Paul's Tip of the Week: Domestic Exchange

Have you ever thought about studying at a different school or college? Want a new experience and new opportunities that you just cannot get at UMass? Don't really want to leave the country to do all of this? Our Domestic Exchange program could be a great fit for you!

One of the many perks of going to UMass Amherst is our National Student Exchange program where you can study at another college/university in the country for a semester or a year. With over 180 universities and colleges in 48 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Domestic Exchange gives you an opportunity to explore a new place, culture, and education.

My friend Erika spent last Spring at the University of New Mexico on Domestic Exchange. She loved it. Here's what she had to say about it:

"Taking a semester away from UMass and traveling to New Mexico gave me a chance to experience a whole different culture, right in my own country. I really fell in love with the beautiful surroundings, made great friends from around the U.S., and got to take advantage of the excellent anthropology department at UNM Albuquerque. I'd recommend Domestic Exchange to anyone who wants a fresh perspective on their country and their education, and to anyone looking for an amazing adventure!"

So, what are you waiting for? Start planning your Domestic Exchange today!

Start exploring schools


attend an info session in 613 Goodell Wednesdays at 4:45 or Thursdays/Fridays at 2:30 to learn more!

It's never a bad idea to start planning early to learn a little bit more about the application process and various deadlines. And remember, something programs like NSE and Study Abroad all have in common is that they check your Dean of Students Office Behavioral Record. Don't forgot to keep up the good behavior!

Jennie's Tip of the Week: Get Involved on Campus!

All students are told that the most important thing in college is academics.  Although academics are the MOST important aspect, they are not the ONLY important part of college.  College is all about finding a balance between doing well in school and juggling other activities that will brighten up your day.  Staying involved and meeting new people allows you to find your place on campus and find people who enjoy the same things you do.  This broadens your sense of community and will make your time here so much more enjoyable.

In high school it is easy to find out which activities are offered.  Most people know when soccer tryouts are or when auditions for the school musical roll around, but college is very different and students must take the initiative to look for clubs to join on their own.  Sometimes students feel overwhelmed by the intimidating amount of choices.  Others are not sure where to look for information about different organizations or how to actually join those groups.  Luckily, UMass has created an easy-to-use network called Campus Pulse (Click Here to go to this page).  Campus Pulse lists every registered student organization (RSO) this campus has to offer, and each organization keeps their page updated with a statement about themselves/their purpose as well as how to get in contact with members of that group.  It is almost never too late to join a group, so get in touch with them and get the details!  Even if you are hesitant, go to a meeting or two and figure out how you feel and what you like.  It never hurts to look into something that might interest you.

Many students do not get involved right away, but eventually everyone starts to crave something more; we begin to crave something that will keep us busy and introduce us to a new group of people.  In my own experience, joining an RSO has been the best decision I've ever made in college.  It provides me with opportunities such as holding a position on the executive board of my organization, chances to participate in philanthropic events, life skills, problem solving skills and friends that will last a lifetime.  I only wish I had gotten involved sooner!

With all this campus has to offer, there is something for everyone.  So get out there!  Express your musical talents, your love of snowboarding, your passion for philanthropy - whatever makes you happy! Check out Campus Pulse, read the descriptions, look into multiple organizations and find one or two that are right for you.

Majors, Majors EVERYWHERE!

Have you not yet declared a major at UMass?  Or, if you have one, is it still a good fit for you?  Or perhaps does it leave you plenty of time to complete a double major or a minor?

In one week, you'll have a once-a-year opportunity to meet with representatives from ALL majors at UMass, in one place, at one time.  The Majors Fair is popular with students, as THE moment to gather information about academic programs and other opportunities to round out your degree.

Here's what you can do, at the Majors Fair:

  • Ask about a potential major, minor or certificate;
  • Ask about what courses would be a good introduction to a field;
  • Ask about internship, grad school, research, and employment prospects with a particular major;  
  • Chat with faculty and student representatives about their experience in the department.
Don't miss it!

Liz's Tip of the Week: Staying Healthy on Campus

Since we've completed about 6-7 weeks of classes, and mid-terms are still popping up, between studying, classes, jobs, homework, meetings, and of course your social life, it's easy to forget about maintaining your health. Though it's easy to forget, or put on the back-burner, maintaining your health will benefit you now, and help you establish healthy habits that will stay with you for life. Here are some easy tips to staying healthy and happy while you're at UMass.

