I virtually attended the Zoom session about adding/changing your major. I've recently changed my major to something that I find more interesting and I've been interested in minoring in something different. It was very informative especially with the section about costs because that's what I've been really worried about.
I've been volunteering with a Marshallese youth group in Springdale for the past few years and I spent this day helping them with the Rowing Club of NWA. I learned about how the Rowing Club helps children learn about rowing and how it can be a recreational or competitive activity. I spent this day helping pick up the kids from their houses and transport them to the lake, as well as returning them back home.
The phone number of the person who was organizing this event is (479)365-1109.
I attended Recess this day and took a break in the Honors Lounge. I used this time to relax and adjust to my new schedule and also grab a few snacks for the rest of the day.
I spent over 10 volunteer hours by taking different modules/training for a course that I'm taking (CIED-3023). A few examples of the different modules/training consisted of learning how to teach students with disabilities, understanding IDEAs, IEP, and 504 plans, and understanding how social, familial, and economic situations can affect a child's education. I linked a Word doc to show the certificates that I have received from these trainings.
I attended Recess on 4/21/22. I had hot chocolate and chips with queso. I used this time to relax and take a break from studying and doing homework.
I attended Recess at the Honors College on 3/17/22. They gave out soda, candy bars, and different types of popcorn. I spent the next few hours just eating caramel popcorn and watching a movie on my phone as a break from doing homework.
I joined the Study Abroad Basics Zoom event. I learned several new things about studying abroad that I think will be useful in the future. Something that I thought was interesting was that we're not limited to taking classes in our specific major program, so as an engineering student, I could still take general education classes in a different country. There was also a link to a page that shows most of the faculty led programs with the dates, descriptions, the credits you could receive, and the expenses of the trip.
I completed the Food Insecurity Survey
I attended the Affording Study Abroad session at Gearhart and learned about the different ways to pay for studying abroad. They had different pamphlets that contained the information they discussed about how to apply for different grants. They also explained how FAFSA can help pay for studying abroad, what it means to stack scholarships, and why different programs have different costs.
This experience made me realize that I should spend more time picking up trash and be more aware of my surroundings
