Dude Where’s my Classes?

When your child enters a college or university, it will be so different than high school, no more bell sounds, the students will be all over in the hallways bumping into you, and they have to carry fifteen pounds of books on their back! I hope they have medical insurance for a chiropractor! It will be a different world when they enter.

First, they need a map of the campus to find all of the buildings they need to go for their classes. Most of the time they will spend their lives in the library, that’s the place to do homework. The dorm room is a place to sleep and do more homework.

Classes may be in different buildings or the other side of the campus. I hope they have the gym shoes, it’s time for the shoes to do some walking and it is the best time to do some cardio too.

Here’s a tip, try to have your classes nearby to other buildings, so you don’t have to rush or run to classes, and be late.  A possible a hand-written excuse from your professors to give? No. Don’t be late to classes.

Back in high school, they used to get up early for their eight o’clock classes or earlier for activities before classes.

Try to arrange your classes between 10:00 am through 2:30 pm, that means you still have to get up in the morning. Do you really want to get up five o’clock in the morning or before sunrise or see an apparition in your room that wasn’t supposed to be there? Your room is haunted!  You are up anyway, might as well get ready and finished that homework assignment. And eat breakfast.  And try to schedule any activities in the afternoon or evenings.  If a class is overbooked in the morning, don’t worry you won’t be dragged across the floor just schedule another time when it is available, if they have a midnight class, take it.

If you have a gap between classes don’t just sit there and do nothing or meditate, you might fall asleep on the couch or someone’s lap – that would be awkward if she’s attractive get her phone number.

Highlight the materials or rewrite your notes, in cursive to get a better understanding and prepared for the next class. Um, you all know that cursive is required in writing notes in class. Do you? Oh well.

Organize your backpack, have your notebook and books in order of class schedule times. Don’t leave your cell phone out; there’s a clock in the room, remember there is no class bell only your professor will excuse you.

Make sure you have the University app on your phone, this will alert you if there’s an emergency that the school has to close down due to weather.  Check your campus email. Check your assignment online too; there’s no excuse that your assignment will be late anymore. All of the assignments will be scan and monitor through online – that’s right your papers will be scanned for plagiarisms, even I don’t like it. I write well. However, the professor doesn’t read the papers anymore.

Labor Day and Back to Work

So how’s was your labor day? Did you do any labor on Labor Day? Work is work and we need to get it done.

Anyway, you may know that school and universities were open a few weeks ago and they will learn new things and make friendship too.

Are the, teachers, college instructors, and universities professors ready for students to learn new things? Maybe?

For parents, please tell your children to learn and have fun. Making friends are crucial for the adolescent of children especially when they are growing up. But make sure it’s the right person when they bring home a new friend to be friends with. It’s like a date, but different, they have to find something common of what they like and dislike. If they are in the same classroom, make sure they are studying together and make good grades. Math and science are important for the children education, if they make good grades in math and science throughout the middle school and high school, it would be easier for them when they are off to college and universities and they have to take general courses and then their major of interest. So make them study.

For students who seniors in high school and getting ready to graduate at the end of the school year, they have been slacking off for the past two years of high school. It would be difficult to catch up and graduate with their classmates.

They have to work hard; they have to create a schedule for homework, school activities, prom, and a job. Students can take a break if they have good grades.

For teachers, college instructors, professors at universities and teacher of the year, please make your classroom entertaining to learn. Not the boring lecturing type. Do you want your students to fall asleep in classroom or take selfies the whole time while the instructors are lecturing? It’s time for an upgrade and change. Students are more active, if their instructors make learning fun, games like Who’s Wants to be Millionaire, Jeopardy and other popular game shows. Make learning fun. It’s great for College and universities students too. If they have cell phones make it part in their education. Make a deal with the students. Students like to be challenge, if not they will take more selfies of themselves. Try it and see how it works. Don’t be boring.
