School is Cool

Hey Cavs!

I got to thinking and realized that I write about all of the awesome social events that Walsh has going on all of the time, but I have never really talked about the academic side of Walsh. This is a shame because Walsh has some really great, strong academic programs that should never be forgotten about. So first, I apologize, and second, I wanted to write a little bit about my academic experiences here at Walsh in my past four years.

Did you know, Walsh offers 60 different undergraduate majors? In case you didn’t know, I am double majoring in Adolescent Young Adult Math Education and Mathematics. Basically, I am studying to be a high school math teacher, and I’ll be able to teacher anywhere from seventh to twelfth grade. (Gross! Wow! Are you crazy? – Are some of the typical responses I get when I tell people! haha) About to be starting my last semester here, I have loved everything about it!

Walsh is a liberal arts school, so on top of taking my regular education and math classes, I have also had the opportunity to take different courses such as theology, music, history, philosophy, sociology, and economics. The way I planned out my four years, I typically had one or two courses outside my major every semester. I wanted it to work out that way because I liked to have a nice break from my math and education courses all of the time. My outside classes were a nice change of pace. I mean as much as I love math, when I sit through three different math classes in one day, I’m about ready for something new.

The second theology course that I took at Walsh has probably been one of my favorites; it was called Catholic Beliefs in Practice, but about only half the students were even Catholic. The course studied why Catholics believe what they do and what are some different ways to practice the Catholic faith. However, the best part about this class was that we then compared the Catholic religion to some other religions as well. One day we even took a trip to the Protestant church nearby to talk with the pastor; we had the opportunity to learn about their faith and ask any questions that we may have had. Personally, I felt the course was very beneficial for my spiritual life because I was able to use some of the different forms of prayer that we learned about and discussed, and some of them I still use today!

So I really enjoyed taking a wide variety of different classes, but don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed my math and education classes the most! One of the best things about Walsh’s education program, I feel, is that every education course you take requires some amount of observation or teaching hours in the classroom. That means that since my very first semester here I have been in the classroom gaining experience either observing students, tutoring, or teaching lessons. As I am finishing up my pre-student teaching semester this fall, I could not feel more prepared for my student teaching in the spring! I have had so many hours of experience at so many different schools and grade levels, that I really feel like I am prepared to be a teacher and take over my own classroom. For my student teaching, I have been place at Wadsworth High School. I will be teaching 3 Honors Pre-Calculus classes, 2 AP Calculus classes, and co-teaching 1 AP Statistics class. Talk about a lot of math! But even with all of that, I don’t think I could be any more excited than I am!

Stay strong in your studies, Cavs, and keep moving forward!

Better Late than Never!

Hey Cavs!

So I am a little belated, but Happy Halloween! I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday! I did not get around to posting last week because it was a crazy week full of awesome activities.

The Education Club, along with Residence Life and RHA (Residence Hall Association) hosted their annual Halloween Event and Trick-or-Treat through the dorms this past Wednesday. Once again, the event was a hit! We had close to 800 people register for the event this year! It was amazing! Starting around 6, the Education Club planned activities, crafts, and games for children and their families to do in the Barrette Center. There were mummy crafts and make-your-own ghost pop, coloring stations and candy corn guessing jars, and face painting! The kids had a ton of fun boppin’ around in their costumes.

Then at 7, RHA began to take groups of children and families through the dorms. All of the Walsh students decorated the hallways and passed out candy from their dorm rooms. I got to talk to one faculty member who took her kids around the dorms this year, and she had nothing but good things to say. She was really impressed with all of the decorations in the hallway, and thought it was so cool how many students went out of their way to buy candy to pass out to the kids. It really goes to show you how thoughtful all of the students are here.

The Halloween event has always been a favorite event for the Walsh students and local community, and their year did not fail to please. I am definitely going to miss being part of it next year.

But before I get too sappy, I carved my first pumpkin EVER last week, too! One event that my RA held last week was a community builder, pumpkin carving night! All of the tools I needed, even the pumpkin, were supplied, and I had never carved one before, so I thought I’d give it a whack! It was a fun (and cost free, I might add) way for me to take a break from my studies and let my creative juices flow. Although being a mathematics major, as you can see in my picture below, it is a little hard to get math out of my head even when I’m trying to take a break from it!

