 a.m. I have been stressing about all of my finals for the past few weeks, and now that I am finally done with classes (until the spring), I am able to relax…NOT!!!! I have found that completing my last final exam of the semester has given me more stress than the actual finals! There is definitely something wrong here!!! I was stressing all day over…

“What are my exam grades going to be? I think I did well… But maybe not.. What if I do not get the C or higher in Gross Anatomy? What if I do not get the 3.0 that I need to maintain in order to remain in the Occupational Therapy program? What am I going to do?!!!!!!”

So then, I was talking to my friends, and we were all venting about our grades and feeding off of each other’s nerves (which of course is never good) and thus led to a “Post Final Meltdown.” The definition of a “Post Final Meltdown” (for me at least) is when you are very stressed and debating moving to Africa and saving the rhinos and elephants. You also may or may not consume a large quantity of chocolate…

So naturally, like every college student does, I called the wisest person I know…My mom. In this time of crisis, like every other, she gave me the best advice of all: DO NOT STRESS!!!! What is done is done, and everything will be okay. There is nothing that can be changed, and if the outcome is not preferable, it is no big deal. It will all work out, no matter what! She also told me to get out and have some fun, like getting an ice cream cone or going to the movies to cool down after a long week of final exams, projects and presentations. Just de-stress in general!

Now, usually in my blogs, I give my personal advice. In this one, as you could see, I was the one in need of advice. The advice helped me out a lot, and I am finally relaxing with popcorn, 25 Days of Christmas on ABC Family, and my best friend beside me. I hope my mom’s advice can help you guys as well! IMG_1343

Final Grades

Dec 15, 2014 | Author: Benjamin Mehic

Finals week is finally over, and the fall semester has come to an end.

via PVLD Kids Blog

via PVLD Kids Blog

Everyone is anxiously looking forward to receiving their final course grades. But, how do you view your grades?

All of your grades will be accessible through Banner Web (located here). Here’s more information about when the grades will become available, via the school’s provost:

For graduating seniors and students who have completed the on-line evaluation of all their classes, grades will be available from 9:00 am on Tuesday, December 23rd. For all other students, grades will be available from 9:00 am on Wednesday, December 31, 2014.

If your account doesn’t have any holds on it, you should be able to view your grades this month.

Final exams usually make up 10-25% of your grade, so depending on how you think you did on it, it’s possible to estimate your grade using the course syllabus. Good luck!

 

 

Midnight Breakfast!

Dec 9, 2014 | Author: Nayary Rosario

Midnight breakfast for me is the funnest day of the whole semester for various reasons. We get to do so many things such as eat my favorite meal at night, get on a mechanical bull, use a photo booth with your friends, make dog tags, and get drawn as a cartoon. Luckily I was able to enjoy all of them except for the human cartoon drawing. Apart from that, we also got to see the fraternities dance.

The mechanical bull overall brought the most laughter to me, and was where I spent most of my time. Watching everybody get on and see how many seconds they lasted on it made me laugh so much. It took me a while to convince one of my friends to do it, and I did not leave until she actually went on it. After I convinced my friend Laura to do it, every time she fell down, she got back up on the bull to do it. It was so funny. Had a really good time watching everybody.

As I was getting my dog tag, the line was so long. I got to the line at 10 p.m. and was able to get my dog tag by 11:20 p.m. Even though it took long, I was happy because I love my dog tag, and I am planning on wearing it when I go home for Christmas break. The picture is of me me holding my neice who is 2 months old. Can’t wait to see her when I go back home.

Final Exams: Schedule

Dec 9, 2014 | Author: Benjamin Mehic

It’s finals week!

Here’s the schedule for final examinations, from utica.edu

 

via utica.edu

via utica.edu

As always though, make sure to check your syllabus for the correct date and time for final examinations. The schedule above is accurate, but for the sake of being 100% correct, check your syllabus.

Most of you have probably already begun preparing for final exams, and if you haven’t done so, it’s probably a good time to start. Reviewing old tests and quizzes, notes, and asking any last minute questions is key. Remember, final exams are a huge chunk of your grade, so it’s important to ace it!

