I recently called up a friend (and a first-semester neighbor of mine) who lived in the Graduate Residence Hall and spoke with her about her new internship. She started to work on May 18th as a Medical Accountant intern to fulfill her CPT requirement. CPT stands for Curricular Practice Training. Every F-1 student can apply for CPT once they declare their major of studies and have their grade average point met with CPT requirement. When a student decides to apply for CPT, the first thing to do is to attend one of the workshops provided by International Student Affairs. There are application forms available at ISA office and online. 


Maggie: Hello, Ling! Longtime no see. So let's get started, shall we? How did you find your internship?

Ling: Yes, I am happy to share my experience. I tried to apply for summer internships online first and went to quite a lot of interviews. I ended up getting a job through a connection I had. The intervie

Brooklyn Botanical Garden

 

A few weeks ago, a friend invited me to visit the 35th anniversary Sakura Matsuri, Brooklyn Botanical Garden’s annual cherry blossom festival. We spent half a day touring. This is the first time I visited Brooklyn Botanical Garden and I might just go again in the future! It was a beautiful and large garden with many blooms and a gift shop inside. If you’re interested in learning about different kinds of plants and flowers (especially peonies and cherries) I urge you to go. The best time to visit is during the month of March or April. Here are some pictures I took.

When the Finals Week is here, it's normal to be stressed. Axinn Library’s Floor six,seven and eight are designated quiet floors. If you find it better to study in a quiet and organized space, utilize well of the library! Also, listen to what others say about what makes their studying efficient!

Below is a random conversation between me and Jingfeng Wang, an MBA student with a concentration in Finance.

Maggie: Do you have any special techniques in studying? 

Jingfeng(Laughs): Not really. It's really important to be focused in class though. 

Maggie: Do you keep your own routine during Finals Week?

Jingfeng: No. I go to classes and study in the evening and night. 

Maggie: So, do you actually stay on a diet?

Jingfeng: Yes. I take boiled eggs for extra calcium and protein. 

During the Finals Week,

This week, I went outside of my comfort zone and participated in a speech contest held by ZAGA and NYSSCPA (The New York State Society of CPAs). No matter what rank I earned, I gave the speech contest a try. Since the speech is constrained to two minutes, I went fairly fast. On-stage speaking has been something I really enjoy doing since junior school when I started to learn English as a second language. For those who are preparing for individual project presentations, remember to fight the stage fright and be confident. 

Below is my speech script for anyone who is interested:

My Dream

 

As an international student living in the United States, I know that I need to keep it up all the time. I am not a lazy person, not a bad student. As a matter of fact, I'm a hard-working student and a diligent person. But sometimes I have to tell myself: hey, you know you might need to make extra efforts because, this is not your native language. This is not whe

Hofstra University, located on Long Island, New York, is famous for the blooming tulips around campus in the spring. Tulips are the national flower of Holland and Turkey. Surprisingly, there are also tulips in Tibet, China. These days, when the raindrops are sufficient and sunshine is plentiful, there are many flowers blooming around campus. Not to miss the beauty, I took a few photos to share with you. Enjoy!

 A few weeks ago, the Long Island Chapter of Project Management Institute sponsored an event on campus, 'What is Project Management and How Can It Help You in Your Career?' I didn't get to attend the event but was still able to receive the slides of the presentation from Hofstra. Below are some of the things I found useful from the slides of the presentation.

Teamwork and cooperation are highly regarded in school - business schools in particular - where you are very likely to work in a team of three or four on a project. “A project team often includes people who don't usually work together – sometimes from different organizations and across multiple geographies.” The processes fall into five groups:

Initiating

Planning

Executing

Monitoring/Controlling

Closing

In school, our team projects are usually not as complicated as those in companies, but they prepare us for the real world. We are more focused on multi-tasking and c

On a beautiful Wednesday, I am on my way to the Office of Human Resources to send in an overdue timesheet. It's spring-cleaning time, and apparently I need to be efficient in tidying up my room and to find where my other time-sheets are. Surprisingly, I saw a fruit and vegetable market outside of the Mack Student Center and saw crowds of people getting food and chatting. I sat for a while and watched what people were getting. Corn! Strawberries! I am happy that I found this market because I am going to do some grocery shopping for this week! After I dropped off my timesheet, I joined the group of happy faces and got myself two ears of corn, two potatoes and four tomatoes. These fresh veggies made my day! I boiled the corn right when I get back to my apartment.

This week Earth Day is being celebrated on campus and worldwide. Earth Day promotes protecting our environment, which is always a good cause, right?

Summer is almost here, and you will need a place to stay during your summer internship, right? Below is some advice to help you find summer housing.

If you're staying in Long Island or the Hofstra University area, offcampushousing.hofstra.edu is a good source to look at. If you want to live in Manhattan for the summer, there are opportunities to find people who already live there and you can sublease, meaning rent a room from them temporarily. Sharing apartments lower the cost of rent. Keep in mind that summer activities will require you to spend money, and your internship might not be paying enough for all the fun, so saving money wherever you can will be very helpful.When looking for housing, keep in mind that convenience of transportation and area safety come first. Also, be aware that some apartment rentals require you to sign up with an agency and you may need to pay an agency fee before you move in. If you have a vast network of people who already had experiences in ren

On a beautiful day, I interviewed Yina Peng, a student enrolled in the TESOL program outside the Student Center Café. She had just come from the Spring Career Fair. Yina started the TESOL program in the fall of 2014 and is graduating this May.  

The first question I throw out to her is which TESOL course seemed most difficult to her. She admitted that it was SED 267, Second Education. She mentioned that this course required her to be familiar with the K-12 education system curriculum, which was challenging because some of her classmates were already certified teachers before entering the program. Without much teaching experience in the United States, Yina had a more difficult time comprehending the course as compared to her American classmates. However, she was able to achieve a high GPA at the end of last semester. Her favorite course is Studies in Etymology, which is about the Latin origin of English language. “