P.S. The answer is x^3 + C. I know you were dying to find out ;)

Halloween is always a fun time to dress up and eat some sweets, but now we are quickly moving into the holiday season, and I am not going to complain! This semester has been flying by, (I cannot believe it is already November) and before we know it, Thanksgiving break will be here and finals are the following week!

Remember to take time to enjoy every minute! Have a great week Cavs!

Interviews!

Hey Cavs!

So it’s that time of year in Campus Ambassadors when my co-worker and I get to interview new candidates that want to be Ambassadors.  My past two weeks have been really busy because every free minute that I am not in class or at work, I am interviewing people.  We interviewed close to 50 potential candidates this year!

After interviewing 50 people, I have definitely seen some of the best and some of the worst interviews.  Interviews are difficult for both the candidate and the employer because interviewing is a skill that needs to be practiced, but very little do;  just because someone does not do well in an interview, does not mean that they are not qualified for the job (or vice versa) but sometimes only one 30 or 60 minute interview is all the employer has to make a decision.  Therefore, it is important to do well, which can be very stressful.  So to help out, I have done a little research to help you guys out!  I’ve complied a list of tips from the Forbes website to help you nail an interview!

Plan and be prepared.

These two go hand in hand, and they are pretty self-explanatory.  Do a little research about the company beforehand so you will be more confident in responding to their questions.  The more you do ahead of time, the less you have to get ready at the last minute, and the less stressed you will be beforehand.

Rehearse.

It is not necessary to memorize exact answers to common interview questions, but it is a good idea to outline points that you definitely want to make in your answers.  Think about the message you want to convey.

Arrive early and relax.

Allow yourself plenty of time to find out where you need to go, gather your thoughts, and breathe.

Think of the interview as a conversation.

Your employer is trying to get to know you.  They want to see if you will be compatible working together and with the rest of the staff.

Think positively and be confident.

Before your interview, picture yourself doing an incredible job, answering the questions clearly, and impressing them with your knowledge of the company.

Focus on your strengths and your purpose.

Focus on what you want to convey about yourself. You are qualified for the position, otherwise you would not have made it this far.  So don’t let nerves strike you out.

Breathe and take your time.

When we’re stressed or anxious, we often begin to take quick and shallow breathes.  Take your time.  If you don’t know an answer to a question right away, take time to gather your thoughts and form an answer.

Accept the fact that mistakes will happen.

Nobody is perfect.  Taking the pressure off now will help you perform better.  No employer is looking for perfection, they want to see that you can handle a situation under stress and be flexible as you work through a problem.

Good luck with any future interviews you may have!  Have a great weekend Cavs!

Third Time’s a Charm!

Hey Cavs!

So last Wednesday was Walsh’s annual Student Activities Fair in the David Center!  This was the third and final Activities Fair that fellow blogger, Ali, and I got to be a part of.  Senior year is full of bittersweet moments and this was definitely one of them.  But I’m not about that sappy stuff, so we’re not going to think about “lasts” of anything right now.

ANYWAY, if you don’t know what the Student Activities Fair is, it is a day when all of the clubs and organizations at Walsh set up display booths that showcase their club in hopes recruiting some new club members.  This is a great day for everyone on campus to take advantage of, whether you are a freshman or a senior, because there are a ton of awesome clubs here at Walsh to join, and there are new clubs started all the time!

If there is one piece of advice that I would tell anyone at Walsh is to join at least one club.  The clubs and organizations are a great way to branch out, meet new people, develop leadership skills, and have a ton of fun!  Plus, did you know that all the clubs at Walsh have to participate in at least one service project a semester?  So, by being in a club you will have the opportunity to do some service for the local community!  If we don’t have a club that you were looking for, then get some friends together and start one up!  We have students start their own clubs all of the time.

The reason Ali and I were at the fair is because, since sophomore year, we have both been coordinators for the Campus Ambassadors Program!  I know I have already talked about what Campus Ambassadors do, but to refresh your memory, we are the tour guides on campus!  Although giving tours is our main responsibility, we get to help out with other events on campus as well.  There are four Open Houses throughout the year when high school students are paired with Campus Ambassadors for a day so they get to sit in classes and have a chance to see how awesome it is to be a Cavalier!

