juggling my various other commitments, I feel like I have been ALL over the place this week.

Go figure, the week that I have to make it to the graduation meeting and attend the Spring Fling (which was fab!), is the week my friend and co-volunteer at my Tae Kwon Do school has to take the week off in order to perform in her school play. So here is my master, expecting me to fill in for her, which put me in the position of sooo much driving back and forth from Bradenton to Sarasota and back and goodness gracious I felt like the biggest waster of gas ever. But I think it was worth it over-all. The Graduation meeting was helpful, I got myself switched into the 10:30 commencement ceremony instead of the 1:00 one because my cousin has to be in the 10:30 and we have ailing grandparents. And I definitely enjoyed the Spring Fling from last night, all of the groups performed beautifully. I hadn’t realized SCF had such an outstanding Jazz Ensemble!

I hope everybody is doing well, what with finals coming up next week and then our break before summer semester kicks in. Let us know if you’ve got any fun sort of plans? Any studying tips? I’m sure we could all use those, phew! Our email is studentblog@scf.edu!

Sometimes it’s Fixable

Graduation No Comments »

I’d like to share a little story with you guys. Back in October I visited FSU, talked to a few professors and toured the school, and made the decision that it was the school I wanted to continue at. I put in my transfer application, sent in all of my paperwork, and then I waited. There were a couple of speed bumps, a couple of delays, but when I checked my “Status Check” page online last Saturday, my results were in!

I’d been rejected. Because I was missing a “milestone marker” for major. What did this mean?! I’d checked and checked and talked to the head of the department I was going into, what “milestone” could I possibly be missing? Surely it wasn’t my G.P.A. I was pretty devastated, not going to lie. I’ve already signed my lease for an apartment in Tallahassee, I’m moving up one way or another.

I think the worst part of reading that decision on Saturday was the fact that I couldn’t do anything about it until Monday. But when Monday rolled around, I was all over the FSU website. I found the numbers I needed (the professor I’d spoken with and undergrad admissions) and I got started. My first call went to the head professor of the Chinese department. He was equally baffled, stating that since I had not been attending FSU for my first two years, he didn’t understand how it was expected that I should have met any program “milestones.” That phone call was not necessarily helpful in finding out why I hadn’t gotten in, but it was comforting to know that somebody higher up was equally confused. It also turned out to be very important later one. My next call went to the admissions office, and after being transferred a few times, it was revealed that I had been rejected because I “lacked proficiency in Chinese.”

This was also confusing. Some personal background, I studied the Chinese language for three years in high school and have also been to China. Alongside both of these facts, the language is spoken every day at home between my step-mom and little sister. Finally, I got to the last person. The Chinese department was under the mass-umbrella of the College of Arts and Sciences, and I needed to speak to the head of that department specifically because she was the woman who reviewed applications for admission. What happened was that when a student gets an A.A. degree, colleges that they are transferring to no longer look at their high school transcripts. The head of the department was under the impression that I had never studied Chinese, as the only language class I have taken at SCF was a semester of French. I explained how and where I had studied Chinese and she told me something magical.

My admission would be reversed. By that Friday, I had been accepted to FSU. The reason this was so simple was because in my case, the only thing holding me back was my supposed lack of experience with the subject that I planned to major in.

So sometimes, its just a misunderstanding. I’m not saying that getting into a university is an easy task, you still have to work hard and stay on top of your game. But if you ever get the dreaded rejection letter, keep in mind that you can always call the university to at least

And now that classes are starting again, is everybody looking forward to the schedule they’ve pulled together? I am. I’m looking forward to pretty much all of my classes, and it’s even more exciting to think about the fact that after this semester… I’ll have completed my career at SCF. I have three semesters that I can look back

Campus Activities, Clubs, Graduation No Comments »

 Hello there, believe it or not there are a couple interesting things happening soon so I thought I would hop on here and alert you. Both of these things happen to occur on a Friday. Okay, so this Friday the 22nd of April @ noon on the Venice campus along the rear walk way, where we usually set up all our tables for Spring Fling and Fall Ball, there will be a tree planting ceremony. I wish I could be there but I will not be able to make it. Anyhow, live oak trees have been donated by the Phi Theta Kappa and Green Team to provide shade along that blistering hot walk-way when we have events. I don’t know about you but that sounds great to me! The oaks donated will be under the care of each of the school’s clubs on campus, so “thanks” in advance!

   Now the Friday after, April 29th in the Selby room, there will be an honors award ceremony for individuals that the faculty feels are deserving of praise due to work exhibited or improved efforts. I am not sure of the time of this event but if you’re interested in attending there may be a posting in the lobby of the Selby building. Congrats to all those nominated!

