Summer Jobs for Students

  Summer is here and there is money to be made especially if you are a college student! I’ve spoken with many students who are taking advantage of their summer break by working extra hours since they are either not taking classes or not taking as many. Are you a college student who is looking to make some extra money? If so, keep reading for a few helpful tips! Figure 1: This is a thumbnail for my YouTube video on Summer Jobs for Students where I am smiling next to money emojis.   The first thing I always recommend is using your campuses’ hiring platform. Many campuses have a special platform that they use to post student jobs that are available on campus. You can also take a stop by the place that you would like to work and ask if they are hiring and how you can apply. Career Services is another great place on campus with leads on available jobs. In undergrad, I worked at a store on campus that served hot and cold foods. I actually was hired during the summer at an on campus-hiring

I Think I Have a Disability! What Should I Do?


(This a photo of me holding my hand to my chin while looking inquisitive used as a thumbnail for my YouTube video on I Think I Have A Disability What Should I Do?)


 Around the end of the semester I notice a lot of students being referred to Disability Services for academic support. Many times as the semester is ending the realization that a student may fail a course becomes more apparent. While this may be linked to several issues like not being familiar with the subject, sometimes there is a deeper concern at hand.  If you find yourself wondering do I have a disability ? Should I be registered with Disability Services? There are a few things to consider first.

The first being have you considered other options? Have you fully participated in tutoring or worked with your classmates? Many times the issues you may be having can be fixed after fully improving your study habits and talking with others. Remember two heads work better than one! I also recommend students speak with their professors first. Be sure to let them know about your specific struggles and ask for any tips or strategies to help you pass the course. This also helps your professor to know that you take your learning serious and want to succeed ! 

Another thing to consider is if you received Special Education services in K-12 through an IEP or 504. If so, you may want to register with Disability Services to continue these services. This will not happen automatically !  Which brings me to my next point of documentation. Documentation or a record of your diagnosis is needed to apply for services. In some cases temporary accommodations can be provided without it. 

However, if you don’t have any don’t worry ! Disability services will be able to connect you with the right place to complete this step ! Now you may be wondering what happens when I’m registered ? You will meet with a staff member who will discuss which accommodations will best fit your needs , how these accommodations work, and how you can ensure that they are in place each semester. It’s really an easy process ! For more information check out the video below !

Tips for First Year Doctoral Students

  Figure 1 :  This is a picture of a black doctoral cap   Well my first year as a doctoral student has come to an end. I turned in my last assignment of the semester earlier this week and man did it feel good! I still plan to take summer courses but I have about a month break until then. This first year has taught me so much about my major of higher education and myself. This past semester I took on History of Higher Education and Introduction to Quantitative Statistics. While the history course wasn’t so bad the stats course was a whole other ball game! Especially for someone who has always struggled with numbers. This course took a lot of getting used to and reminded me of somethings that all first year doctoral students should know. Figure 2: This is a picture of pink balloon letters that spell the word "friends". First things first make friends with the people in your program. This may be hard due to COVID and if you are in an online program like myself but don’t le

What's Biden Doing for Student Loan Forgiveness? (You May Already Qualify!)

  (This a photo of me smiling at my desk used as a thumbnail for my YouTube video on What's Biden Doing with Student Loan Forgiveness?) A hot topic right now in politics is the Biden Administration and student loan forgiveness. I myself have been keeping up with all headlines regarding this matter because like most of you all I have a student loan balance. While the balance is small compared to most folks, it’s still a balance and where I’m at currently in my debt free journey. In case you were unaware, about two weeks ago a report came out that President Biden asked Michael Cardona, the Secretary of Education to write a memo regarding the legalities of him being able to forgive student loan debt through an executive order and how much can be forgiven. Biden’s main buzz around his campaign to become president was that he would forgive $10,000 in student loan debt. However, now democrats are pressuring him to forgive at least $50K but Biden seems to be unsure about this citing tha
