An Active Knight

Time for a Farewell

by Joshua | May 17, 2012

Well friends, this has truly been an exciting journey.  These four years have been I’d say the best four years of my life. Lynn has given me countless opportunities to grow as a person and push my skills to the limits.  This blog is by far the hardest blog to write just because there are absolutely no words to describe these past four years.  For my fellow continuous readers most of you know as I  had mentioned one of my first few blog posts how I was a shy person.  That has changed.

For those potential students looking at universities and happen to come across this blog take the time to read some of my  past blog posts of my journey.  Being that Lynn is a small university you get the chance to meet and introduce yourself to many to people.  What I had noticed here at Lynn it is a great networking tool to be involved within the university in knowing people.  When I was looking for internships this past semester just because I knew someone it helped me get my foot in the door to that internship and get an interview then finding out that I had received that position.

When looking for schools I thought Lynn was the best fit for me because of the small atmosphere, small classes, teacher to student relationship and of course the weather! Who wouldn’t want to go to school in the best weather for four years!  This past saturday on the 12th was graduation.  Graduation is always bittersweet because you have to say goodbye to all your friends for a while but it is also celebrating your accomplishments in the past four years.

The next chapter in life is going to be a bit scary but I know that as I hunt for jobs my friends and family will be supporting me a long the way with what ever opportunity comes a long my way.

This blogging experience was a great opportunity meeting new faces within the marketing department and getting to expand my writing.

Here are a few tips that got me through my four years at Lynn-

1- Join clubs and organizations that interest you

2- When you join those clubs start to be outgoing because it can help you in the long run

3- And then last but not least having a good group of friends that will eventually become your family after college

Well readers hope you enjoyed my last blog this was a great experience!

Check it Out!

by Joshua | May 5, 2012

So I think everyone should check out this final Beyond the Brief of the year not only because my news segment is featured in it but because Arianna and Ricky do an amazing job on this!

Beyond the Brief like the iPulse newspaper takes a lot of time and effort and being apart of each of them has shown me their hard work and dedication to what they do.

So here it is and enjoy!

It’s all over till Graduation!

by Joshua | May 3, 2012

Well today was my last day of finals, which means that I have officially completed my undergraduate career.  It is somewhat of a scary thought.  No more sitting in a class room, no more required tests or presentations, its time for real life.  Now all the tests and presentations I will be doing are for the real world, where ever life will take me.

Almost time

by Joshua | April 25, 2012

The time has almost come to walk the stage. It is starting to become more and more of a realization to me.  Come May 12th, 2012 at 10am it will all be over and time to go to the real world.

Seeing and typing these words out is a hard subject to know that my undergrad will officially be over.  For those having difficulty in looking for jobs there are multiple websites that are extremely helpful and easy to use.

These websites inclue, Monster, CareerBuilders or even craigslist to name a few.  Also utilize the help of the Career Center Services located on the side of Trinity Residence Hall. 

I can’t believe I only have 5 more days left with my internship here at United Way and I can’t believe graduation is just 17 days. 

For summer my plans are to relax, continue looking for jobs and I will be working at Pine Tree Camps ‘Kampus Kampers’ here at Lynn, so even though I will be gradauting I will still be at Lynn for the summer and then after that time for work. 

These past four years have been a great experience being able to have work-study and work in various departments on campus has made me be able to meet amazing people, being active in greek life and different clubs and organizations has helped me with multiple leadership opportunities that I know will help me later on in life.

Well as time comes closer to graduation there is a few more events that I will be posting about so stay tuned!

Relay for Life 2012

by Joshua | April 10, 2012

This Friday April, 13th starting at 5pm for Opening Ceremonies is Lynn’s Annual Relay for Life.  Relay is a huge part in my life because I love to volunteer and also I support friends and families who have suffered and or survived with cancer.

In the past I have been involved just by being a member of a team, but last year I had joined the committee being an accounting and registration chair.  This year I am involved with the Luminaria Ceremony on the Relay Committee.  This years theme is the Olympics.

Being the Luminaria position I took the task in helping sell Relay for Life shirts in the cafeteria and then during Relay set up the ceremony and give a speech.

So if you are supporting your Mother, Father, Brother, Sister, Spouse, Grandparents, Uncle or Aunt or any one else, please come to the Intramural field for Relay for Life!

Today from 4-7pm at Chili’s by the Town Center mall 10% of your bill will go to the American Cancer Society Lynn’s Relay for Life.

ASWER2!

by Joshua | March 29, 2012

Well some of  you might be wondering what is the ASWER2!  It is admissions Admitted Students Weekend Experience Round 2!

This year there is about 90 students coming for the experience.  It is great that admissions came up with this initiative because it gives potential incoming students a chance to see what Lynn is really like and get to experience faculty and staff at first hand.

They even get a chance to register for fall semester classes early! Now what can get better then that!

I am hosting one student for this weekend and am looking forward to this experience because I couldn’t get to do it last year.  It is a great way to meet new faces and get the opportunity to help with making that persons decision in coming to a school for the greatest four years of their life!

Senior Salute!

by Joshua | March 14, 2012

Well it is that time of year to start thinking or have already thought of what you want to do with your life.  Today and tomorrow from 11-7pm is senior salute in the green center!

This is extremely important where you receive your caps and gowns, graduation information and of course your graduation tickets!

It still amazes me that graduation is only less then 2 months away time is flying by.  So if you haven’t done something that you wanted to try do it now before time is too late!

Remember don’t forget to go to Senior Salute!

Spring Break 2012!

by Joshua | March 5, 2012

I hope everyone at Lynn and anywhere else that is on Spring Break is enjoying there week off!

My Spring Break is extremely relaxing,  so far I have just been hanging out with my friends.  But today I am back at my internship for my normal work hours!

I figured working at my internship would give me something to do for the week so I would not completely be going crazy with nothing to do even having a car. There are many movies also coming out this week so it is never too late or early to see a movie.

I just recently saw The Lorax and it was a great animated fun filled movie, which I think everyone should go see!

Well thats all for now and I hope everyone enjoys there relaxing spring break because I know I am!
