Summer Survival
May 2013
How will YOU stay plugged in?
It takes planning. Have you arranged for childcare? There are several child
care centers close to campus, some of them offering discounts for Keiser
students. Check out contact information posted around campus. Or, maybe
switch to online classes for the summer. The convenience and flexibility
might be just what works for a busy mom or dad. If this idea appeals to you,
visit Academics by week three. Schedule adjustments can be made.
It takes commitment. Just think…instead of your summer days slipping away,
you’re getting closer to your goal (Graduation!!!). On days when the lure of
leisure time beckons, having a study buddy to encourage you really helps.
At the start of each class, team up—exchange phone
numbers with a classmate so you can stay connected.
It’s hard to let someone down by not showing up, so
you’ll be motivated to keep that study date, do that assignment. And if you have to miss a class, you have
someone to contact to get notes and assignments that
you missed.
It takes desire. No one can make you attend class. But
think of the consequences of missing those few days
that roll into a few more. Before you know it, you’ve
missed too much time, too much work to get caught up,
so you drop a class. That’s an expensive choice! Our
doors are always open so speak with a dean if you have
a problem.

Other tips:
Make a calendar-plan
for school time, work
time, leisure time
Reward yourself-set
short term goals and
treat yourself every time
you achieve one
Take care of yourselfeat well, exercise, rest
Visualize yourself
working in your desired career-some people display a symbol (a
tool of the trade, a figu-
rine, a picture) --every
time you see it, it will
remind you of your goal
Use on-campus resources-go to the Writing Studio or library for
an hour after or before
class so you can relax
when you go home
knowing that you’ve
already completed the
reading or assignment
for next class
Ask for help if you
need it-we all want you
to be successful and
reach your goal. If
you have any situation, academic, financial, personal, ask for
help. We are more
than willing to assist.

May Star Student….Jason Jackson
Congratulations, Jason
Jackson, Radiologic Technology
Student and our May Star Student.
At a recent meeting, The Cypress

The CLVA opened this opportunity up to Keiser University students
