My Thoughts:

 

I agree on the need for frequent communication with both the manager as well as other team members. Quite often the interns are left on their own and even weeks or a month can pass without serious guidance and feedback. The communication also has to be 2-way: listen and talk. In addition to the points laid out, I strongly believe in the growing demand for international experiences. The internationalization students (and employer) obtain from the relationship is mutually beneficial and often has a long term positive effect on future professional experiences. I agree with the author saying that internship means celebrating hard work and process of learning! It should be fun, but also hard!

My Thoughts:

As a student who was in a process of applying to colleges, I came across many challenging questions. For examples, which school to attend and which area to major in. I am absolutely sure 99.9% of high school juniors or seniors come across these questions. There are a number of things we need to look at before deciding where to attend, and that is not the end! We also need to know what to study. Unlike high school, we have to specialize in one or two areas.  In high school, we get to choose few elective classes, but most of our classes are chosen by school. Because we are so used to taking classes that our schools require, choosing our own classes become very difficult. Therefore, we need to know what exactly is a college major and take a significant period of time to consider which major will fit me the best.

How Social Media Can Enhance Study Abroad - WorldWise - The Chronicle of Higher Education

How Social Media Can Enhance Study Abroad - WorldWise - The Chronicle of Higher Education | My Goals through Scoop.it | Scoop.it

social media has hurt study abroad, in part prompted by a commentary in The Chronicle.While I agree that technology has changed the way we look at study abroad and the way students interact while overseas, I don’t agree that it will lead to fewer cultural or transformative experiences for students while abroad.

Jisoo's insight:

My Thoughts:

I definitely think that social media is beneficial to anyone who studies abroad. Because social media makes it easy for everyone to interact with anyone/anywhere around the world, some might think actually going abroad is unnecessary. But, I cannot agree with that. Looking up on the Internet and actually experiencing it and seeing it with your own eyes are VERY DIFFERENT. Instead, we can use social media to enhance the quality of study abroad. If a student is studying abroad, he/she can keep in touch with his family and friends by using social network. It will definitely decrease his stress. In addition, he then can use it to connect to the friends he made abroad and collaborate on group projects. Some social media/network is universal. For example, Facebook is used in a number of countries. I personally know few people who studied abroad and they all told me that Facebook was absolutely essential while they were studying in Korea. The students there used Facebook to communicate about their homework, projects, or just daily lives. Without social media, it would be hard for people to study abroad. Therefore I cannot agree that social media has hurt study abroad.

CampusGrotto - Benefits of going to a Private College

CampusGrotto - Benefits of going to a Private College | My Goals through Scoop.it | Scoop.it

The Pros and Cons of attending a Private College.

 

My Thoughts:

 

         During my college search, a few private universities caught my eye. I realized that they had a different experience to offer than a public university would so I wanted to look more in depth. I found out that private universities have more of a competitive admission process. You need to stand out more than other students, and most private universities have lower acceptance rates than those of a public school. Also a private university will always have a much more expensive cost of tuition, which isn't a good thing. I don't want to get out of college with a lot of debt, so I am leaning more towards a public university. However, a private university has a larger staff to student ratio which means that the professors can have more one on one time with their students. This is something I would benefit from, but the question is, is the extra money worth the smaller amount of students? I don't think it is and that is why I will be leaning towards a public university.

My thoughts:

 

This article has same reasons why I chose to go to a private school.

I tend to focus/study well with a small class size. Therefore I chose Chapman University over University of Washington. Chapman has much smaller class sizes compared to UW. Since classes are small, you get better connections with your professors and with your classmates.

However there are significant disadvantages of going to a private school. Going to a private school costs much more than going to a public school. For example, Chapman costs about $58,000 a year while UW only costs the half, about $28,000. I see many of my friends choosing to go to University of Washington because of relatively cheap tuition. You also need to realize that

Credits may not transfer. Knowing this I didn’t do running start in my high school years.There are advantages and disadvantages to everything. I chose to attend a private school because I love the settings that only private schools can provide you.

My Thoughts:

 

I have always wanted to study abroad when I am in college ever since I moved back to America. It was because I missed Korea and always wanted to try living as an ordinary Korean student. However, now I know many more reasons I should to study aborad! Not only I can study in my motherland, but I also can develop global perspective, learn Korean better, and build my independence. Even though I livd in Korea for 12 years and visit there every summer, I can't say I know everything about Korea. Spending a semester or 2 semesters in Korea, I will have an opportunity to truly experience the culture, people, and everything. I believe that by studying abroad, I will have a dramastic change in my life.That is why I am so excited to experience it as soon as possible!

My Thoughts:

 

Most of my friends are currently admitted to univerisities, but do not know what they are going to major in. As they are getting close to fall, which in their first semester will begin, they are getting more nervous and stressed about choosing a major. 

Attending events such as a Career Exploration Day will definitely help people who are undecided about which major to take! Since there are almost limitless choices, going somewhere to a realistic veiw of all the departments and meeting alunmni from each department will give people a much greater understanding about those departments.

I have chosen to major in Communication, and talking to an alumni who majored in communication studies definitely helped to choose this major.

If anyone is having trouble deciding what to major, he should definitely attend this kind of events!

My Thoughts:

 

I actually never knew hiring college students would benefit companies, since most of college students are not trained/experienced as much. It is interesting to find some benefits that companies get from offering internship for college students, such as raising visibility of your company on campuses and gaining a year-round source of motivated potential employees. Students can gain meaningful and valuable experience from workforce. At the same time, compnanies can raise their popularity and create a proven way to recruit and evaluate future employees. It's a win-win system both! More companies should realize this and provide more spots for students, and more students should apply for available spots.
