GROW UP Taking control of your education with or without a counselor

f you are driven and determined to finish school, then taking charge of you education is simple. Here are four steps that COS counselors recommend you take, but remember counselors don’t always know best. Do the research and find out what courses you really need to take. (hint: follow the IGETC [p.3])

3. Speak to Your Academic Advisor or Counselor

1. Have the Right Attitude Taking charge of your education is not a skill that can be taught. It’s an attitude you must possess.

2. Follow Your Course Catalog The catalog contains all the information you need to know about which classes to take. Sometimes the catalog changes, so it’s important to follow the one you began with. For example, if you started school in the spring of 2008 follow that course catalog until you finish school.

Classes: COS also offers fun for your agenda Chris Young

B

The Campus

y now, you have probably visited a counselor, or at least looked at the catalog of classes, deciphering what classes are right for you. If you did look at the catalog of classes, you found out there are literally hundreds of classes to look at, and no obvious way to decide how to start. Trust me, it’s worth taking a while to look through it, maybe even an hour or two. Not only because the classes you pick are the ones you’ll be stuck

with all semester, but also because there are so many interesting courses available. Don’t believe me? Okay, well, for all of you general Ed folks, let’s take foreign language. Spanish, French, and Portuguese are offered. But if you’re like me, you’re not good with foreign languages, so what do you do? American Sign Language to the rescue! ASL counts towards your foreign language requirements. Okay, maybe you like your French class, and your real problem is finding a PE class where you do more than walk around a track for an hour. Guess

Even if you feel you already have a clear and conceptual plan, advisors and counselors can be a good sounding board and clear up any misconceptions that may hold you back.

4. Make Your Own Schedule Counselors usually put freshman into classes that they perceive to be best according to your major. But maybe put some flexibility in your schedule and have some fun.

what? There are classes ranging from Yoga to Sports Technique classes (such as Advanced Volleyball, Baseball, Tennis, etc.) and even a Backpacking class. Yes, you read correctly, a Backpacking class, where you go over how to take care of yourself in the wilderness. You’re even required to go on a backpacking trip. There’s even a multitude of courses designed with the handicapped in mind, from Seasonal Sports for the Disabled to Modified Self Defense. Want to dance? COS offers Jazz, Tap, Modern, even Ballet. If you desire to go into law enforcement COS offers classes on Juvenile Delinquency, Criminal Recognition, and another course called Terrorism and Freedom. Whether you enjoy Philosophy, Science, or Art, make sure you take a second look at the course list. Give a good look at all of the offered classes. I can guarantee that if you do, it will make your time at COS much more enjoyable.

ollege gives you the freedom to not show up to class, but don’t fall to the wayside because stress is taking over. Here are a few options to reduce stress and so you don’t screw up.

1. Excersize

2. Music

Exercise is one of the healthiest ways to blow off steam, but I doubt you will. Go ahead, disprove me. I’d like to see you try.

Music can help you to relieve stress and either calm you down or stimulate your mind as your situation warrants.

4. Eat Right

5. Easy Class 6. Get a Massage

Never leave home without something to eat. It’s common to head for the Pop Tarts but try for some fruit like a banana.

Go ahead and sign yourself up for a low risk class like an art class or anything you enjoy.

3. Organization Clutter causes stress. Many students live in a cluttered place and have cluttered study areas. This can have a negative effect on grades.

o you are in college now and in order to get the most out of your time here at COS you need to get involved in some way. Walking onto campus you may think nothing of importance or of interest goes on here, because of the large gray buildings and the rush of students going from class to class. But there is a whole lot here that most students have no clue about. Faculty, staff, and other students are going out of their way to create events and spaces on and off campus for you to enjoy. Including the COS Arts & Lectures series that goes on throughout the semester. Earth to you, good things do come out of Visalia and the valley and in fact groups of people are trying to make it a better place, through organizing events, creating spaces, and through relationships.

