About a month ago, but what seems like forever ago, we were stressing out over finals and saying good bye to our new, college friends. The holidays were celebrated, along with passing grades, and then suddenly we found ourselves packing everything back up and returning to UML. It’s crazy how time flies.
Even though we’re still stuck in the winter break mode of over eating and Netflix binging, we’re excited to be back, and excited to see all of you again. With that, here are some reminders and some advice to get you back on track.
First of all, the add/drop period ends on February 1st, so if you want to add a class or aren’t happy with another, you can change your schedule until that date.
Second, if you haven’t bought your books yet, the book store now price matches! If you find a book for a lower price elsewhere, such as Amazon, you can bring proof of this to the store. This can save you time and you won’t have to pay for shipping!
Third, make sure you get yourself out of that winter slump. It’s hard from going to having nothing to do to a full schedule, but you can do it. During the next couple of weeks take time to schedule out your time for homework, working out, etc., as well as when to get up and when to leave for class. This can put you back in your usual routine and set you up for a great semester.
Also, don’t forget about all the fun things that happen on campus! Pay attention to the Announcements emails you receive from UML, as they contain information about all the events going on every day. From hockey games to dinners to club fairs, you’ll never be bored. Who knows, maybe you’ll meet some new friends.
Lastly, we as Enrollment Ambassadors want to make sure you have the best semester ever, and this is why we will soon be posting weekly videos and lists, just for you. Each post will contain a list of twenty things (for the incoming class of 2020) about college or UMass Lowell that we believe is important. We can’t wait for you to see what we’ve come up with!
Good luck to everyone this semester, and keep up the hard work!
