Hey, guys. As promised, here is the first part of the note about profs to pick and I made them in detail so that you will have a basis on why I recommended them.

KASPIL1 - Mr. Xiao Chua / Dr. Dery / Mr. Viktor Torres / Mr. Bascarra
KASPIL2 - Mr. Xiao Chua / Dr. Dery / Mr. Viktor Torres
- All of them are good in terms of grades & does not give heavy workload. Mr. Chua (for me) is the best choice but all of them are profs to pick because they’ll really make history fun for you. Grades are pretty high & all are sure pass if you’ll attend their class :) As for Mr. Bascarra, super chill and nice professor. He knows how to speak french, Italian, Spanish, and German! Just recite and you’ll get a 4.0 from him. Always attend class so you will be exempted for the midterms and finals. VERY GOOD PROFESSOR and it is beyond doubt that he’s a sure pass prof.

FILKOMU - Mr. David San Juan
- Gives really high grades. Super chill and cool prof! Like a friend in class and you’re going to enjoy being in his class. He’ll give a lot of readings but even if you will not read them, he is really kind and considerate and still give good grades. The lowest grade he gave was 3.5 in our class or 3.0?

FILDLAR - Mr. David San Juan / Ms. Sison-Buban / Mr. Correa
- Same comment for Mr. San Juan. As for Ms. Sison-Buban, she will require you to do 2 videos and that’s all, and you will translate some verses as part of the course but she gives good grades. Lowest was 2.0. But you will get a +.5 if perfect attendance! :) As for Mr. Correa, his class is fun. Gives high grades too and not that hassle but you need to comply with his requirements but if you want to make your life a whole lot easier, GO FOR HIM. So all of them are good profs :)

STATACC - Mr. Erickson Quijano
- He gives quizzes which are quite hard. But he gives really good grades at the end of the term "daw". Also, you will laugh every meeting. He's a funny funny prof! SWEAR. Sure pass too. Just attendance class and act as if you're listening ;)

ENGLRES - Ms. Borlongan / Mrs. De Guzman / Ms. Migallos / Ms. Parina / Ms. Sipacio
- Borlongan, gives high grades, chill, you will learn a lot, very approachable and nice prof. As for Ms. De Guzman, quite demanding. You think you'll fail but she's really really nice. You will learn a lot from her although sometimes, it gets boring. But she gives high grades and very considerate and fun! Migallos, Parina, and Sipacio are good profs as well. They are okay in terms of workload. They give high grades just do your part. Chill profs!

ENGLCOM - Ms. Dita / Mr. Hervas / Ms. Balgos
- They said that Dita is the best choice for ENGLCOM. Chill. Fun. High grades. Learn :) Same with Mr. Hervas and Ms. Balgos. All of them are kind, considerate, understanding, and generous! :)

ACTBAS1 - Mr. Crisostomo / Mr. Joven / Ms. Velasco
- Mr. Crisostomo gives good grades. Quizzes are not that hard but you need to study. Fun professor. :) Mr. Joven gives hard quizzes but you will learn in his class and gives fair enough grades so STUDY!! As for Ms. Velasco, she's a LEGEND. She is good for accounting majors because she really knows what she is teaching. She might be intimidating at first but when you get used to it, she's the BEST. Quizzes are so hard so it's possible not to pass any of her quizzes if you'll not study. Get her if you want to be challenged and this ain't ordinary challenge ;)

ACTBAS2 - Mr. Menaje / Mr. Mercado / Ms. Clerigo
- Mr. Menaje, gives fair with grades. VERY TRICKY & HARD QUIZZES. Don't give incentives. The only plus points you can get are the points if you will prepare PERFECT financial statements. Took him twice but you will NEVER REGRET taking him. You will learn a lot & YOU NEED HIM FOR THE QUALIFYING EXAM if you are a BSA Major. But be prepared. I might be able to help you too if you want to take him because I know how it is to be in his class + I have some old tests that you could really USE :) As for Mr. MERCADO, very funny prof. MODERATE QUIZZES. Okay when it comes to teaching. I was never in his class but I have heard from a lot of people that he's funny talaga and he's worth taking as well. Good grades too if you are fond of studying ;) Also, he adjusts depending on the highest grade in your class. As for Ms. Clerigo, sure pass prof. Not that "maarte" when it comes to folder/business case. Gives away powerpoints. If you want an easy prof, go for her. But she's not really for BSA Majors because she is quite boring and she doesn't teach that good as what I have heard. But when it comes to grades, I think she's lenient and she's nice + approachable.

