I think I had senioritis as a Junior in high school~can any one else relate?
It’s getting to be that time of year when Seniors are feeling the senioritis bug biting pretty hard. Do whatever it takes to avoid this disease-it can really hurt your chances of success in college. Did you know that colleges do “take-backs?” They do-trust me.
Seniors get accepted to colleges during the fall of their senior year and then kinda sit back and enjoy Senior year not realizing that when you graduate, colleges get your final transcript from your high school. We see how bad senioritis really is…we see the low grades, dropped course or fluffy senior years. Evidence at UWGB shows that students whose gpa drops or they drop courses senior year tend to do poorly when they come to UWGB. So we have gotten a little tougher with senioritis victims- it’s called rescinding admissions (AKA: take-back).
So I know the senioritis disease is catchy and spreading in your high school. Avoid it. Do whatever you can to finish your senior year well. Trust me, you will be glad you did.
If you already have senioritis and you think it might be influencing your grade point average…let us know what’s going on. It’s much better to hear it from you rather than on your final transcript. We are here to help you-please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Here is the first photo in the “Where’s Phlash!?” game…can you guess where he is?
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, despite the terrible weather conditions!
While at home over break, I’ve decided to play a little game with you all! Before finals were done, I took my little Phlash the Phoenix doll around campus and took pictures. Your job is to figure out where on campus the picture was taken. Some will be harder than others, but overall it should be fun! I’ll be posting one or two pictures a week, so keep your eyes peeled for them.
Good luck, and Happy Holidays!
Today (December 1st) was my 20th Birthday, and my mom felt it necessary to buy me a disney princess cake over thanksgiving break. I guess this does prove that you’re never too old for disney! Just thought I would share
I’m going to eat some more of my delicious cake!
The time has come (yet again) to enroll for my spring semester classes. My favorite time of year, when SIS (Student Information System) is checked more compulsively than facebook! Luckily, UWGB students don’t have to deal with the stresses of enrollment alone. Academic advising provides students with advisers on a walk-in basis through November 20th. The advisers are so helpful, and go above and beyond to answer any questions or concerns students might have about their classes or major. I definitely encourage anyone with questions or concerns to stop in. It will only take about 20 minutes of your time!
If you want more info on academic advising, here’s their link!
Well, I’ve got to go check if my prospective classes are still open! Wish me luck.
This saturday kicked off our first basketball games, and pep band performances of the year! Both the men and women’s teams won, making for some fun weekend entertainment. Saturday was also halloween, and members dressed up in costumes ranging from a Banana to a ladybug (that was me!). Here is the link to a video of our Phoenix Fight Song. Enjoy!
Today, I was able to attend Chancellor Harden’s Inauguration Carnival. There were fun games, great prizes, and some fantastic jazz music to listen to! I had a great time.

Midterm Exams are just around the corner, I know I’m already studying like crazy!
Here are some handy tips to help you ace your tests…
-Eating a healthy meal before your exam will help improve concentration, and having snacks during study time will boost your brain back to full power. Try to avoid sugary foods, and go for some cheese, or an apple.
-It never works. I know we all like to procrastinate (especially me), but pulling an all nighter before an exam is never good. Start to study a week in advance so by the time your midterm arrives, you’ll know the material inside and out!
Get Some Sleep!
Studying when you are awake and alert will help you retain more material. If you’re tired or become tired while studying, take a 20 minute power nap or go for a walk to get those brain juices flowing again.
-This one is pretty self-explanatory. Clear off your workspace, and make sure there is good lighting in order to use your study time more efficiently.
Turn The TV Off!
-Listening to music, or having the television on in the background can be distracting. To avoid these distractions, I suggest going to the Library (6th Floor is my favorite place to go).
Practice Makes Perfect
-If you are studying for a math or science exam, work multiple problems from the book. Make sure to check your answers, and go see your professors if you don’t understand one. For other exams, try re-writing your notes in a separate notebook or on a dry erase board. This will re-introduce the material to your mind.
There you have it!
What are some of your helpful tips!? I hope these will help you on your next exam.
Good Luck, and happy studying!
