I am Finally Going Home Today! (Break Bus)

Nov 25, 2014 | Author: Brittany Sierra

I am so excited to go home today! I have not seen my family since I started this semester, so going home feels bittersweet to me. I’m looking forward to eating a home-cooked meal! ESPECIALLY ON THANKSGIVING! I get hungry just thinking about it! I kind of wish the break was a little longer. I leave today around 3:30-4:00pm on the Break Bus! I will keep you posted on how the rest of the week will go!

This Weekend

Nov 25, 2014 | Author: Nayary Rosario

Most of us enjoy watching our football team play. I know I do. This past weekend, many of us were able to attend the game, which was held at Morrisville State College; our school rented a bus for all students who wanted to attend the game but did not have a ride. The weather was a little on the bad side because, unfortunately, it started to rain. Watching the game overall was so much fun because our school was so excited, and everyone cheered and supported our school. Even though we did lose, we still had a good game, and everyone enjoyed it. Overall, it was a great season and we won many, like the game against Buffalo State.

Apart from that, I later went out to celebrate one of my friend’s birthday at Red Lobster. I enjoyed it very much, and the best part was the desert: a brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It was AMAZING!

Frozen Dome

Nov 25, 2014 | Author: Elaine Paravati

This past Saturday was the Frozen Dome Classic at the Syracuse Carrier Dome in Syracuse, NY. As a Utica College student, I scored a ticket to the festivities for just $10 at Student Activities. My boyfriend and I headed to the Dome around 2 p.m. and met up with friends before the Utica College Men’s Hockey team played against SUNY Oswego at 3 p.m. It was a great game, ending in overtime, and eventually, a tie.

Karita, Laura, and I at the Frozen Dome Classic!

There was a break between the UC/Oswego game and the big game of the day- the AHL Syracuse Crunch vs Utica Comets game. During the break, we explored the Dome, checked out some AHL gear on display, met some mascots, and even won prizes!

Karita LOVED meeting the mascots. It was hard to get her to leave them in order to get back to our seats for the game!

At 7 p.m., it was finally time for the big game. Although the Utica Comets lost to the Syracuse Crunch 2-1, it was still an awesome experience because we made history; we broke the record for the largest crowd for an indoor American professional hockey game, clocking 30,715 people in attendance.

Even though we lost, it was an awesome atmosphere and a great experience. I loved being a part of the Utica College student section and cheering for Utica College and the Utica Comets with my friends. The Frozen Dome Classic was a unique way to spend my Saturday and was definitely an experience I won’t forget!

Why It’s Okay To Be Selfish in College

“I’m so busy. I’m so stressed out.”

If I had a penny for every time I thought or said that, I would have enough money to take that Disney (or Hawaiian) vacation that I so desperately need!

Between classes, homework, writing for The Tangerine, blogging, and other obligations, I sometimes feel as if my world is going to cave in! Yikes!

I never realized how bad my stress level was until I went to my doctor and she pointed it out to me. Oy! This year, my stress level has been at an all-time high, and I found myself adding MORE stress to combat the other stress. Silly right? I threw myself into everything & anything that I could, and seriously compromised my health because of it. I guess it’s not normal to be stressed, anxious, tired and irritable all the time. Who knew?

My experience with stress and anxiety in college really inspired me to write this post. It got me thinking about how the world and society holds such high expectations for us. The world forces us to put our own health on the back burner. We are always pressured to do more, work more, BE more. We think that adding more stuff to our ever-growing mountain of stress will distract us. Wrong.  

It’s NOT natural!

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a wonderful thing to be goal-oriented and have fantastic work ethic – in fact, employers love that! But, there’s something very wrong with living by a weekly planner, living on caffeine, and doing your best work under pressure.

Here’s the thing: We’ve conditioned ourselves for stress. We fear that we would be “selfish” for taking a mental health day. Ultimately, we ignore our own happiness and health, and squeeze in something else into our tight little schedules.

Now that the end of the semester is near, are you finding yourself completely overwhelmed? Do you say yes to multiple things that you have no time for? Is your brain on overload? I could sum this up with one piece of advice: SLOW DOWN! But, that wouldn’t be helpful would it? No. So, here are some tips on how to be less stressed, less anxious, happier & healthier.

