Things That Every Student Should do in His Last Year of College

In your last year of college this is where you’re doing your final research project for your major. Depending on what that major is, it can be a real whopper. For example, if you’re a marketing major, your assignment may be to research a company from the ground up and report on how it became successful. You may also be asked to design a fictional company and market it from square one. Whatever the assignment you can be assured that it will be very time consuming. You won’t have as much free time to prepare for life after college as you think. Therefore it is a good idea to start on several things as early as possible so that they don’t pile up on you.

The first thing is deciding what comes after college. You basically have two choices here. You can either continue your education by going for a masters degree or you can decide that a BA is good enough and go out looking for a job.

In the case of the former you don’t want to start applying for colleges at the end of your last semester or you may find that your advanced education career isn’t going to start when you’d like. Most colleges have deadlines for applications and they’re long before your last semester is over. So start applying for colleges early. If the college you’re attending has its own masters program and you plan to register, make sure you do this early. Even though you may be a current student your college also has deadlines. You don’t want to miss them.

In the case of the latter where you’ve decided that you’ve had enough of school and want to get a job, you still want to get a jump on this. For starters, employers look favorably on students who start sending in applications early. This shows the prospective employer that the student is serious about his future, and many times a student will get a job just because he applied to the company early.

Also, you want to make sure that you make a list of companies you want to apply to. Finding a job can be a long process and sometimes you can go on fifty interviews before you find something. You’re going to need all the time you can get to not only get applications for these companies but also to do the research on them. You don’t want to go into an interview cold. You want to be able to tell the H.R. person something about the company so they can see you did your homework. This can sometimes mean the difference between getting a job or not.

Finally, you want to start on your resume right away. Printers take a long time to get these together. Plus, there is lots of proofreading that needs to be done. You don’t want to save this for the last minute.

 

About Art Colleges

1. Good choice?

Art school will definitely benefit you as an artist. Your innate talent will benefit from the proven concepts and techniques you can learn here. It may be that you already know the basics and the techniques of your art. Rest assured that there are always things the art school can teach you that you won’t already know.

Art school also develops in its students a love and appreciation for the different forms of art. It opens to the student new vistas of learning and expressing. Even if only for that reason, Art school would be worth every penny.

2. Who Is Art School Suited For?

Artists are a rare kind. They seem to be able to create masterpieces without complicated theories and computations. It’s as if they are moved by instinct to draw, paint, and create visually pleasing artworks. Some artists, when asked about their artwork, would simply shrug and say they didn’t know what motivated them, and they just felt like painting it. Art school should not aim to correct this freewheeling style of artistry. It should, however, provide the basic techniques and theories on art and creativity. Instead of suppressing natural skill, it should develop and enlighten it by explaining the concepts behind art. Unlike what most people think, there truly is a science behind art.

Artists sometimes just create art. But after Art College, they come to a realization of theories behind what they have done by instinct. Fundamental theories can only improve and supplement the talent students have.

3. What to Learn?

When choosing an Arts College, look into the nature of its programs.

– Is it solely a graphic design school or does it offer courses in other specific areas?
– Is this school well-known for its emphasis on its programs?
– Is the school recognized internationally?
– Is the class size large or small?
– How many years will the program be in total?
– Does the school provide any statistics or downloadable documents outlining the percentage of its graduates that are now working in their chosen field?

4. Specialize!

Remember that the subject of art is not just a big blob with the label art. It is composed of numerous subcategories and specializations. You need to choose a specialization because if you don’t, your skills will be diffused trying to learn the many branches of art. Try to improve the most at the area of your interest. It could be painting, sculpture, digital arts or others.

5. Be The Best

Also, look into whether the school participates in any graphical arts competitions or has accomplished anything of renown in the industry. This is a sure sign of their commitment to the arts and the education of its students. One of the best things one can get out of Art College is exposure to competition and industry standards. Such competition pushes one from being complacent. If you are to be a better artist, you should never be satisfied with what you already know. You should grab the opportunity to learn new and exciting things.

