What This Means to Me

Huntington University students came away from the 2023-2024 academic year with a lengthy list of accolades and accomplishments to their credit. But rather than having us tell you about them, we asked the Foresters themselves: What did this award mean to you?

T.I.M.E. Management Series – E

It’s about time (get it?) for the last post in the T.I.M.E. Management Series. So far, we have talked about taking a deep breath when getting started, investing in a planner or calendar, and making room for unexpected events. We’ve talked a lot about how to get started with time management skills, but what about specific studying strategies?

T.I.M.E. Management Series – M

As the saying goes, “Expect the unexpected.” Even if you fill out your planner, commit to a study schedule, and try to fall asleep at a reasonable time, life, especially in college, is completely unpredictable. Some events are unavoidable, like an illness or family situation. Others are by choice, like choosing to watch a movie with your roommate instead of finishing up your chemistry lab (guilty!).

T.I.M.E. Management Series – I

Having a planner and keeping a calendar on my phone has increased my productivity and makes me feel more confident about my schedule. I write out my assignments in black ink and then highlight them when I have turned them in, and I feel accomplished when I see my week in color!

T.I.M.E. Management Series – T

Time management. Fourteen letters, two words, one seemingly impossible task. Between classes, internships, homework, spending time with friends, sleeping, and work, managing your time well can be difficult. No matter where you’re at with your time management skills, this series is for you!

A Content Creator’s Farewell

I have dreaded writing these words for a while, but it’s time: this is my last blog post for HU before I graduate on Saturday. Graduating means moving on to a career, further education, and a bright future, but it also means leaving behind close friends, memories, and my favorite campus job.

Break It Down

Converting the abstract school of duties swimming around in your head to a tangible list in your hand can be life changing. You may even realize the former pile of items was only tall but not that dense, appearing to be more than it really is.

Be a Walker (literally!)

After my classes and internship, I like to grab my water bottle and walk on the sidewalk that surrounds campus. Students call this sidewalk the Campus Loop. Huntington University has a gorgeous campus, and my favorite season at HU is spring.

An Excuse for Today

Look for anything, even the tiniest excuse, to thank God for today. Even though I despise winter, I must acknowledge the snow looks beautiful, plus once I am used to the cold, spring will feel warmer. I may be tired and unenthusiastic to attend a morning class, but there is something serene about campus at dawn which I would have missed if I slept in.

Undecided? HU’s Got You.

Huntington University offers over 70 academic pathways for students to embark on. With so many options, incoming students may feel outside pressure to choose a major without actually wanting to pursue a career in that field. Entering HU as an undecided major can feel scary, but don’t be afraid to enter HU undecided!
