Nailing the mid-semester internship hunt

What many Gators here on campus may not realize early on in their college career, is that in today's world, landing a great internship is a very crucial and beneficial step in the career process. Internships enable students to become part of an association relevant in their field of study which then helps them become that much closer to landing their perfect job career.
However, being thrown into a campus with thousands and thousands of students and knowing that each student near you is probably on the same internship hunt, can be quite daunting. But, this should not halt ones confidence and exuberance in their attempt to find their perfect internship. But how to start?
There are several career-based resources found amongst the University of Florida which can help you with your internship-hunting needs. Amongst these resources, the Career Resource Center here at the University of Florida, located on the first floor of the J. Wayne Reitz Union catering to the Division of Student Affairs, is probably the best asset that students can use in order to figure out and sort their bearings when considering an internship. 
Not only does the resource enable you to search the web of several available internships in your area, it also will show you internships available in differing states. The career resource center allows you to explore the set sites such as the career road maps link, research interested employers, and find potential internships related to your field of study. 
One majorly helpful online resource that the Career Resource Center allows Gators to explore is "". At this website, Gators can explore several internships that are currently available. The website will ask students what their major/interest of study is in and then students are then taken via website to another screen that corresponds to relevant internships. This site is very helpful and should definitely be a tool students should use if interested in this matter.
Internships are definitely a great way to advance yourself in your career. It shows dedication, hard-work, willingness to work, and passion for your future employers. There are thousands of internships available, although for the most part, this is misconstrued and thus students do not even put themselves out there.
Do not fret. There are employers and possible internship companies dying to have you become apart of their institution. Students should consider heavily in getting an internship and can use several career resource facets in their mission in finding one. 
The career resource center as stated is located on the first floor of the Reitz Union building, but can also be found at the following wed address:

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
