I went to a college friend's wedding in Manhattan two weeks ago! I know both the bride and groom from college. For those who have never been to an American wedding before, I would like to tell you about what it is like. Usually, both the bride and groom's family and friends are invited in advance. Sometimes there will be a pre-wedding party, and it is less formal than the wedding ceremony. When you are not sure what to wear on the wedding day, opt for something formal. And if you need to travel for the wedding, pick clothes that are versatile and light enough to pack. My friend's wedding was held in Manhattan, so I booked a hotel and took the LIRR the day before. I packed two summer dresses with me. Interesting enough, I ran into two college friends on the wedding. They're both from China – small world! One thing I noticed is every guest is taken an instant picture at the entrance of the venue and all of our pictures are put in a photo book with wishes written down. All in all

Hot Hot Hot~ Everybody gets so hot in the summer! Wondering where to go in order to beat the heat and stay cool? Below is a list of some places  to go on Long Island.

夏日炎炎,在长岛如何避暑呢?小编给你一些出游小建议~

1. Montauk 蒙托克小镇

Montauk is a really fun place to go in the summer. It has a really beautiful beach for people to spend their holidays. Also, you can see the sunrise in the morning because Montauk is on the eastern end of the South Shore of Long Island. Depending on traffic, it usually takes about 2 hours drive from the university to Montauk.

蒙托克小镇是纽约人夏日出游的好地方,它拥有十分美丽的沙滩同时你还能在那里看到绝美的日出,因为蒙托克位于长岛的最东端。一般在不堵车的情况下,从学校开

As a graduate student, you have two housing choices. You can live in graduate housing on campus or you can get an apartment.

As I have been looking for an apartment myself, I decided to write a blog about the apartment hunting process. Now before you start looking for a place to stay, think about the following questions: Do you need roommates? A benefit to having roommates is that you will never feel lonely. And if you forget to bring your key with you or you need someone to help you get your delivery when you are on vacation, they will be there. However, if you like living alone, you may want to consider finding a one bedroom apartment.Which town do you want to live in? As many of us noticed, a lot of Chinese students decided to live in different areas. Some of them live further from the campus than other students. I frequently heard places like Hicksville, Levittown and Westbury. It is important to keep in mind that some of you will drive to school for classes, so the dista

Recently I spoke with a friend Mengxue who majors in Information System. She started interning in May for Publishers Clearing House. She shared with me that before she got the internship, she went through an interview with four or five interviewers. Apparently she did well during the screening and now she is working with the analytics team on various projects. 'Career Services has been helping me on resume critique, which is very helpful. I am appreciative of what Career Services has done for me.' She said.

 When I mentioned the daily basis responsibilities and duties, she said that she needed to download forms from internal databases and work on numerical analysis. This job requires her to apply what she has learned in school to a work setting. I think this kind of experience must be very rewarding to Mengxue.

She shared with me that networking and especially social media is very important to her. She utilizes LinkedIn, in particular. Mengxue has added a

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!
