Making The Most From Your Days At College

Posted by on Mar 5, 2019 in Business English | Comments Off on Making The Most From Your Days At College

TIP! Be certain you have enough toiletries when you get to college. This is essential, as you will use them often and may run out before you know it.

College involves big changes and you’ll be making many choices and responsibilities to accomplish things. This can be a challenge, but with the right advice, you will achieve success in college.

TIP! Educate yourself about the career of your choice before you choose a college. Doing this will ensure your desired college provides all the courses you’ll require in order to obtain your degree.

Be sure to take lots of toiletries with you when going to college. These items are very important and tend to run out quickly with all of the times that you will be using them. Buying toiletries in bulk saves money.

TIP! When it comes to succeeding in college, there are many influential factors. In fact, even your choice of seat can make a difference.

Don’t put off applying for grant money and scholarships before going to college. The more you give of your time to finding funding for your college, the less you’ll have to borrow. Come up with a system for monitoring deadlines and be sure to turn in applications as early before deadlines as possible.

TIP! Visit the administration offices of all your potential schools. From here, you’ll learn about different scholarship opportunities available for certain schools.

If you can’t afford college, strongly consider acquiring a loan. College will pay off in the future, and it’s not a bad idea to get a loan that you can later pay off.

TIP! Get real rest. Sleep is essential; even though, all night studying and partying may beckon you.

Spend all the maximum amount of time you can studying every day. The more time you devote to college, the more you will get out of it. Doing great in your classes will ensure that you make more money and a better job.

Have everything you need ready when it is time to test. The instructor does not always have extra supplies, so you have to bring everything with you.

TIP! Used textbooks are the only way to go when on a budget. If every one of your text books is brand new, it adds up to a substantial amount of money.

Your environment may make a difference when you are trying to study. Your dorm room is rarely a good place to study. A library will always good.If you have no other options, put in ear plugs or headphones.

TIP! If employment is necessary during college, seek out your school’s career center. Many times they have part time jobs within the campus and in the surrounding areas.

As you well know, college is a challenging new world for even the most well-rounded student. Suddenly you are in charge of most of the decisions in your life. Using the tips and hints from the article above, you can create a college plan that will work for you and help you get through college and even have time for fun.

I KNOW I CAN Helps Students in Columbus Schools Attain Their College Dreams

Posted by on Dec 30, 2018 in School Workshops | Comments Off on I KNOW I CAN Helps Students in Columbus Schools Attain Their College Dreams

I KNOW I CAN Program Overview

Established in 1998, the I KNOW I CAN organizations seeks to ensure that every qualified Columbus Public School student who wants to go to college has the opportunity to do so. Part of the mission is to encourage children to find out what resources are available to them in order to overcome student and parent fears about financial and informational decisions relating to a college education.

The I KNOW I CAN plan has four missions. The first is to motivate students to stay in school and pursue college. The second is to advise students and parents how to apply for college and access financial aid. The third mission is to fund students with the Last Dollar Grant and find additional sources of financial aid for needy students. Finally, the organization promises ongoing support for students in college to help ensure that they complete their degrees.

Early Awareness Programs

The Columbus Schools offers children a long term program for attending college. Beginning in second grade, all Columbus Public School children receive a free I KNOW I CAN motivational children’s book in order to show children that college is possible and affordable for people from all walks of life.

At the middle and high school level, the Summer Scholars Program helps academically talented students attend summer enrichment programs at college campuses across the nation. Columbus Public School students receive financial and application help to attend these programs and gain the necessary exposure to what life is like on a college campus.

High School Workshops

Academic and financial advising for all high school students, with a particular focus on high school seniors, is another way in which the I KNOW I CAN organization helps Columbus Public School students prepare for college. Volunteer advisors help Columbus Public School students by arranging college awareness fairs and a variety of activities that bring students to college campuses and help them understand the various strategies that they can use to gain admission, including exam preparation as well as enrolling in college preparation courses while still in high school.

Every February, the I KNOW I CAN hosts Financial Aid workshops in conjunction with the Columbus Public Schools. These workshops help parents and students complete all the necessary forms for applying for federal and state financial aid. These workshops pair volunteers with parents and students to ensure the one – on – one attention for each Columbus Public School student interested in applying for college financial aid.

Last Dollar Grants

After ensuring that every Columbus Public School student has received all the financial help possible from federal and state sources, the I KNOW I CAN organization helps to arrange additional funding, up to $ 1,200 per academic year for those students who need extra money to fill the gaps in their financial aid package. The organization guarantees financial aid assistance to every qualified graduate in the Columbus City School District. The grants are available for up to five years and must be re – applied for every year that the student attends university.

The Future of the Past – Teaching History in the UK

Posted by on Dec 2, 2018 in Teaching History | Comments Off on The Future of the Past – Teaching History in the UK

On 5 – 6 April, ISD invited a wide range of eminent historians and top level teachers, as well as writers and documentary makers, to share their views on the teaching of history in the UK as part of a symposium entitled ‘The Future of the Past’.

This short film gives us a glimpse into how history is taught in two inner city schools in London and Birmingham, and asks why it is such an important subject for both students and teachers.
