It’s Time For Graduation.

Graduation is right around the corner and everyone is frantic about what they need for graduation. Do you have everything you need?

Meet with your academic advisors to review degree plan

Students tend to assume they are graduating when they are meant to, but it’s best to double check. I would recommend doing it a year before your expected graduation date or the semester before so you have time to fix any concerns.

Apply for graduation

Hopefully everything worked out in your favor and now you are ready to apply for graduation. Be mindful of any deadlines!

Do you have your cap and gown?

Graduation attire is obviously important. Make sure to get fitted in order to get the right size for your cap and gown.

Are you buying a class ring?

Class rings are a commemoration of graduation and a part of your life.

Did you find a photographer?

Do you plan on taking graduation photos? If so, you should schedule them before your ceremony! Pick a good day when not a lot of students are out and about, you’ll get amazing photos.

Are you planning a graduation party?

Graduation parties are always fun! It’s a great opportunity to celebrate such a life-achieving moment with the people you love.

Don’t forget to write thank-you notes to all your past professors!

Professors had a huge impact on your college career and should be thanked for it. By thanking them, it works in your favor. It is important to keep a positive relationship with your professors and you never know when it will come in handy.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.