1) Look at how you begin your day: We have all heard our mothers say these famous words: “Eat your breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day.”  Mother truly knows best! Do you skip breakfast because you’re in such a rush? Stop. That’s self-punishing. Keep some ready-to-go food in the kitchen. Fruit, bagels, muffins, etc, are better than nothing. Feed your body & brain.

2) Unlearn self-punishment and embrace self-love: Often, we get so caught up in our work and goals that we punish ourselves for not reaching them, or for simply making mistakes along the way. We look at ourselves as failures if we didn’t achieve that “A” we worked so hard for. We need to learn to cut ourselves a break. Be low-maintenance and accept that you’re human.

3) Find relaxation techniques: When stress begins to consume me, I try to do something for myself that will make my soul happy. That includes writing in my journal, playing with my dog, drinking hot tea, or even just listening to music. Relaxation is a must. Overwhelmed with your responsibilities? Take small breaks, do some yoga, do a little self pampering, eat healthy snacks, or even wear your favorite color to class.

Believe it or not, little things like that can make a world of difference to your mood and mind. Taking care of ourselves is not selfish; It’s a priority. To be successful, we need to be healthy and relaxed.

Winter is Coming

Nov 20, 2014 | Author: Gregory Spears

With the weather changing, students on campus have already talked amongst each other about what boots they will purchase and how big their coats will be this winter. The reason for this is that, every morning during the spring semester, Utica College students pray that their morning classes will be cancelled, or at least rescheduled for a different time.

It has been said that it doesn’t matter if we got hit with 9 feet of snow like Buffalo did this week; Utica College still will not cancel classes. They might cancel night classes, but day classes would still be in session. Students have complained about this for some time now. The wind chill could be in the negatives, and we would still get an email telling students to bundle up!

Why is that? Students should take that into consideration that the school is very focused on our scholastics, and don’t want to cancel classes unless the winter weather is brutal. If the professors can make it to class in their commutes, then we can still make that five-minute walk to class. Winter is coming, and Utica College students should start preparing for it right now.

Thanksgiving is Approaching & I’m Excited

Nov 20, 2014 | Author: Brittany Sierra

Thanksgiving is a great time to be around family and friends,but it’s an especially great time to give thanks for all of the blessings that you have. I personally cannot wait for Thanksgiving. I have not seen my family in three months, so this will be a good one. I’m excited to finally eat a home-cooked meal! But I would like to remind everyone that there are people out there that will not have anything to eat, anywhere to go or even have family to be with. Remember when saying your prayers before your big meal to mention those people who will not be so lucky this year. :(

Did You Take Back Your Prom?

Nov 20, 2014 | Author: Courtney Hryniowski

Friday, Nov. 14 was Take Back Your Prom, hosted by Utica College’s Gay/Straight Alliance and Utica College’s Programming Board. It was from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. at Valentino’s Banquet Hall in New Hartford. We were able to provide our guests with a variety of finger foods, a candy bar, photo booth, mock prom photos, souvenirs, and cash bar with an open bar special!

We had over 240 people in attendance, which was spectacular! The dance floor was packed and there was a line for the photo booth from the beginning to the end of the event. I am really happy to be a part of an organization that hosted such a successful event!

GSA and UCPB really wanted to have this event for the individuals who did not enjoy their prom. This gave them the opportunity for a redo! Some individuals didn’t like their prom maybe because of something that happened, the lack of entertainment, food wasn’t good or they were not able to go with the person that they really wanted to, especially members of the LGBT community.

In high school, I attended several proms but there was something so much more exciting about this one. I think it was because, in high school, there is so much more to worry about… just normal high school things such as who is wearing what, who is getting a limo or a party bus, etc. This prom gave me the opportunity to get dressed up (which I LOVE to do) and enjoy a carefree night of food, dancing, and photos with my close friends here at Utica College.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the night:

Preparing for Exams

Nov 19, 2014 | Author: Benjamin Mehic

via Cooltext.com

via Cooltext.com

Preparing for exams is probably the most stressful part of being a college student. Even if you attend class regularly, do well on quizzes and homework, it’s still hard to feel prepared.

