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.

Connect with Professors

Posted by Annette

An important tip that I offer to incoming college students is to establish positive relationships with your professors. It allows them to get to know you better as a student. If you are in a large class, it might be hard for your professor to connect with you.

 

A great starting point to building a relationship with your professor is by visiting their office hours, which should be stated in the first class session of the semester. Visiting office hours is beneficial because your professors can give more in-depth feedback on your course work and even provide future career advice. In my own experience, I have found the professors in my department to be very helpful in my academic and professional career.

Work With Others

Posted by Lourd Ebuen

With school comes work. With work comes stress.

 

The workload can vary from student to student, and many times, it gets hard for us to just sit and work. This is where discipline plays a key role in succeeding in school. However, disciplining yourself to work can be tough at times. So find someone to work with!

 

Working with a colleague that is interested in the same field as you can make it easier to focus and can help relieve the stress that comes from a heavy workload. It is important to work with highly motivated students because it not only motivates you to get work done, but it ultimately builds discipline and prepares you for the field you are pursuing while you learn from others.