1. Now this may be obvious, but eating healthy is beneficial for your energy levels, boosting your immune system, and improving your overall health. This of course becomes a challenge when it's possible to survive off a strict diet of pizza and french fries, however there are a few choices you can make to improve your diet. The first would be to make sure you eat breakfast each morning. This may be difficult as your running out the door to make it to your 8 am class on time, but snacks like granola and bananas go along way in providing you energy for your morning, and preventing you from overeating later in the day. Another tip would be to try healthier alternatives to your favorite midnight snacks. Opt for veggie pizza on whole-wheat crust when you and your roommate decide to order in for the night, and keep some healthy, filling snacks in your fridge for those late night study sessions.

2. With such a beautiful recreation center on campus, it's easy to find motivation to exercise throughout the week. Our class schedules can all get a little crazy, but sneaking in a quick jog and ab-workout between your classes can help give you a mid-day energy boost of energy, and help you focus better later on when you're taking notes in lecture. Working out alone not your thing? Check out the Group Fitness Schedule, and find a class that will work best for you.

3. Get some sleep! I know that you just had to stay up all of Sunday night to watch the Breaking Bad finale twice in a row, make sure not to make it a habit to stay up all night! Sleep deprivation can lead to reduced brain function, fatigue, headaches and weight loss or gain. We need about 7-9 hours of sleep a night, and getting this amount will improve your overall health. If you don't get enough sleep at night, take an afternoon nap. Be careful with naps though, they shouldn't be longer than 45 minutes, or your body enters the REM cycle of sleep, and waking up in the middle of it will make you feel even more tired then you were before the nap!

4. Wash your hands and get a flu shot! Flu season is upon us, and it is of the utmost importance to maintain your healthy habits to keep from getting sick. Washing your hands with soap and warm water is one of the easiest ways to prevent the flu (you and your roommate will be grateful!) Also University Health Services offers flu clinics, both at UHS, and all over campus for their mobil flu clinic days! Check out the schedule here!

5. Last but certainly not least, I think it's most important to remember to keep your brain healthy too! College is an exciting experience, but it can get stressful. The Center for Counseling and Psychological Health (CCPH) on campus is located in Hills North, and can help students with a variety of issues through its multitude of services. A consultation appointment is always free, and from there your clinician will help you come up with your best options that will help you the most. This could include short-term services with CCPH, group therapy, or perhaps a recommendation for longer-term service with a provider in the Amherst community. There's no shame in reaching out to get the best help for your situation, and as their website says "We all need a little help along the way!" Take advantage of their help, and always remember that you, and your should always health come first.

Mid-Semester Deadline

Thursday, October 17, at 5:00 pm is the mid-semester date! This is the deadline to drop a class with a "W" or elect to take a course Pass/Fail.

If you miss this deadline, you will have to petition for a late drop and your request is not guaranteed.


Celebrate The School of Computer Science

“Broadening the Impact of Computing”

Mark your calendar for this series of special events to celebrate the new School of Computer Science and the 50th year of Computer Science at UMass.

Thursday, October 17 through Saturday, October 19

"W" Drop and Pass/Fail deadline: THURS. 10/17

Thursday, October 17th is coming up! This is the deadline to drop a class with a "W" or elect to take a course Pass/Fail. Before you decide to do either, here are some things you need to know:

Dropping with a W isn't a bad thing. It will not count against you should you decide to apply for/declare a major (as long as you have completed all the pre-requisites, predictor courses, and any other requirements). Dropping a course at this point means a "W" will always remain on your transcript, but you will not receive a grade for that class, so the class will not affect your GPA. The W just indicates that you dropped a course after the Add/Drop deadline. You should consider withdrawing from a course with a "W" if you know that you are not doing well in it and there is little chance you can remedy that, especially if your intended major expects a strong cumulative GPA or specific grade in that class. Be careful though that you are not going below 12 credits (full-time) in doing so, as doing so could have an effect on your financial aid, insurance, etc.

There is actual paperwork required to withdraw from a course (you can't do it on SPIRE) and you will need your instructor's signature. So, don't wait until the day of the deadline to make your decision!