   Something else I’d like to mention is that Lisa Rydzenski Joseph will be assuming the position of President of our Venice chapter’s Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, called Alpha Mu Upsilon. Yay Lisa! She will be your new contact person for any PTK inquiries as Jodi Jeffries Rossi will be graduating. Congrats to Jodi! We are losing a few officers to graduation this semester as well, so I want to say congrats to Taylor, Kimmy, and Sasha also! You know what this means PTK members, we need new officers! So, if you are currently a PTK member and are interested in becoming an officer please contact Lisa on Angel.

   I’d just like to say a warm thank you to Jodi for all your time and hard work as a member and more, being such a worthy President of our chapter. Your motivated charm and diligent care to attention will be greatly missed on campus. By the way, thanks for leaving us in the hands of such a great candidate for President too. Have a good one!

A Little Scare

Deadlines, Graduation No Comments »

You know those confirmation numbers you always get? The ones after you make an online payment, telephone payment, or a registration for something. You know how you always think (at least me anyway) I won’t need it…but….—and you wind up saving it, or writing it down a scrap piece of paper? I’ll tell you what—it’s worth it, because sooner or later you’re going to need one of those annoyingly long confirmation numbers, you know, the ones that are like 47TGH439THX. Okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but you get the point.

So anyway, after I had sent off an email asking if I could get some extra graduation tickets, my world of “everything’s going really well these days” suddenly became a little stormy. You see, I

had expected a simple response email, something like: “Not a problem, you can pick up the extra tickets after the graduation rehearsal meeting.” That’s not what happened.

At 5:08pm, last night, I checked my email during a break in one my evening classes:

“William, It appears as though you have not completed the online graduation attendance form by Nov 12. You will have to fill out an appeal to the Education Records Office if you wish to be considered for the ceremony.”

Panic, frustration, anger, and disbelief are just a few of the emotions that ran through my mind. Had it really all come to this? Had I done all of this work, and now I might not even be able to attend my own graduation ceremony? No, not possible. I know I checked all the boxes. I know I filled out the online attendance form.

Well–after

I calmed down–I remembered that after I had completed the online attendance form, I received a confirmation email, and you guessed it, it had a confirmation number: 67. Oddly enough, over the Holiday weekend, I was cleaning up my email inbox. I deleted a lot, but I didn’t delete the confirmation email. I even printed out a copy, just to be safe.

I replied to the email, attaching the original confirmation email I received from the records office. This morning, I got an email both apologizing and informing me that I was on the list for attending the graduation ceremony.

Granted, mistakes happen. Was I happy about spending the entire night worrying that I might not be able to attend my own graduation? No, not one bit, and neither was my family. But things happen, and every now and then you need those confirmation numbers. No system is ever perfect, but if we anticipate the unexpected, navigating the potential storms becomes a little easier.

The Mid-Term Itch

Classes, Graduation, Uncategorized No Comments »

There’s a mid-term virus going around campus. It’s a nasty bug. I’ve see it in people’s eyes, and I hear it in their voice. Most everybody seems to be walking around campus like robots. Gazing straight ahead, more than likely thinking about the next homework assignment, or paper that’s due. It’s not just students either. Some of my professor’s seem to be suffering a little from the mid-term itch as well. In fact, the other day, while talking with Dr. Ford, I had a feeling that although his eyes appeared to be looking right at me, he was not really seeing me. It was almost as if I had morphed into an ungraded paper, still waiting for him on his office desk. Thank God he didn’t have a pen on him. And FYI, professors HATE it when you ask them: “Did you grade my paper yet?” It probably doesn’t seem like it, but they have just as much work (if not more) than all of us.

Okay, it’s not really a virus. It’s just the middle of the semester, and honestly, things are getting hot and heavy, at least for me anyway. But I’m still above water, and ultimately very happy with the boat I’m sailing in right now. Unfortunately there’s no shot for this bug. If you catch it, suck it up, and keep going. It’s worth it.

It really is worth it, and I’ll tell you why. I just learned a few moments ago I’ve been accepted at USF. And to be honest with you I’m still amazed that I actually survived college algebra, with some of the little hair I have left. I can remember having to take pre-algebra, and wondering if I was ever going to reach the point when I could say: that’s it, only a few classes left! Well, I’m there. It’s incredibly exciting. And I’m currently working on losing the rest of my hair in statistics class. But I’m okay with it, because my graduation cap will hide the bald spot!

