Who Has Their Lives More Figured Out?

0

Whether you’re scrambling to order your cap and gown or still trying to figure out if your professor is out to get you, chances are we all have something to stress about this time of year.

It’s time to find out just how different (or similar) freshmen and seniors are when it comes to school. It’s the battle of the classes! Who will come out on top?

THE FRESHMAN:
Michelle Silverio, social work

How’s school going so far?
It’s going pretty good. I’m adjusting well—better than I thought I was going to. Because I’ve been living on campus, it’s been easier to transition.

How much of what you’re studying right now do you think you’ll use in your future career?
Everything I’m studying right now is going to go towards my career.

How do you prepare for you exams?
I study the night before and I just pretty much cram everything in.

What’s the hardest part about college?
I think that hardest part is not being able to see my family everyday because I’m a family-oriented person. Also, just adjusting to the times, like having to wake up at different times of the day.

Do you know what you want to do after graduation?
I think I’m going to go to grad school but I don’t know yet.

THE SENIOR:
Erica Lang, journalism

How’s school going so far?
It’s going very well. It’s been a very busy semester and I’m excited to graduate in May of 2016.

How much of what you’re studying right now do you think you’ll use in your future career?
I think I definitely learned a lot within academia, but [during]college as a whole I’ve defi nitely learned different lessons outside of the school walls that I think will contribute to my future career.

How do you prepare for you exams?
Well, in journalism it’s less about an actual Scantron test and more about projects and teamwork, and brainstorming different story ideas and being innovative. When it did come to testing in my earlier years at the university, for me it was just finding a quiet space.

What’s the hardest part about college?
I think to some extent high schools try to prepare you for the academic side of college but I don’t think you can ever be fully prepared for the different experiences that you’re going to have in four years.

Do you know what you want to do after graduation?
I’m keeping my options open. I’m hoping to fi nd something that will allow me to continue utilizing both the skills that I have learned and developed here and those that I have found an interest in. I’m hoping, perhaps, somewhere in video. A lot of places, like newspapers, are wanting to improve their video content, so maybe that would work.
