Worry no more! Your Peer Academic Leader Emily is hosting a workshop Wednesday 11/5 to walk you through the process.
Racing to save the day – more like racing to save us from a fifth year – Dr. Vicki Hill elaborately explained the University Curriculum and its recent changes to a great turnout of first, second and third year students.
When the UC was initially put into place, it put the students it affected in to a frantic craze and scare in regards to finishing within the planned four year period. With more pillars and requirements than I could count on two hands, most students – especially engineers – feared they would not be able to finish on time.
Dr. Hill clearly explained how the first year or two of a new curriculum will always face its challenges and be opened to various changes, as the University has accommodated to. Dr. Hill elaborately explained the changes made and just how plausible graduating in four years truly is, thus, saving the day here at Marry Peyttles!
Thanks Dr. Hill!
Hey Mary Peyttles Family!
Outdoor Movie Night 2014: Nightmare on Peyton Parkway, is coming up next Tuesday, the 28th of October!

It’s that time of the semester….midterms. We are all feeling the pressure. Less time to hang out with friends, less time to sleep, and more time worrying about classes. Try to hang in there! Fall Break is just around the corner. Try to get ahead this weekend: get some sleep and get some of your studying done to help lower your stress for next week. If you are having trouble balancing study time, find a friend or accountability partner to help you out. Don’t stress yourself out by procrastinating. One week of hard work and you’re free! Hang in there, you can do it!
P.S. Come get free Cane’s tomorrow night and decorate a door stop!