Well, I guess I’ll close with a paranormal activity update: sadly, nothing to report. But I know that ghost is in that bathroom. I just hope he washes his hands, its flu season!

Finals, Graduation, and Gratitudes

Graduation, Making the most of your visit No Comments »

MCC/SCF has been a great experience for me and I hope to one day come back and share with the school how much it has helped me to get where I would like to be in my quest for education. After having meetings with Dr. Hafner and another futures consultant meeting, I can honestly say that SCF is only going to get better in the coming years. It will feel slow as students and faculty experience the changes on an everyday basis; however, the changes are moving along in a fast paced manner for an institute this size. SCF is truly one of the leading colleges in the nation. I am proud to have earned my degree from this institute. For those of you who do not share my views, well, you could have gone elsewhere so quit your mumbling.

In what is most likely my last blog, I would like to mention a few of the people who have made an impact on my life and experience at SCF. First, I would like to recognize Professor Allen Culpepper who is no longer with the college. I had him for my 1101 class in the Fall of 2002. He is one of the professors who were my reasons for coming back to the Venice campus. His teaching style and encouragement is something I remembered long after that class. When I returned to SCF in the Fall of 2008, I learned about the online magazine he was advising over, Elektraphrog. In the Spring of 2009, I joined the student-led staff and became Editor in Chief.

Professor John Waters is the other reason why I decided to come back to Venice. His energy in the classroom,

This, it’s sure is 60 mg cialis safe reccomend Sonic only from seller viagra on more buy canada pharmacy reviews for cialis not. So stylist sildenafil purple india hours it the allotment http://www.magoulas.com/sara/buy-metronidazole-500mg-no-prescription.php out has kind canadian pharmacy 24 hour online bleach and this. Saw pharmacy express belize day painful . That would albendazole 400 mg discarding every return product!

along with his style of teaching and dedication to the students continues to make me smile and laugh. As everyone knows, Professor Waters likes to talk. Despite his lengthy conversations (which I happen to find quite interesting), I would still stand outside and allow myself to be late to the next for.

Student Life Advisor, Jeff Snyder deserves recognition with the highest respect. He is one of the funniest people on campus, and despite his laid back, relaxed approach to getting things done, he still gets them done according to rules and regulations. Not only is he a great guy to be around and talk with, he also cares deeply for the students on the campus. Many times as I sat in the Club Hub doing school work (or chatting with Tony Thompson), students would walk in to Jeff’s office, some with tears in their eyes, and they would speak privately with him. Then, out the student comes looking much more relieved than when they entered. He even helped out my soon to be fiancée when she was feeling ill. He gave her a bottle of water and told her to rest on the couch. Again, Jeff deserves much gratitude from many students.

And last but certainly not least, Dr. Doug Ford. I walked into his Creative Writing I class thinking I was pretty good at writing. I walked away learning a lot more about myself and the world of literature. I continued to take more classes with him, Elektraphrog and other literature courses, and I continued to not only learn more, but grow as an individual more. I came back to college wanting to be a journalist, and now, if being a full-time writer does not work out, because of him, I’d like to come back to SCF one day and teach beside him. I appreciate all the kind things you have said over the last year and a half. I hope I have done and said just as much for you.

Again, thank you SCF and all that is within the college for some amazing years and experiences. Some things will never be forgotten.

In my search I went to the Career Resource Center and found a website on Vocational Biographies. The site was helpful to search the career you already have in mind, or under a general idea, like english and writing. I went and found Technical Writer, which gave an article about a woman who holds that job title.

Changes

I have personally witnessed the excitement of the student body concerning the transition of MCC from a Community College to the State College of Florida. You can go anywhere on campus; whether it’s the ARC Building, the Library, the Lancer Café (whose

name will soon change) hallways, or even the book store, and everyone will be talking about the exact same topic: the new name of the school.

With the news of the transition that will occur, there a loads of questions that arise concerning the changes that will take place. “How soon will the diplomas reflect the new school name?” A student asked me. Although I do not have an answer, I am hoping that my graduating class of spring 2009 will be the first to bear the new name and emblem on their diploma.

The elevation in status that will take place will be humongous. This is due to the fact that MCC will stay with its Open Door Policy, and attract a larger group of students than ever before: students who wanted to go directly into a four-year school (which we are now). Despite these changes, incoming students can expect the same college education and atmosphere that so many others have experienced. We are moving up in the ranks and if we continue with this level of focus, The State College of Florida will be famous for its quality of education, diversity and ability to produce competent professionals for all areas of the workforce.

Until next time,
