It’s the start of week 8 already, hopefully you finish up the rest of your midterms this week and look forward to Thanksgiving Break. Since finals are coming soon, I want to talk about managing your time and finishing this quarter strong.
This quarter I’m taking 5 classes, while doing MedAppJam, so finals seems so distant from now, but after Thanksgiving Break, they’ll be here in an instant. Keep working hard, and don’t let your foot off the pedal and push through finals for a relaxing Christmas Break.
One current event that has been bothering most of us, the students, is the bill to raise UC tuition by 5% for each of the next 5 years. I, for one, am not satisfied with the concept of increasing tuition, when education should be more encouraged, and not discouraged. With a weakening demand of labor and high unemployment, education becomes even more important, but the price of education keeps increasing. Although, this bill is already passed, our duty as students is to raise awareness to these political figures in preventing another tuition raise in the future.
Thanks for reading my blog post and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