Good luck, everyone!

‘Tis the Season

Dec 8, 2014 | Author: MaryEllen Fitzgerald-Bord

Around this time of year, everyone looks to give back. While you should always think of those less fortunate throughout the entire year, the holidays really are a season of giving. Fortunately, loads of organizations on the Utica College campus have that very idea in mind when it comes to various events.

The Alpha Phi Omega -Petitioning Group at Utica College putting together food baskets for Thanksgiving.

Alpha Phi Omega donated Thanksgiving meals to those in need a few weeks ago. It was incredibly rewarding to see the happy faces of the families as they received the food.

The ASA Gray Biological Society making holiday cards.

The Asa Gray Biological society made holiday cards for a local nursing home and even went caroling. It was fun to be creative when making the cards, and the group even got compliments on them! The singing was also great fun for those who went.

Charitable events can be incredibly fun, while also being worthwhile. I love being creative and designing things (like cards!), but it can also be as simple as donating a toy for the holiday season.

Utica College still has several events going on that students can participate in. Plus, as the holidays come up think about what you, as a individual, can do to help out! It’s always nice to spread some holiday cheer.

Diversity

Dec 7, 2014 | Author: Gregory Spears

Stepping away from what’s going on at Utica college campus, I would like to comment on a recent article that was published in Utica College’s Tangerine newspaper. A writer was discussing the Michael Brown situation and exercising his right to freedom of speech. We must have some type of filter when we voice our opinion. I say this because we comment on certain situations and voice our opinion as if we were a witness of the Michael Brown murder.

I am voicing my concern because the writer spoke as if Michael Brown’s life didn’t matter to someone like it mattered to his parents, whether he committed a crime before he was killed or not. A police officer must use precaution and think clearly if his life is on the line when arresting someone or confronting them.

The point is, the write that wrote his piece in the Tangerine made it clear that it did not matter whether the police officer had a right to shoot Michael Brown, and he didn’t. African American’s and other individuals of different nationalities believe that the police are not there protecting them anymore; they are just protecting themselves.

But I raise the question why do people to choose to shoot first? Why not use a tazer? Do people now feel safe because of this? I wish I could go on more about this because there is so much to discuss. But, we cannot comment on a crime we did not witness. We can only comment on the statements that we hear. I say to the writer whose name I will not disclose, be aware that you were not at the scene of the crime at all, and you do not have the right to justify the killing of another human.

How to Manage Anxiety While in College

Dec 7, 2014 | Author: Allison Acquaviva

College can be an exciting but extremely stressful part of our journey into adulthood. It’s the first time that we have the power to choose where we want our lives to go. We get the chance to choose the career path that we have to be happy with for the rest of our lives! No pressure, right? Wrong. 

The more research I’ve done, the more I see that anxiety is a growing problem among young people – especially college students. Plus, I have my own personal experience with this….

Anxiety is a topic that I’ve kept quiet about, but always wanted to address. I think if more people were willing to discuss it and were willing to realize just how many people are affected, there wouldn’t be such a stigma about this.

Here’s the thing: Anxiety is so much more than just getting nervous. Anxiety is an internal life altering condition that can affect the way a person thinks, feels, and lives their life. Anxiety is also not the same thing as stress, though they are used interchangeably. Stress is caused by external circumstances, and majority of the time, it can easily be controlled or managed.

Anxiety affects millions of people every single day. It doesn’t discriminate. Research has shown that people from ages 16-25 years old are more likely to experience and suffer from anxiety due to the high demands and pressures of society. Interested in learning more? Read here.

As someone who has experienced anxiety, I know how debilitating it can be. You feel alone, misunderstood, and you constantly feel like you’re a prisoner of your own thoughts. That’s a lot to take on at such a young age!

However, I know I’m not the only one who has felt this way before. I know that there many people who choose to remain silent due to fear and judgement. I also know that I’m not one of those people anymore. So, if you’re like me and live with anxiety, I’ve compiled a list of ways to help you manage college life along with keeping your health in check.