ACTPACO - Mr. Gonzales / Mr. Menaje / Ms. Baluran / Ms. Velasco
-Same comment for Mr. Menaje and Ms. Velasco. As for Ms. Baluran, she's motherly but you need to do some self-studying. She's nice and a sure pass prof if you will let her feel that you want to listen to her. Quizzes are rather hard but she's really considerate. As for Mr. Gonzales, a cool prof (the fact na mohawk pa ang hair niya). Quizzes are rather hard and tricky but he teaches really well. Possible maka-4.0 if you understand fully what he is teaching but you really need to be careful when answering his quizzes. Also, he's considerate & fun. Adjusts grades too (depending on the highest grade among the people in his class).

ACTMANA - Mr. Magcale / Mr. Quijano
-Same comment for Mr. Quijano (see STATACC). As for Mr. Magcale, he really knows what he is teaching. Really good prof! Quizzes are do-able but you need to study! He is also kind and approachable just try your best while learning! In terms of grades, he's okay. FAIR & JUST.

OBLICON - Ms. Zenaida Manalo / Mr. Quan / Mr. De Jesus
-Ms. Manalo is a LEGEND. You do not need to recite much but have the book. She will really explain the certain things on the book through understandable example situations. She is really nice and fun class too! :) As for Mr. Quan, he gives very good grades. Not the hard. Fun prof too. :) Considerate + gives additional points. +.5 if perfect attendance. Even adjusts. Sure pass! Crossword puzzle exam & essay type quizzes but not that difficult. :) As for Mr. De Jesus, he's really nice, gives good grades, quizzes are okay and you will learn. He's not that harsh when it comes to recitation. :)

PARTCOR - Mr. Tolentino / Mr. Nethercott / Ms. Cruz
-TOLENTINO - Good grades. Kapag perfect attendance, sure pass na just listen to his lectures. Mahilig magbigay ng plus. Easy recitation questions, funny prof, a prof to pick REALLY :) As for NETHERCOTT, funny prof, Chill (as what I have heard), Checks attendance, Quizzes are from the book (definition most likely), Good grades. As for ROS, a prof for LEGMA people. Hard but you will really learn a lot & very very good at teaching. Fair with grades. As for J. CRUZ, super chill prof. Gives good grades but you need to read the book to learn! ;)

BUSMATH: Mr. Hapitan
-He's okay in terms of quizzes. He's not that harsh and his quizzes are not that hard as well. Sure pass too! Considerate professor but you need to study. You will learn naman something from him just listen to his lectures. :)

MARKET1 - Ms. Sanchez / Ms. Acosta
-Both of them are good in teaching and in grading. They give good grades and less hassle. Quizzes are not that hard. They are profs to pick. Some say Sanchez is better, some say Acosta. But over-all, they're quite the same. So I would recommend both. If you're under Sanchez, always recit because she has favoritism at times :) Gives easy midterms too :)

HUMALIT - Dr. Evasco / Mr. Espiritu
-Go for Dr. Evasco if you wanna learn BIGTIME in humalit. She's a good prof, but she makes you do a bit of work and reading. But she gives pretty good grades! You will do a lot of papers on different readings. There is also a final oral exam and a poetry recital. I enjoyed her class although many of my classmates dropped her. Well, it's their loss (I THINK). As for Mr. Espiritu, a very chill prof. Gives really good grades and he is not that demanding when it comes to papers and things. Fun class if you're under him :)

HUMAART - Mr. Darcy / Ms. Kabayao
-Mr. Darcy is a very cool prof. Likes saying bad word and really funny! Gives high grades too. He will make you build your own clay statue/masterpiece and you will have quizzes too but not that hard. Grades are really unexpected. :) Range: 3.0 - 4.0 :) As for Ms. Kabayao, super chill prof. Gives 4.0s! Very considerate and very kind. Hot prof too ;) Hahaha.

INTFILO - Sarza / Pantaleon / Dela Cruz / Mary Velasco
-Pantaleon gives really high grades (4.0 mostly). Chill and very nice prof. You will learn and you will enjoy the class. There's not so much on quizzes. A prof to pick ;) As for Dela Cruz, she gives pretty good grades too but quite boring at times. Chill prof too! :) As for Sarza, she also gives good grades and her teaching style is okay. You just need to listen in class which is hard :)) As for Velasco, a great prof. Grades will depend on how you listen in her class. You need to take down notes because it will be of really GREAT HELP sa mga quizzes. She's nice and considerate but you really need to listen to her lectures and take down notes. If you don't like writing notes, WOULDN'T RECOMMEND HER. :)

TREDTWO - Ms. Sayago / Fr. Dagmang / Mr. Raymundo / Mr. Mozol / Mr. Salcedo / Ms. Ancheta
-All of them are great profs. CHILL. FUN. LEARN. HIGH GRADES. NICE. They have it all ;)

COMALGE - Mr. Edmundo Perez
-An okay prof. Grades will depend on your quizzes. Rarely adjusts. Kind of boring so do some self studying. Not that good in spelling too.