Ali and I in front of our booth!

It you didn’t get a chance to stop by the fair, don’t fret!  All of the clubs send out emails when they have their meetings, and they are open to all students.  Just attend one of their meetings and I am sure the club officers will catch you up on any information that was covered at previous meetings.  Officers are always welcoming new members, any time of the year!

So get out there and get involved!  Have a fun and active year!

’Til next time, go Cavs!

Summer School: Uganda Style

Hey Cavs!

So I hope everybody had a safe and fun-filled summer!  I know I did, and I wanted to take a minute to share with you the incredible opportunity I had this summer.

Walsh has a lot of different really cool Global Learning opportunities for all of its students, and I am here to encourage you to take advantage of them!

This summer I actually traveled with 8 other Walsh students and 5 faculty members to Uganda, Africa.  That’s right, Uganda!   Starting out at Walsh I expected a normal college experience, never in a million years did I think I would one day be taking classes in Africa!  It was an incredible, life-changing experience. I could talk about this trip for hours on end, but I will try to give a brief recap of some of my favorite parts.

The entire trip was about two weeks long at the end of May.  We stayed at Kisubi Brothers University College in Kisubi, Uganda; which was about halfway between two of the major cities in Uganda— Entebee and Kampala (which is the capital).  There were 12 students that went to KBUC that participated in the program with us.  All 21 students went to class together and either a Walsh or Kisubi Brothers professor taught class depending on the lesson of the day. Basically, each day started with class in the morning and then site visits in the afternoon.  Three of my favorite sites we visited were L’Arch Uganda, Mbabaali Memorial School for Orphans, and Meeting Point International.

L’Arch Uganda is a community for individuals with exceptionalities in Uganda.  When we visited, we were able to meet the workers and some of the people that lived there.  They told us how the community was run and toured us around the property.  We saw the school rooms where they went to class, the garden where the students learned how to grow plants, and the pig pen where the students learned to care for and raise a pig.  Before we left, we all danced, sang, and prayed together.  It was beyond inspiring knowing that even in a poor country such as Uganda, that there are still people willing to put their time and effort into caring for those who are disabled.

Mbabaali Memorial School is a school for orphaned children.  When we first arrived at the school, the students had prepared several songs and dances to preform for us.  It was so uplifting watching the children smile from ear to ear as they sang and danced for us.  Watching their performance, one would never be able to tell that the children were orphans living in poverty.  They all have so little, but still are able to find joy and happiness in life.  After their performance, we were able to meet and play with the children at the school.  We brought a bunch of old toys from home to donate to the children, and they loved playing with us.

Me with a group of students from Mbabaali Memorial School

We spent two days at Meeting Point International, a community for women and families living with HIV/AIDS.  MPI was also where we completed one of our service projects on the trip.  For the first day and a half, we cleaned, sanded, and painted two different classrooms there.

When we were finished, we were able to meet some of the women and children that lived in the community.  First we all sang and danced together, and we thanked them for letting us help by painting the classrooms.  The women then paraded us through their village with song and dance and took us to their rock quarry.  At the quarry, the women showed us how they smashed quartz into tiny pieces in order to be able to sell it.

A classmate and me learning how to crush the quartz at Meeting Point International

These women would spend all day smashing quartz to fill up one bucket that could be sold for 100 Ugandan shillings; that’s the equivalent of 4 American cents.  Could you imagining smashing rock in the sun all day for 4 cents?  The women we met were incredible and would do anything they could to provide for their children and families.

I would go back to Uganda in a heartbeat if I could.  The friendships I made with students there will last a lifetime, and I will never forget all the memories I have from the experience.

Two students are missing, but this was one of the classrooms at MPI we painted

Weekends at Walsh

Hey Cavs!

So I don’t know about you, but I have been loving all of this awesome weather lately! It has been a little windy and rainy, but if it is warm enough to rain and not snow, then I’m content!

I just wanted to update everyone on all of the awesome events that have happened at Walsh recently.  It’s getting to that stressful point of the semester where deadlines are quickly approaching, but there have been a ton of weekend events to give everyone a break from their studies.

