Moving Along (OPINION)

November 17, 2013

The school year is finally on its way. The classes have started, schedules are comfortable, and the lunch is disgusting. It’s officially begun. Are you ready? Are you really ready? For most this is the year of regrets, the time someone does something to mess themselves up. Many have claimed this to be the product of innocent ignorance and pure misguidance. Every year there are some that struggle and some that excel; some that climb, and some that fall; some that rise to the occasion, and some that get lost on the way. You get my drift.

¿Qué vas a hacer con tu vida? (SPANISH)

November 4, 2013

El lunes 30 de septiembre un grupo de estudiantes de Patterson fueron al R2L (ready to learn) Congressional Hispanic Caucus en Washington D.C. Allí nos enseñaron cómo podemos los requisitos para entrar en la universidad y cómo podemos encontrar nuestra universidad preferida. También nos mostraron cómo podemos buscar los recursos necesarios para pagar por la matricula y otras necesidades. También nos aconsejaron que no pusiéramos fotos “inapropiadas” en las redes sociales porque al buscar trabajo e incluso en algunas universidades muchos buscan la red social para ver si eres un buen candidato para ellos.
