Group active since Wed, Jul 06, 2011


Are you working on a degree or certification in college or online? Are you thinking about going to college or even going back to college to finish a degree?
Please join this group and share your hardworking and challenging times and just what helps you get through each semester. What are you eating on those class filled days? Maybe we can share some recipes for on the go "school days" and stress relieving foods. (Chocolate has to one of them!) lol
Are you taking a break for summer and are you already signed up for fall?
Hopefully, we can encourage one another as we journey together reaching our goals or even just learning something new.


 

Hello college students, how are classes going? Are you feeling a little burnt out and looking forward to summer vacation?

Happy "Fat Tuesday"! Whose had their Paczki today?

I stopped at a local bakery to pick up my pre-ordered Paczki's and had some breakfast with a friend. I had a Warsaw Omelet and my friend Laura had a egg & cheese bagel sandwich along with a shot of Polish vodka for breakfast. We both had Paczki...mine was a custard filled and she got a plain one that was sugar coated. ---- Then, I was off delivering Packzi to my husband for his co-workers, took a dozen to my veterinarians office and a dozen to our groomers...of course I had to let them know Paczki (our male Schnoodle) was who requested they get some "REAL" Packzi. Everyone was excited and hopefully enjoyed their donuts too. Here is a recipe to make some homemade Paczki which is a little lighter of a recipe for these donuts. As when you make these when they are frying up become hollow inside and very easy to fill. The one's we had today were heavier but still just as delicious! Paczki - Famous Polish Donuts

How are your classes going? I thought I would share some study tips that I found.

Study Tips

Take advantage of office hours. They are there for a reason. It's your chance to get one-on-one help from a highly qualified teacher. If you are struggling in class, there is no reason why you shouldn't be going to your teacher's office hours.
Don't fall behind. Don't procrastinate. College school work is very fast paced and it's very difficult to catch back up.
Use a study group rather than a late-night cram session.
Make sure you find yourself a nice study environment. Dorm rooms are not an ideal place to clearly focus on your studies.
If things get loud, use ear plugs.
Learn the material the very first time it’s presented rather than having to cram every time there is a test.
Finals week will be hell, make sure you are prepared.
The best test preparation is a good night of sleep and a good breakfast.
Stay organized and manage your time efficiently.
Keep good class notes. Use web 2.0 note taking tools if you need to.
Actually read the textbook. You bought and paid for it, so read it. This is usually the material that is on the exams.
Don't cheat on your exams. This is a very serious offense in college.
Have a good laptop. It's pretty much a necessity in college nowadays.
Set clear goals for each class.
Keep a to-do list of assignments and other projects.
Prepare for college-level work. The amount of writing and reading required can be overbearing.
Sit towards the front of the class. It will improve your grade, encourage interaction and your standing/recognition with the professor.
Ask questions in class. Or, provide input in ongoing class lectures.
Use the library. It's full of useful resources.
Don't cite Wikipedia in your research papers.


My sweet Schnoodle Doodles send their wishes for a Merry Christmas to you all!
