The Balancing Act

Posted by Lourd Ebuen

People often ask how I manage to balance three jobs and keep up with my studies. As a student assistant graphic designer, freelancer, and Disneyland parade performer, I find myself asking the same question. But I’ve realized that my jobs go hand-in-hand with my studies in graphic design at school, and they work well with my class schedule.

 

Keeping up with deadlines and distributing time between work, school, homework, and of course social life helps keep things in perspective. I am able to see how much time I actually have to complete my homework for school. Many times, I have to start on a project very early to get it done by the deadline or sometimes request time off of work to allow more time. One of the effective ways to do this is to carry an agenda to write things down. I stay organized with my day-to-day schedule and I am able to balance my time between work and school.

 

Working and going to school is definitely possible, so don’t be afraid to venture into the real world while in college!

Research Before You Apply!

Posted by Annette

The fall season is an important time for college planning. The California State University is now accepting applications for fall 2016 until November 30. If you are interested in applying, visit CSU Mentor to select the term you are applying for and fill out an application for any of the 23 campuses.

It is important to research what majors each campus offers, and campus websites and counselors are great resources to learn more about each school. Before I applied, I wanted to be sure that the campuses I was interested in offered my desired major, Communication Studies. I searched the degree programs at individual campuses and found which of the 23 campuses was the best fit for my academic path. Ultimately, I decided that CSU Long Beach, CSU Fullerton and CSU Northridge were my top three choices.

The application fee is $55.00 per campus, but in the case of financial hardships, there is a fee waiver application for California residents. I would recommend submitting your applications as soon as possible to hear back from campuses earlier.

Go Beach!

Posted by Annette

When the time came for me to transfer from community college, I knew that California State University, Long Beach was my number one choice. After a bit of research, I found that CSULB had a respected Communication Studies program that was the perfect fit for me. That said, I made my studies a priority so that I would be accepted into CSULB.

Eventually, I was accepted into CSULB’s Communication Studies major and I was ecstatic. I remember calling my mom right away after I received the email and writing a very exciting Facebook post to share with my friends and family. Throughout my time at CSULB, I have made many new friends, established great relationships with the faculty in my department and grown as a person overall.

California State University, Long Beach is one of the larger campuses in the CSU system and has a variety of majors to choose from. There is always something going on, whether it be Week of Welcome for new students, a sporting event or other activities put on by Associated Students Inc. (ASI). There are many opportunities to get involved on campus, such as clubs, intramural sports and the Greek System. As a graduating senior, I am sad that my experience at CSULB is coming to an end. I would encourage all aspiring college students to check out CSULB. Go Beach!