Here are a few ways to prepare for an exam so that you feel confident during test day:

Review class material regularly

Cramming study time in the day before an exam is probably the worst way to review class material. Instead of putting an unnecessary amount of pressure on yourself the day before the exam, just take the time to review class material every day leading up to an exam.

If you review the material, chances are you’ll follow along during lectures, and the material will become a lot easier to learn and remember. So, once exam day does come, everything will look familiar, and you’ll feel prepared to ace the exam.

It might seem like extra work, but reviewing material on a regular basis is necessary.

The truth is that even in your last year of college, the announcement of a test, exam, final, or quiz (the most jarring of all), is disconcerting for slackers and committed students alike. If a test is looming in your future, whether it is two weeks or two hours before, you can take control of the outcome by using the right study strategies. –via Scholarships.com

Take advantage of resources

Utica College has plenty of resources available for you to feel prepared on exam day. If you’re struggling with math, make an appointment at the Math and Science Center. The same could apply for an upcoming essay or English exam.

Don’t wait until last minute, though, as it could be too late for you to find help. If you feel like you’re going to have trouble with a specific topic, get it resolved right away. The sooner you get prepared, the better.

Final exams are right around the corner. Taking advantage of the helpful resources is key if you’re having trouble.

The End is Near…

Nov 19, 2014 | Author: Elaine Paravati

This time of year can be hectic for many reasons. With Thanksgiving break less than a week away and the holidays around the corner, family plans can definitely start to fill up your time. But before you can enjoy the time off, there are final exams, term papers, group projects, and presentations that need to be done. Add in all of the last-minute prepping to leave the residence halls for winter break, and you’re bound to be a little overwhelmed!

While the last few weeks of the semester are always a little crazy, I find these things really help me stay focused and power through the end of the year:

  • Make sure you’re getting enough sleep. With a million homework assignments to complete, sleep is usually the last priority- but you will be way more efficient with your work if you take a nap or head to bed a little earlier. Turn off your iPhone and sleep already!
  • Write a final exam checklist. List each class you are taking, the day and time of the final, and all of the assignments and tests due before then. It feels great to check things off your list and know that you’re just a few papers away from winter break!
  • Read over Thanksgiving break! Use the days you have off from classes to spend time with family and friends, and definitely relax a little. But don’t completely disconnect from school, or else you’ll be in shock when you return to campus and only have 6 class days before finals! Catch up on your textbook reading over break, and even get ahead if you can, so that you are ready to crush your finals when you come back.
  • Listen to festive music. When I shower in the morning, I listen to Christmas music. It reminds me of all of the fun I will be having with my family in a few short weeks, and keeps me optimistic! Watch a holiday classic on TV during your study break or listen to music that makes you happy. It will serve as encouragement for you to keep working hard in order to make it to the holidays.
  • Drink lots of water or tea. Stay hydrated and stay warm with a nice thermos of herbal tea. It will help your immune system fight off winter bugs and will help you stay awake during study sessions.
  • Keep it in perspective. As I have written about many times before, the importance of keeping a positive outlook is imperative to success. Remember how fortunate you are to have the opportunity to be in school, and remind yourself of all of the good things in your life. When times get tough, think of all of the things you have to be grateful for, and it’s likely your stressors will seem less important after all.

Good luck with the end of the semester. You can do it!

National Society of Leadership and Success

Nov 19, 2014 | Author: Tessa Lamper

About a month ago, I received an email that read…

“Dear Tessa,

Congratulations!  In approximately one week, via US Postal Mail, we will send you a formal invitation to join the Utica College chapter of The National Society of Leadership and Success, Sigma Alpha Pi…”IMG_1215

I was a bit confused, as were many of my peers that also received the invitation. I decided to go to the first informational meeting about Sigma Alpha Pi and learned a lot about the organization…including the fact that this is the first time it is has become recognized at Utica College. Now that it is recognized at Utica College, I am sure many other students are curious about it, so I thought I would inform you guys because it is a great opportunity and we will be hosting events in the future!

