“Some people say that liberal arts are losing popularity because people are becoming more focused on career preparation.  We say that there is no better career preparation that the liberal arts.”

Career-oriented students who are looking for a strong educational foundation should look no further than liberal arts universites. Universities which feature these programs offer the chance for students to explore classes outside of their major and become more well-rounded learners. Obtaining experience in a variety of fields is what makes a liberal arts education such a valuable asset to any student entering the job market. Students who are unsure of which career they wish to pursue can rest assured knowing that they have knowledge in a wider variety of fields than many of their competitors may have. Students with particular career paths in mind can also benefit from having a liberal arts background.  Through their diverse educational background,

Finances play an important part in any college experience. While not every student has the same financial resources or academic profile when selecting a university, many will be eligible for financial aid in the form of scholarships. Scholarships can make obtaining a college education a possibility, but at Truman they also offer the chance of work experience that is significant preparation for a career.  

 

At Truman State University, students with larger sums of scholarship funding are eligible to work “scholarship service.” Students who perform these service hours each semester earn more in scholarship renewals than students who do not work scholarship jobs. Here are a few more of the advantages gained by working a scholarship job at Truman.

维持好成绩是令很多大学生感到有压力的事情,因为家长,教授,导师,朋友都在强调高的绩点(GPA)对于大学和以后就业来说十分重要。绩点是如何计算的呢?你是否需要完美的绩点才能成功呢?答案可能令你吃惊。

GPA英语全称是grade point average,意思就是平均分,美国的GPA满分是4分,即A=4,B=3,C=2, D=1, 学生根据在课上的表现来获得相应的字母分数(Letter Grade)。 GPA的计算一般是将每门课程的字母分数(Letter Grade)乘以学时(Credit Hours),得到荣誉点(Honor Point),所有的荣誉点加起来以后除以总的学时(Credit Hours),得出平均分(GPA)。请参考下表。

A = 4 honor points

B = 3 honor points

C = 2 honor points

D = 1 honor points

F = 0 honor points

Class 1 – Letter grade x credit = honor points

Class 2 – Letter grade x credit = honor points

Near the end of each semester, many college students begin to feel increased pressure from their many responsibilities. With the due dates for final exams, papers, and projects looming ever closer, many students find difficulty in keeping up with their responsibilities for their classes, jobs, clubs, organizations, social groups, relationships, and personal life. For some, managing to fulfill expectations for all of these areas can begin to feel overwhelming.

 The United States, like many large countries, has a variety of cultural differences based on region. While the people of the U.S. share many values, activities, and pastimes, there are always new experiences to be found through travel. The Midwestern region of the U.S. is home to its own unique culture and activities. Kirksville, the small city in the State of Missouri where Truman State University is located, is home to many of its own traditions and activities. If you’re looking for new ways to experience American Midwestern culture during the fall, look no further than this great little town.

很多到美国大学留学的学生都是第一次到达美国。长时间住在异国他乡难免让人产生压力,文化差异的存在又将这种不适感无限的放大。像其他国家一样,体验美国文化会让你产生一种独一无二的感受。