Last weekend was jam-packed!  Last Friday, Josh Gracin came to campus for a free concert for students! Non-students were welcome to come as well for only $5! Unfortunately, I was not able to attend because I was on duty that night as an RA, but I heard from many friends and residents that he was great! They had a really fun time jammin’ out and dancing with friends!

Then on Saturday night, UPB hosted its annual Spring Formal dance; this year’s theme was The Walsh Gatsby!  The dance was right on campus in the Barrette Center  and dinner was provided.  Tickets were only $15 but when one of the options is steak, steak and a dance for $15 is practically a steal!  Like previous years, the Barrette Center was packed that night!  The annual formal is the perfect opportunity for students to enjoy a great night of music and dancing with their friends!  Plus, who doesn’t love a reason to dress up and act fancy for a night!

This past weekend was a weekend of firsts for Walsh! Friday during the day was the first annual Battle of the Buildings.  I had a previous commitment and was not able to attend, but I heard from my friends that did get to go, that it was basically a ton of obstacles, inflatables, and games that teams from the different residence halls had to complete in an olympic style competition.

The previous commitment I had was to be a part of the first annual WU Dance Marathon!  WU Dance Marathon was organized in order to raise money for Akron Children’s Hospital.  Basically, participants raise funds from family members and friends to support them while they participate in this event.  At the dance marathon, participants are encouraged to dance but required to at least be standing the whole time.  Doesn’t sound too bad right?  Except the marathon was 17 hours long!  The marathon started at 8 pm on Friday night and went until 1 pm on Saturday!  The event was 17 hours long to represent the 17 million children that Children’s Miracle Network helps every year.  Akron Children’s Hospital is a part of the Children’s Miracle Network, which is where our money was going to.

The WU Dance Marathon was a blast and a huge success! Close to 50 students from Walsh and Malone danced/stood all night long!  There were different themed hours of music playing, such as Disney, Broadway, Boy Band, Girl Power, International, and many more.  There were games to play, food to eat, and a Morale Dance that a friend and I taught a little part of to everyone each hour of the marathon.  The moral Dance ended up being 13 minutes long!  Saturday during the day some kids who have been helped by Akron Children’s Hospital came to dance with us and share their stories.  It was an awesome experience and in the end we raised over $6000! I cannot wait to do it again next year.

Have a great week Cavs and enjoy that sunshine!

A Catholic University of Distinction

Hey Cavs!

So this past week was Eucharist Week on campus and it got me thinking a little bit.  I’ve written blogs about classes at Walsh and programs on campus and all the sporting events, but I’ve never mentioned anything about the religious side of Walsh.  Which amazes me because my faith has been such an integral part of my experience at Walsh.  And don’t worry, I’m not going to lecture you about religion the whole time, I’m just going to share with you how Walsh has helped my faith grow.

A good part to start is the weekly masses at Walsh.  It is never required to attend Walsh, but anyone is always welcome to come!  There are two masses offered on Sunday and I usually go to the night mass as 8:00 pm because I have always been a proud supporter of sleeping in on the weekends.  Plus, there is always a free dinner and social offered after the night mass.  Yes, that’s right, FREE FOOD! Who can turn down a free meal?  Mass is the perfect way to kick off the week on the right foot; the songs are upbeat and Fr. Anselm gives awesome homilies that anyone can relate to.

Then, every other Tuesday night, Campus Ministry hosts a non-denominational Praise and Worship session.  Everyone signs and dances to fun, modern praise and worship songs.  It’s the perfect study break on a Tuesday night and another opportunity to grow closer to God.  There is usually a speaker brought in to give a quick reflection or thought for the night as well.  It is very relaxing and always a great time.

What got me thinking about this blog was Eucharist week; more specifically, this past Tuesday there was all-night Adoration available for anyone in the Chapel.  The Chapel was open from after Praise and Worship at 8:00 pm until mass the next morning at 7:30 am.  I signed up to attend from 3:00 – 6:00 am to make sure that someone was there at the late hours, but it was not necessary to sign up, anybody could come at anytime.  If you are unfamiliar with Adoration, it is basically a time when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed and anyone can come to pray and spend time with God.  It was very peaceful when I was there in the middle of the night, and it was just what I needed to talk to God, pray about my life, and be reminded that I am headed in the right direction.