The Society is invitation only and “gives you access to leadership certification that is a valuable addition to your professional resume and a life changing personal development tool” (Society Leadership). The organization is nationally recognized and is based off of academic accomplishment and leadership. To be inducted you must be invited by your chapter advisor (Bethany A. Piraino at Utica College) and fill out the online application. This will make you a pre-inducted member and from there you must complete 12 hours of leadership training. Then you will be inducted through a ceremony. Some benefits of NSLS are

improved self-esteem, peer leadership skills, motivation and drive, paradigms that will help you discover and achieve your dreams, real world skills that will help you outperform your peers in the workplace, online resources on our website, customized letters of recommendation for prospective employers or graduate schools, graduation accessories that you may purchase and wear at your graduation to display your membership in our organization, access to exclusive scholarships and awards, Success Coaches and our entire Keynote speaker series” (Society Leadership)

So far I have been invited and filled out my application form, but because the chapter has just become recognized at Utica College, I will be unable to do my leadership training until next semester. I am very excited to do so and become a true member!

Our first event will be a Study Social for members and nonmembers on Tuesday, December 9th 2014, from 1:00- 3:30 at the Pioneer Pub. There will be free power study foods and a chance to meet the members of NSLS.

Ebola Awareness

Nov 18, 2014 | Author: Dillan Torres

There seems to be a lot of spoken word on the subject of the Ebola virus. Everyone seems to be afraid of this virus due to the outbreak that has taken place in the U.S. What some may not realize or know is that this is a virus that has been here for many years and did not just appear from the blue. Would you like to know the who, what, when, where, and why of Ebola?

How Was Your Weekend?

Nov 18, 2014 | Author: Nayary Rosario

This weekend for me had both its good and bad sides to it. Sadly, I had a lot of studying to do for my biology lab class. I had to learn all the cat muscles that I dissected, and all human muscles of the leg, arm, abdominal, chest, and head. It was really stressful to memorize so many names and know where each of those muscles belong. Overall, I was proud of myself because I was able to memorize it all and ended up helping others. Some good techniques I would recommend anybody else taking biology lab 101 would be to take videos of the muscle and point them out while saying their names, and on your free time, watch those videos. Trust me it will help you a lot.

On the other hand, Saturday night was really fun. I attended the Fuerza Latina Talent Show. There was so many people there that some were not able to get in the auditorium. We had performances from Albany and SUNYIT. A group of dancers were from Albany, and the group from SUNYIT rapped. The talent show was suppose to end  at 9:30 p.m., but it actually ended at 11p.m. It was a long night for all of us that attended, and a very enjoyable one too. My favorite act was the step team, just like last time when they performed at the A.I.M. showcase, They were my favorite, and they still are.

Take Back Your Prom 2014

Nov 18, 2014 | Author: Elaine Paravati

Last Friday, the Utica College Gay-Straight Alliance and the Utica College Programming Board teamed up to host “Take Back Your Prom.”

The very handsome Elliot and I at prom! Elliot is a member of both the UCGSA and UCPB, so while he was working for both of those orgs, he was also workin' a great bow tie.

The very handsome Elliot and I at prom! Elliot is a member of both the UCGSA and UCPB- while he was working at the event on behalf of those organizations, he was also workin’ a great bow tie.

The event was held at a local banquet hall named Valentino’s from 8 until midnight, and transportation was provided to and from the event. There was a photo booth, a candy bar, appetizers, a DJ and dance floor, and even an area where students could have cheesy staged prom pictures taken. Best of all, admission was totally free for UC students!

“Take Back Your Prom” is a pretty popular event on other campuses, so the UC GSA was really excited to host our own here. The idea is to allow students the opportunity to reclaim their prom how they wanted it to be the first time around. Often, students wear different outfits or take different people, since they now feel more comfortable, accepted, and safe than when they were in high school.

My best friend Sarah and I were really excited to have an occasion to wear fluffly, sparkly dresses!

The UC students who attended the event (over 240!) said it was “the prom they always wanted,” which really attests to what a strong, accepting community we have at Utica College. As the Vice President of the UCGSA, I felt so great to have been a part of the organization that threw such a successful event. It was an honor to have helped students make the prom memories they deserved – and a night of dancing and sparkles is always a great time!

Tips For Buying Textbooks

Nov 17, 2014 | Author: Benjamin Mehic

via cooltext.com

via cooltext.com

Believe it or not, we’re less than a month away from the completion of the Fall semester, meaning that you’re going to have to start preparing for the upcoming semester.

Most, if not all, students have already begun to register for classes. With that said, the time for purchasing textbooks is almost here. For most of us, that time isn’t necessarily pleasant, especially when considering the cost.