PERSEF SUBJECTS - Ms. Marybeth Nave
-VERY COOL. All 4.0! ;) That's all I can say. REALLY REALLY COOL PROF!! SUPER FAB! She is into cosplaying, reporting on NEWSTV, and model! She's a mentor too in John Robert Powers! LIKE A FRIEND!

LBYACC1 / LBYACC2 - Mr. Villagracia / Mr. Quijano
-Same comment for Mr. Quijano (see STATACC) but he gives away 4.0 and 3.5 in Lab Accounting subjects (and other lab subjects under him). As for Mr. Villagracia, he is very very considerate. Like a kabarkada and he gives really good grades too! CHILL BUT DO YOUR WORK AND YOUR PART. Submit everything and you'll get a high grade :)

INTSOCI - Ms. San Juan
- the lowest grade she gave was 2.0 in our class. There will be a midterm and final exam and you need to do some research papers but she is really considerate and very kind. Gives pretty high grades!! :) I must say that she's really a prof to pick. CHILL CHILL CHILL. :)


-She adjusts grades. Very nice professor. You will also learn in her class just listen. Quizzes are not that hard. You may approach her if you can't understand the lesson. Chill. :)

- She is a legend in marketing. She is like the counterpart of Elsie Velasco. Very hard but you will really learn bigtime. If you are a marketing or advertising major, you should get her. If not, I don't think so. :) To survive in her class means that you're good! ;) Grades will depend on how you exert effort in her class and how you will take the subject seriously. Also, for the final paper, just a tip, make it more than 10 pages ;)

- She is really considerate and sweet. She gives good grades too. She will not make you do a lot of things in class. I was under her in ECONONE and I find her okay. You will learn but she does not give powerpoints. Quizzes are not that hard :)

- If you want to learn + you want a fun prof + you want to get good grade = GO FOR HIM :) That's all I can say.

- gives good grades, kind of boring because she's old but very considerate and nice. But over-all, people say that Pangan is worth taking + a prof to pick! :)

- He will give you +10 in your FINAL GRADE when you attend a seminar/talk, quite demanding when it comes to papers, 2 very hard quizzes, you think you'll fail but at the end of the term, GRADES WORK LIKE MAGIC ;)

-She's demanding and you cannot afford to miss a class because you will do something every meeting. HASSLE but gives fair enough grades at the end of the term. You need to put effort.

- He fails students and not that good with grades. :)

- CHILL PROF. Take home quizzes. Cool prof. Adjusts grades. Easy midterms. Gives really good grades at the end of the term.

- Rarely adjusts & she also gives somehow hard quizzes. Although, you may learn something from her and she will discuss the topics thoroughly too. :) Grades will depend on your quizzes and homeworks (exercises on the workbook)

- Some say she's nice + sure pass but some also say that she's not. But one thing's for sure - you need to put effort if you're under her class and take the subject seriously ;) Grades depend on effort! She is really fair with it. It is also possible that you'll fail her class, get 1.0 or 1.5.

- Marc Spencer Sy is my prof in BUSORGA and I really had fun. He's quite green but you will learn in his class. He does not check attendance but you need to do some paperworks. He gives away all the powerpoints you need. Give high grades (just do your part and the papers) Oh, you also need to do a business case but by group. He's very cool. VERY VERY COOL :)

- Likes to give bonuses + gives good grades + you will learn something from his lectures = PROF TO PICK!! You're really lucky if you're under his class :)

- Most likely she gives 4.0 but it depends on how she treats your section. But most of the comments about her is that she gives high grades but really really boring.

-Chill. Gives high grades. Will not let you do a lot of things. Very considerate and fun prof. :)

- Both are sure pass and gives good grades. But the best choice will be Borromeo although both of these professors are okay too when it comes to teaching, grades, and attitude :)

- A very very chill prof and easy 4.0. Quizzes are easy (if there's any depending on her mood). Very considerate and kind. You will really like to be in her class. PROF TO PICK :)

- She's a good prof but quizzes are rather hard so you really need to study. It is possible to get the grade that most students want but you really need to exert effort in her class. :)

- A very nice professor. You will never get bored in class although you need to do some talking since it's Speech and Communication. Gives good grades. Just be prepared with all the speeches ;)

- A sure 4.0 prof. He will not let you do a lot of work & doesn't give quizzes too. You will learn. A perfect choice ;)

- Gives really high grades. Very considerate professor. He will help you a lot with the things you need to do and very approachable and kind. Not much of a hassle. A very good choice if you want to have fun, get good grades, and learn without having the feeling of intimidation and pressure :)

- Pretty prof. Very kind but likes to have recitation every meeting. Always have the book because it will really come in handy during her class but you need to read the book ahead of time because recitation would be random. Grades fairly. Does not give so many 4.0s. Effort is needed :) No quizzes, just lots of recitation.