Now if you are not Catholic, I don’t want you to read this and freak out.  Believe it or not, only roughly half of the students who attend Walsh are Catholic.  Religion is never forced on anyone.  Walsh is open to everyone’s values.  If you do practice a different religion, Campus Ministry will help you find a place near campus you can go to attend services and grow in your own faith.  Plus, there is always the Praise and Worship service on Tuesdays.  One of the reasons I have enjoyed Walsh so much is because I have never felt like anyone has thrown religion in my face, but it is so comforting to know that I have so many opportunities available when I do want to grow in my faith.

Spring Break Approaching!

Hey Cavs!

How is your semester going so far? I can’t believe that I am preparing for midterms already!  Spring semester is once again flying by! And spring break is only a week away!

With the nice weather starting to move in and the end of the semester slowly approaching, it can be very easy to slack off and procrastinate a little more than usual.  Now is the perfect time to step it up and leave for spring break on a good note!  I done some research and crafted a list of the best tips to remain successful as the semester continues on.

1. Create realistic goals.

Everybody wants an A and everybody wants to pass the class.  It can be easier and less stressful if you set little goals along the way to achieve your overall goal in the end.  Basically, instead of just saying your are going to get an A in the course, maybe just aim for getting an A on your next quiz or finishing a paper a few days early so you have time to proofread it.  This also helps because if you miss the mark slightly, it’s still a manageable letdown, it will be a lot easier for you to get back on track.

2. Get to know your professors.

We are so blessed here at Walsh to have such an incredible faculty and staff.  Take advantage of it!  Office hours were created for a reason, use this time to ask questions that you didn’t think of during class or get advice for upcoming tests, projects, or essays.  Show your professor that you care about your grade, their course, and getting to know them on a personal level.  They want you to succeed and will be willing to help you any way they can.

4. Participate in class.

This kind of goes along with the tip above, but it helps to show that you care.  Professors will notice that you are consistently participating.  It also helps you pay attention to what is going on.  You will have a better understanding of the course because you put in the extra effort to ask questions, make comments, and give answers.

5. Skipping class is not an option.

This is Walsh, whether professors give attendance points or not, they know when you aren’t in class.  This tip should be a given, but it’s still worth saying.

6. Don’t limit studying to at night.

This goes for any kind of homework or studying you have to do.  And I’ll be honest, this is probably the hardest tip for me to follow.  Try to study or do work whenever and wherever, even in between your classes if you have time.  If you go to class all day or have a job, by the time night rolls around, you will have less energy and not be as motivated.  Plus, if you wait to do everything at night, you will have to switch from subject to subject which can make for difficult transitions.

7. Disconnect.

Alright, I may have lied a little because this tip is really hard too.  When you’re studying, just study.  Don’t look at your phone, don’t get on Facebook, and don’t do anything that’s not relevant to what you are working on.  It will help your focus tremendously and in the end make your study or work session a lot more productive.

8. Sleep.

This is my favorite tip because I love sleep!  When you get enough sleep at night, you are actually able to function and think like a regular human being!  When you start practicing tip 6, magically your nights will start to clear up, and suddenly you will be able to go to bed sooner!

9. Take time to relax.

Everybody reaches the point when they get burnt out.  Try to avoid reaching that point by taking days off, giving yourself breaks, and rewarding yourself every so often.  It is possible to stay organized and stay on track with your studies but have a life at the same time.

10. Remember that hard work pays off.

This one may seem like common sense, but it’s a necessary reminder. You are smart enough and you can end strong!

I have faith in all of you Cavs! Keep up the great work!

This is Real Life

Hey Cavs!

So for my education major, I am in a class this semester called Reading in the Content Area.  It is basically a class that educates future teachers on how to incorporate more english and reading into any type of classroom.  We have learned many different reading strategies that can be used in lessons that help teach not only the main subject of the class, whether it be science, math, or history, but reading and literacy as well.

For this class, I was placed at Mckinley High School to complete my observation hours and field experience.  I was able to observe a math teacher there who taught many different math classes throughout the day— AP Calculus, Advanced Algebra II/Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus.  Part of the requirements for the field experience was to administer 3-minute reading assessments to students in the class to see about what level all of the students were at.  Everyone I tested generally scored really well!  Another requirement was to teach a lesson to the class.  I taught my lesson this past Tuesday, and I was super nervous!