College students spend an average of $655 per year on textbooks, according to the National Association of College Stores. Even though this figure is down from two and four years ago – from $667 and $702, respectively – it’s still a lot of money… - via U.S. News

To avoid spending more money than necessary on textbooks, here’s a few tips on how to save a few bucks for this upcoming semester:

Compare new textbook prices to used online

This might seem like common sense, but it’s still surprising how many students purchase their textbooks without searching for other sources online.

Sites like Amazon.com have become popular from listing cheap college textbooks, so take advantage of it! Be careful though, as some textbooks have been listed at much higher prices than they should’ve been online, so it’s always good to compare the price to the college bookstore.

Utica College bookstore information could be found here.

Share books, look for alternatives

If you have any friends that attend the same school as you, chances are that they have taken a few of the same courses, especially if it’s core.

Check with your friends to see if they have any old textbooks that could help you for the upcoming semester. In return, check to see if you have any textbooks that could help them.

Also, digital textbooks are a lot cheaper, so that could serve as an alternative. They’re usually available on any E-Reader or Tablet, and if you’re the type to use your electronics anyways, it might be a good idea to purchase an E-Book.

Pie A BOND Member

Nov 17, 2014 | Author: Gregory Spears

Today was BOND’s annual “Pie a BOND Member,” and if you could tell by the slippery floors in front of the cafeteria it was very successful! From BOND’s President Jabarie Broomes to Vice President Karl Simpson, the brothers on BOND were certainly on a new direction.

The purpose of “Pie a BOND Member” is to raise money for the org. But with the participation of the students and even some custodial staff, the brothers quickly realized it was no longer about the money; it was more to have fun and put a laugh on students’ and faculty’s faces. BOND has been putting on small events throughout the month of November, like today leading into their event FALL MADNESS, this Saturday, November 22nd in the Strebel Auditorium. Be on the lookout for more events being brought to you by the brothers from BOND and in collaboration with other organization across campus!

Fuerza Latina Talent Show – Prestige

Nov 17, 2014 | Author: Dillan Torres

Hello All,

I hope everyone had a great weekend, just as I did. As we all know, the Fuerza Latina Talent show was this weekend, and after attending, I had to take a minute of my time to blog about it.

For starters, the house was packed. I haven’t seen the Strebel Auditorium that packed since my freshman year of the LASU Talent Show. With that being said, I want to take time out to commend Fuerza Latina for doing their thing and putting on an awesome talent show. They were able to find great acts from all throughout New York state that did an awesome job, and the competition was very steep.

It was very interesting to see the different acts and who was going to win. I would like to congratulate all the acts that placed and Prestige for winning first place. Everyone’s hard work and dedication definitely paid off in the end and showed the UC campus a great time. Keep up the great work Fuerza Latina, very proud of you all.

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2014

Nov 16, 2014 | Author: Cisse Yousouf

Thanksgiving is upon us again. That reminds me of the annual Thanksgiving Day Parade. Growing up, I used to go every year. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a celebrated New York tradition. For people attending the Parade, here are some tips:

1. See the balloons being blown up.

It is far less crowded, and you have a much better chance of seeing the balloons up close by attending the free viewing of the famous big balloon inflation.

2. Get up very early, and dress in layers.

The Parade begins at 9 a.m., but approximately 3.5 million parade-goers take to the streets wanting the perfect view. Plan to arrive to claim your spot along the parade route by 6 a.m., and don’t think of moving from that spot. Pack a bag with snacks, a thermos of hot chocolate, and games or books to keep your kids entertained while waiting for the parade to begin. And remember that NYC wind can have quite the bite, so dress warmly in layers.

3. Know the Parade route.

There are three recommended stretches or spots on the route for watching the parade:
– The first leg along Central Park West
– Time Warner Center
– Sixth Avenue between Central Park South and 38th Street.

4. Find and book a reservation at NYC restaurant nearby for lunch.

Once the Parade ends, 3.5 million people are pushing their way to subways and out of the areas closed off to traffic to try to hail taxis. Instead of joining the stampede, find a nearby restaurant that is open on Thanksgiving and make a reservation for lunch. You can wait out the crowds while warming up over a hot meal.