- A very kind prof. He does not give very hard quizzes. Grades are unexpectedly good. Just recite and be practical when answering. He is not the harsh instead he is very considerate. A PROF TO PICK. :)

- She is kind and motherly. She gives some of the answers to the workbook and she also gives powerpoints. Quizzes are moderate but some say that her quizzes are really hard (but I don't think so). You need to study for the course, sometimes by yourself. She likes telling real life stories. It's like every ppt slide has a story of her own. :))))) Grades are okay. She adjusts. And those under her said that she's a sure pass prof except if you are not attending class and your quizzes are really really low.

- Gives really high grades. Chill and very nice. Just do your work and it's okay. :) I recommended him already (look above) :)

-Fails students. Kind of hassle. :( Just try to avoid this professor as much as possible but if you're up for a challenge, then GO!

-Gives good enough grades. A bit hassle but not too much. You need to do the papers well. Sometimes you will make a lot of papers for 90 minutes and it's quite really complicated but this prof's really nice and grades are okay.

-A very very kind professor. Gives high grades. Recite when there's a chance to recite. Attendance, not so harsh. Quizzes are do-able and not that hard as how people could imagine. There are even times when you'll not have any quizzes at all (based on my sources) but most likely, you will :) Just do your part but over-all HE'S A PROF TO PICK!! GO GET HIM, REALLY :)

- He's teaching mods so that means that he's okay when it comes to teaching but some of my friends said that he's quite "sabog" at times but manageable and kind. Quizzes are kind of hard but do-able if you studied for them. Grades will depend on the results of your quizzes, midterms, finals :) FAIR ENOUGH. Effort's needed though.

- She is okay - kind. Teaches well enough. Not that intimidating and harsh. She's quite nice but quite hassle too. Grades fairly and adjusts too. You will learn and I must say that she's not a prof to avoid.

- Pretty prof. REALLY! But she's quite book-based so you really need to have the book (the green one) and grades fairly too. No quizzes, just random & hard recitations every meeting (and you need to answer well). You need to read the book ahead of time so you are capable of answering the questions she will ask. :) Typical.

- She is nice and gives good grades (but there are students that failed her class). Kind of boring but chill prof. Not that demanding. Do your part and everything will fall into place. :) Good prof just do all the requirements :)

- She has a downloaded lecture notes in Scribd :) She grades fairly but quizzes are rather hard (but not as hard as Ms. Velasco's). You really need to study in class. She knows what she is teaching so better listen although there are times where you'll be bored but that's conditional but every meeting is filled with learnings. Have the folder (where the exercises on the workbook will be compiled) and business case. Study because grades will depend on your performance and effort. Adjusts a little but not high. Gives incentives which you will need ;)

- Doesn't teach that well. Quizzes are rather hard but he adjusts. It's hard to learn in class so sometimes you need to do some self-studying which is hard. Some quizzes are take home and library work. Grades fairly but not that high. :(

- Very very kind and considerate. Quizzes are easy. Gives high enough grades. Discussions are all about the exercises on the workbook and some theories. Sure pass if you put a little effort in class. NOTE: If you're a BSA major, I wouldn't recommend him but if you're not, he's a good choice. :)

- Mr. Paderna is a good prof. He knows what he's teaching and he is really good. You need to listen and take down notes at times. He gives huge bonuses if perfect attendance so try not to be absent. Grades are okay. He is kind and very positive :)

- You will learn a lot in class (if you're listening) and likes telling stories of real life. Grades are fair enough too. Sometimes, you tend to get bored but try to listen as much as possible. A typical prof :) Not a prof to pick but not to avoid.

PERSEF: RJ MONATO - A very good professor and gives really high grades. Discusses for 30 minutes then game throughout so you will really enjoy every persef class. You will learn a lot from him as well. A perfect choice although persef professors are random so it's kind of rare to be in his class (Thank you Elvis Ngo for this recommendation)

GENDERS - ROSALLA DOMINGO - Very recommended. Very chill and gives high grades! You will learn too. They even said that she is very nice and considerate :) Not demanding! (Thank you, Angela Palmones for this recommendation).

- There's nothing much I could say about this professor but he's good at teaching. He is recommended by my friend who took him because he gives good enough grades at the end of the term. Not that hassle and an okay prof. He is not book-based. It'll be better to listen to him but over-all, he's okay.