This was the first lesson that I taught to an actual class, as opposed to teaching practice lessons to my fellow students at Walsh.  I was really anxious but so excited because this means that I am that much closer to graduating and becoming an actual teacher!  Another reason I was nervous though was because I had to include a set number of reading strategies in the lesson I was teaching them.  So here I am trying to teach a math lesson (which always isn’t the most popular with students, I’m sure you know) but on top of it telling them that they have to read as well (you can only imagine how excited I thought they would be now)!  I really thought that the students were going to be bored out of their minds and not pay attention at all.

To my surprise, they loved it!  Well, I don’t know if they loved it, but they at least paid attention and participated the entire time!  I had one activity where the students were able to use their imagination to write a short math story, and they really got into it!  I talked with my cooperating teacher after my lesson, and he said that he really thought the students enjoyed the lesson.  It was a nice change of pace for them, so they were willing to stay active and involved in the class.

Overall, it was a great field experience this semester, and it really got me excited to be a teacher one day!  The next year and a half is going to continue to fly by, but I definitely have a positive outlook on my future!

Have a great week Cavs!

Every Minute Counts

So, as I’m sure everyone knows already, it is just about time to schedule courses again for next semester.  First of all, I cannot believe how fast this semester is going.  But I say that a lot, so I’ll leave it at that and move on.  Secondly, I am pumped for next semester.  After laying out my plan for the next year and a half until graduation, I realized that I only have to take 13 credit hours next semester.  I am studying abroad this summer and am getting some courses done then, so it frees up my semester a lot!  I will only be in the classroom on Tuesdays and Thursdays, which leaves my Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays completely free every week!  Now I do work some of those days, but that’s not the same as sitting in class.  Needless to say, I cannot wait for next semester to be here.

However, this has got me thinking because as excited as I am for next semester to be here, I am trying really hard to enjoy the rest of this semester as well.  There is still a solid month of school left that I am just wishing away, and I feel like this happens too many times in my life.  I have a stressful day or maybe a busy week coming up, and all I want is for tomorrow come or the week to be over.  I will deem something as hard and then just hope it is over as soon as possible.  It is like I can’t really focus, relax, or have fun until it is done.

As a result, I am challenging you, as well as myself, to take time to stop and smell the roses.  As cliche as that is, it’s true.  We can’t just keep wishing our life away.  Before you know it, it’s going to be graduation day, and you are going to be asking where the last four years went!  So sure, you may have a hard test at the end of the week or a huge project due in two weeks, but don’t let your tomorrow ruin your today.  I’m not saying forget about everything and don’t prepare for your test or start on your project early, I’m just saying plan ahead and leave time to take breaks and have some fun.  It is just as important to get your mind off of school or work for a little bit to rejuvenate yourself.

One game I like to play at dinner when I sit down with a group of people is “Favorite Part of the Day” – pretty creative name, I know.  But how it usually goes is— I sit down at the table and ask, “So, what was everyone’s favorite part of the day?”  And then everyone goes around and talks about their favorite part of the day!  Obviously it’s not a very hard game and there’s really no way to win, BUT it is super fun because it gives everyone a chance to tell of something good or happy or funny that happened to them that day.  My only rules are that you have to pick something that was actually good and you can’t pick something that hasn’t happened yet, so nothing like, “My favorite part is going to be when I get to sleep tonight.”  People try that one a lot, I shut it down right away.  Somedays it’s hard to think of something and other days it’s hard to decide what was your favorite, but everyone has to think of something.  It makes everyone realize that no matter how rough of a day it was, there was still something there that made you smile or feel good about yourself.  The game usually ends with everyone laughing together or just going off on some random, funny tangent, but it is always a successful game.

So, whether it is playing the “Favorite Part of the Day” game or just thinking about the positive things that day before you go to bed, do something to remind yourself that today was still a great day! And hey, tomorrow is going to be even better!

I don’t typically end with quotes but I found this one and really like it, so I figured I would share:

“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.” -Earl Nightingale

‘Til next time, enjoy your week Cavs!