BOOKS, BOOKS, BOOKS! Alyssa Laurel The Campus

inding books for college can be both an expensive and annoying process. Looking for your textbook in great quality can often mean going beyond your budget. There are other options. Renting books is not as shady as it sounds. You don’t always need to buy a brand new book; used books work just fine. This list will hopefully help you make the best decision for within your budget.

1.

COS Bookstore on Campus: This is probably the most reliable place to get your books because it is on campus and you can physically get or order them yourself. There’s also a book-

one since all used copies were gone. The book I ordered from Amazon finally came. Half way through the summer.

Amazon.com: While Amazon seems to be the second most popular place to get your books, it’s not the best place that I would recommend. Of course, people sell used books for cheap, but sometimes those books don’t always come in on time. For the fall 2008 semester, I ordered a book for one of my classes and it never came. I let the seller know, and after multiple replies of saying she sent it, a book had yet to come. I needed the book to pass and ended up buying a brand new

Chegg.com: Chegg is an awesome way to go green while getting your books for school. For every book you rent or purchase from the site, they plant a tree! You can also sell your books on Chegg for site credit or cash. Each book has a specific rental fee, which is dependent on the ISBN. Shipping fees are dependent on the shipment method. Of all the websites to rent or buy books, I’m totally in favor of Chegg because of the cause they’ve chosen to support.

Friends/family members: You would be surprised how many of your friends or family have taken classes you’re enrolled in. Ask around, you’re bound to find a book from one of them, even if they’re just letting you borrow it for the semester. The library: Some books are on reserve in the library that you can photocopy. This is kind of risky, because a lot of times you get a time limit or the book is in use and you might not get what you need; but it’s a way for you to to get what you need for a tighter budget.


STAY HEALTHY Drew Reagan

The Campus

ne of the great benefits of being a student at COS is access to the Student Health Center. The Student Health Center, located in the Sycamore building next to the book store, often goes unnoticed by the majority of COS students. These unaware students are at a great loss. The Health Center provides many over the counter medications, such as Advil or Ibuprofen, to any COS student for free. All one must do is ask at the main desk then enter their Campus ID or Social Security number. Birth control pills and condoms are also freely available through the campus connections with Planned Parenthood. Most health consultations are free and no appointment is necessary. However, a fee is charged for pregnancy tests and hepatitis B shots.

Although the health center provides many free services to students, it does not provide health insurance. The health center can provide a great deal of information concerning outside available health plans upon request. Other services can also be discovered through just a simple request. Most students are unaware that massages are available on campus for a discounted student price. Free counseling services are also available, as well as quick medical checkups. Students should not hesitate from walking in to the small clinic at any time. As college students, it is important to take advantage of these services. As a commuter college, many students’ homes are far from school and some are responsible for homes of their own. With such responsibilities added upon ones education, life can easily become stressful

and hectic. It is important to take care of your body, physically and mentally, in order to be successful on or off campus.

Health Center Check List

• Over the counter medication available for free. • Birth control is available. • Obtain free condoms. • Massages at a discounted price for students are also optional. • Quick medical check ups. • Get information about health insurance plans. • No appointment necessary, just walk and give them your id number.

NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY!

BOB

needs a job

Chris Young The Campus

O

ne of the biggest problems facing college students, especially beginning college students, is finding a job. For example, Bob is a fresh-faced young student right out of high school. He likes to spend time with his friends, and is very involved in theatre. His girlfriend, Jane, is also attending the same college. This semester Bob decides he wants to take 16 units. He gets along well for the first half of the semester, does well in his classes, participates in a play for Drama, and spends time with his girlfriend. Soon though, he finds that he’s running low on cash, and his parents are refusing to give him more, insisting he gets a job. Bob thinks this will be an easy task, and tells himself that he’ll head out to pick up applications the next day. But then he starts to discover that getting a job isn’t so easy. His homework demands time, he has to practice for his play, his friends and girlfriend want to spend time with him, and he has hardly any time to pick up applications. Eventually he does end up

