Thinking outside the college degree

Getting an engineering degree is pretty tough work -of course I wouldn’t know about that, but people tell me. I just assume if someone goes through the trouble of getting an engineering education they wouldn’t think of doing something else for a career. Continue reading “Thinking outside the college degree”

The home stretch

end-is-near-simpsons

I hate to be “that guy”, but dead week starts Monday and finals week starts the Monday after, the end has never been closer (in a thick, suspenseful voice). However, having gone to class all semester and battled procrastination to study and do homework, I feel somewhat prepared, and even though I have not started studying for final exams yet, I plan to just take full advantage of dead week to tackle classes one at a time in the order they come. A lot of people may be feeling very overwhelmed right now, but here is what I am going to do and I hope it works for others too. Continue reading “The home stretch”

Do what you love and you will never have to work a day in your life

I love what I do, and I feel really grateful that I can say that. That thought made me think even more about why it is I am yet to dread anything I do and unlike a lot of people I do not have any miserable tasks hanging over my head.

So having listed all the cool and fun courses to sign up for here at K-State, here is one class that pretty much any Business, Golf course management, Hospitality management, Engineering and many students from other majors will probably attest to it as being one of the most challenging and most rigorous courses they had taken during their time in school. Finance 450, probably the most popular (or perhaps infamous) course in the college of business, I like to describe it as the “boogeyman” of the CBA.

So why does Finance 450 get so much bad rep? Continue reading “Finance 450: The boogeyman of the College of Business”

Concerts with Cohorts

JingleJam-Flipper-New

College is a time to spend with friends enjoying whatever you can.  My friends and I have common tastes in music so we choose to spend a lot of time bonding over it.  It all changes though when you have the chance to road trip with friends to a concert. Continue reading “Concerts with Cohorts”