The mid-semester date is also your last chance to change a class to Pass/Fail grading. Rather than dropping a course from your schedule you can elect to remain in the class, but instead of getting a letter grade, your transcript will just indicate a P (if you pass) or an F (if you fail). A P will not affect your GPA, but an F will. If you're considering the P/F grading option, be careful! There are many things to consider before making this choice, including the fact that courses taken P/F may not count toward Gen Eds, major reqs, or predictor courses. Just like dropping with a W, electing to take a class P/F requires paperwork (but not an instructor's signature).

You should see your advisor soon if you're considering either taking a W or changing a course to P/F. You can pick up the necessary paperwork in Undergraduate Advising (if you're Undeclared) or the Registrar's Office in 213 Whitmore.

Gabby's Tip of the Week: Studying for Exams

Congratulations on already completing your first month at UMass! My name is Gabby and I, along with my three fellow peer advisors, will be writing weekly posts on how to have a successful and fun academic experience during your time in college.

Amherst is a truly beautiful place in Autumn! Now that the leaves are changing colors and cider doughnuts are making their way into grocery stores (and our stomachs), there are so many fun opportunities to take advantage of in the area.  Despite all of the loveliness that this season has to offer, it's unfortunately midterm exam time on campus. That's why this week I’ll give you five awesome tips on how to productively study for your exams while also finding time to relax and enjoy! 

Tip #1: Find a comfortable place
Who wants to study in an environment that they don't enjoy?  It's so important to be comfortable wherever you study. This could be your bedroom, the library (they have quiet and talking floors!), under a tree on campus, or even in a local cafe. Ask yourself what type of place works best for you--do you like some background noise, or do you need silence? What kind of lighting is best for your concentration? This is all important for your focus and attention, so explore different locations and figure out the best spot for your studying time!

Tip #2: Organize a schedule
Figuring out when to study is just as important as figuring out where to study. Use the planner that was given out to you and map out what days you can devote to studying. Most importantly, start studying early and don't wait until the night before. Studying at night can be difficult in itself because your brain is FULL from your day--studying the night before an exam is even worse! Pulling an all nighter or not getting enough sleep can only lead to worse habits and even worse exam grades. Organize your schedule to find conducive times for exam preparation.

Tip #3: Find habits that work
Everyone learns differently, so everyone also studies differently. Just like finding a comfortable place, find out how you study best. Do you work well studying in groups or individually? Some study techniques that work for me are making my own study guides, going over readings from class, having someone quiz me, and good ole' fashioned flashcards. 

Tip #4: Ask for help!
It's as simple as that. Remember to speak up in class with concerns, email professors with questions (not the night before!), and even visit your professor or TA during office hours to clarify anything that seems confusing. You have no reason to feel afraid or shy--professors won't bite you...I promise. Take advantage of the tutoring provided by the Learning Resource Center on the 10th floor of the library as well. 

Tip #5: Take breaks because you probably deserve it
Don't stress yourself out too much! Taking breaks to relax will probably help you study better and succeed! Use your breaks wisely--go to the gym, grab a pumpkin spice latte, meditate, call home, or take a power nap. After all that academic pressure, studying, and brain information overload, remember: you do you. 

And remember, The Academic Advising Link is open Sunday-Thursday 4-8pm! Peer Advisors will be there to answer your questions!

Also, check out Undergraduate Advising on facebook !

The Benefits of Declaring a Major

Choosing a major is one of the biggest decisions you make in college, but remember: people change their minds all the time. It's hard to know whether a major is right for you without trying it out, talking with professors, and taking upper-level classes. Many introductory level courses are taught in large lecture format and cover a broad range of topics. Upper-level courses usually have a narrower focus and can sometimes be smaller. Enrolling in upper-level courses is the best way to confirm your true interest in a subject you may currently be enjoying at the introductory level.

That being said, many departments restrict access to upper-level courses to declared majors only (Psychology, Economics, and Sociology are some examples, but there are many others). If you are considering a major that does this, now might be a good time to declare before registration begins for spring. Remember, you can always change your mind--if you decide to change your major at a later date, it may be possible to roll your initial declared major into a minor or certificate program, thereby broadening your degree. What's most important is making progress toward a degree and exploring the options you have so you can make an informed decision.

Now is a great time to talk to advisors before the registration rush begins! Make an appointment to discuss your interests, assess department restrictions, and decide if declaring a major before registration is right for you!
