We are putting the finishing touches on our tri-fold that will make its debute at Discovery Day coming up in the 20th. All the bloggers are very excited to meet everyone (make sure you stop by our booth…we have TONS of candy!) Please feel free to ask us about anything! We would nothing more for to share our experiences, thoughts, and opinions with you guys. If nothing else, please visit and explore our campus. Keep in mind you’re not the only one who’s nervous and/or excited to be here. Chances are the person you sit next to is feeling the same way. For me, it helped when I made a few friends to stick together for the day. One thing I greatly remember is stopping by the Physical Therapy booth and eyeing the coolest “bone” pen ever made. That’s one booth I recommend you stop by. You’ll recieve a copy of this years Student Handbook. They’re kinda interesting to look at just to see what our school expects from the student body. I hope you enjoy your visit and hopefully I will see you there.
The big talk around campus is Saturday’s game against Georgetown. We were tied with them just about the entire game. The last few minutes were crucial. Just 5 points behind GC so Coach Bland had to act quick. We headed to make the winning touchdown within seconds of the buzzer when one of the GC players intercepted the ball to keep us from scoring. Tough loss but we’re hoping we’ll see them again in the playoffs for the MSC title.
One thing I didn’t know about convocation is you will receive a grade for your attendance. Good thing I went to a few! 4 attendances=A, 3=B, 2=C, 0-1=F. I hope you remember this for a heads-up next year. Class attendances can majorly affect your grade. It’s vital you attend your classes regularly. It’s fine to miss a few but you only get 9 absences for a class that meets 3 times a week and 6 for classes that meet 2 times a week. My advice would be keeping up with how many absences you have in all your classes. Professors do not take kindly to “irregular students.”
If you haven’t signed up for Discovery Day, it’s not too late! http://www.ucumberlands.edu/admissions/discovery/
