Quarter or Semester

November 27th, 2007 by under Uncategorized. No Comments.

Here at Smith, we take two types of classes, those that last for an entire semester and those that last for just half a semester.  This is great because we get the opportunity to take more classes, but it can pose a challenge, because it results in a constant flow of deliverables.  Its probably more real-world like doing it this way, considering in most jobs you are constantly working.  It can be quite taxing though, as “midterms” come 3 times a semester, and “finals” twice.  Overall, it forces you to keep up, because with the pace that we go here at Smith, there is little time to catch up.

Distractions

November 12th, 2007 by under Uncategorized. No Comments.

Oftentimes in business school, its easy to get caught up in school work, or group meetings, or even school organization events.  The pressures on your time can make finding distractions challenging.  But  just like in the working environment, finding time to “get away” is important.  Fortunately, both UMD and the DC area offer lots of opportunities to forget school work for awhile.  Personally I’ve opted for UMD sporting events, attending a few football and basketball games, and exploring some of DC’s attractions.  Whatever your interests there are things around here to do, and that’s a great way to help keep your sanity.
