An Embarassing Mistake

Posted by Tanya

You would think that the older you get and reach higher grade levels, the more you would know. Like in high school, you feel at the bottom of the food chain your freshman year but once you get to senior year, you are on top of the world and you feel like you know it all. It is moments like these that I am about to share with you to remind you to stay grounded and learn to laugh away the embarrassment of situations.

 

After finishing three years at CSU Channel Islands I was entering into my senior year. I knew so much about my university since I was really involved and also worked on campus. It was the first day of class and it didn’t start until 12PM so I got to sleep in. Walking to my class well rested, I checked the sheets they posted during the first couple weeks of school to make sure I had the correct class number to go with my class title. As I get to class I greet the professor and start having a friendly conversation since I knew her and had a couple classes with her before. I sat in the very front row of a long skinny class room and feel right at home talking to friends sitting nearby. As we start class and she takes role, she gets to the end and notices that my name is not on her role sheet. I am surprised since I know I was in a class called Cultural Conversations. A girl sitting nearby let me borrow her laptop and when I logged in to see my schedule my heart stopped… I was enrolled in a Cultural Conversations class, but it was at an earlier time and with a completely different teacher. As the whole class listened, I explained that I had made a mistake and was in the wrong class and had to take the long walk out of the classroom. The fact that everyone was staring seemed to make the walk even longer. I was embarrassed but quickly laughed it off becuase I had walked away learning a lesson that was far more valuable. It doesn’t matter how long you have been doing something, you are always learning new things. Next time I will pay closer attention to my schedule. Keep up with a sense of humor and remember… it isn’t the end of the world when you make a mistake.

The Start and the End

Posted by Marilu

Fall semester started so soon where did the summer go. This marks the beginning of my last year as an undergrad. Time flew I recall the moment I moved into the dorms and how scared I felt to start a new chapter in my life. Four years later Turlock became my second home where I created long lasting friendships and unforgettable memories. Even though the end is coming in a couple of months. I know that it will be the start to my graduate education and a new chapter ready to be written.

 

Anyways, enough of that. I’m excited to what is to come this semester. I look forward to my classes and the various on-campus and sorority events. Rush started last week and it’s gone great so I look forward to this coming week.

 

For all of you, good luck this semester. I hope it’s a good one.

Senior Year Opportunities: Dont Waste Your Time

Posted by Arzoo

Senior year can be one of the most stressful but memorable times of our lives. From applying to different colleges, maintaining high grades to senior events, it is one hectic year. Utilizing our time to organize and refresh ourselves can be achieved through breaks such as winter or spring breaks. This is a time where you can think about organizing your summer into a productive one. You can look for different volunteering opportunities around your community. Or use this time as an opportunity to look into the different clubs, organizations or sororities you plan on joining. Extra time like these breaks can help balance out the stress, so use your time wisely.
