The major I have chosen

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Despite my desire to work with genetics and lab work, I have decided that Accounting would be a better major because of the experience I have gained in this particular field.

What would I change about QC

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

I would definitelly change a few things about Queens College, one of them being the high tuition they charge the students. I’m often thinking about how much I have to pay and the many times I had to drop out just because I couldn’t afford it anymore. At the time I was not eligible for financial aid because my […]

College ratings

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

I really don’t give much importance to college ratings because even if I did, I’m sure I would never be able to afford an Ivy League institution for myself or my children.

College Sororities Stereotypes

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

This video is a joke about what sororities are supposed to be like. I don’t see many cheerleaders at QC, but I’ve seen pamphlets about joining the sorority (can’t remember what is called) all over the college walls. I’ve seen videos of how some of these sororities initiate their pledges and to me it’s just […]

Dad & daughter college visit

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012 I chose this video because it portrays the all “American college”  lots of cheerleaders, lots of jocks, huge campus, lots of lawn to sit on… and of course, a father trying to convince his daughter to attend his college, or at least trying to her excited about college. At the end of the video, […]