picking up a few applications, but even then, the companies never call back. With a wallet quickly emptying, and no jobs around, what is Bob to do? Well, luckily, COS has the answer. One day, while walking through the Sequoia Building, Bob sees a large panel that he’s never noticed before. The entire length of it is posted with bulletins, descriptions of jobs from businesses that need workers. Secretary positions, tutoring jobs, casino dealers, technician workers, even the guys that stand on street corners waving large signs. All you have to do is walk into room 106 (the room right next to the panel) and they’ll print out the information you need to contact the business and get your new job. In addition, all of the jobs given through COS give recommendations to the student applying, so you’ve got a good chance of getting the job you apply for. In a college lifestyle, jobs are difficult to find time for and nearly impossible to be accepted into. If you need help finding a job, the Career Center is a priceless resource.

ore and more, students are using websites like ratemyprofessor.com before signing up for a class. These sites may not give an exact description, but they can be a valuable tool in helping students decide which classes to take and which to avoid. The three main sites for helping decide classes are ratemyprofessor. com, pickaprof.com, and myspace. com’s Grade Your Professor feature. These sites contain information about different teachers and what to expect if a student chooses to take the class. Ratemyprofessor.com is the most student-friendly. Completely anonymously, students rate teachers in the categories of difficulty, helpfulness, clarity, the rater’s interest in the class, and the all-important “hot” category, in which students tell whether the teacher is visually appealing or not. COS has profiles for over 230 professors. While many teachers may not like this, students can also rate teachers on how often they use the textbook and if attendance is mandatory.

With Myspace’s Grade My Professor feature, users give the professor a letter grade in the categories of lectures, homework, tests, fairness, grading and accessibility. They are also allowed to leave their comments. It can be hard to navigate to, however, and you need an account to access it. On pickaprof.com also, users need an account to use the site, which features the professor’s actual grade history in easy-to-use bar graphs. As a bonus, professors are allowed to post syllabi and biographical information. Not only students use sites like these: Teachers appear to welcome the feedback they provide. COS professor Rebecca Griffith likes the fact that professors can use the site to see how they are doing. “I wish that there was this type of technology available when I was an undergrad. Instead we relied solely on word of mouth,” said Griffith.

Ways To Avoid The “Freshman Fifteen” Ashley Morrison The Campus

It’s no surprise that things change as you leave high school and enter COS. Classes become harder, your stress level increases, and, for many, your pant size may go up a few notches. With the late night coffee breaks and the fast food for lunch, it’s no surprise that you feel a bit flabby. Of course, with the cost of your classes and books, who has the money, yet alone the time, for a gym membership? If you can’t afford a gym membership and

want to avoid the “freshman fifteen,” you might want to try some easy home exercises to keep your tummy from turning into a flab of fat. To start, find a cardio exercise that you can easily do in 30 minutes before you eat in the morning, like a jog or a dive in the pool. Cardio increases your metabolism for the day and gives you a boost of energy, or adrenaline, to wake you up. After your morning cardio, be sure to eat a healthy, non-greasy breakfast (like a smoothie or a bowl of yogurt with fruit and granola) within an hour of waking up.

3. Leg rises. Start by lying on your back and rising your legs using your abdominals. Repeat at least ten times, not allowing your legs to touch the ground.

2. Push-ups. This simple exercise that we have all learned how to do in P.E. works out your shoulders, triceps, abdominals and chest. Do as many push-ups as you can, but if you’re a beginner, it is recommended to start with 5 to 10 a day and build up from there. Photos/ CHRIS YOUNG

Insight on the

L A Liberal Arts Major Rudy Sanchez The Campus

Liberal Arts, also known as general education, can be a trap too easy to fall into, especially if you are lazy. It’s the wishy-washy major for people who have no idea what they want to do, even after a year in community college. It is certainly the safest choice for those who only think of their education in immediates, but in the long run, Liberal Arts could come and bite you in the butt. One can’t stress the importance of deciding for yourself; you can’t rely solely on the counselors; you have to figure what’s best on your own terms; because nobody is going to hold your hand through life. Make sure whatever you put yourself into is what you really want to do. Don’t get stuck in a mediocre career pursuit, because “going with the flow” just doesn’t work anymore.