- She is a sure pass prof and gives high grades. Quizzes are really easy but you need to do some self studying because she is really not that good at teaching. Do the exercises on the workbook. If you only want a sure pass prof, get her. If you want to really learn, then I wouldn't recomment her. If you're a BSA Major and it's your first take of ACTBAS2 or any Basic Accounting subjects, I wouldn't recommend her. :)

- Sure pass. Gives high grades. You will learn in his class. Fun but there are times where you'll get bored but he will try his best to let you focus. They said he's awesome and "the best". So I think he's a prof to recommend :)

-A sure pass professor. He is kind and considerate but kind of boring. Quizzes are either by group or open notes. He entertains questions while quiz time. Keep track of the syllabus because he follows the schedule there most likely. Teaches well and gives good grades at the end of the term.

- He is kind of intimidating. Gives hard quizzes too. Kind of hassle too. He does not adjust much and he gives fair enough grades -- grades will depend on quizzes and requirements. Gives incentives so grab the opportunity because you might need them to pass. Not that recommended (for me).
-Gives a systematic and thorough lecture and pays great attention to detail. If he likes the class there is a chance he will cancel you lowest quiz as to bump up your GPA. There is a chance to get a solid grade in his class if you show him that you're working hard and deserve the grade.

- He is a sure pass prof. Kind of hassle and you need to study. He is okay & considerate too. There are also times that he'll be leaving the room while you're having your quiz --- YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN :))

- He's okay. Gives good enough grades but not that high. Quizzes are moderately hard but he teaches well. He is not the friendly type of professor but he is good :)

- People say he's a terror prof but he's nice naman. But he fails students who really do not put any effort at all but most likely, SURE PASS. He gives really really hard quizzes. Likes telling stories. You need to do some self studying too. With regards to grades, FAIR ENOUGH.

-He gives fair enough grades as what people say (sometimes, they comment that he doesn't but most of them said that he is). Talkative in class & you wouldn't dare to go out while you'rei n his class. Don't be late if you don't want to sing. No quizzes, just midterms and finals. He is funny and approachable when outside the classroom, but when in class... take him seriously. Don't ever dare to sleep, doze off, or whatsoever because he will notice you.

- Grades will depend on your quizzes. Quizzes are out of this world. It's quite hard even if it's multiple choice most of the time. Well, always be prepared. You'll learn from him bigtime. But he does fail students.

INTFILO: MR. GOJOCCO- This prof is cool but you really need to be attentive. Do well in everythig that he will ask you to do. He knows what he is talking about most of the time. Grades depend on effort. Does not give 4.0 that much. He fails students so take his subjects seriously ;)

- She gives away 4.0! COOL PROF. VERY COOL. She teaches Basketball. Even if you're not that good, you'll receive a grade of 3.5 - 4.0 :)

- What can I say? Hmm. Sure 4.0 ;)

SCIMATB (and other Science related subjects): MS. FLORES - Chill. Gives high grades. - --- Requirements are not that hard. Quizzes? Not so. She is considerate as ever. She's very kind too! I highly recommend her since some Science professors give away low grades.

-Sure pass. Easy 3.5 - 4.0. Very considerate, fun and kind. A great prof! you'll learn a lot and enjoy a lot ;)

FINMAN2: ELEAZAR, VIVIAN - Likes giving away quizzes for FINMAN2 but she adjusts grades. Very considerate and kind too. Recitations? Not much. Doesn't give away so many 4.0s since your grade will really depend on effort. She gives incentives too if an organization will ask her to give such. Over-all, she's nice. I would recommend her but still, study for the quizzes. But, she's a sure pass prof. :) Not that chill but not that hassle as well. Her way of teaching is typical too :)

-Hindi mahilig magparecite. Quizzes are rather hard pero most likely T/F at multiple choice lang. Some say boring pero most of them say na masayang prof yan. I'm not sure if he curves grades eh but he's good raw. Nice and considerate too. :)

FILDLAR: Dr. Emma Sison
-Takes the matter of Fildlar very seriously, and your grade will be heavily weighted on her quizzes and midterm exam. Project paper and defense in place of a final exam. Mediocre performance in the tests but a good final paper can merit you a 2.0

ENGLCOM: Rentillo, Phillip
-Chill professor overall, his class is just a matter of attendance and doing fairly well in his quizzes. Gives decent grades, and is definitely a prof to pick.

TRED SUBJECTS: Gabe, Melchor Giovanni
-He doesn't give many tests or quizzes, rather lets his students make presentations and teach each other. Not difficult to get a 3.0-4.0 in his class if he knows you and you can consistently recite and contribute to the lecture.

