Four Important Schedule Planner Tips for Registering Students

Ms. Manon Shockey, the Assistant Director of Academic Advising Services at Tarleton State University, has suggestions for students registering for classes this semester!

Here are her suggestions:

#1 - Make sure you designate the correct campus and uncheck all the others.
#2 - If you are not comfortable with short term courses, check only the 16 week option under Term.
#3 - Do not set too many personal parameters or it may not pull up any viable options.
#4 - Use the Options menu next to each class to narrow down classes by preferred times, days for lab, etc.


Sincerely,

Traveling Internationally


Traveling internationally is something common among college students. At some time or another, you may come across the opportunity to travel either for class credit or just for vacation. There are a lot of things to know before going off to a new country.  Here are a few tips for your adventures abroad:

  • Research where you're going- It is important to get to know about your host country before arriving. Brushing up on the language is also not a bad idea either. This way, you will know what to expect upon arrival, and you can exchange some words with the locals. 
  • Make a packing list far in advance- If you are spending a long period abroad then make sure you have refills for things that could run out such as medicine or contacts. You also want to make sure you have time to get everything you think you will need. Did you put your winter clothes in storage but are traveling to the cold? Make sure you have time to gather everything.
  • Scan all important documents you may need- You never know when you may need a copy of your birth certificate but it is back home. Having an extra either physical copy, or copy on your laptop or tablet does not hurt. 
  • Research Apps used in the country you're traveling to- WhatsApp and Viber are two apps that you can download and use to connect with other people via WiFi. If you do not want to pay for a phone plan in another country, this would be the way to go and all you would need is an internet connection. 
  • Take advantage of every opportunity even if it means skipping a nap- There is so much to do and so little time. Take advantage of every opportunity! 
  • Take is all in, but also find that balance to document everything- You want to make sure you take enough pictures for memories, but you also want to make sure you enjoy the moment! You want to remember that feeling forever!  
Don't forget to check resources around your school! University libraries often have lots of travel resources and even technology to rent to document your trip! Also, don't forget to take advantage of the prep courses from your universities Study abroad office. 

Safe Travels!