Made with Pixlr

  1. Breathe: I know firsthand how classes, professors, assignments, projects, and presentations can completely overwhelm you. Take a few deep breaths. If you find yourself in that place of anxiousness, stop for a moment. Go somewhere quiet and take in a few deep breaths. Focusing on inhaling and exhaling sends oxygen to your brain and stops the anxiety from occurring.
  2. Watch What You Eat: While it is important to have a balanced, healthy diet, I’m not talking about food here. Watch what you feed your soul. Are you constantly digesting negativity? Are you indulging yourself in the judgments of others? If yes, stop. It’s unhealthy and will only feed your fears. Instead, surround yourself with positivity. Read positive blogs, read positive affirmations, and of course, surround yourself with positive people.
  3. Talk: One of the best ways to combat anxiety is to talk it out. Find someone you trust – whether that is a family member or close friend. Allow yourself to be vulnerable, but avoid people who are only going to use that vulnerability against you. When you confide in someone about your anxiety, be very selective. Not everyone is going to understand your journey. But, when you find that special person that you feel that you can open up to, do it. Don’t hide yourself. Be prepared though for frustrating and hurtful times on both of your parts. If the person that you talk to doesn’t have anxiety, be patient with them as they try to understand what you’re going through. Realize that it’s not easy for them to understand, but by being as straightforward as possible, you’ll help them know you a little better. Don’t be afraid to let someone see the dark side of you. If they truly love you, they won’t walk away from your friendship or relationship.
  4. Let Your Professors Know What’s Up: Anyone living with anxiety knows that some days are better than others. Some days, you’re fine, and some days, you struggle to get out of bed. Anxiety can hit you out of nowhere. If that happens, and you find yourself having to leave or miss class because of it, let your professor know what’s going on. You don’t need to go into explicit detail, but give them a heads up. You don’t want them to think that you’re merely skipping class or are just plain irresponsible. It might be embarrassing, but chances are they will understand and your grade won’t suffer because of it.
  5. Self-Care/Self-Love: This is probably the most important tip. Learning to love yourself despite your anxiety is hard. Very hard. But, it is oh so necessary. Every day, take some time out to do something you enjoy. Make time in your busy schedule for YOU. Take a walk, play with your pet, read your favorite book, listen to your favorite song, do Yoga, exercise…allow yourself to be happy.

Bottom line is that living with anxiety sucks. It sucks more when you’re in college. But there are so many ways to get help and keep your anxiety level low. Be confident. Be brave. Be bold. Be you.

Doughnut Stress

Dec 5, 2014 | Author: Courtney Hryniowski

Tuesday, December 2nd, I held my last event of the semester called “Doughnut Stress.” The main point of this event was to allow my residents to take a break from their homework and studying and enjoy some late-night sweets.

I had four types of goodies, doughnuts, Kit Kats, breath mints, and Tootsie Rolls. For each treat, I had a sheet with either facts or ways to deal with stress!

Doughnut Stress sheet had the following information -

Here are a few common indicators that you are stressed out:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Increased worrying
  • Trouble completing assignments on time
  • Not going to class
  • Short temper or increased agitation
  • Tension
  • Headaches
  • Tight muscles
  • Changes in eating habits ­- not eating at all or eating too much
  • Changes in sleeping habits

Not everyone responds the same way to potentially stressful circumstances. For example, during final exams, many students feel very overwhelmed and anxious, while others are able to keep their stress under control.

Take A Break sheet had the following information -

Ways of reducing and managing stress:

  • Time management skills
  • Goal-setting worksheet
  • Avoid procrastination
  • Exercise
  • Practice good sleep habits
  • Try mindfulness meditation
  • Limit (or eliminate) the use of stimulants like caffeine
  • Pace yourself throughout the day, taking regular breaks from work or other structured activities
  • Start a journal
  • Realize that we all have limits
  • Plan leisure activities to break up your schedule
  • Find humor in your life. Laughter can be a great tension-reducer
  • Seek the support of friends and family when you need to “vent” about situations that bring on stressful feelings
  • Try setting a specific goal for yourself that will improve your mood and help you reduce stress

Just Take a Breath; You’ll Be Okay sheet had the following information -

How Can I Eliminate Stress from My Life?

