HOT WEEK!

Please be advised that week will be very HOT!!! Weather channels are stating anywhere from 80 to 100 degree this week! Please have a waterbottle on you at all times. 

Some tips to keep you hydrated! 

1. Have a water bottle and realize we have a filtered water bottle refiller in the LSU to the left of the Student Bookstore! 

2. Have a smoothie, partially a all fruit smoothie because those fruits will keep you hydrated as well

3. keep fruit handy as stated before it is hydrating 

4. keep in cool area or in the shade. If you can keep out of the sun, then please stay out of it. 

5. Gatorate and powerade are also another way to keep hydrated

Most importantly remind yourself to keep hydrated! Especially in this heat! We don’t want anyone getting heat stroke!

Have a wonderful Monday Toro’s! For this week, there will be a blog about the items to do around Campus sometime around Wednesday! =]

Here is an interesting article on pet peeves from college professors.

This is definitely something that every student should read. It is useful as a result of us understanding that our PROFESSOR is a PROFESSOR NOT A FRIEND.

5 small tips before you start at CSUDH

5. Parking.. will be horrible..

I think that is the best word I could use. The first two week of school are going to be pretty horrible for parking for basically a couple of reasons. 1. We are not  a huge school therefore space is limited when it comes to parking so a suggestion get there 1-1.5 hours beforehand for parking alone. Plus if you live kinda far, add 30 minutes for driving time. 2) People are trying to get the best spots even though their class will most than likely end after no more than hour. It honestly depends on your major. 3) PARKING IS FREE UNTIL SEPTEMBER 1ST!

4. Expect a lot of people to CRASH

Even though they do have a new process of eliminating almost the entire crash process. There are still going to be some people who will want to crash the class. If you are freshmen reading this, you may not understand what the term crash means. What it entails is that a person who is not enrolled nor waitlisted is trying to get into the class. It is a bit of dangerous thing especially when doing more than 1 class because most teachers will turn you away and say well you will have to wait until next week when I can officially Drop people. Also the terms Drop  means the teacher will essentially drop the student form the class, they are permanently erased in a sense. As well Waitlisted  means that you are on a list where if a person drops the class for whatever reason, you have a higher chance of getting in. Make sure if it is a major class, waitlist as soon as possible, DON’T CRASH!

 

3. You are going to get lost … a few times

It is perfectly fine, it is going to happen to either a transfer or a freshmen student, more freshmen than transfer ( sorry but the truth). Just remember where the LSU (Loker student union ) and the library is and you are going to perfectly fine. Also a tip, Go look for your classes maybe a couple of days beforehand, it will help you before more familiar with your classroom setting but more importantly the school itself. As I said before, we are a small school therefore you will get to know the campus quick

 

2. Read the Syllabus.

If the syllabus is available to you on Toro.csudh.edu aka BLACKBOARD: a servor that will direct you to a place where you will find all your class, documents, etc. Similar to my.csudh.edu except purely used for Academics. Look at your syllabus, be prepared to ask question or have question thrown at you to answer from the professor. Bonus points:  If you have read the syllabus, make it obvious to the teacher because It will show the you are a hardworker and the teacher look favorable to that.

 

1. BE YOURSELF

This is probably the most important thing to know before going to CSUDH or anywhere as a matter of fact. People are going to like you as long as you are open to them and you are open to them about you. If you are worried about making friends, don’t worry you will.

On a personal note:  I come from San Diego area, so if you are nervous and need someone to talk to , don’t hesitate! But do realize that making friends is easy. =]

sorry for the delay

My laptop broke on me and then I went on a hiatus because I am currently on vacation! I went to Yellowstone which is oh so amazing (which had no internet at all!) and I am going to be working on it tonight so don’t worry! Everything should be ready by tomorrow morning =] 

Remember Freshmen and transfer! I can help you with mostly any questions you have (especially transfers, because I am transfer student myself!)

TORO MONDAYS WEEK 1: The campus and parking lots

So this is a map of California state university, Dominguez Hills. I will be using this as my reference as I talk about the different parking lots and what building they are adjacent to. So if you think this map is a bit small (which I would probably think so,) then here is the link to the actual map http://www4.csudh.edu/campus-map-directions

Parking Lot 3: So if you look at the map, You will find parking lot 3 in the top left corner on the map, it is adjacent to the building James L Welch Hall  number 23( aka Welch Hall), in this building, you will find the cashiers station, various offices including child development, career office, nursing etc. You will also which is very important for every student, the *drum roll please* the Financial aid office. If you are a freshmen, you will learn how important this office is, transfer students will somewhat hate the office because it can be complicated and current students already know the struggles. The Welch hall is also next to the Theater number 45 , this building can be important but unfortunately on this campus, it is not taken very seriously. 

Parking lot 6: this can be found right below Parking lot 3 (on the map). Once parked in parking Lot 6, Right in front of you will be the sculpture garden (between numbers 45 and 40). Next to the garden will be the Lacorte Hall (number 40) which is a 3 story building with the 1st floor accommodating art students with a gallery, studies and macs. The second floor, is for English, ESL and music majors (for the most part) and the 3rd floor accommodates professors and their offices.  

Parking Lot 2: This parking lot can be found upper right corner of the map. This particular parking lot is adjacent to the Small College complex’s. These are a series of college building that are used for various classes but there are a lot of building and offices around in that area anywhere from jump start building to Graduate studies offices to others. Also note, that there is Parking lot 1 Which is across from the entrance to the dorms, people can also park there when having classes at the small college complex, it is a little bit of a longer walk but its okay. 

Before getting to Parking Lot 7, there are the dorms (number 70-71), it is a place where people who live a lot further and cannot make a commute can stay for a certain price and will live with roommates. Many people consider this a way of obtaining your college experience. I will be having a special 2 part dorm Special later on in the summer

Parking Lot 7:  This is the other parking lot that is closest to the library (and is especially used during midterms and Finals). It is also the parking lot that is closest to South Academic Complex (or Sac number 100-104) . It is also the building that is closest to number 50 The science and mathematics building.  You can guess for the most part what this building is used for. 

will be able to finish the rest tomrorow which is just an explanation of the Loker student union (number 26), the library (number 20), the social and bevior building (number 30 and the Student Health center ( number 25)

I’MMM BACK!.. I think

So, I realize that I have been M.I.A very badly lately but it has been for a good reason I swear! ( I was on my own version of academic probation, but I ended up with a 3.33 for the semester so I am very proud of myself) 

ANYWHO!

So for the summer, I will be starting a series called TORO MONDAYS!  so basically the series will be about csudh (obviously) but a different aspect of it, like dorming, eating, activies around the school, places around the school, the campus itself.. etc. 

So I Hope you enjoy it!
