Anonymous asked: Can you make a YouTube channel? And give college tips and tricks in a video that would be awesome
hmm i never thought about doing that. i don’t know what i would do for videos, though!
I’ve updated the Textbooks page, as Slugbooks has changed how you search for textbooks.
I recommend using the College Problems textbook website if you want to search by your course number/professor. Otherwise, Slugbooks is perfectly good to use if you have received your class syllabus already.
IF YOU DON’T THINK THAT PURCHASING YOUR TEXTBOOKS ONLINE IS A GOOD IDEA, HEAR ME OUT!
You will spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on textbooks at your school bookstore. There’s a good chance you will never open that book again after the first week of classes. My freshman year of college, I spent $600 a SEMESTER on textbooks from the school bookstore. That’s $1,200 A YEAR on textbooks.
Today I used the College Problems Textbooks link (seen on the Textbooks page), and I will be spending a little over $40 on textbooks this spring semester. ONLY $40!!! Compared to $600 a semester, that’s pocket change.
I wouldn’t recommend buying textbooks online if I didn’t think it was beneficial. You will save THOUSANDS of dollars buying your textbooks online throughout your college career.
Anonymous asked: I was supposed to fly back today and now I'm going to be late getting back because of the stupid airlines. I won't get back in time before classes start. Am I screwed, as I'm already starting two days behind everyone ends?
i don’t believe so, no. if i were you, i would email all of my professors explaining my situation, and that i would see them during the next expected course period. the classes will just be introducing the syllabi, basically what you experienced the first week of your first semester.
once you do get back to school, just talk to your professors explaining that you were the one who emailed them, and get any paperwork and information you need to get the semester going.
Anonymous asked: Hi, my name is Sarah I'm going to college in the fall of 2014. And I'm super nervous. I haven't got accepted to any college yet and I feel like it's too late because mostly ever person in my senior class got an acceptance letter. It's kind of hard to find a college best fit for me because I have a hearing disabilty (40% of my hearing is lost) and I want to find a college best fit for me but also want to fit in.. Any advice?
hi! i don’t remember when i got my acceptance letters, but i believe it was around this time. i know it seems worrisome, but don’t sweat it! yours will be coming soon.
as for the hearing disability, all colleges will have some type of accommodation for you (do to the ADA). i wouldn’t worry too much about finding the college that’s a best first for you due to that fact. i would be looking for the colleges that you feel the most comfortable at. even at this point, i would suggest touring campus’s that you haven’t considered going to.
i hope this has helped a little. good luck!
