On Friday, March 20th, about 100 students were inducted to Phi Theta Kappa, which is an international honor society for two year colleges. I was lucky enough to be invited, to be part of this ceremony, and pledge into the group. Here we learned the history of Phi Theta Kappa, and what it means to be part of the group. Being part of Phi Theta Kappa is like being part of a new family, and I look forward to doing service with my fellow partners. I would like to say congratulations to all the other inductees of Phi Theta Kappa. I am excited to start a new chapter with everyone in PTK history.
What’s that you say? Time Travel? Why yes! It is this years theme for Spring Fling 2015!

It might have been the official first day of Spring, but it doesn’t really feel much different for us Floridians. However, what Spring means to us right now are fairly clear days, where it’s actually not too hot and humid! So definitely take advantage of what the weather is now, I’m sure it won’t last for long!
Be sure to check your SCF student e-mails as frequently as possible. There could be very important, and exciting things in your inbox. Phi Theta Kappa sent an e-mail to students who qualify to join. Most people did not know they had been invited because they never check their emails. It is not too late to sign up, if you were one of the people to be invited to join. Who knows what else could be in your inbox! Take a look. By the way, if you forgot how to get into your e-mail, simply log into your SCFconnect account and hit “e-mail” on the top, left, part of your screen.
Here’s the link to SCFconnect to get you started: https://portal.scf.edu/cp/home/displaylogin
Things are not easy sometimes, and this can be very frustrating. Don’t stress yourself out though. If you find yourself on the verge of breaking down, take a break. Ten minutes to relax will make you feel so much better. If you’re feeling really stressed out, take a whole day off! Saturday’s are perfect days to hit up the beach, or take advantage of the beautiful weather. Whatever you need to do to put your mind at ease, do it. You’ll probably end up working better with a clear head; I know I do.
In case you needed any more convincing, here’s a picture of my stress free day.
Don’t forget! We are on all social media sites. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and my favorite, Instagram! We post daily. So check us out. Usernames and links below!

I was very eager to start doing something in my career interest, and the career resource center (CRC) made this possible. In my first year of the Fall semester, I was introduced to the CRC. They told me how they could help with resumes, looking for work, and gave me a lot of information. In the Spring semester the CRC sent out an e-mail from the creative services and marketing department, saying they were looking for social media marketing interns. HELLO! I love social media, and marketing is the field I would love to get into. I immediately jumped on this opportunity, and the CRC did not fail to help me earn the position. A few interviews and signatures later, I got the call that I had earned the position. Now, here I am, at work, telling you the CRC could do the same thing for you. Take advantage of your SCF resources and get started on your career. You can do it!

Head’s up studends! I have some inside information on how to get you some free money! Well, you have to do a little work but it’s worth it! If you follow SCF twitter (SCFnow), Facebook/statecollegeofflorida or have even been on the SCF main website, you may have noticed this is the last week to apply for scholorships $ for the 2015-2016 academic year. I already filled out mine because all it takes is three simple steps.
The first is to apply to attend State College of Florida. This step is easy if your already a student because you can skip it!
Second, you will apply for an SCF Foundation Scholorship at scffoundation.net. All you have to do is fill out one form on the website and the system will match you to over 100+ scholorships based on your answers. Isn’t that awesome?
The last step is to complete the FAFSA (free aplication for federal student aid) form at fafsa.ed.gov and your all set to get some free money!
Sometimes life gets so busy and it feels like one thing after another. Then your professor hits you with a test. You are probably accepting the fact that there is way too much to do, and sitting down to study will be a negative. Well, have no fear. I have found the perfect studying site. If you have not already heard of it, it is called Quizlet. You can make your own flashcards online, and then Quizlet will help you study them. There are many ways they help you study your own material. But wait! There’s more! (Infomercial guy voice) You can also view other people’s flashcards. I sometimes find flashcards on the same exact material, and this saves me the hassle of having to do them myself. I love Quizlet! Check it out, if haven’t already.

Managing school is hard enough, but adding a job on top of that? It can get super difficult. Especially when you have school during the day and a job at night and the weekends. You easily run out of time for anything else. But listen to yourself, if you’re getting too overwhelmed, take a break. It’s better to take small breaks when you need them, than let the stress build up until you can’t handle anything anymore. Just be kind to yourself!