HUMABEH: Gaerlan, Martin
-Very nice guy, has held management position in various companies so he definitely knows what he's talking about concerning his subject. Moderately difficult quizzes and his final exam is a project paper and presentation. He is a prof to pick if you want to learn from someone who has qualifications in the field of management. His grades will range from 2-3.5 depending more on your final project and attendance and class participation.
- He makes you recite for 30 mins or more depending on his contentment as to your answers. Most of BSA acquaintances dropped him when they knew that he'll be our professor for Negotin since they failed in OBLICON (although our grade requirement for that subject is 2.0). He is kind of intimidating but he's okay. However, he's not that sure pass and you really need to read the book. All quizzes are surprise ones and in essay form (2 questions only). But the midterm and finals have T/F, multiple choice, and essay. You really need to work for your grade and READ.

Eva Ibbotson - a Company of Swans

...the stone parapet of the bridge on which she stood, her face was pensive and her feet— and this was unusual in the daughter of a professor of classics in the year 1912— were folded in the fifth position. She was a thin girl, brown-haired and brown-eyed, whose gravity and gentleness could not always conceal her questing spirit and eagerness for life. Sensibly dressed in a blue caped coat and tarn o'shanter bought to last, a leather music case propped against the wall beside her, she was a familiar figure to the passers-by: to ancient Dr. Ferguson, tottering across the willow-fringed bridge in inner pursuit of an errant Indo-Germanic verb; to a gardener trimming the edges of the grass, who raised his cap to her. Professor Morton's clever daughter; Miss Morton's biddable niece. To grow up in Cambridge was to be fortunate indeed. To be able to look at this marvelous city each day was a blessing of which one should never tire. Harriet, crumbling bread into the water for the world's most blase ducks, had told herself this again and again. But it is not cities which make the destinies of eighteen-year-old girls, it is people— and as she gazed at the lazy, muddy river and thought of her future and her home, her eyes held an expression which would have better become a little gutter starveling— a bleak and shipwrecked look devoid of happiness and hope. Professor Morton was already in his forties when, at a reading party in Switzerland, he met an English girl working as a governess to......

...general requirements for more than half the price of a four year institute. Going a community college for the first two years can positively influence your life and college career. College is a time for change and figuring out the rest of your life, but you do not need to spend a great amount of money to do so. Many students start college with a general idea of what they want to study or have no idea at all. Going to a community college provides a greater sense of flexibility of picking and switching your major. At a local college you pay per class. in contrast to paying the full-time or part-time cost at a university. Someone can decide that the business field is not for them and switch to science. You would end up wasting around $20,000 in tuition at a university for switching your major because you took business general requirements that do not benefit a science degree. And at a local college you would lose a fraction of that amount of money for switching your major. Making a commitment about picking a major is less stressful when you have flexibility to...

...Name Professor English 1301 2 September 2015 Life in the Eyes of a Migrant Farmer I grew up in a close-knit family in Mission, Texas. As migrant farmworkers, my parents, siblings and I would travel to the San Joaquin Valley in California each spring to pick grapes and to clean cotton, then return back to Texas in the fall. Even though I loved to attend school and was very goal driven in my academics I was not able to truly succeed because of my family’s occupation. Our journey began right after we were let out of school in Mission finishing my 6th grade academic year. The year was 1973, and that summer we arrived in Wasco, California; a small town with a population of 8,475. (84 E-4 Estimates for Counties and Cities) During our first few weeks in Wasco, we lived with some acquaintances and shared a bedroom until we were able to get a three-bedroom apartment in the camp. These apartments were for low-income families and occupied farm workers. They had beautiful scenery of almond and fruit trees, also they were surrounded by roses. As time passed, a few weeks later we finally received our first job to pick tomatoes. My parents, brother and I were the only ones at the time who could work. My two younger sisters were not of age yet. My parents made sure to buy my brother and I hats, shirts, and gloves so that we can be prepared for our first day of work.

What Are the Most Significant Factors That Influence the President in Choosing a Cabinet ?

...when it’s comes to a cabinet and balancing it. Most of these factors are for face value to show to congress and the public what a role model in fairness and leadership the president is. There is only one factor that actually makes logical sense in running a country and not for political gain. This factor being that a president will appoint people that hold specialised knowledge in a specific area of policy that will relate to a cabinet position. These experts may be sourced for universities as both Obama and Bush Jr. found university professors to be cabinet members. These being Rod Paige as Secretary of Education in 2001 and Steven Chu, a physics professor at UC Berkley, as secretary of energy in 2009. This way of picking members of the cabinet stretches back to the start of the 20th century with James Wilson being Agriculture secretary for McKinley, Roosevelt and Taft, after being a professor of agriculture at Iowa State University. Professors aren’t the only source of experts found within the cabinet, for example Superintendents (Arne Duncan, School Superintendent, Education Secretary), CEO’s (Timothy Geithner, NY Fed. Reserve Bank President, Secretary of the Treasury) and commissioners (Shaun Donovan, NYC housing commissioner, secretary of housing and urban development) can all be selected. At the time of Clinton, if he wasn’t vice president, Al Gore would have probably been Secretary for Energy due to his highly valued expertise in energy and the environment. The......

