My favorite part about campus life during the spring time has to be our softball games. Because of my hectic schedule, I can never enjoy the games during the week but I look forward to attending them on the weekends.Having the wind blow in your hair and eating a ice cream cone while watching the game is very peaceful. It's always fun to grab a few of your friends to attend the game but it can also be fun even if you attend the game by yourself. You'll end up finding someone that you know in the crowd or become friends with a stranger because we are all there for one reason and that's to cheer on our Jags!

One of the most difficult aspects of attending college to me thus far is procrastination. There were times where I would put off studying for a quiz to enjoy my personal hobbies or to hang out with friends. It seems like they always want to go on the most exciting adventures the weekend you have to study for an exam. But staying focused along with time management has been the two key factors that has helped me along the way. Whenever my professors assign homework I'll complete it the day of and I will study my lecture notes daily to make sure I don't fall behind. By studying my notes daily, I don't have to cram when the time comes to study for exams. Without time management, you will not be able to fully enjoy every aspect of the college experience.

Not only is making your final college decision a tough choice, but what you would like to major in can be a tough one as well. Growing up we always fantasize about being doctors, teachers, lawyers, or maybe even a painter, but as we enter high school those dreams tend to change. A lot of things may influence our choice of career such as our teachers, family members, favorite TV shows, and many other factors. One reason for Information Technology being my major is the influence of my favorite family member. My cousin Anthony has a very successful IT career in the Air Force and I have always admired him and his success. As I was growing up he would teach me little things here and there about computers and how they operate. With the help of Anthony and my own research on what type of careers I could have with an IT major, I knew that I was making the right choice. I really enjoy my major and I'm just as in love with my minor, Criminal Justice, as well. If you are having a difficult time trying to decide what to major in, don't stress it. Think about your passions or maybe complete a career aptitude test. Overall just make sure that it's something that you want to do and that you would enjoy to the fullest!