  • As we have seen, positive stress adds anticipation and excitement to life, and we all thrive under a certain amount of stress. Deadlines, competitions, confrontations, and even our frustrations and sorrows add depth and enrichment to our lives. Our goal is not to eliminate stress, but to learn how to manage it and how to use it to help us. Insufficient stress acts as a depressant and may leave us feeling bored or dejected; on the other hand, excessive stress may leave us feeling “tied up in knots.” What we need to do is find the optimal level of stress, which will individually motivate but not overwhelm each of us.

Let the Stress Roll Off Your Shoulders sheet had the following information -

Did you know?

  • 85% of students feel stressed on a daily basis
  • 77% of students feel stress over academic concerns
  • 74% of students feel stress about grades
  • 67% of students feel stress about financial worries
  • 54% of students feel stress about their families
  • 53% of students feel stress about relationships
  • 60% of students at some time have felt stress to the point of not being able to get work done
  • 70% of students have never considered talking to a counselor about their stress
  • 84% of students reach out to friends to help them with their stress
  • 67% of students reach out to parents for help with stress

The event started at 8:00pm but residents were hanging around at 7:30pm for the event to begin. It brings me a lot of joy when my residents are just as excited about the event as I am! I have so many great ideas for the Spring Semester and cannot wait to begin planning!

 

This was the flyer for my event that I hung throughout the residence halls.

Welcome Back

Dec 5, 2014 | Author: Dillan Torres

Welcome back, Utica College. I hope all had a great break, just as I did. I was able to spend time with family and friends and more. With that being said, it is now time to put ourselves back into gear and prepare ourselves for our last 2 weeks of school. There is only one week left of classes and one week of finals. This is everyone’s last chance to bring their grades up before the semester comes to an end. If anyone needs extra help, please seek it out. Utilize a professor, a tutor or even a study group. All helps and works to anyone’s advantage. If necessary, begin studying for your finals now; do not wait until the last minute. I wish everyone the best and I hope all does well on their finals.

Thanksgiving Break

Dec 5, 2014 | Author: Dillan Torres

Hello Utica College,

I hope that everyone’s Thanksgiving went very well. This was definitely a time to give thanks to everything that I am grateful for and that I wanted to give thanks for. I hope you all were able to do the same, as well as spend time with the people you love the most. I was happy to spend time with my brother, sisters, cousins and aunt. We did eat a huge feast, and we had a bunch of different desserts.

The best part aside from the food was when we all got together to play Taboo. This was definitely a very competitive time of the day, but that is what made it even more fun for us all. After that, we all decided to do some karaoke, this was another fun event that my family and I endured. We all were reminiscing and singing all types of songs. Overall, my Thanksgiving was great. I hope that all of UC was able to experience the same. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Crunch Time

Dec 5, 2014 | Author: Kenari Flowers

Greetings, all!

Now that its December, the heat is ON… Literally! We have a little time left in this semester, and it’s time to finish strong. Finals are around the corner; scratch that, they are up the street! It’s time to get those papers done, and prepare for these finals. Be aware: they are coming! Reserve your study rooms, meet with your professors, and begin planning ahead for next semester.

Don’t get overwhelmed. There’s still time to get those grades up, get focused and knock out these finals. Hopefully, you have completed your schedule for the Spring. If not contact your adviser and get your pin. Look at your the courses you want and times. If you weren’t a morning person this semester, avoid early classes; if night classes are not your friends, look at the afternoon courses. Decide what times best fit your needs, and select those courses.

Also, don’t forget to check out of your room. Unplug your electronics, clear your fridge, lock your windows, and take all valuables home. It’s almost time to go HOME (: Don’t get too excited; remember to take your time on your finals and pack all your necessities. Happy Holidays!

As always,

Football is Over

Dec 5, 2014 | Author: Juwan Wilson

So guys football is over, and man, I’m so lost without it. I don’t know what to do with all this free time. Even though I love it, I would rather be playing football; that’s my love, you know? Sorry, I just had to let that out. I really didn’t have anyone to tell that to.