Online Classes vs Campus Classes

...ONLINE CLASSES VS CAMPUS CLASSES 1 Online Classes Vs Campus Classes Diablo Sparks Everest University Online Professor Brooks Composition 1-100 December 21, 2014 ONLINE CLASSES VS CAMPUS CLASSES 2 Choosing a college is never easy, but before picking school you want to attend, you must first decide whether you want to pursue an education at an online university or a traditional college. The end result is the same, a diploma that will help you find a job in your field, but the learning environment is very different between the two platforms. It is important to understand key differences between online learning and traditional classes before deciding on the right path for you. From my experiences online classes are more convenient, but campus classes makes the resources more accessible, as well as there is better class participation. Convenience in scheduling is very important when making the choice of an online education, or one that’s more traditional. Every online class is run differently, but in most cases, it is much easier to schedule your classes around the rest of your day when you go to school virtually. Campus-based courses require that you attend class a certain number of times every week, at specific times. That might mean changing your work schedule or having to hire a babysitter. Online classes......

Music Review

...Aaron Karo 12/8/08 Professor Phipps Concert Review The Korean Percussion Ensemble was held in the Annette Recital Hall at the Center for the Arts. The director of the band was Soojin Kim Ritterling. The performance was called "Samulnori", which means "four things playing." These four things refer to the four instruments used in Nongak. The first song played by the Korean band was called "Tego Sori" by Soojin Kim Ritterling. The song started out with a bang as the bass drums were played. Then, other drums joined the bass drums. This combination of the two different drums playing together had a really good beat and rhythm. The beat started picking up pace after the two drums played together. The song sounded good as it changed it's speed, rhythm, and tempo quite often. The song ended just as it began, with very loud drums and a very quick pace. The next song was called "Yongnam Nongak." The song started off with gongs playing, and the rest of the band joined in, in sync with the gongs. They were all playing in unison and the song sounded good, as it had good range from higher pitched drums to lower pitched drums. As the song continued to play, I noticed that the bigger gong that was playing, controlled the beat and rhythm of the song. The song sounded as it if were a ceremonial song they played in their country. Then, the drums started picking up the pace of the song along with the gongs. The drums picked up the pace while hitting both......

College Majors, Unemployment and Earning

...Morgan Atwood Professor Branham English 102 July 4, 2016 College Majors, Unemployment and Earnings: Not All Colleges Degrees are Created Equal The Article, College Majors, Unemployment and Earnings: Not All Colleges Degrees are Created Equal by Anthony P. Carnevale, Ban Cheah, and Jeff Strohl, asks the question “Is College worth it?”(297) Does putting all the time and money into a system of learning really worth it? After the recent Great Recession, young adults are faced with this question. The answer? Yes, and the research shows us that “bachelor’s degrees is an unacceptable 8.9 percent, but it’s a catastrophic 22.9 percent for job seekers with a recent high school diploma—and an almost unthinkable 31.5 percent for recent high school dropouts.” (297) When going to college, student need a game plan, they need to pick the right degree to have the best chance of employment. The lowest unemployment rate right now is in architecture, due to the collapse of the construction and home building. Majors in the field of Computers and Mathematics vary in unemployment, depending on the type of major. “The Education, Healthcare, Business and Professional Services industries have been the most stable employers for recent college graduates.”(298) Unemployment rates are very low compared to other rates at around (5.4 percent). In the research, college majors that “aligned with particular occupations and industries tend to experience lower unemployment rates” (298). Majors......

Human Resources

...Israel Lopez Professor Carmer September 24, 2014 HMD 253 Throughout my process of deciding which college to attend, I looked at various reasons why and why not to attend at certain universities. The dining commons, the professors, the level of the school, requirements, majors, etc. were all reasons that I took into consideration in picking the school that I wanted to attend. I decided to go to UNLV for the reason that it was in state and it would be cheaper for me and to be part of their Hospitality program. The University of Nevada, Las Vegas’ Harrah Hotel College is one of the best schools in the United States for hospitality for many reasons; however, it also has its negatives. I have been part of the Harrah Hotel College for 3 years and I have had tremendous experiences and disappointing ones as well. I completely understand that all schools have problems and can’t always be perfect, but there are problems with UNLV and its hotel college that aren’t tolerable. Aside from the negatives throughout the hotel college, it definitely also has its positive, which makes it one of the top schools for hospitality. One of the negatives that I feel like the Hotel College has is the amount of requirements that one has to complete in order to graduate. Aside from all our core classes, every hotel student also has to complete an internship, which also requires for you to a class with it and also 1000 hours work experience apart from the internship. The hotel college is the only......

