Back-to-School Tips

Posted by Jade

Where has the summer gone? It seems like just yesterday we began our much awaited break. Fast forward a couple of months and it’s time to begin another school year! So here are some helpful tips in order for you to have a successful year!

 

  1. Don’t just start with a positive attitude, keep that attitude throughout the year; it’s helpful to your friends and teachers. You’ll be more efficient and the year will seem to fly by. Positivity will also help with getting all your work done.
  2. Stay organized. School can be frustrating when you’re getting a lot of work, so it’s best to keep everything organized. For example, having a separate binder for each class will make life a lot easier.
  3. Join a club or after school activity! This is a time in your life to figure out what kinds of things interest you…so get involved and see what sparks, or ignites a passion in you!
  4. Come up with a plan/schedule to help you manage your time after school. Prioritize academics, athletics, family time, social time, etc., and devote a specific amount of time to any of these things that are important to you.

 

Last tip: Work hard, play hard! HAVE FUN!

Let’s Go Team!

Posted by Shannon Steichen

Before heading off to college, the number one piece of advice you will receive is to get involved. Students have so many options to choose from when first arriving on campus and for me, becoming a supporter of San Diego State’s many athletic teams ended up being the best fit.

“The Show”, the name of SDSU’s student section, has become a close-knit group of friends that enjoys attending as many sports events as possible. Feeling the energy swell up from the crowd, onto the court, and into our players during a neck-to-neck basketball game is indescribable. The students know that they have not only helped the team snatch the victory, but also played a major part in positively representing our school.

I highly recommend going to as many sporting events as possible when getting involved in school.

Study Abroad!

Posted by Annette

Studying abroad has always interested me because many friends and family members who studied abroad had nothing but great things to say about their time spent around the world. During my first semester at Cal State Long Beach, I noticed that one of my upper division electives was offered in Florence, Italy as a summer course. Most students choose to study abroad for a semester or a full academic year, but some universities also offer winter and summer courses. I made the decision to sign up for the course and before I knew it, I was on a plane to Italy.

Studying while immersing yourself in a new culture is a great opportunity to further your education. At first, it can be a bit intimidating to be in an environment where you are not familiar with the language and customs, but it becomes easier once you adjust. I am extremely grateful to have been given the opportunity to study abroad; it allowed me to see amazing sights, make new friends and create memories of a lifetime. If you are interested in studying outside the United States, explore the international programs available at the CSU campuses to see what courses they offer abroad.
