More Reading?! :(

I never could have imagined how much reading one has to consume as a college student. Tirelessly pouring over pages upon pages of material completely unrelated to your major just to fulfill some General Education requirement can quickly become a dull and daunting task ... if you let it. So, what do I suggest? Make reading fun! Reward yourself for reading. Choose your favorite candy (I like Skittles or gummie bears). Then, place one candy at a "stopping point" on each page. This could be at the end of a paragraph, column or page. Every time you reach a stopping point, reward yourself with a piece of candy. For those really boring readings, reward yourself more often. This simple positive reinforcement will make reading more fun and help you get through those boring text. It works. Trust me!

Try it and Tweet your books with your candies to: @SUCommuter! :)

Have you ever stopped to consider the value in pursuing a higher education? Is it really worth the money? Will I eventually obtain a better job in a career that I love? Will the countless hours of studying, stress and extra work be well worth it in the end? These are questions that almost every potential graduate student contemplates. If you have ever had any thoughts, concerns or questions about pursuing a higher education, attend the Commuter Luncheon on April 17th from 1:30-2:30 p.m. in the Nanticoke Room located in the Guerieri University Center and listen to Salisbury University's own Dr. Clifton Griffin (Graduate Studies and Research Dean) explore these topics and many more.

Fitness is Key!

By: Connor McNeil, Fall 2013 Commuter Assistant

There are several ways to be physically active on campus at Salisbury University. The University has several facilities including Maggs Gym, University Fitness Center (UFC) and the indoor tennis courts that students can use to stay in shape. Along with physical activity, a proper diet is a crucial component to being fit. There are plenty of healthy options at the Commons. Instead of getting gold and crispy, try to replace high fatty and fried foods with options like "Plato's Plate" and the salad bar.

Stay tuned for all things Commuter ;)

A-ttendance

If you are like most people and do not like throwing hard earned money in the garbage, then it is imperative to go to class! For an in-state student, each credit hour is $244.00. So consider each class that you skip as money wasted. Remember your primary objective for attending college is to obtain an education, so make sure you have fun, but make school your #1 priority!