Reading Habit

...The Reading Habit 9 by Frankie Y. Bailey   We humans are creatures of habit. Change, real change, does not come easily for most of us. We prefer to get into our comfortable groove and stay there. Change often requires an epiphany, a life-altering insight, that most of us rarely, if ever, experience. Perhaps this is why the more cynical among us would doubt that simply picking up a book could change a life.   Like many avid readers, I have had the experience of falling in love with a book. But, I confess here, I have not been faithful to my loves. After the first delight of discovery, I have strayed in search of other books that would engage, challenge, tantalize, take my breath away and leave me wanting more. My affairs with books have been passionate and many. And I am the better for my unfaithfulness to a singe book or any one author.   This is why when I am asked to name my favorite book I find myself embarrassed by my inability to name the one book that I would take with me to a desert island or even the five books or ten. I know that my favorite writer (now deceased) was a man named Richard Martin Stern. Mr. Stern was my favorite author because when I wrote to him as a teenager to tell him how much I loved his mystery series (featuring an African American, or actually biracial, female anthropologist), he wrote back to thank me for my letter. By doing so, he helped to set me on my own path toward becoming a writer. But this does not mean Mr. Stern’s Johnny Ortiz......

Learning Style

...What is your learning style? Since I graduated from high school, I have already known the kind of learner I was from how I study for tests to how I comprehend in lectures or discussions in class. Indeed, I am an auditory learner because of the information given after the learning style quiz. An auditory learner is best at listening rather than reading or by visually learning. At first, I was shocked that I was an auditory learner because I thought my results would come out as a multi-sensory learner instead since I “thought” I was good at learning in all ways. But, I know the best “preferred” way I learn is by hearing information. After taking the quiz, I realized I was more of an auditory learner than I thought I was. The results of the quiz described me at most of the main points. If I would have a big test to study for, I am not the best at reading silently or reading quickly while I study. I take my time to read and I do read out loud at a quiet tone, so I can actually comprehend what I am reading rather than reading it quickly and forgetting everything faster. Like most people, I do forget about what I read a few minutes later, so to help me remember important facts I always annotate and write side notes. The other learning styles I have is writing down important facts on index cards and testing myself by reading each definition or fact out loud more than once. From one the questions in the quiz it asked how I memorize a phone number from seeing it and I answered......

...INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING THE DEBATE REVIEW AND DISCUSSIONS Introduction The course “Logic and Critical Thinking” has built into the curriculum 20% of the work to be done online. The three Debate Reviews and Discussions fulfill this course requirement. Each of the three debate reviews and discussions is anticipated to take approximately four hours to complete the online portion (watching the media and small group discussion). The writing of the four page minimum paper is not captured by the five hour online aspect of the online portion. Each debate review and discussion is broken down into four phases: watching/reading the media, small group discussion, large group discussion board and your individual work through the four page paper. The Focus for the business-related debate The focus for the second debate assignment is to continue to pay attention to any definite arguments – the V and T argument structures (identify at least two), but this time pay more attention to the conditional types of arguments that may arise within the documentary. These are statements are include things like, “If this, then this.” Or “Either this or this” – or any of the valid forms we looked at in class. Once you have identified at least 4 throughout the movie, diagram them either through a sentential structure or a symbolic one and briefly describe how they are used in the documentary. For a bonus, see if you can find an invalid argument – one that either denies the antecedent or affirms the......

...Michael Wade GM591 Leadership and Organizational Behavior Professor: Reginald Doctor 5/19/11 The Forgotten Team Member Group Development Christine's leadership abilities could benefit by having the knowledge of the different stages of group development. Christine doesn’t seem like the ideal leader for the group. With Steve’s, “Businesslike” personal style, I feel like he would have made the best group leader. But As a the team leader, Christine could have encouraged Mike that the meetings are very important and being present for group meetings so he can be part of the team and share his own ideas from the notes that he was sending. Christine shouldn’t have waited until week 5 to start to put together a team meeting. This should have been something setup as soon as the teams were assigned. At this time I would say that the team is in, “The storming stage of team development.” The only forming stage that was done by this group was the professor assigning who is in what group. What I saw out of the group development was: * Forming Stage – Nothing other than the being assigned to a group. * Storming Stage – This is where I feel the team never made it past this stage. There are high emotions and lots of tension is in the air between the team and Mike. * Norming Stage – I didn’t see this team making it to this stage but during this stage there's now a new sense of harmony following the storming stage and members try to maintain that......