6. Conclusion

Your education might be the most important investment you make in your life. Without proper training, your chances at success are greatly diminished. A proper Art college will certainly train you and equip you with the tools needed to make it big in your profession.

 

Advantages of College Degree Online

The primary advantage to earning a quick college degree online is the learning format itself. Online learning is adjustable to the needs of the student, offering flexible class schedules and continuously available course materials. A student who carries the responsibilities of a full-time job and a family does not need to worry about fitting in class time. And the time frame is often perfect for the needs of the working student. In fact, many online programs are geared toward the working adult looking to earn a degree in a short period of time. Because of this, online colleges and universities have designed programs that teach more pertinent material in compressed frames of time. If a student goes into an online program with an Associate’s degree, it is possible to earn a bachelor’s degree in a year (as opposed to traditional college, where it would take 2-3 years or longer, depending on the degree program). For the student who has no prior college credits, it can take less than 2 years to earn a bachelor’s degree. The ability for a school and its students to achieve this involves a concept known as accelerated learning.

Accelerated learning involves teaching a few key components of a subject or field at a time in smaller periods that are shorter than the typical college semester, usually 4-6 weeks. The most important and pertinent information to the topic is taught. Students are better able to focus on one topic at a time, without having to cram different information from different courses into their heads. Therefore retention of newly learned information is often higher. In the business world, where a person is often accustomed to working on one task or project at a time, the ability to focus on and hone in on the nuances of one topic at a time is a key tool that can be improved upon for a person’s professional future. In an accelerated learning environment, shorter class frames not only means better retention of learned material, but also mean that students are likely to remain more interested in the program. Therefore, students are more likely to complete the program and graduate from this quick type of learning program with a college degree.

The advantages of earning a quick college degree online are numerous. The ability to earn a college degree in less than 2 years means that you will be able to find a great job, or advance in your current position sooner than if you took the traditional college route. Online learning provides a flexibility that does not hinder your work and social life. It allows you to schedule school around life, not the other way around. The availability of your course materials, discussion archives, and research resources is great – they are all at your disposal online, which means that they are available to you any time you need them, from any computer. The biggest advantage of earning a quick college degree is by far the satisfaction you will have knowing that you achieved a huge goal, and that your professional opportunities will be limitless in the future. Getting a quick college degree through an online program is the ultimate way to get career and personal satisfaction in a short period of time.

 

School Uniforms Point

There are some definite pros and cons of both sides, and strangely enough some of them are the same. Confused yet? It is simple really, take the following into consideration. One of the big arguments for school uniforms is that by using them and forcing the students to look alike you are taking out their individuality. This can be seen as a good thing because individuality can often cause trouble among people. The more they all look the same the less likely they are to fight and disturb each other. People claim that if all of the kids dressed the same in their school uniforms they would not have as much to pick on other for. Clothes can be a huge divider and if they are taken out of the equation by making use of school uniforms then what will there be left to fight about?

Personally, I think that this argument takes away the credit young people deserve when it comes to their ability to wreak havoc. Let’s face it, not everyone is going to look the same as the others even when they all dress alike. Some are bound to look better in the school uniforms than others which still leaves many open to cruelty.

There is a flip side to the all looking the same in school uniforms theory. Many people feel that by taking away the students individuality you are not lessening the cause for trouble but only taking away the things that make people special. People are who they are and most people, especially young people define themselves by the way they look. If you take away their right to express themselves through the way that they look they will have to find some other way to do it and theses ways could very well be worse and more destructive than funky clothing.

School uniforms are a fact of life for many students, especially those in religious and private schools. For the most part the school uniforms do not seem to be making too much of a difference either way in terms of the behavior of the students. Schools where there are school uniforms being worn are just as likely to see violence and arguments in the halls as those without any school uniforms.

Children will be children and it does not matter what you dress them up in, whether it is school uniforms or jeans they are still going to behave like children. Children can be mean and they will find something to pick on others about if they are a bully, whether it is the way they look in their school uniforms or in their jeans.
