Why should we have it in college?

I’m not always motivated all the time but I try hard to be! Motivation to me is everything because it’s what helps me get things done. What gets me motivated is thinking about the big outcome in the future of what is going to benefit me. For example: My biggest motivation I have right now is graduation, and that is what I’m working up to.  

Where are some reasons why I see being motivated is good for you; 

1.High quality work

Having good grades is what allows us to graduate. We need a certain GPA to pass successfully. Students can’t fail classes and still be allowed to graduate. If you want to get a good grade you are going to put in a lot of time and work into it to do good.  

2.You get along with people better. 

By being motivated I’m more social with people. I think it’s because I’m trying my best to get my work done correctly. So, either asking someone for help, or studying with someone is a good way to be social. You also get to know your professors better by doing one on one with them if you need help.  

3.Less stress 

By being on top of your work to get things done, most likely you are ahead of your work. By getting work done ahead of time, it gives you more time to do other things. The process of staying ahead is very helpful since you don’t have to worry about deadlines at the last minute.  

5 Tips That Help You To Graduate!

just a few, there’s plenty more!!!

The main goal of going to college is to graduate! Being able to graduate is one of the biggest accomplishments you can receive. But, you can’t graduate by doing nothing. Over the years, you get into your own routine of what helps you out the most to succeed.

Here are some useful tips that are helping me lead to graduation:

1. Find a study buddy in every class
This has helped me tremendously. There are times when I’m confused on a topic, so I can text my classmate and ask a quick question. Or if i miss a class period they fill me in, and you do the same for them.

2.Go to office hours The more you keep in touch with your professor shows them that you are willing to get a good grade in the class. They are there to help you for a reason!

3. Figure out your time management
After the few weeks of class you start to figure out the routine of each professor. Make sure to get a daily planner to keep track of all assignments. This will help you stay ahead.

4. Keep in touch with family and friends at home
There are sometimes when I’m just not having a good day. We all have those sometimes. A call from home makes me feel so much better. It reminds me that life doesn’t need to be stressful and to not feel alone. We are all loved and have someone supporting us to graduate!

5. Don’t be afraid to have fun
College can be very stressful. We are all juggling multiple classes and homework assignments at the same time. Take a break, or go for a walk! Hit up a friend from class and go to dinner with them. Go watch a movie on campus! We all need time to relax our brain. As long as you make sure your homework will get done, and you’re prepared for the exam, go have fun!

Hello from your graduation guide!

Get to know me!

Hi everyone. My name is Alyssa Holliman. I am currently a senior at UW-Whitewater with an advertising major with a sociology minor. I’m in my first semester of my final year at college. My end goal out of college is to work for a big company as their event coordinator. I am a very organized person who loves to take charge of things. This blog is going to be about graduation. I am going to write about struggles, weaknesses, strengths, and opportunities leading up to graduation in May 2020. I graduated with my Associates degree at UW-Waukesha so I’m also going to be talking about that somewhat. I am going to relate to how I prepared myself to graduate there compared to now.  College can change a person for the good or the worse because we all go through so many things at once. I’ve never dealt with so much stress or responsibility, but I can say I’ve learned a lot from college. My blog target audience is going to relate to those in high school, students currently in college, or those who have recently graduated. We all have or are going to go through the same thing. I hope that I can show others they aren’t the only one who is struggling with homework, or don’t know how to ask for help. I needed lots of help and encouragement to get me to where I am today. I still struggle because I’m human! I’m also taking 18 credits this semester while working two part time jobs. That is a little about me! I hope you enjoy my first blog post. -Alyssa
